Eventide is continuing their Reverb Spring Savings Event and Tverb is on sale for only $97 between now and the 21st of May.
Tverb is a reverb unlike any other. 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.
Developed with legendary producer, musician, and engineer Tony Visconti, the TEC Award nominated Tverb provides an extremely customizable room reverb. Features 2 movable mics and a mixer module alters the sound of the room with control over decay, diffusion and frequency response.
Tverb, gives you control all of these parameters and more. And because Tverb is algorithmic, you can do it all in real time (which wouldn’t be possible with a convolution reverb). You can even have your mics dance around the room in real-time. Impossible in real life; a snap in Tverb.
2 Moveable microphones to adjust depth of field and room reflections
Adjustable polar patterns for microphone 1 to adjust the amount of ambient room tone
Eventide’s complex reverb algorithm with EQ, diffusion, and decay control
Compressor module on microphone 1, just as Visconti had in the original session
2 linkable, post-reverb gate modules with control of when the gates close, the speed at which they close, and the length of time they are forced to stay open
Console (inspired by the one used in the session, including Visconti’s ‘grease pencil’ labelling) that provides post-reverb channel processing for each individual mic and the master
Room mixer module alters the sound of the room itself with control over decay, diffusion, and frequency response
Light weight! Low CPU loading allows you to put Tverb on multiple tracks
Signal inversion buttons to remove (or create) phase cancellation
Mix Lock allows for scrolling through presets or settings while keeping the wet/dry mix constant
Complete automation support
Tverb is available for the promo price of $97 (list $249), at the DontCrack Store.

Sonnox is perhaps our oldest friend in the business. They have been around for a while. Today they are marking their 10th Anniversary with a 50% off Promo.
The Sonnox story started with the software engineers making plug-ins with the exact sound of the legendary EQs and Dynamics of their famous Sony Oxford digital mixing desk. The Desk itself was VERY expensive when it was first launched and it sounded magical. Everyone wanted that quality.
Well today until the 15th of June at midnight you can have the world class Sony Oxford sound for a tiny fraction of what it cost 10 years ago and at half the cost it was one week ago.
Here is what top engineer Kevin Killen who has amassed some impressive engineering credits along the way, from David Bowie’s swansong Blackstar and Lazarus cast album, to recording U2′s Unforgettable Fire in Slane Castle has to say about Sonnox plug-ins:
“It’s like your favorite guitar. You know it makes a beautiful sound, and that’s how I feel about Sonnox Plug-Ins – they’re tried and true.”
Sonnox are available for their 10th Anniversary Promo prices at the DontCrack Store.
Our good friends at Acousticsamples have released the B-5 Organ v2, a new product; improving on the precision of the initial model and adding an electrical simulation, more precise percussive curves, updted speaker simulation, redesigned key contact modeling, with effects like loudness robbing and the voltage stealing. And more!
The Hammond organs are very complex beasts, full of wires. Until now, the best renditions were synthesis, mainly because of how the organ works which is a set of 91 frequencies that are connected via contactors under each key and which volume is controlled by the drawbars.
Sample based libraries consist of stacking drawbar samples at the same time which works, but causes a big problem, sometimes you play the same frequency twice and because of phase cancellation, you never get the same sound twice when if you press the same keys.
Acousticsamples found a way to use the 91 frequencies synthesis approach, but using real samples, so to get the best of both worlds, the real recorded organ tone plus the real behavior and we keep access to the versatility of the drawbar controls and the tweakability of synthesis.
4 different iconic models
All of the tonewheel organs sound different, each of them has a particular voicing, a different vibrato, different percussion volumes and curves, tone generator sound and volume, click sound, harmonic leakage and many other aspects.
A 1968 B-3.
A 1960 C-3.
A 1969 C-3.
And, a 1965 A-100 with all of the particularities of each model.
Also included is Rotary Speaker Simulation, Tube Saturation, an Advanced Percussive System, Real Key Contact Modeling and lots more…!
