Reverberate 2 is a modulated true-stereo hybrid convolution reverb audio processor for Mac and PC. Using a unique mix of advanced signal processing technology it creates a unique rich and dynamic reverb with unrivalled sonic capabilities.
Reverberate 2 introduces Fusion-IR, an innovative approach to convolution reverb creating a lively, organic reverberation that is impossible to achieve with traditional static convolution.
Fusion-IR processing captures the evolving character of time-varying reverbs using multiple true-stereo reverb streams that are processed simultaneously. The inputs to the convolution streams are modulated and the outputs fused into a rich, captivating space that mixes effortlessly with your music.
Fusion-IRs contain separately sampled early and late reverb components for a level of mix control never before found in convolution reverbs or sample packs.
By using a modulated mix of two separately controllable true stereo or Fusion-IRs incredibly musical and convincing reverbs are possible far surpassing traditional convolution plugins.
Further modulation is possible using post-processing effects including an all-pass interpolator chorus, modulated delay, modulated EQ and separately controllable early / late reverb pitch modulators.
Dual True Stereo and Fusion-IR Reverb Processors
The dual reverb processor manipulation views (IR1 and IR2) provide the opportunity to run multiple reverbs at the same time using different impulse response modes (true-stereo, Fusion-IR and synthetic IR).
In addition to the revolutionary Fusion-IR modulation possibilities supplementary early and late pitch modulation parameters allow subtle pitch variations on both the early or late reverb components. These are dependent on a user definable split position for static impulse responses or are applied directly to the independently sampled head and tail in a Fusion-IR. Split early/late pitch modulation can provide a spin and wander modulation effect to the early and late components of a reverb.
Pre-convolution effects include dedicated time-varying equalisers to control how an EQ develops as a reverb tail progresses.
Post-convolution effects can be used to increase the motion within a reverb. Delay and chorus can be applied to IR1, IR2 and the master chains independently, and a modulated EQ runs on the master.
Flexible Mixing and Routing
The final mix page where panning, gain and mix modulation can be applied is shown along with the advanced sample browser which provides control over all loaded impulse responses.
Reverberate 2 is supplied with hundreds of presets and impulse responses.
Over 250 traditional static impulse responses are included covering a wide range of churches, halls, plates, rooms, spaces and special effects. Real environment captures are included from OpenAIR. Many of the presets include supplemental modulation effects.
The LiquidSonics Fusion-IR presets are provided free of charge as an additional download. These cover every preset from the Bricasti M7 (v1 and v2) and a collection of chambers, halls, plates and rooms from a wide range of other digital hardware reverbs.
Reverberate 2 has been well received in the UK press and in online reviews. Some highlights have been taken from various publications below.
`I already had a handful of very fine convolution reverbs installed on my DAW computer, and some of those were accompanied by superbly-produced IR collections that covered the breadth of types of natural spaces. I think there’s a very good chance I will never feel inclined to use any of them again, that’s how spectacular Reverberate 2 sounds to me.`
Sound On Sound UK
On Fusion-IR: `These sounds have a richness and complexity to them that I’ve not heard even in high-end plugins`. Reverberate 2 is described as `a hugely impressive convolution reverb which offers new levels of realism in recreating time-variant sources`. Reviewer Sam Inglis concludes with `I’ve no doubt that Reverberate 2 will be seeing a great deal of use in my mixes`.
Computer Music UK
`Reverberate 2 is flexible and easy to use, and includes some excellent presets`. On Fusion-IR, `It’s powerful stuff, and to show their new technology off LiquidSonics have created a set of Fusion-IRs that can be downloaded from their website for free, including some sampled from a Bricasti M7 hardware unit. They sound amazing, needless to say.` The review wraps up with `Reverberate 2 is one of the best convolution reverbs around, and a steal at this price`.
The plugin has a 9/10 rating and received the Performance and Value awards.
March 2016 Issue
In the review with accompanying audio samples Reverberate 2 receives a rating of 4/5 and the Innovation award. On Fusion-IR, `The diffuse field of Fusion-IR has a je ne sais quoi`; read the original French article.
Pro Tools Expert
Well done LiquidSonics for releasing a great update to an already great convolution reverb. This I believe is going to be a very popular reverb with both music and post-production guys as the depth of the control, ease of use, affordability and quality of the impulse responses will inspire you to embrace Reverberate 2 in many of your future projects.
November 2015 – Watch Video Review
Like many other people, I’ve just never been able to get a truly musical in-the-box (ITB) reverb going. I’m really looking forward to doing serious mixing with Reverberate 2 on upcoming projects. I think LiquidSonics may have finally broken the ITB reverb barrier.
