Reverberate 2 is a modulated true-stereo hybrid convolution reverb audio processor for Mac and PC. Using a unique mix of advanced signal processing technology it creates a unique rich and dynamic reverb with unrivaled sonic capabilities.

Introducing Fusion-IRs
Reverberate 2 introduces Fusion-IRs, an innovative approach to convolution reverb creating a lively, organic reverberation that is impossible to achieve with traditional static convolution.
Fusion-IR processing captures the evolving character of time-varying reverbs using multiple true-stereo reverb streams that are processed simultaneously. The inputs to the convolution streams are modulated and the outputs fused into a rich, captivating space that mixes effortlessly with your music.

Fusion-IRs contain separately sampled early and late reverb components for a level of mix control never before found in convolution reverbs or sample packs.

Creative Convolution
By using a modulated mix of two separately controllable true stereo or Fusion-IRs incredibly musical and convincing reverbs are possible far surpassing traditional convolution plugins.
Further modulation is possible using post-processing effects including an all-pass interpolator chorus, modulated delay, modulated EQ and separately controllable early / late reverb pitch modulators.

Feature Gallery
Dual True Stereo and Fusion-IR Reverb Processors
The dual reverb processor manipulation views (IR1 and IR2) are shown below using different impulse response modes (true-stereo, Fusion-IR and synthetic IR).

Comprehensive Effects
Pre-convolution effects include dedicated time-varying equalisers to control how an EQ develops as a reverb tail progresses. Split early/late pitch modulation can provide a spin and wander modulation effect to the early and late components of a reverb.

Wavelore Clavichord v1.0 KONTAKT-VON.G Wavelore Clavichord v1.0 KONTAKT-VON.G
Soft / VST Instruments 31-10-2015
The Wavelore Clavichord ($179.99) (Kontakt 4 and higher) is the world's first deeply sampled and programmed virtual clavichord. This rare and beautiful keyboard instrument was a favorite of renaissance and barouque composers, as well as a popular practice instrument for organists (it's extremely quiet!), though it fell into relative obscurity starting around the early nineteenth century. In the twentieth century, it's best known, perhaps, in the form of its electronic offspring, the Hohner Clavinet, which we all know to be one the funkyiest sounding instruments on record. See Stevie Wonder's "Superstition" for a well known example.

The clavichord is considered by some to be the most intimate of keyboard instruments, mostly due to the fact that the player's fingers are more directly in contact with the strings; The most unique aspect of its construction is that it allows the player to rock his or her finger on a key, producing a vibrato effect, or "bebung"...poly aftertouch well before its time!

The Wavelore Clavichord faithfully reproduces all the defining and unique capabilites of its acoustic namesake, while also adding certain capabilities. See below for full feature list.

Instrument Features:

6 velocity layers, with 8-way polyphonic (true) round robin programming for all notes and release samples, allowing convincing performance of any passage...trills are especially fun :)

Intimate malleable sound, close mic'ed samples and stereo impulse reponses for enhanced cabinet resonance.

Characteristic release samples, accurately reflecting tangent buzz - adjustable in volume with carefully programmed decay-matching (so release samples don't "pop").

Configurable Keynoise samples for all notes, including a wide array of control options for performance detection. Of course, you can also just shut 'em off!

A dozen temperaments suitable for modern and period music: Equal, Pythagorean, and a variety of meantone and circulating temperaments.

Optional octave/unison string coupling with fine de-tuning control over each string of each key. This feature also allows the use and adjustment of "tangent slope", or the tendency of either member of a string pair to sound later than the other, based on the angle or "slope" of the tangent's edge. Together these controls can greatly enrich the instrument's sound, or even be used to simulate an instrument in varying stages of disrepair!

Ability to apply vibrato to only the last note played using an assignable MIDI controller, and including optional randomization of vibrato width and speed for a more "human" effect than typical LFO-based vibratos. Also includes an optional multiscript that allows the use of polyphonic aftertouch for true "bebung" technique.

"Electric" or "Acoustic" mode: Apply a variety of cabinet or amp resonances, as well as optional, keyswitchable wah, distortion, compression, and reverb.

MIDI Learn mode for all assignable controls.

A feature-rich, dynamic performance view with nine pages of clearly organized and intuitive controls for tweaking the instrument to your taste and style.
Carefully chosen factory settings to allow unsurpassed out-of-the-box playability.

Modular Monosynth

Created in 1975, and both distinctive and sought-after to this day, the SYSTEM-100 broke new ground for monosynths. In addition to its ultra-fat oscillators and creamy filters, it had modular patching capabilities, vastly increasing the sound design options. Pairing a Model 101 Synthesizer with a Model 102 Expander gave you two VCOs and two LFOs to work with, as well as Sample and Hold, Ring Modulation and a Noise Generator that all worked seamlessly together. With the addition of its modular routing capabilities, the SYSTEM-100’s sonic palette was staggering - effortlessly turning out the fattest of bases, in-your-face sync leads, dense textures, and exotic soundscapes.

With the new SYSTEM-100 PLUG-OUT Synthesizer, the sound of this legendary instrument is perfectly reproduced and brought to life with Analog Circuit Behavior (ACB). ACB faithfully captures the sound and feel of our most revered classics, using original design specs, and a detailed, part-by-part analysis of each analog circuit. While the sound and behavior is reproduced with total accuracy, there are a number of modern additions that improve upon the original design.

The features of the original Model 101 Synthesizer and Model 102 Expander are combined into a single interface, allowing you to use both VCOs, both LFOs, S&H, Ring Mod and so on with no patching. Of course, the signal path can be altered and parameters modulated by connecting cables between the patch points. A new 14x15 Routing Matrix makes for super-quick patching with all connections still visually reflected as patch cables on the SYSTEM-100’s control panel. You can toggle patching on/off as well as quickly see the entire signal flow with convenient buttons right above the Routing Matrix.

Like other PLUG-OUTs there are dual ADSR envelopes (VCF and VCA) and the advanced pattern generation of the Scatter equipped Arpeggiator. Six arpeggio types with six step settings combine with variable Scatter type and depth to create a seemingly infinite selection of patterns. A lush phaser with modulation inputs joins the superb reverb and delay, creating an effects section perfectly suited for synth sounds.

While multiple instances of the SYSTEM-100 plug-in can be used in any VST or AU compatible DAW, the SYSTEM-100 PLUG-OUT Software Synthesizer offers seamless integration and unique capabilities for SYSTEM-1 and SYSTEM-1m owners, including knob-per-function hardware control, stand-alone portability, and semi-modular patching capabilities (1m only).

Connect a SYSTEM-1/1m to your computer and it becomes a dedicated controller, only lighting the appropriate knobs and sliders pertinent to the SYSTEM-100. Transfer sounds back and forth between the hardware and software and even use the SYSTEM-1/1m as a high-quality audio and MIDI interface. Or break free entirely and PLUG-OUT directly to the SYSTEM-1/1m, creating a stand-alone hardware SYSTEM-100 synthesizer with real physical controls that can go anywhere and doesn’t require a computer.

With the SYSTEM-1m, you can even use the physical audio and CV/Gate patch points on the hardware with any of the available PLUG-OUT synths. This means semi-modular versions of classic Roland synths are now possible. Pairing the SYSTEM-100 with the SYSTEM-1m gives you dedicated high-resolution controls and both virtual and physical routing and modulation capabilities. The results are simply mind-bending.
