If you have access to it in the user area you can download it now.

Smoother and deeper, new algorithms

Officially announced soon.
Early bird (6 A.M. here) does get software!
User area download fine here. Win32 and Win64 includes both dll. So download one zip would be fine?

Is this VST only now on Mac? I downloaded the zip and it has only VST inside.

Took me a while to figure out the user area btw, I didn't realize the "Download" text that appears after you choose os from drop down menu was a link. I was just wondering why nothing happens, tried a few different browsers. Might be a good idea to write instructions to click the Download link.

Yes, of course, instructions needed, both for installation (which were included in the email) and for download.

To get the AU: like for the previous version, download the Mac VST version and replace .vst with .component

The instructions for renaming were in the original email two years ago, that's right, didn't remember.

For the user area I have only recieved one email in december and it didn't have this info.

Are the highs and lows levers acting like shelves like they show below them? On all reverb algorithms? Either they are very subtle, or they are doing something else? On some algos I can hear/see more bottom end when I turn up the lows, but on some I don't. On highs maybe some roll off and very subtle shelving, can't be sure.

Modern 2 seems to be the "cleanest" and what I like the most after a quick test.

Oh, about instructions included in the old email I meant renaming Mac files to get AU. Now they need to be put on the website, of course.

The filters are in feedback paths. You can hear how the spectrum evolves if you set a very long reberb with extreme filter settings. Don't look for the sound of an input filter. They control how that range evolves, its duration.

M modes have more resources available, but V modes sound a lot deeper to me. They should be very useful on different sources.

Something interesting with these emulations is how they give the pitch modulation convolution just can't do.

Sorry for bringing this up again, but I wish you guys could share some info on the AAX/RTAS subject now.
I have bought several of your Plugs expecting AAX to come out, but still no go on that end ...

Please enlighten us


Thanks,
G

As you can easily imagine I was overladed. I'm working on PT versions now.
I'm the only one who puts his hands on sw here and I thought I was superman.
Now new products are waiting until PT versions are done, except announced updates, of course.

Thanks Quinto.

I believe there will be a rush of funds coming your way when the PT version is ready

I am only asking this out of curiosity, I truly am not trying to be rude...

Why do so many people ask about CPU hit for something like a reverb plugin (something that most people are not going to have a huge number of in any given session like you might with a console emu, eq, etc)? I know that not everyone can have the biggest and most powerful monster DAW, but even something "older' and "out-dated" like a standard quad-core or a robust dual core should not be a huge problem for a "serious hobbyist". And being a hobbyist is not a bad thing, some amazing music comes from people who do not make a living (or maybe any money at all) from their music creations. But I see more and more developers are starting to code for a more modern architecture, and it's a good thing because some of the cooler plugin tech happens to be more CPU intensive than a simple eq from 10 years ago.
So to address the question of CPU hit from the Rev250, I can say that with a basic Core2 Quad the hit is negligible. And from a new 4.4gHz i7, it's like there is no plugin even loaded.... Doe that help?

I think it's a fair question...

I my case it's a combination of factors: I tend to use fairly cpu intensive instruments when I'm doing soundtrack work. I overindulge in rev and delay buses. And I have some really bad mixing habits such as not bouncing those cpu-intensive tracks. I have commitment issues. Which is not great when doing a mix.

I completely agree with you in ref to coding for modern architecture. I love mixing in our current ITB climate... some companies are making brilliant plugins!

Cheers for the info, I appreciate the time... and it does help.

Fair enough then! I think that this plugin will be fine for your bad habits...lol

Well, transverb sounds more as an insert than a send, so I understand

Any feeling about the M modes? They use more resources and are more dense, the result sounds less deep but more glued to the source to me...

I do like the M modes a lot. They seem more natural and do glue better. V seems to be a deeper more dramatic sound. I do like a drier verb since I tend to overuse reverb (and have to watch that). Is the modulation on the 1 modes tremolo? Haven't dived into that as much, since the straight verb is so lovely. I'd be psyched to hear some tests and opinions from the "reverb mavens" out there! Been using it on harmonica and vocal, really works well with a room reverb to give a little extra space....

Everything is pitch and amplitude modulation. The classic way of hiding artefacts due to poor resources, fantastic as an effect on several sources.

Hi Quintosardo,

Sounds like you are really changing the software side of you company by introducing a user area. Very groovy.

I understand you have an awesome price point (thank you) and allow returns... any chance you will also be adding demo versions for trial? Or is the best thing to do is purchase and return if not happy?

Cheers.

Yes, this is really changing everything. And it is just the surface

The point with demos is, other than more work needed, tat we don't apply any kind of copy protection at all. Just watermark. So a demo version would be just a reduced version, which sounds bad. A full version with a refund policy lets me give assistance to a reasonable number of users...

Will be better, we'll see.

Priorities today are updates, new products, RTAS/AAX.

Hey how are people liking the updated reverb? Funny seems like with the site update much less SKnote chatter. I really like the updated version. The lighter mode is really useful. I always miss not having presets on Quinto's emulations. I like to use them for a quick dial in and then go from there. Anyone want to share? Anyway thought I'd bump this!

I think there needs to be a mode added without those extreme Early Reflections, compared to the ERS version(not saying it's the definitive emulation) the ER are wayy too much, is that really accurate like the real deal? I've read the earlier posts but nothing seems to have happened?

Yes, it was updated to the actual one, with four new modes.

If you have a simple audio example just post it here or send it to my email. Some result you don't like.

These effects are always improving and a sample is the best way of getting it going where you want

I'm thinking it may be a lack of a first reflection.

Here you go, check attachment I already posted about this on KVR a while back but you just said it was ER, I'm still not sure if it's right?

Not to mention the weird clicks introduced with REV250 and the frequency content away up at 20khz...

This plugin works for stuff but I do believe it could be better/more accurate(?) if solutions to these issues were corrected.. or are they proper EMT 250 behaviour?

I'm using the V2 that I bought in May.

Both settings are the same on the ERS and REV250(Standard Mode). Decay, Low Shelf and High Shelf at 0 and Predelay at 40ms, 50%mix on just some Groove Agent Bongos.

And a picture of the peak away up at 20khz with Rev250..

Great, is the dry file there?

I never compare plugins, though, I think it is wrong. I'll do some tests with the dry file.

Sure...

I can understand not comparing the plugins but it's all I've got to reference too, REV250 sounds better overall but that initially pre-delay/early reflections, whatever you want to call it, is killing it and some others seem to feel the same..

All I'm looking for is an as accurate as possible emulation of the EMT 250, if that is as accurate as can be expected then I'll shush() but it feels way off?

Not to mention that 20khz peak/clicking, does the real deal do that?

Cheers.

Usually the right sample says it all.
20KHz noise: not there by purpose, of course. I'll check soon, thanks for the sample!
