Voxengo CRTIV Reverb 2 reverberation plugin released - Press Release
Dec 9, 2018: Voxengo is happy to release CRTIV Reverb version 2.0, a stereo reverberation effect plug-in for professional music production applications, available in AAX, AudioUnit, VST and VST3 plug-in formats (including native 64-bit support), for macOS (v10.7 and later), and Windows computers.
Version 2.0 update includes the following changes:
- Added "Ambience" parameter.
- Added damping strength parameter.
- Added self-modulation for improved depth perception and warmness.
- Increased overall reverb's density.
- Changed "Hi Gain" parameter's behavior so that it applies makeup gain.
- Reduced clicking during room size changes.
- Redesigned knobs and background texture.
- Added Retina support on macOS, and automatic high-resolution UI size adjustment on Windows.
We should note that now this plugin on macOS comes only in 64-bit form, on Windows it comes both as 32- and 64-bit plugin, and requires SSE4.2-capable processor (Core i-, Bulldozer- or Ryzen-based processor).
CRTIV Reverb is a stereo reverberation effect plug-in for professional music production applications. This reverb plug-in provides a wide palette of reverb spaces while requiring only a minimal effort to obtain useful results. The tails created by this reverb are very dense and produce a well-defined spatialization. Since the reverb uses a kind of “true stereo” algorithm the panned sounds receive a good stereo field placement. We believe CRTIV Reverb provides one of the lushest reverb tails available on the market.
The early reflections placement, pre-delay and levels are chosen automatically based on a pre-defined model that depends on the “Room Size” and “Ambience” parameters. CRTIV Reverb is technically based on Feedback Delay Network building blocks using the Hadamard matrix, and uses self-modulation techniques.
CRTIV Reverb is great on any sound sources: vocals, synths, drums, mixes. The only drawback is that this reverb is a relatively CPU-demanding effect (it takes 7.5% of a single core of i7-7700K processor, at 44100 sample rate), for comfortable use it requires a higher-end processor.
CRTIV Reverb features:
- Easy-to-use design
- “True stereo” processing
- Preset manager
- Undo/redo history
- A/B comparisons
- Contextual hint messages
- All sample rates support
- Zero processing latency
- Resizable user interface
