Altiverb

Post by mazz » Wed Oct 13, 2010 9:43 am

I use Altiverb for my orchestra music now as well as for tons of other stuff. It is really a fantastic addition to my sound arsenal. For 70s style stuff I end up using the Todd AO scoring stage because that's where a lot of famous TV show and movie scores were recorded (probably still are!). The concert halls are fantastic as well.

Highly recommended!!

When they finally release version 7 in 64 bit I'll be adding this to my bag of tricks.

Yeah, I drawl over that one.. but, unfortunately couldn't afford it, so I've been looking for alternative convolution engines in a lower price range, and then put my major investments in a nice IR library, instead. The library in Altiverb looks and sounds awesome!

So far I've gotten LiquidSonics Reverberate http://www.liquidsonics.com/home.htm , and the Briscati and Lexicon libraries from Samplicity http://www.samplicity.com/

I considered the Voxengo Pristine Space http://www.voxengo.com/product/pspace/ , as it has better surround capabilities, but decided against it as it's not compatible for 64bit. I've just ordered a Waves bundle with the IR1 L in it, and look forward to test that also. I considered to upgrade for Komplete 7 with Reflektor in it, but that has not True Stereo, even though it sounds pretty nice, and I don't need the others Komplete stuff, so I let some GAS go there :D

I A/B'd Reverberate with every reverb I had, including some TC Electronics stuff, and it definitely was a step up, so I'm happy for now, and look forward to have more options for reverbs. Love the fact that you can import your own IR's into Kontakt as well!

Here's a good introductionary overview of some IR producers: http://www.kvraudio.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=107337
