Legends Never Sounded So Good

Reverberate 3 is for the impulse responses aficionados. If you have captures of legendary studio hardware or even the overlooked gems, Reverberate 3 is for you. Reverberate 3 takes the impulse captures of iconic hardware reverbs and makes them sound better than ever before.

Loaded with effects and modulation options ranging from the subtle to the sublime, it is a powerhouse of creative potential that can take impulse responses to new highs. 

It features a wealth of editing and modulation tools that can refresh and enliven any third party stereo and true stereo impulse responses. Take your captures closer to their original hardware than ever before, or so far away that they become almost unrecognisable. 

A cornerstone of Reverberate’s ability lies in own proprietary modulated capture and playback technology format called Fusion-IR. It is an innovative approach to convolution capture and playback creating a lively, organic reverberation that is impossible to achieve with traditional static convolution.

Just imagine what the early reflections of one piece of classic hardware sounds like with tail of another. Or what an iconic stereo reverb would sound like in true stereo! All possible with Reverberate 3. Anybody who wants to breathe new life into their capture library or make something even more special with what they already have needs Reverberate 3.

Reverberate 3-shot

“Reverberate 3 is like the Tardis, you think it's a simple reverb plug-in, then you step inside! The possibilities are endless and very easy to control. The sheer amount of variation and control reminds me of traditional hardware reverbs of old.”

Andy BradfieldManic Street Preachers, Elbow

Reenergise Your Impulses

Reverberate has a wide selection of new and refined tools to reinvigorate your collection of static or Fusion-IR based reverb captures.

Deeper Fusion-IR Editing

Fusion-IR processing captures the evolving character of time-varying reverbs using multiple true-stereo reverb streams that are processed simultaneously into a reverb that mixes effortlessly with your music.

Fusion-IRs contain separately sampled early and late reverb components for unparalleled control in a convolution reverb, so you can balance the early and late components of a reverb independently, just as you can on a hardware device.

New in Reverberate 3 is the ability to independently adjust the late reverb pre-delay without disrupting the integrity of the sampled reflections. 

Many hardware reverbs only apply pre-delay to the reverb tail, which means the reflections are not unnaturally untethered from the dry sound as pre-delay is applied. Usually in a convolution reverb applying additional pre-delay would dramatically unglue the reflections, but in Reverberate 3 you can shift the late tails forwards and backwards in time independently. 

This also means you can even remove late reverb pre-delay without trimming off any associated reflections from the beginning of the reverb.

Reverberate 3 includes a new re-decaying feature so you can adjust reverb times from 0.25x – 1.75x of their original time without introducing stretch artefacts. Contouring above and below two user-controllable crossovers allows powerful control over low and high reverb times. Of course you can still then send these modified Fusion-IRs into the regular array of editing tools including crop, envelope and resampling stretch.

Reverberate 3 Product Shot - True Stereo Simulation

Enhanced True Stereo Simulation

Many third party impulse responses are simple, two channel captures – but for a fully enveloping sound true stereo is required.

A reverb with crossfeed creates reverberation from the left input signal to both left and right output channels, and vice versa. Typically the crossfed channels are delayed, and reduced in level, and may even be subject to some additional filtering.

Reverberate can simulate true stereo reverbs using stereo captures. This is an especially powerful technique when used with reverbs that were never designed with true stereo in mind, dramatically improving their spatialisation capabilities.

Now in Reverberate 3 you can modulate the simulated crossfeed channels bringing them to life in way you may have never thought possible without impacting the essential structure and onset characteristics of the sampled reverb.

The modulation technique used for true stereo simulation adds a dynamic sense of space and airiness to the reverb, but because the direct channels are not modulated it will not impair the true character of the original.

Extended Split Modulation

Often a reverb will feature modulated tails and static reflections, but many sampled impulse responses include early reflections and late reverberation in the same capture.

Reverberate allows you to divide a capture into two halves at a point of your choosing, load each into independent convolution engines, and then modulate each half separately creating a reverb brimming with new life and character.

You an even apply additional modulation to the early and late captures in a Fusion-IR.

Reverberate 3 features pitching and non-pitching delay and time modulation features so you can apply dramatic or natural modulations to any static impulse response.

The non-pitching mode is new in version 3, and these two modes can be selected independently irrespective of split point. A short burst of chorusing modulation in the first few tens of milliseconds followed by the more natural fixed-pitch modulation scheme throughout the tail can breathe new life into almost any sampled space.

This is especially powerful when used on reverbs that were never originally designed with modulation and even the tail of a physical capture, taking them on to new highs never envisaged before.

Reverberate 3 Product Shot - Split Modulation

“Fusion-IR and the Bricasti samples made Reverberate 2 one of the great bargains. It’s been in daily use for me ever since. Reverberate 3 is so much more that I could have hoped for. It’s a creative space machine.”

Simon FranglenAvatar, Titanic

Rejuvenate Your Rack

Reverberate dispels the notion that convolution only creates lifeless reverbs with a mix of innovative modulation technologies and quality effects.

Comprehensive Effects

The split modulation and true stereo simulation tools enrich the soul of a captured reverb, but additional spice comes from a comprehensive set of modulated equalisers, delays, ducker and chorus modules.

Dispersion modelling even allows you to simulate the essential whip-crack of real plate reverbs that was missing in almost all vintage digital plate algorithms.

A Refresh For The Next Decade Of Reverb

A lot has changed since Reverberate v1 was released over a decade ago. With this update we have reworked it with the future in mind.

Reverberate 3 features a brand new scalable interface with support for high resolution screens, enhanced metering, support for VST3 and the new FS-24x, FS-48 and FS-91 Fusion-IR packs.

The improvements aren’t just surface level, with all DSP rearchitected to support Apple Silicon (planned for release as a free update in 2021).

“Reverberate captures all the modulation and true stereo depth of many classic reverbs. It sounds brilliant and its deep feature set is a sound designer's dream.”

Damien LewisBeyoncé, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston
