Exponential Audio, the company behind plug-ins such as NIMBUS, R4 and PhoenixVerb, announce two brand new next-dimension surround reverb plug-ins - Stratus and Symphony.
The new reverb plug-ins address both an opportunity and a challenge - the ability to be more creative than ever before with post sound offering new surround formats and also the ongoing debate about intelligibility. Stratus and Symphony address both of these things.
- Channel counts up to 7.1 in the basic version, with up to Atmos, 22.2 and other formats with the 3D option.
- Expanded EQ, building on the popular NIMBUS and R4 architectures. Symphony also allows the user to modulate EQ in real time, using a pair of built-in oscillators.
- Dense and powerful early reflection control with unique reflection patterns from every input to every output, resulting in compatible fold-downs.
- Every single reverb channel is decorrelated, meaning no colour changes when a mix is downmixed.
- Dynamic control with tail-suppression
- Warp, to add more timbral and dynamic control.
- More stem options - ability to generate 3D reverbs from multichannel inputs.
- Optional tempo control of pre-delay and reverb delay.
- Good CPU Efficiency
- Over 1500 presets.
- Quick zoom feature allows you to double the size of the GUI.
For those working in immersive audio, whether Atmos, Auro, DTS-X, Imax, NHK 22.2 (or something else), then both Stratus and Symphony offer a 3D option. This option gives the user licenses for the base versions and also the 3D version of the plug-ins.
- All features of the base version.
- Atmos Bed (7.0.2 or 7.1.2 ) in Pro Tools 12 and Nuendo 7.1/8
- Special extensions to extend the Atmos Bed to add 4 additional height channels (Pro Tools 12 only).
- Special extensions to extend other surround formats (5.1, 7.1, etc) to add 4 or 6 additional height channels (Pro Tools 11 or 12).
- Auro 3D (9.1, 11.1, 13.1) and NHK 22.2 in Nuendo
- Session compatibility with base version. Session created with the base version can upgrade and the old session will still work, allowing the user to add height channels to existing work
Note: Immersive audio is currently supported only in Pro Tools (AAX) and Nuendo 7.1/8 (VST3).
