R2 is a reverb with attitude. In many ways, it harkens back to classic reverbs of the 80's and 90's. The reverb tail is fat and full of movement. The chorus controls can even add subtle (or unsubtle) pitch effects. Whether it's a choir or a power ballad, R2 adds a rich character to the mix. But it doesn't end there. Like its little brother PhoenixVerb, R2 can also create rooms and plates of its own. The gate control has found special applications as an auto-ducker for dialog mixers or even for traditional mixes keeping the reverb under control. R2 is a traditional reverb with a modern attitude.
R2 has also been designed with ease of use as a primary concern. The most important parameters are always available, and a richer set of controls are available only a click away. Presets are organized with application-specific keywords, and the user can easily create new presets and keywords to tailor R2 to the needs of any particular facility.
R2 also supports external controllers that use the EuCon control. R2 can now be driven and automated directly from the channel strips of Avid and EuPhonix consoles. Whether the user is a weekend warrior or a busy professional, R2 fits into that user's workflow.
Now with the Version 2 update, R2 provides additional options. These include automatic CPU load management and a new Favorites list.
