Riviera is a free hybrid algorithmic-convolution reverb plugin for modeling specular acoustic reflections in N-dimensional orthotopes. e.g. string, plate, room, tesseract, and up (vooms or volume+room for short). Normally, direct computations in these spaces are expensive but some clever maths reduced the asymptotic costs to the point of practical use (e.g. a Reverb plugin). Parameterizing these spaces and then combining them with some fast time-varying frequency decay resulted in some interesting sounding impulse responses (IRs).


  • Low-latency, low CPU usage convolution.
  • Multi-threading support for modeling IRs in the background.
  • Fine-grain controls for parameterizing each voom's number of dimensions, size, offset from sound-source origin, and material reflection dB loss.
  • Time manipulation controls for delay, stretch, and linearity (RT60 ranges from 1 - 20 seconds!).
  • Fast frequency-dependent time-decay functions.
  • Pan / stereo / mix (wet/dry) controls.
  • Graphical user interface for displaying IR and spectrogram.


  • VST2: Windows 7+, 32/64-bit, Mac OS X 10.7+.
  • VST3, Windows 7+, 32/64-bit.
  • AudioUnit, Mac OS X 10.7+.
  • Minimum SSE2 supported processor with improvements if AVX enabled.

crashes WinXp Sp3 so i guess it is not supported. shame.

Thanks for the info. Only tested on Win10 Reaper and FL studio. Any info on DAW / host?

Crashes both EnergyXT2 and Savihost under XP x32.

Did a test EnergyXT2 and Savihost and it passes both. Issue is probably the platform toolset used to build the plugin (there's a separate one for XP) but I'll have no way to test it locally. I can pm you with a separate XP version if you're interested.
