REFLEX+ V3 is the third generation of the delay algorithm based echo/reverb unit REFLEX+ ambience effect plugin.

It is capable of generating huge spaces as well as modulated echoes and reverb through a cascade of regenerating delays and thus is an ideal tool for big ambient atmospheres. Beside common and expanded mono/stereo and cross delays REFLEX+ provides everlasting reverb as well as special modulation effects which will enrich all kind of sources to an inimitable ambient sound cloud.


•Short reflections up to endless reverberation 
•Syncable delay times 
•2 independent effect slots (REFLEX lines) 
•4 syncable LFO with variable target and output settings 
•Time, Pan, Filter and Amp modulation 
•7 filter types 
•7 Delay/Reverb algorithms 
•Preset manager (ships with more than 150 factory presets)

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.

Post-convolution effects can be used to increase the motion within a reverb. Delay and chorus can be applied to IR1, IR2 and the master chains independently, and a modulated EQ runs on the master.

TAL-Sampler is not just a sample player. It's a full featured analog modeled synthesizer with a sampler engine as sound source, including a powerful modulation matrix and a high quality self-oscillating 24/12/6 dB low pass filter.

Don't expect a 40GB piano sample library with samples for every velocity or something similar. The idea is to bring back the fun sampling was in the good old times with small samples, fast loading times and an intuitive work-flow to create your own sample presets without getting lost in the settings.

It's possible to choose between different digital analog converters (DAC's) to get the vintage sound of different hardware samplers inside your DAW. We don't make cheap bit crushing or decimation on the output signal. We really down-sample the sample to the desired sampling frequency, then process the data depending on the chosen DAC and up-sample it to the desired pitch. Most DAC modes offer a LEVEL slider. This feature allows the user to reduce the volume of the recorded sample and decreases the sample quality. Load your favorite high quality sample and make it sound vintage and noisy. The 24dB low pass filter will like it!

Following diagram shows the signal flow if you choose the DAC Emu II mode:

The plug-in has four layers an can play four samples simultaneous. There is also a simple SFZ import for samples that imports the mapping and sample paths, but the plug-in also contains an easy to use mapping editor.

TAL-Sampler is available in the VST, Audio Unit and AAX plug-in format. You can load and play your own samples in every common sample format (*.wav, *.aiff, *.aif, *.mp3, *.ogg, *.flac). Import samples with drag & drop from finder or explorer. There is also an intuitive sample browser that helps to find samples fast.

Some nice additions like a vintage real-time time stretcher and the possibility to modulate or automate the sample loop positions.


Vintage DAC modes (Emu II, AM6070, Sample Hold).
Steep 96dB low-pass reconstruction filter (Emu II and AM6070 F).
Variable sample rate.
Powerful MOD-Matrix. 
Four sample layers.
Three AHDSR envelopes with vintage Digital / RC mode.
Three LFO's (Triangle, Saw, Rectangle, Random, Noise).
High Quality effects (Reverb, EQ, Delay).
Self resonating zero feedback delay filter (24/12/6 dB LP).
Wide range of audio formats supported (*.wav, *.aiff, *.aif, *.mp3, *.ogg, *.flac).
Scalable high resolution user interface.
The possibility to change font and background colour.
Fast sample and preset loading.
More than 100 presets available as download (on the right).

Tantra's modulatorThe core of Tantra is a set of 8 multi-mode modulators, which generate rhythmic 32-step multi-stage envelopes with adjustable shape and different operating modes.
Tantra's effects
6 high quality effects process audio in Tantra and in response to the applied modulations form rhythmic pulsations in your sounds. All popular effects included: analog filter, distortion and lo-fi sections, flexible delay and flanger. Special Glitch module brings the modern "Stutter" effect on the board.

All the effects are organized as two independent layers, which allows you to produce deep and complex audio rhythms, consist of two sub-patterns.

Master equalizer and reverb at the output will help you to shape your final sound and breathe air into it.
