FabFilter unveils Pro-R reverb plugin

FabFilter has unveiled the FabFilter Pro-R, a high-end algorithmic reverb plugin with musical controls and what the company describes as a very natural sound.

The plugin features Space Control which enables it to seamlessly switch between dozens of room models with automatic decay time adjustment, as well as an industry-first Decay Rate EQ concept that introduces free adjustment of the decay time over the frequency spectrum.

FabFilter Pro-R also features built-in Post EQ and a range of high-quality factory presets, while its algorithms have been designed to blend well with the source and fit easily into a mix.

FabFilter Pro-R takes a musical approach to reverb, offering user-friendly, non-technical controls like brightness, character, distance, and stereo width to tweak the reverb sound.

Additionally, the plugin’s Decay Rate EQ with low/high shelf, bell and notch filters offers free adjustment of the decay time over the frequency spectrum. Since it uses parametric EQ bands instead of a traditional crossover system, it provides much more flexibility to shape the decay time characteristics. Together with the integrated six-band Post EQ, designing reverbs of any character ‘has never been easier,’ according to the company.

FabFilter Pro-R is now available for $199 or £149, supporting both Windows and Mac OS X in VST and VST 3, Audio Units, AAX, RTAS, and AudioSuite plugin formats. It also supports common Pro Tools hardware control surfaces.
