112dB announces the release of Mikron Reverb, an audio effect plugin for Windows and Mac.
This colorful, stompbox inspired plugin is the little brother of 112dB's Redline Reverb. It has the same warm and lush, 'Lexicon-ish' sound, but a completely different mode of operation. In Mikron Reverb the majority of the parameters of Redline Reverb are hidden behind just a few intuitive knobs. It incorporates an intelligent algorithm that determines the ideal settings for those parameters for a wide variety of room characteristics.
The idea behind it: when you dial in a certain kind of reverb you will usually not be interested in the reverberations of all possible rooms and positions in those rooms, but only those that will give you a superb or interesting sound. It's those great sounding reverberations that 112dB tried to capture in our algorithm.
What does this mean in practice? Controlling multiple parameters with one knob saves a lot of unnecessary tweaking. Whatever knob you turn, the reverberation keeps sounding great, just different. And that means you can focus on what is really important, your music, instead of technical details.
- With a very few knobs you can create many different spaces.
- Sound keeps evolving in a musically pleasing way.
- Tonality remains intact overtime.
- extremely long reverb times (which makes it an excellent reverb for ambient sounds).
- Intuitive, easy to use interface.
- Low CPU.
- NKS support.
Mikron Reverb is now available for an introductory price of $29 (normal price $39).
An unrestricted 60-day evaluation version is available from: www.112db.com/download/mikron/reverb/?demo
In addition 112dB has announced that its effect plugins Mikron Cascade and Mikron Delay now offer NKS-support, allowing direct control of the plugin parameters from Native Instruments hardware and software.
Existing owners can update at no additional charge. The updates can be found at: www.112db.com/download
