GPU Audio Announces Living Spatial Reverb in Partnership with Outer Echo and MNTRA Instruments

18th January 2024

MNTRA, GPU Audio, and Outer Echo have teamed up to introduce 'Living Sky', their new spatial reverb plugin designed to revolutionize three-dimensional spatial audio production. This collaboration combines MNTRA's skill in developing immersive virtual instruments, GPU Audio's advanced audio processing, and Outer Echo's expertise in DSP solutions for spatial applications.

Living Sky offers an expansive collection of acoustic spaces, enabling creators to transform sound in imaginative ways. Unlike standard reverb plugins that offer limited motion within a space, Living Sky claims to "brings the space itself to life", creating dynamic and organic audio processing.

The plugin aims to introduce groundbreaking reverberation effects to music, gaming, and immersive experiences. It supports multiple decoding formats, including Stereo, Binaural, 5.1, 7.1, 7.1.2, 7.1.4, 9.1.6, 22.2, and Ambisonics. This versatility positions Living Sky as an essential tool for spatial mixes and compositions across various mediums. It will feature a wide range of presets, options, and content collections, catering to post-production and audio professionals seeking high-quality, authentic, or fantastical spaces with deep and intuitive creative control.

Living Sky stands out in the spatial reverb plugin market by combining up to 5th-order Ambisonics processing with proprietary extended-range ultrasonic convolution technology. This innovation enables unprecedented channel counts and a level of spatialization previously unachievable, opening new avenues for creative expression.

This plugin is a result of a partnership with GPU Audio, leveraging the power of Graphic Cards to utilize thousands of cores for advanced audio processing. Meanwhile, Outer Echo focuses on creating high-quality spatial audio signal processing architectures, and MNTRA Instruments is dedicated to developing next-generation audio tools that reshape our interaction with music and sound design in both linear and interactive media.

Keep an eye out for further announcements at the upcoming NAMM show in Anaheim, LA from January 24-28, 2024. Living Sky is scheduled for release later this year.
