This feature results in amazing clarity in B2's filters. Well don't despair, we've done most of the work for you. I like 2cAudio B2 for epic, but hardly ever use it. As always, our aim is to provide you with a definitive and above all useful overview of your reverb plugin options in 2017, so that you can try out the ones that pique your interest and choose the very best and most appropriate tools for your productions. Aether employs an industry first, advanced frequency dependent decay time scaling process that allows users to specifically sculpt and carve custom reverb damping curves with unprecedented flexibility. Cheers Hey tuned in, thanks for the comments — yeah, there definitely is a shortage of good-sounding spring reverb plugins around. Other settings included in this section are a bit more basic and straight-forward.
Well to me it is. Whichever one I did select, they all were of very high-quality, not just some basic stomp-box, cookie-cutter sound. As a trio, these plugins complement each other perfectly, covering every ambience base. We did not get the memo. Reducing reverb width can be a great way to prevent the reverb dominating a busy mix, for instance. While not technically a convolution reverb, is an algorithmic reverb that is designed to recreate real acoustic conditions with a convolution-style of accuracy.
And in that sense, I would recommend anyone currently seeking out a reverb plugin, to take a look at Aether. B2's oversampling method is extremely high quality and does not add any artifacts or appreciable latency of its own, which we should note, is no easy task to achieve. As I am beginning to wrap my head around this incredibly deep plugin instrument? Oversampling B2 allows 1X, 2X, and 4X oversampling options. Aether has also got a wonderful and unique identity in a very swamped world of plug- in reverbs. Andrew is a very helpful guy too, not that that make the reverb sound any better.
When using traditional exponentially decaying reverb designs, producers and engineers often resort to raising the gain of the reverb to achieve this goal. I was not aware of 2c. In effort to maximize usability and user friendliness, this complexity is hidden from the user, and is instead wrapped into a single visual macro called Space Type. Furthermore it allows over 60,000 preset combinations when used together with the new preset expansions. For me, where Aether sets itself apart are the tail shaping and spacial controls.
The Cascade control becomes even more powerful when one considers the other new Aether 1. The aether browser in particular is dynamite. When the main screen is up, on the left side you can see various controls for switching between different views. Or just move the knob by feel like a normal human. My workaround was simple: Send tracks to a stereo aux track on which Aether was inserted, and set the plug-in's Mix control to 100-percent wet. In comparison to previous competitive products, our previous generation algorithms had very few artifacts.
I found the best way to really tell what was going with each setting was to just go through them one at a time, and listen to the changes the chosen setting makes overall. I checked out the demo, was in full agreement with the S. This allows centered mono instruments to stay dry while adding extra reverb or ambience to the supporting instrumentation, and is excellent for mastering needs!. I literally jumped back from my Monitors. Adjust the pre-delay, decay time, diffusion and envelope attack and sustain of the reverb tail. Having said that, we recognize that most users do not have a supercomputer in their basement and we are very well aware of the need to run the plugin on real-world systems of varying degrees of processing power. B2 allows two independent sets of its various quality settings: one for Realtime use, and one for Offline bounces.
And once you've got your head around all those controls, you can really go to town on sculpting the reverb. This is fine for mono sources, such as lead vocals that are panned dead center, but it is generally not desirable for stereo sources or for use on send busses where several panned instruments share the same reverb. Very fast and easy to pursue ideas. The Perfection and Obsession modes employ highly advanced mathematical techniques to achieve completely artifact-free band-limited interpolation, which is free from unwanted high-frequency damping, and perfectly suppresses aliasing at the same time. At the same time, we did not sacrifice any degree of control for the power user.
I look forward to learning even more about what is possible with this sublime piece of kit. The Taps display lets you see separate delays over time from left to right. They describe it as revolutionary and mind-blowing. For straight-up popular music, it's of little worth. Aether also offers an Attack control to shape the reverb tail's attack envelope to allow for slower build-up as is found in larger buildings. Great care has been taken to ensure accuracy in the preparation of this article but neither Sound On Sound Limited nor the publishers can be held responsible for its contents.
Then experiment away till you get it just how you like. I said that I try to build orchestras in my songs and so the reverb is extremely important. Come explore some of it's infinite possibilities with me in this quick introduction. I didn't hear any artifacts even on the long tails. Really lively and unobtrusive when you want it too.
I contribute much of that on the quality of Aether. I am simply blown away with all the new features, quality settings etc etc. It's the first time I got genuine shivers working with a plug-in on how it takes a raw sound and makes it shine and vibrate! This change thus represets a ten-fold increase in the Size range, is generally at least four or five times larger than the competition, and opens up a whole new universe of creative possibilities. These include the Balance between the two engines , Mix, and Gain. As mentioned above, there are free versions of these last two plugins, and.
