Waves Audio has introduced the H-Reverb, a new plug-in based on algorithmic FIR (Finite Impulse Response) reverberation technology.
H-Reverb incorporates Waves’ advanced analog modeling along with a drive control, offering signal behavior found in high-end hardware reverb devices. The design also enables input drive, a technique favored by many top engineers.
In addition, the FIR engine lets users shape and customize the reverb decay envelope in ways beyond the linear standard, resulting in perfectly gated, real reverse, and very long and dense reverb tails.
H-Reverb also includes a library of artist presets from several leading mix engineers, and these can serve as what users are specifically seeking or as a great point to start from.
Mick Olesh, Waves EVP of Sales & Marketing, states, “Waves is extremely excited about releasing the H-Reverb. We went to great lengths to make this the most comprehensive and best-sounding reverb plug-in possible, incorporating invaluable input from industry-leading mixing engineers.”
