A 21st Century Plate Reverb

Powered by Fusion-IR | Synthesis

Lustrous Plates Surround is a rich and luxurious contemporary plate reverb with ten distinctive models for use in surround and Atmos mixes up to 7.1.6.

Designed with the multi-channel music mixer in mind, Lustrous Plates Surround is the only plate reverb of its kind.

Nowhere else can you find a fully decorrelated multi-channel plate reverberation algorithm meeting the demands of the contemporary surround and Atmos music mixer.

The reverb excels at phase artefact free fold-down, essential when mixing or remixing for home and headphones-focused Atmos delivery formats. It is ideal whether you are bringing classic tracks featuring plate reverbs into Atmos or working on original surround pieces calling for the distinctive sound of plate reverberation.

The surround edition has all the features of the stereo edition including the even diffusion and beautiful spectral decay of ten real hardware plates, whilst bringing many new enhancements and new features specifically to meet the needs of today’s rapid surround production workflows.

“Lustrous Plates Surround has become an absolute go-to. Unreal depth, space and support for the source. It's outrageous and the interface is very conducive to a fast workflow.”

Emre RamazanogluNoel Gallagher, Paloma Faith, Kylie Minogue

Ten Rich and Beautiful Plates

Modelled on ten unique plates including a very rare gold foil unit, extensive measurements were taken from each giving a realistic and distinctive reverberant tone to each.

  • Chrome: A rich, full bodied plate with a classic plate multi-band decay profile
  • Silver: A light, airy plate with de-emphasised low-mids for enhanced clarity
  • Steel: Similar in nature to the chrome plate with a reduced low band decay time
  • Rhodium: Bright and rich, with a very neutral decay profile
  • Beryllium: A very reflective, lustrous metal inspiring a plate with a bright tone
  • Corbomite: A very dense and heavy plate
  • Iridium: Very dense, with a highly emphasised low decay profile
  • Osmium: A rich reverb capable of very clean, short ambiences
  • Platinum: Very dense and bright, with rich lows on longer decays
  • Gold: Simulation of the rare ‘gold foil’ 240 compact plate reverberator

Lustrous Plates Surround Crossfeed

Crossfeed Control

Lustrous Plates Surround provides a level of independent control over the direct and crossfeed signals crucial to achieving great results with surround reverbs.

Bloom, Level and Decay

A plate typically has an immediate onset, but the surround edition provides bloom and delay controls to allow the reverb to spread gently across the surround field. Level and delay allow you to control when and how much of a signal propagates into adjacent surround channels.

Equalisation

Plate reverbs typically have a very robust low end, especially when the decay times are towards the upper end of the range. High and low cut filters with selectable roll-off curves can be used (6, 12, 18 and 24 dB) to allow you to dial in as much low end weight and high end sizzle that your surround mix needs.

“This surround plate absolutely rocks my surround world!”

Andy BradfieldSnowden, The Great Gatsby, Kick-Ass

Creative Potential

Lustrous Plates Surround builds on the solid foundations of the original stereo edition, enhancing and extending its capabilities in many areas.

Rhythmic Reverberation 

The pre-delay and surround channel delays of the reverb can be set in milliseconds, or click the metronome button to set it relative to the current project tempo to sync the reverb to the beat of the song.

Dispersion

In a real plate frequency dispersion is critical to its sound and occurs due to the choice of materials, tension, mounting factors and more. The amount of simulated dispersion for each plate in Lustrous Plates is all controllable via a single ‘frequency dispersion’ parameter for quick and powerful results. When combined with the new bloom controls interesting time and frequency delay effects are a cinch.

Stereo Pan And Delay

The delay and level tabs provide the ability to apply a traditional level-based pan as many plates often do not have a rock-solid central image. You can also create interesting pan-delay effects by delaying the left/right channels which can range from a subtle haas effect to dramatic stereo slap delays.

Enhanced Modulation

The new surround algorithm extends the modulation capabilities of its Fusion-IR stereo forbearer for an even more natural, organic plate reverberation with greater stereo imaging stability and reduced CPU consumption (available for use in stereo as well as surround).
