Indeed.

The Cinematic Rooms algorithm does not use samples or Fusion-IR as in many other LiquidSonics reverbs, but I am pleased to say that using a novel algorithm I have achieved the goal I set for myself.

it's not like it uses any less CPU right?
It’s a simpler interface with less options, which is sometimes a plus! The Lite version uses the same CPU as the full version for the same features, but as the full version has extra stuff which also uses CPU, the full version can use more CPU (the main heavier feature is the frequency time modulators, which are missing in TCLite).

The license for the full version lets you run both, btw.
yeah i bought it on blerk friday.
the multiband section is one of the best parts, that's why i've never installed the lite version.
I try to use it 'subtractively', not sure if that makes any less of an impact on the CPU?...
as in - does shortening some bands (without lengthening any others) use more or less processing power...?

i tend to use Pro-R in a similar way, but more for 'specialised' sound design stuff, not so much rooms etc

Anyone made any good semi-realistic plate-esq presets for Tai Chi they'd like to share by any chance? I haven't really explored the possibility of plates in Tai Chi yet.
I'm still trying to get my head around the advanced tab.

Yeah it is cool, and I could achieve a really unique tail FX sound I loved with it, but at the time, I'd kinda maxed out my reverb buying spree and couldn't really justify the full version for that alone (the ducker is also cool, but you can achieve that by other means with regular reverbs, and I didn't find the low res options that compelling).

So for me, TC Lite gave the core TC algorithm, in a focused interface which was nice, and really only cost me about $30 or so bucks, so was well worth it... :tu:

If that section is active, it's being processed, and thus uses more CPU than when it's disabled.

Don't think so no...

MB looks similar to what Pro-R and Chromaverb do (decay time multiplier)

to me the most attractive feature is separate late/early, and earlies do sound nice.

I do wonder why they decided to release Cinematic rooms via LiquidSonics and Tai Chi via Reverb Foundry.
Imo it adds confusion for no apparent reason

Had it not been a thread on Gearspace, I would not have even realised there was a connection between the two companies.

Indeed would be curious to know what they use as the deciding factor.


Maybe it is in their descriptions?

LiquidSonics is solely owned and run by the developer, Matt H.

Reverb Foundry is a separate company that's a partnership/relationship between Matt and Dave Bryce (a bit of an industry legend), set up firstly to make the Bricasti controller, and HD-Cart, an emulation of a rare expansion system for the Lexicon LX480 (you can read more about the LARES system here: http://www.muzines.co.uk/articles/illus ... space/2902)

(I don't know if Dave had a hand sourcing this 480L, or convincing Matt to model it, but I'd guess some combination of those...)

While it's not clear, and Matt hasn't explicitly stated what comes under what, I'd guess that the Reverb Foundry stuff is for things that Matt and Dave want to model, and a lower key outlet for Matt's more niche products and ideas, with LiquidSonics being his main products.

I don't think it's an "algos go here, and IR's go here" type deal, or a "models of hardware go here, new non-modelled reverb plugins go here" type deal etc...

found a neat price for Tai Chi and Lite (75 and 35), but thinking i might just get light instead

i kind of want it, but not sure i need it.

Well i guess the "want" was bigger than the need.

Got the Lite version for now, and after playing with it a bit, i don't think i'll regret it. Gorgeous reverb, under-rated imo.
I absolutely adore room/garage early reflection portion, very natural easy to dial in short "ambience" type verb.
