I think with AltiVerb that AudioEase just got better at the optimization of their code.
One stereo instance of AltiVerb barely registers on my CPU usage in N5.
Surround is a bit more, and a lot less in IR too.
REVerence can be a superb thing as long as it’s library gets developed & expanded.
It could do with a few more bells & whistles in usage too, as it looks primitive next to AltiVerb.
1 - 4-band (with 2-bands Parametric midrange) EQ on AV, 3 on REV. with no Q control at all.
2 - No damping/gains controls at all on REV, just ER/Tail split & ER/Tail mix. AltiVerb gives you low/mid/high damping (with adjustable crossovers) as well as separate gain & delay controls for ER & Tail.
Talking about REVerence’ EQ, when you activate it, the waveform in the viewer to the left reflects the EQ changes. Does anyone know why?
REVerence does have - bless it - separate control over front & rear on the 6 main parameters (for which I am truly grateful, and I mean that - not being facetious at all) as well as the ability to import multichannel IR, I believe (will check this but feel sure it can) which AltiVerb could not do last time I tried.
The best challenger to AltiVerb that I ever saw & used was the sublime WizooVerb.
Now that was a real contender. Makes me so mad when I think about what happened there… (is there an icon for “dribble” or “froth” or “rant” at all??)
