Voxengo is happy to release CRTIV Reverb version 2.0, a stereo reverberation effect plug-in for professional music production applications, available in AAX, AudioUnit, VST and VST3 plug-in formats (including native 64-bit support), for macOS (v10.7 and later), and Windows computers.

Voxengo CRTIV Reverb 2 400pxVersion 2.0 update includes the following changes:

  • Added "Ambience" parameter.
  • Added damping strength parameter.
  • Added self-modulation for improved depth perception and warmness.
  • Increased overall reverb's density.
  • Changed "Hi Gain" parameter's behavior so that it applies makeup gain.
  • Reduced clicking during room size changes.
  • Redesigned knobs and background texture.
  • Added Retina support on macOS, and automatic high-resolution UI size adjustment on Windows.

We should note that now this plugin on macOS comes only in 64-bit form, on Windows it comes both as 32- and 64-bit plugin, and requires SSE4.2-capable processor (Core i-, Bulldozer- or Ryzen-based processor).

CRTIV Reverb is a stereo reverberation effect plug-in for professional music production applications.  This reverb plug-in provides a wide palette of reverb spaces while requiring only a minimal effort to obtain useful results.  The tails created by this reverb are very dense and produce a well-defined spatialization.  Since the reverb uses a kind of “true stereo” algorithm the panned sounds receive a good stereo field placement.  We believe CRTIV Reverb provides one of the lushest reverb tails available on the market.

The early reflections placement, pre-delay and levels are chosen automatically based on a pre-defined model that depends on the “Room Size” and “Ambience” parameters.  CRTIV Reverb is technically based on Feedback Delay Network building blocks using the Hadamard matrix, and uses self-modulation techniques.

CRTIV Reverb is great on any sound sources: vocals, synths, drums, mixes.  The only drawback is that this reverb is a relatively CPU-demanding effect (it takes 7.5% of a single core of i7-7700K processor, at 44100 sample rate), for comfortable use it requires a higher-end processor.

CRTIV Reverb features:

  • Easy-to-use design
  • “True stereo” processing
  • Preset manager
  • Undo/redo history
  • A/B comparisons
  • Contextual hint messages
  • All sample rates support
  • Zero processing latency
  • Resizable user interface
  • Retina and HighDPI support

CRTIV Reverb is available for purchase for US$ 59.95.  It is a free upgrade for existing owners, and Premium Membership owners.  Demo version of CRTIV Reverb can be downloaded freely at the Voxengo web site: http://www.voxengo.com/product/crtivreverb/?eref=ml
