Reverb Foundry has announced their new flagship reverb, Tai Chi. Here's what they say:
Combining state of the art DSP with a unique set of audio crafting tools and techniques, Tai Chi redefines the sound design standards of reverb technology while integrating fine control over fidelity and dynamics.
At the heart of Tai Chi is a Feedback Delay Network engine that takes the art to a new dimension creating a thick, rich and luscious chorus unlike any other reverb on the market.
What really sets Tai Chi apart from the pack are a useful set of onboard sound design options that are fully integrated into the reverb itself. These include dynamics processors, multi-band filters and fidelity tools. The onboard compressor and ducker can be set to control the late reverb while the preserving the integrity of critical early reflections. Up to four bands of multi-band reverb decay time allow surgical sonic sculpturing above and beyond the usual reverb contouring controls, unlocking the ability to take the spectral shape of the decay into all sorts of interesting places. The bit-crushing and density controls deliver the grit and dirt that gave vintage reverbs their character and flavor, while providing the option to apply signal degradation to different elements such as the reflections or the tail, or apply the master EQ's low / high roll-off and shelving filters for just the right finish.
Tai Chi Lite boasts the same lusciously chorused sound engine as Tai Chi, but in exchange for a more affordable sticker price drops the surround, dynamics, multi-band and some of the fidelity tools.
