REmatrix by the joint venture of MoReVoX and Overloud is an extremely powerful convolution reverb plugin that is easy to use. It allows the user to combine five different impulse responses loaded simultaneously. There are over 200 to choose from. There is also a built-in algorithmic reverb that can be mixed with the convolution. It should be noted that Overloud is the creator of the impressive algorithmic reverb — Breverb-2! I'm sure they borrowed an algorithm or two from that beast!!! The impulse response levels are controlled by five sliders that are very responsive and accurate (Hall, Room, Plate, Early, Special). In addition, there are six Master Effects available to refine the overall ambient tone, which is graphically organized. For more creative control, it has two parametric EQs, compressor, panning, drive, delay, etc. A convolution reverbs main goal is to recreate realistic environments — real spaces; yet, many of these plugins sound cold, digital, and sterile. REmatrix's library of more than 400 presets boasts a wide variety of spaces. At least a couple hundred of them sound airy, warm, natural, and inviting. I'm not a reverb expert, so I rely on tweaking the presets and saving. These presets serve as an excellent starting point. Some of the things I especially dig about REmatrix include:
Straightforward, uncluttered interface (GUI).
Flexible and creative.
Cool name — REmatrix.
Simple workflow with relatively shallow learning curve considering the flexibility.
Creative control over the nuances of the generated ambience.
Excellent factory library. Props to MoReVoX.
Ability to create a customized library.
Latency? I can't hear any.
Question? Will future revisions allow users to use side-chain signal to control the compressor? Speaker or amp simulations?
REmatrix gives anyone working with digital audio the much sought after magical ingredients — power, flexibility, control, and ease of use. In the right hands (and ears) this would certainly be "the most impressive reverb ever created by a plugin." I highly recommend this fine convolution reverb and give it two spacious thumbs up. OverLoud has done it again — this time in a partnership with MoReVoX. Thank you both for creating such an amazing reverb plugin.
