reverb round-up

The state of plugin reverbs back in the late 90s and early 00s was a sorry one. Unrealistic, grainy echoes and metallic, ringing tails were the best our feeble Pentium CPUs could muster. Things are very different now, of course, with a whole vista of pristine-quality space simulations to explore. But where do we go from here? Once you’ve hit peak reverb, what’s left to conquer? These five new unconventional ’verbs may hold the answers… Rob Papen RP-Verb 2 We dubbed the original RP-Verb “a sound design powerhouse” in our review (9/10, cm 146). The headline addition for RP-Verb 2 (£119) is the Reverser section, for tempo-synced reverse reverb effects. New modulation sources include Envelope Follower, Envelope and LFO, routable in the also-new Mod Matrix. There are fresh Distortion algorithms, too. Unless…

This is a four-VCO monophonic synth that can also be used polyphonically. All the functionality of the original has made it to your touchscreen. You also get two multieffects units and eight virtual patches. The introductory price is £19.99/$19.99. www.korg.com In more 80s hardware-emulating news, Elliott Garage has released the EGDR606, an iOS version of Roland’s TR-606 drum machine. Though not as well known as the 909 or 808, this still has its fair share of fans, and Elliott’s version retains the original’s look and feel. You have parameter editing for each piece in…

“In analogue modelling, some parts need to be altered to sound good in the digital domain” Kuassa Arie Ardiansyah cm When you’re modelling an amp, do you observe the components and try to ‘recreate’ them individually, or is it more of a modelling/convolution process? AA “We model our guitar amp algorithms on electronic schemas, but we chop all the processing stages into blocks. This way, we can achieve the best sonic quality possible while keeping the CPU usage low – it’s always a balance between sound quality and processing power. “In analogue modelling, some parts need to be altered to sound good in the digital domain, so we put extra effort into the final tweaks. That’s why we prefer our modelling to be called ‘inspired by’ rather than ‘based on’ certain hardware. Many times, we’ve…
