The Grand 3 comes with a convolution reverb based on the same technology used by REVerence, the VST3-based convolution reverb processor already featured in Cubase 5. It boasts realistic natural space simulation, emulating any acoustic environment — from the smallest live music venue to the most impressive cathedrals. This reverb includes a vast number of impulse responses that put the characteristic sound of some of the world's most distinctive settings immediately in one's hands — both in stereo and surround.
An algorithmic reverb is also included to increase the amount of reverbs. With more than 60 reverb presets, this leaves the artist with ample scope to spatially enhance the piano sound.
