Manufacturer's Description from Audio Ease

Visit the Audio Ease website for a full product description: https://www.audioease.com/altiverb/

Altiverb 8 XL is the industry standard convolution reverb plug-in. It uses top quality samples of real spaces to create reverb, ranging from Wembley, and Sydney Opera House to the cockpit of a Jumbo Jet. Altiverb 8 is efficient on the cpu, offers many parameters to tweak reverb, is total recall automatable, and has 64 bit support. Every month Altiverb 8 users receive new impulse responses for free.

Longer than anyone in the industry, and with more ear for detail, Audio Ease has been traveling the world to record the acoustics of the very best sounding spaces. The results of hundreds of these travels are included with Altiverb 8. From London's Wembley stadium to the ancient caves of the island of Malta, and the churches, concert halls and rock studios of the cities of Paris, Amsterdam, Berlin and New York.

The Impulse Response library is now more accessible then ever because of Altiverb's new visual browser. Select impulse responses by clicking photos of rooms. Instant gapless loading, organise-by-size, and single click favorites are just a few of its features. The Impulse Response Browser contains a keyword search field, single click downloading and installing of new (free) impulse responses.

Altiverb's concert halls and recording studio spaces are geared towards music production, but also its plate reverbs and digital reverb gear. But there is more for music: algorithmic brightness, modulation, stage positioning, and tempo locked gated and reverse reverbs. And you can make fantastic textures by using any sound as an impulse response.

Features geared towards audio for picture are: total recall (automation without snapshots), drag and drop impulse response making, making of impulse responses using portable radio or even slates (clapperboards), Altiverb's extensive channel setup flexibility and the keyword-search feature (just type 'bed room' or 'SUV').

About Manufacturer

About Audio Ease

"We are a group of music- and audio software developers based in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Audio Ease is best known for Altiverb, the first and highest regarded convolution reverb plug-in. Convolution reverb creates reverb based on samples of the real world: Sydney Opera House, the Gol Gumbaz of India, or the company bathroom. When we are not tweaking a filter or fixing the backup server, we are likely out there sampling an underground tube station or an antique telephone in our anechoic chamber."
