KResearch releases KR-Space v1.0


KResearch has released KR-Space, a modular multi-effect plug-in which can produce a multitude of different types of effects, from traditional echoes and reverbs, to very complex soundscapes, modulation and filtering effects, resonating echoes and reflections, saturation effects and other unusual types of effects.

To achieve this wide range of effect creation KR-Space uses a proprietary design and a flexible modular architecture where the different available modules can be switched on and off or routed in various combinations allowing more flexibility in effect design.

The modular architecture also allows more efficient CPU utilization since only the modules that are switched on contribute to the CPU overhead.

KR-Space introduces the Animated Object Space Emulator (AOSE) where the user has control over a number of spherical objects which are placed in the virtual environment and affect the sound output in a multitude of ways. These objects have various user controlled characteristics like size, resonance, oscillation frequency, reflection characteristics, etc. and can be animated (moved) in the virtual environment affecting the sound output.

Additionally, the main reverberation engine features separate damping controls for early and late reflections allowing more detail filtering control, thus expanding the total range of available effects. It also introduces KResearch's Asymmetric Reflection Scheme for more realistic reverb and echoes creation.
