Our friends at Eventide has just told us that their Tverb plug-in has been nominated for a TEC Award for Outstanding Technical Achievement in the category of Signal Processing Software (Effects). This is not a surprise as it is one of the most exciting plug-ins released last year.
Developed with legendary producer, musician, and engineer Tony Visconti who used this effect on David Bowie’s music, Tverb provides an extremely customizable room reverb with some unique techniques and features. Within this virtual room (modeled on the legendary Meistersaal at Berlin’s Hansa Tonstudios) you can mix three virtual channels: one main mic with subtle ambience and two moveable mics capturing the lush room reverb.
Start with a perfect room and configure it to taste by adjusting the standard reverb controls of decay, diffusion and EQ to create the ambience that brings your tracks to life. Now, place a couple of additional microphones anywhere in that room. Move them around until the track sits perfectly in your mix. Set the mikes’ gates to open with the dynamics of the track. You can even have your mics dance around the room in real-time. Impossible in real life; a snap in Tverb.
