Surround Room Reverb For Music & Post Mixing Up To 9.1.6 Atmos

Buy Now for $399

Simply Powerful Reverb

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 convincing rooms with incredible transparency up to 9.1.6 Atmos.

We consulted with industry-leading composers, mixers and post-production engineers to create something special for those working in modern surround formats, and designed 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.

Working with some of the best in the business including Alan Meyerson, Marti Humphrey, Steve Genewick and Scott Michael Smith helped us create a modern classic that is becoming the industry standard room reverb for music and post mixing professionals. 

"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

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 Pro Surround Plate Editing

"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

"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 GUI


Cinematic Rooms Professional includes a powerful dynamics section.

Ducking & Compression

Ducking a reverb is a powerful tool preventing a reverb overwhelming the dry signal whilst enhancing clarity and intelligibility. It helps to keep the reverb tucked away until there is space in the mix for it to fill the space between phrases.

By ducking only the reverb (not the reflections) one retains the spatialisation effect of the early room without compromising intelligibility from excessive reverb tail fighting with the dry.

Compression can be added to thicken a reverb making it sound even more dense in the initial phase as it will squash down any peaks and accentuate the speed of the reverb’s onset.


Gated reverbs are especially useful with drums or when you need to keep the reins on a reverb tail to avoid overwhelming a mix or for creative 80’s style effects.

Cinematic Rooms GUI

"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!"

Marti D. Humphrey CASPresident/Re-Recording Mixer - The Dub Stage

"Having seemingly every reverb plugin imaginable, including Seventh Heaven Pro, I was curious what roles Cinematic Rooms would now take over in my mixes. The strides made in plugin quality the last few years has been incredible, and I must say, Cinematic Rooms is the perfect example of those advances. Gone are those ragged decays and shallow sound stages of old. This feels like the next generation of professional tools and I dare say this is the first reverb plugin that could make me ditch all the others in my system. What’s it best at? EVERYTHING. Out of the box, the quality, soul, depth of field, colour, dimension, it’s all there. The best new tools make you seriously consider reopening past work because it would make it all that much better. Just don’t tell my clients!"

Robert L. SmithFounder of Defy Recordings

Standard Edition

Refined, simplified, but never acoustically compromised – the standard edition is ideal for rapid workflows and music mixing projects that need a world-class rooms algorithm without the advanced post and score mixing features of the professional edition.

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 and late auditory cues for a wide range of realistic rooms and environments.

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 from stereo up to 9.1.6 Atmos.
