Waves Audio begins shipping H-Reverb plugin

Waves Audio has begun shipping the Waves H-Reverb plugin, new software based on algorithmic FIR (Finite Impulse Response) reverberation technology designed to deliver ‘richer, deeper reverb tails’.

The FIR engine that powers H-Reverb enables customisation of the reverb decay envelope beyond the standard linear forms, promising ‘perfectly gated, real reverse, and dense reverb tails that don’t muddy up the mix’. H-Reverb also incorporates Waves’ analogue modelling along with a drive control. This design also enables input drive.

H-Reverb includes a library of artist presets from the industry’s leading mixing engineers, including Toni Maserati, Brad Divens, Daniel Green, Dave Darlington, Dave Stagl, James Ebdon, Ken “Pooch” Van Druten, Kevin Madigan, Pete Keppler, Ross Hogarth and Yoad Nevo and more.

Impulse-variable resonant filtering is featured for creating unfamiliar and advanced reverb effects, in addition to an EQ and dynamics module for compression, ducking and de-essing. ADA analogue modelling and drive control allows input clipping, while the plugin also features full buildup timing and shaping, pre-delay BPM sync and support for full 5.1-channel surround setups.

Mick Olesh, Waves’ EVP of sales and marketing stated: “Waves is extremely excited about releasing the H-Reverb. We went to great lengths to make this the most comprehensive and best-sounding reverb plugin possible, incorporating invaluable input from industry-leading mixing engineers.”
