Surround Reverb Up To 7.1.6 Atmos Bed

Simply Powerful Reverb

LiquidSonics has established an enviable reputation for making some of the best sounding reproductions of classic stereo hardware reverbs.

But when we were challenged by industry-leading composers, mixers and post-production engineers to create something special for those working in modern surround formats we knew we had to make a reverb from the ground up. They told us their needs:

  • Create a room reverb with best-in-class sound.
  • Provide innovative, creative tools for use in complex surround mixes.
  • Make it simple and intuitive enough for lightning-fast workflows.

We worked with some of the best in the business to make sure we got it just right – including Alan Meyerson, Marti Humphrey, Steve Genewick, Scott Michael Smith, and many more industry professionals to make sure we were ticking all the boxes.

Cinematic Rooms is a reverb dedicated to the intense acoustic demands of surround room simulation. Deep yet accessible; advanced surround workflow tools allow you to design intricate acoustic spaces of incredible purity with simplicity. Available in two editions, both support channel formats from stereo up to 7.1.6 for use with the latest Atmos bed workflows.

"LiquidSonics Cinematic Rooms is really a 'Next Level' surround reverb. There's so much density and depth! It’s also amazing in stereo on my record projects. Guaranteed part of my mix template now."

Alan MeyersonScore Mixer - Dunkirk, The Lion King, The Greatest Showman, Inception, Blade Runner 2049

"LiquidSonics Cinematic Rooms is the most musical reverb I’ve used.
Totally immersive, which is exactly how it should be. Makes life better!"

Hans ZimmerAward winning composer - Interstellar, Gladiator, Crimson Tide, Inception, Dunkirk, and The Dark Knight Trilogy

"A beautiful, flexible, expansive and deeply impressive reverb.
Below the surface of the gorgeous interface lurks a complex super power of an engine."

Stephen GallagherComposer/Music Editor - The Hobbit, District 9, King Kong

Cinematic Rooms Professional

For the most demanding score mixing and post-production workflows, the Professional edition is the ultimate room simulator combining the latest in modulated constant-density reverb technology with an interface tailored to the demands of modern surround production.

Surround Editing Planes

Cinematic Rooms Professional provides you with the controls you need to precisely define reverberation within the surround field. Optionally deviate parameters in the front, rear, side, centre or elevated planes relative to the master preset, for example:

  • Extend and filter the reverb tail in the sides and rears
  • Emphasise and widen reflections in the front and side channels
  • Apply a tempo-synced pre-delay and echo in the rears and elevations

As all surround plane deviations track the master controls any changes to the master preset immediately propagate throughout the space, and are clearly visible by the surround editing indicators beneath every parameter.

Superior Pan Tracking

Advanced control of crossfeed allows you to accentuate or suppress the amount and character of reverb propagation into the surround space.

Unlike other surround reverbs that typically create a homogeneous wash of equal magnitude in all channels, Cinematic Rooms’ crossfeed controls allow you glue the reverb to the source of the action whilst tracking panning very naturally with additional filtering, level and delay control.

Cinematic Rooms Professional

"I’m absolutely loving this reverb! It’s the first multichannel reverb I’ve come across that addresses my needs not only for film and TV score, but also my music-only Atmos projects. It went into my mix template right away."

Steve GenewickRecording Engineer - Aerosmith, Michael Buble, Bob Dylan, Green Day, Queen

"Cinematic Rooms has quickly become my go to reverb for film score mixing. The beauty of this verb matched with its ingenious interface makes it an instant classic. Absolutely brilliant!"

Scott Michael SmithScore Mixer - The Revenant, The Handmaid's Tale, It Chapter 2, The Invisible Man

"I am absolutely loving your Cinematic Rooms! I am using it on all my Atmos Home Theater Mixes and I have found the clarity and the reliability to be top notch. It just works and it sounds great! Very impressed with Cinematic Rooms the more I use it on Dialog and Music. The tails are stunning, the GUI is great and the flexibility is outstanding! It is a well thought out plug in that I am constantly reaching for to create unique sonic spaces within the mix. Thank you for the opportunity to be part of a plug in that will always be in used in my sound palette going forward!"

Cinematic Rooms Standard

Standard Edition

Refined, simplified, but never acoustically compromised – the standard edition is ideal for rapid workflows, lower budgets and simpler music mixing projects from stereo up to 7.1.6 bed.

With a wide selection of expertly designed presets and intuitive controls, Cinematic Rooms is designed to help you find a perfect space in no time at all.

Sharing the same reverb and reflection engines as the professional edition, Cinematic Rooms creates a convincing, pure ambience around your sources by simulating sophisticated early auditory cues for a wide range of realistic environments.

By pairing a unique achromatic reflection engine with a novel constant density surround reverberation algorithm, Cinematic Rooms excels in room simulation where other surround reverbs based on older technologies pushed beyond their natural limits begin to falter.

  • Unlike point-delay reflections, achromatic reflections can be placed in close proximity to one another without causing phasing artefacts
  • Our unique constant density reverb algorithm does not progressively divide resources between channels, so reverb tails retain their richness without compromise
