Symphony Reverb Plug-in With 3D Option

Symphony Standard

Symphony Reverb Plug-in

Symphony may be the most powerful reverb ever offered.  It adds warmth and character to any mix, bringing it to new life. And it provides greater user control then ever before.  New dynamic capabilities allow your mixes to have even greater clarity.  And with the 3D option, you can move right into the new worlds of Atmos, DTS-X, Auro3D and other exiting formats.  Here are a few of the new features:

  • Expanded EQ, building on the popular R4 architecture.  Not only have we added bandpass and notch filters on the early reflections and tails, but we've also added an input EQ to help keep undesired elements out of the reverb.
  • Dense and powerful early reflection control -- twice as dense as R2Surround. There's a unique reflection pattern from every input to every output. You'll never worry about compatible fold-down.
  • As with all Exponential Audio reverbs  every single reverb channel is decorrelated. You don't have to worry about color changes when that mix comes down to stereo--or mono. This becomes more and more important as channel counts go up and mix time goes down.
  • Tail modulation comes in multiple forms, both subtle and obvious.  You can have the character of vintage reverbs (without the noise) and with channel counts hardware couldn't give you.
  • EQ modulation of the early reflections and tail.  Dedicated LFOs allow you to add anything from subtle color changes to dramatic sweeps.
  • Freeze.  Grab the tail and run it as long as you want.  Sustain a tone, a chord or a room tone.
  • Dynamic control with tail-suppression (expanded from NIMBUS).  Your mix will keep itself clear.
  • Warp, to add even more timbral and dynamic control. Warp incorporates a compander, an overdrive circuit and even word-size reduction. You can turn it on and off whenever you need it.
  • More stem options.  Not only can you have mono-in/surround out.  You can easily generate a surround reverb from LCR input.  Or a 7.0 output from 5.0 input.  There are even more options.
  • Optional tempo control of predelay and reverb delay.  Rhythmic score?  You'll be surprised how much pop you can add without needing a calculator by your side.
  • Presets--whether factory presets or your own user presets--work in all surround formats. If you've worked hard on a 5.0 preset, it's going to sound great in 7.1 or Atmos--without modification.

Symphony 3D

Symphony3D Reverb Plug-in

All of the basic formats, plus this

  • Atmos Bed
  • Extended Atmos (7.1.6)
  • Auro 9.1, 11.1, 13.1
  • NHK 22.2 (VST3 only)
  • Additional 3D formats

The 3D option gives you licenses for both basic and 3D versions of the plugins. Sessions and plugins are compatible so that work you've done with basic Symphony will restore perfectly when you install 3D.  And sessions you've done in 3D will restore if only basic Symphony is installed*.

*Of course the 3D capabilities won't be there in basic Symphony. You'll see a notice about this in the plugin GUI.

    Get to the next level

    If you know other Exponential Audio plugins, you'll already know the power of keywords, favorites, search and other ways to help you find the sound you need with a minimum of fuss. We know that every second we save lets you get more done.

    But above everything else is the sound. Symphony places your material into just the creative space you need. And it's especially good at warming up a track or a full mix.  Add fatness without clutter.

    You'll need to head to a theater or a Blu Ray to hear the full power of Symphony.  But Exponential Artist Bryce Jacobs has kindly provided a pair of tracks, mixed by friend Scott Smith.  Symphony and R2 combine for a great stereo experience.
