Description

Verberate from ACON Digital is an algorithmic reverb plug-in that simulates real acoustical surroundings with exceptional realism. Verberate 2 introduces the Vivid Hall algorithm that adds time variance to avoid stiffness that plagues convolution based reverbs while preserving the natural high density reverb tails of the original Verberate. Real acoustical surroundings will have slight variations due to air currents, moving performers or movements in the audience. While these variations may seem subtle, the effect towards the end of the reverb tail is significant, since the sound is reflected a large number of times before the reverb tail fades out. The new Vivid Hall algorithm models these random variations without artifacts like chorus effects or pitch changes, and is therefore capable of simulating reverberation of real halls with a higher degree of realism.

Another feature is the ability to better simulate mechanical plate reverbs. High frequencies travel faster in metal plates than low frequencies, and this effect is called frequency dispersion. Verberate 2 has a Dispersion parameter which allows for highly realistic plate reverb simulations when combined with the decay editor to simulate the longer high frequency decay of plate reverbs. A Swirl parameter makes it possible to simulate the feedback modulation effect found in many vintage digital reverb units. The 15 early reflection patterns offered are algorithmic, calculated in real time and applied using convolution. A dense and resonance free late reverb tail follows the early reflections, resulting in extremely convincing room simulations with impressive depth combined with the flexibility algorithmic reverbs are known for.
