Acon Digital's reverb plug-in Verberate 2 has been announced as a nominee for the 35th Annual NAMM Technical Excellence & Creativity (TEC) Awards in the category of Outstanding Technical Achievement. To celebrate the nomination, Acon Digital has released a free version of Verberate called Verberate Basic along with updates to version 2.1 for the stereo and immersive Verberate editions.
Presented by The NAMM Foundation, The NAMM TEC Awards are bestowed annually in celebration of the pro audio community by recognizing the individuals, companies and technical innovations behind today's sound recordings, live performances, films, television, video games and other media.
The brand new and completely free Verberate Basic 2 offers four reverb programs based on presets from Verberate 2: Plate, Room, Hall and Lush Hall. These programs are based on the renowned Vivid Hall algorithm and were selected to showcase the audio quality and versatility of Verberate 2. The intuitive user interface has buttons to activate each reverb program along with a reverb mix knob. Verberate Basic 2 is available as of today from the Acon Digital web site.
Both Verberate 2 and the surround and immersive capable Verberate Immersive 2 were updated to version 2.1. The update brings negative Swirl values which can calm down the time variance if desired. A range of new presets were added to the extensive collection of factory presets. The CPU efficiency can now be further improved in certain situations by optionally allowing a selectable latency in the range 0 to 2048 samples. The track name and color is now indicated in the header of the plug-in window for a better overview if the host application supports it. Mac users will appreciate that the new versions work with the macOS Catalina update. The update is free of charge for Verberate 2.x and Verberate Immersive 2.x customers.
