Zynaptiq ADAPTIVERB – Resynthesizing Reverb Plug-in
Sound On Sound Magazine
by Paul White
We’ve come to expect the unexpected from Zynaptiq, and their new reverb delivers just that!
In real life, reverberation is created when sound reflects and re-reflects from hard surfaces in the environment. The traditional approach to building a synthetic reverb approximates the way these reflections behave using recirculating filters; also popular are convolution reverbs, which use impulse responses recorded in an acoustic space to recreate that space in software. However, anybody who knows Zynaptiq will know that they never pitch up with anything even vaguely normal when it comes to plug-ins!
No surprise, then, that their Adaptiverb incorporates an entirely new method of reverb synthesis, where the main reverb engine is described as ‘reflectionless’.
