Living Sky - New Dynamic Spatial Reverb

GPU Audio, MNTRA and Outer Echo have just announced Living Sky - a new dynamic spatial audio reverb with organic acoustic spaces and some serious convolution processing with up to 5th-order Ambisonics resolution. It'll offer up to 64 inputs/outputs, 3D performable interface and up to 15 simultaneous, dynamically-modulated reverb spaces - and hundreds of simultaneous convolution channels powered by your GPU. Here's the info in their words:

MNTRA, GPU Audio, and Outer Echo proudly announce their brand new partnership with 'Living Sky' - a stunning spatial reverb plugin set to redefine three-dimensional spatial audio production. The collaboration unites MNTRA's expertise in crafting immersive virtual instruments with GPU Audio's unique high-end audio processing capabilities, alongside Outer Echo's excellence in providing DSP solutions for unconventional spatial applications. 

Living Sky is a limitless universe of living acoustic spaces that expands the capacity to effect and transform sound into the realms of your imagination. Within it acoustic sources become transformable spatial sound instruments that allow creators to bring their visions to life. While some reverb plugins allow for simple motion within a space, Living Sky brings motion to the space itself - creating dynamic and expressive audio processing  that expands and transforms organically. 

Through this plugin, MNTRA, GPU Audio, and Outer Echo are bringing physically impossible reverberation effects to the future of music, games, and immersive experiences. The upcoming release allows for decoding in multiple formats, including Stereo, Binaural, 5.1, 7.1, 7.1.2, 7.1.4, 9.1.6, 22.2,  and Ambisonics among others - positioning it as a unique professional tool to create spatial mixes, compositions, and music for any medium. Living Sky will contain a wide variety of presets, options, and content collections, catering to any post-production and audio professional seeking ultra-high quality, authentic (or out-of-this-world) spaces with the ability for deep yet intuitive creative control. 

Living Sky is set to be a market leader among spatial reverb plug-ins, combining up to 5th-order Ambisonics processing with newly developed proprietary extended-range ultrasonic convolution technology. This groundbreaking blend delivers unprecedented channel counts and enables a level of spatialization that has never been possible before, unlocking new realms of creative expression.

This plug-in is the product of a fruitful partnership with GPU Audio, unlocking the potential of your Graphic Card to harness thousands of cores of audio, allowing processing far beyond what has been previously possible. Outer Echo develops innovative architectures for spatial audio signal processing at the highest quality level possible, while MNTRA Instruments forges next-generation audio tools that will change the way we interact with music, sonic spaces, and sound design for linear and interactive media. 

Tech Specs: 

  • High project sample rate support (up to 192 kHz)
  • Up to 64 inputs/outputs
  • Extended-range ultrasonic resolution
  • Three-dimensional performable interface 
  • Up to 5th-order Ambisonics resolution
  • Up to 15 simultaneous, dynamically-modulated reverb spaces
  • Hundreds of simultaneous convolution channels (powered by GPU)


Look out for announcements at the upcoming NAMM show in Anaheim, LA from the 24-28th January, 2024. Living Sky will be released later this year. More info from | |
