7Soundware - DelVerb 1.0

DelVerb is a new take on max4live Reverb, it takes a similar approach to a Schroeder All-Pass series Reverb, but it’s built around Delays!

It’s a really deep sounding reverb, it can be more roomish or have a really deep long reverberated ambience sound, added to that you have EQ on reverberated ambience beside independent Wet and Dry gain control.

The reverb consists of one longer delay line fed into 5 delay lines which act a bit like a phase filter. The size number modifies in a fixed ratio those 5 delays in series and this produces the reverberated sound.

The controls on the reverb side are pretty simple, you have Wet and Dry gain control and a size knob to determine the decay of the ambience. There also an EQ section to get the most from this type of reverb.

The EQ section consists of 3 bands individually tweakable, we have a low-shelf, a peak-notch and a high-shelf.

Each band has its own frequency control (in hertz) and a gain control, A low-shelf filter passes all frequencies, but increases or reduces frequencies below the shelf frequency by specified a amount (frequency and gain).

Similar to that, the High-shelf filter does the same but with the frequency above the control.

In the middle we have a peak Notch filter, this type of filter helps you to boost the middle part or cut it to make the un-reverberated sound more clear, in the way we’ve implemented it you can even search for a specified resonance by cranking the gain and using a real tiny band frequency and then eliminate those resonances.

This gives you total control on the Reverberated sound.

In the Center of the device you have the sonogram of the reverberated signal, this helps you to see which frequencies are more presents and loud, looking at that window we can see that the Reverb decay is exponential till reaching highest value on the size knobs where the reverb became a flat dense sound without exponential decay.
