EAReverb 2 is a 100% algorithmic reverb plug-in (32/64-bit VST2, VST3, AU, AAX). It features the “Natural” core engine of the original EAReverb but also brings a plethora of new algorithms and functionalities accessible from a totally revised user interface. Compared to the former EAReverb which focuses on simulating natural environments, EAReverb 2 can then be considered as a more holistic answer to your reverb needs.
SIX DIFFERENT ALGORITHMS: Natural (XXS>XTREM):
Formerly conceived for the original EAReverb, this algorithm provides smooth and natural results by avoiding metallic artefacts and by offering an adjustable level of subtle randomness in the late reverb.
Compared to “Natural”, using Bright is like adding carbon dioxide to source water.
Just consider high frequencies as bubbles and you will get the idea of what can be obtained from this algorithm.
This one provides a tamed and metallic sounding reverb as what you might expect from a spacecraft or an empty metal tank.
Auditorium is the most extended version of the original EAReverb core algorithm. It offers a wide range of possibilities from natural to artificial results. It features “bright” and (perceived) “distance” parameters.
A mono to stereo algorithm featuring bright and modulated characteristics of some classic high quality reverb units.
A synchronisable reverse algorithm that provides the “whoosh” effect some are in quest of.
What New 2.1.0:
“1>2 Plate” dual decay
It is now possible to set the decay time independently, for each of the two frequency ranges that are defined by a crossover value.
Revised pre-delay knob behavior
EAReverb 2 computes the late reverb’s build-up time (depending on the algorithm, …) and internally considers this time as a minimum (unchangeable) pre-delay. This helps to get more consistent results when synchronizing the late reverb to tempo.
The pre-delay value, that is displayed on the interface, now has this (build up time) value as its minimum accessible value.
The pre-delay knob curve is not linear anymore. It should make it easier to fine tune, when a short time is needed.
– Automation: better handling of the “position point” related parameters in the context of some specific DAWs.
– Fixes a rare bug that could make the host crash when removing the plug-in while its GUI is opened.
