Clean sounding algorithmic reverb
"Mutant Reverb" is a mono-to-stereo reverb plugin with a built-in ducker that is ideal for voices, percussion, synthesizers, and many other applications where careful control of reverb tails is required. Reverberation provides sounds warmth, character, and a sense of place in the real world. However, there are significant issues when a reverb tail obscures the sharpness of the original signal, producing a murky and muddled sound. The answer is Mutant Reverb; with just a few clicks and no intricate side-chain or compression routing, you can duck the reverb processing out of the way of the original audio. Simple plug-and-play.
A mono source can be converted into a stereo reverb signal using Mutant Reverb's Stereo Split processing and lush reverb algorithm. W.A. has also added a number of controls to adjust the reverb effect's room and tail characteristics. You can generate space in your mix using the standard threshold, ratio, attack, hold, and release settings found in the Internal Ducker section. You may also utilize the plugin on an effect bus or mute the original signal to hear the ducking reverb effect in all of its fine detail. It is simple to recognize reverb and ducking because to the visual feedback portion at the top of the interface, which displays how the dry and wet signals are interacting in two separate colors.
Clean sounding algorithmic reverb
Built-in internal ducker with compressor-style controls
Many presets for a wide range of reverb parameters
Click free bypass control
Time, Size and Frequency filter dials
Advanced controls for Pre-Delay, Diffusion & Dampening
Real-time waveform display
The Mutant Reverb logo acts as a bypass control for the whole plugin, and is smoothed to be click and pop free for unhindered A/B testing.
The waveform graph at the very top of the interface shows the dry source and the wet reverb signal in different colours. You can clearly see the reverb tales and the ducking taking place.
Use the Mix dial to set the wet reverb level. Used in conjunction with the Threshold and Ratio dials within the Internal Ducker section, this parameter can give precise control over the performance of the reverb tail. If you want to listen to the ducked reverb effect in solo mode (or use the plugin as an effects send) just activate the mute button to mute the source signal.
Time & Pre-Delay
With the Time dial you can set the length of the reverb tail up to an infinitive amount for endless ambience. Adjust the reverb's pre-delay time with the addition dot control, up to 100ms.
Size & Diffusion
Set the simulated room size of the reverb with the Size dial and adjust the reverb's diffusion with the additional dot control, smoothing the sound of the simulated room.
Frequency shaping & Dampening
A common reverb technique; shaping the frequency of the reverb tail reduces high and low end clutter. Mutant Reverb’s High & Low pass filter nodes can be used to filter the output of the ambience to high and low limits of your choosing. The dot control attached to the filter allows adjustment of the dampening, simulating a more natural sounding space.
Internal Ducker Section
The ducking section of the interface works similarly to a standard compressor and the Threshold and Ratio dials are the main controls for shaping how the ducked signal is processed. Threshold sets the intensity level at which the compressor starts working and the Ratio dial dictates how much gain reduction is applied.
Advanced Controls: Attack / Hold / Release
You can fine tune the behaviour of the ducking effect with the Attack, Hold and Release dials. Attack allows you to ignore transients in the original signal. Hold stabilises the generated gain reduction. Release sets the fade out time for the gain reduction. Adjusting these parameters is the key to shaping your bespoke reverb effect.
Including a wide range of factory presets, Mutant Reverb is designed to get you up and running quickly. The specially tailored settings include many types of ambience, from plate and room emulations right through to special FX. These are all easily accessible from the plugin menu and of course, you can save you own settings as user presets too.
This all-in-one frequency shaped ducked reverb gives you precise control over the reverb tails of vocals, percussion, synths and so much more. Mutant Reverb perfectly controls the feeling of ambience and space, without complex routing and side-chaining, maintaining the clarity of the original signal. Tame those tails!
