Babyaud.io have today release Crystalline - an algorithmic studio reverb plug-in as they say : "for the current era".
Its available in all the regular formats, with an introductory price of $49 (usually $99)
Algorithmic reverbs are made from algorithms, rather than Impulse Responses and Baby Audio say of Crystaline:
Crystalline stands on the shoulders of 60 years of chasing 'the holy grail of DSP'. We've asked ourselves what the pioneers of the legendary digital reverbs would have done if they had the resources we have today – and then we've made exactly that plugin. With all the bells and whistles a modern engineer would need.
Bold claims, but Baby Audio have a history of leveraging current AI and machine learning. Cyrstalline features:
BPM-Synced Start And End Times:
Hard-sync the reverb attack and decay time to your DAW's tempo. This will
generally result in cleaner mixes where the reflections are naturally in sync with the music.
Size lets you set the room size. This control is detached from the "Length"
control, meaning you can get any size/length combination you want, including esoteric settings
like huge spaces with very short tails or tiny spaces with very long tails.
Sparkle emphasizes high frequencies inside the reverb algorithm.
Width l set the stereo image of the reverb from mono to wide, to extra wide.
Resolution the complexity of the algorithm from 'basic' to 'pristine'. More complex
settings will give you an ultra-clean reverb response.
Modullation creates pitch variations inside the reverb algorithm.
Shimmer makes the high frequencies of the reverb tail decay slower than the rest of the
spectrum, giving the reflections an 'angelic halo' effect.
Damping - dual filter control
Sides - high-pass filter that removes stereo information from the low end while keeping the mono-information intact.
Gate The gate offers threshold and release controls
Tone is a tilt EQ
Smoothing - applies an EQ-curve custom-designed to address the frequency areas
that tend to get resonant and sharp. It mellows out harshness and gives Crystalline a more
subtle feel. This allows you to add a little more reverb without drenching your mix.
Transients shift the reverb algorithm's emphasis to either the attack or sustain part of
the incoming signal.
Ducker lowers the reverb signal when the dry/incoming track is playing.
Reverse reverses the reverb playback, giving you some radical sound design possibilities.
Freeze when clicked holds this snapshot continuously until the button is un-clicked again.
