Polaris is an echo/reverb plugin inspired by early hardware digital reverbs of the late 1970s and able to provide echo, ambience and reverb out of a single multitap delay line.

This technique has been extended by making the Echo tap recirculating with the Diffusion section, allowing longer reverb tails. Furthermore all taps can be edited to create your own room responses, resonant combs, Karplus-like tuned delay lines, Chorus, Flanging, Vibrato and much more.

Polaris also features some creative features like Shimmer, internal Sample Rate Reduction (useful to get a vintage digital sound), Stereo Width (Ping Pong delay) and Swell.

Specifications:

  • Single Multitap Delay Line.
  • Pre-Delay (NEW v1.5).
  • Early Reflections (8 Programmable Taps).
  • Diffusion (16 Programmable Modulated Taps).
  • Echo (Ms, Sync, Tuned, Long).
  • Echo Modulation.
  • Modulation Boost (NEW v1.5).
  • 3 Band Feedback Equalizer (NEW v1.5).
  • LFO (Sin/Tri/Rnd – Hz, Sync).
  • Shimmer.
  • Sample Rate Reduction.
  • Stereo Width.
  • Swell.

After evaluating seeming dozens of Reverb's including the free EMT 140 that came with my Universal Audio Apollo Twin Duo and wishing that the guys at FabFilter had a Reverb offering I settled on Audiority's Polaris to widen the effect I can get from a Reverb. While the EMT 140 is great, working quick with it as a VST is a pain due to the awkwardness of moving between presets. My DAW's built-in Reverb is okay but presets are limited and I need to spend too much time tuning it.

With Polaris I have 30 presets with a few dedicated to Echo and the rest Reverb which allows me to test some pretty dynamic effects without getting lost in hundreds of possibilities, but I have a wide enough range of sound so I can get close to something I want and then start fine tuning. With the cost of Polaris at only $45 it's a great effect to have close at hand for noob like me who is just starting to get a tiny part of their brain around the complexity of creating electronic music. I gave it eight stars because of limited presets and would rate it 10 with the addition of another 20 presets. I really like this plugin.
