Musikmesse 2005IK Multimedia announces CSR-1 Classik Studio Reverb

IK Multimedia

IK Multimedia has announced CSR-1: Classik Studio Reverb, a suite of various reverbs modeled after classic high end studio reverb hardware masterpieces.

While impulse reverbs have gained a lot of popularity because of their particular emulation of environment reverberation, they typically lack the particular musical sound and editing possibilities that famous studio digital reverbs have always offered. As an alternative, or additional, virtual studio tool, high quality algorithm-based reverbs like CSR-1 are designed to get the maximum musicality and a sound that top engineers have made hit records with for years.

CSR-1 offers a suite of reverbs that are modeled to the sound of popular classic reverbs with the advantage of full editing control to perfectly fit any musical need. An high quality, musical reverb processor with flexibility previously available only in high-end, signature hardware reverb processors.

Four reverbs in one
CSR-1 includes a suite of four different reverbs algorithms, each with its own interface and parameters:

  • Classik Hall / Room
  • Classik Ambience
  • Classik Plate
  • Classik Inverse

Easy and advanced mode
CSR-1 offers 2 operating modes for each of the four algorithms: Easy and Advanced. In Easy mode the user will be able to quickly edit the most important parameters in a very efficient way. In Advanced mode the user will have full access to more than 50 reverb parameters, including completely assignable Matrix Modulations and Macros. These two available editing modes make CSR-1 a perfect solution for a wide range of users from beginners to pros.

Advanced reverb editing
Matrix Modulation allows for any of the reverb parameters to be controlled by two internal LFOs and two internal Envelope generators. This offers the ability to create complex and articulated reverb effects that can go way beyond what is normally expected from a conventional reverb processor. All Matrix Modulations are completely user definable. Macros allow for simultaneous control (with a single slider) over many reverbs' parameters, with different depth and polarity for very smooth morphing between different reverberant spaces. Any parameter is automated via DAW's proprietary automation, with full and seamless integration allowing efficient and convenient use of today's most advanced control surfaces.

Additional CSR-1 features:

  • State of the art DSP based reverb algorithms.
  • Specific Algorithm-based Parameters list.
  • Highly customizable Modulation Matrix.
  • Smooth parameters morphing capabilities.
  • Adjustable input and output reverb width.
  • High quality reverb filtering.
  • Two internal LFOs.
  • Two internal Envelope generators.
  • Full automation.

CSR-1 will be available by the 3rd quarter 2005 and will have an MSRP of $/€ 399 and will support all the most popular plug-in platforms in both Windows XP and MacOS X including VST, RTAS, AU and DX. A TDM version for ProTools systems will be available by the 4th quarter 2005.
