Sound Magic Released Neo Reverb – Hybrid Convolution & Algorithm Reverb

Sound Magic released Neo Reverb — its most advanced hybrid convolution and Algorithm Reverb for Mac (AU 32-/64-bit, VST 32-/64-bit) and Windows (VST 32-/64-bit).

Neo Reverb is an advanced Hybrid Convolution and Algorithm Reverb which consolidates both advantages of Convolution Reverb and Algorithm Reverb. It is commonly considered that convolution reverb sounds best and realistic but has a static sound. While Algorithm Reverb sounds live and dynamic but lacks the realistic of the convolution reverb. Combining the benefits of both has remained a dream until Sound Magic presents Neo Reverb. By transforming the True Stereo IRs of specific spaces to Algorithms, Sound Magic is able to open a new door for digital reverb with the birth of Neo Reverb.

Sound Magic has invested years in finding what a good Reverb is. After analyzing numerous famous reverb units, including lexicon 480L and 960L, Bricasti M7 and TC system 6000. we concluded a good Reverb should have 3 critical characteristics, Clean, Clear, and Open sound. Clean means the reverb should color the original sound in the tiniest amount. Clear means the reverb could generate a rich and realistic reverb/space feeling. While open sound means the sound should not sound like in a box or a tiny space, it should have a big, open sound field. Neo Reverb features an open. big, dense, clean, and clear sound and provides the highest sound quality to musicians. And it is the first software reverb that dares to directly compare with famous expensive hardware reverbs (Lexicon 480L and TC System 6000).

Neo Reverb Features

  • All-Purposed Reverb contains 8 Algorithms for different spaces, including Hall, Concert Hall, Room, Plate, Chamber, Ambience, and Space
  • Innovative Hybrid Convolution and Algorithm Reverb Engine
  • Innovative Cascade True Stereo technology
  • Powerful modulation system
  • Over 40 in-depth controls on the Reverb
  • Over 130 algorithm IRs in 6 different categories

Bass Ray5 features a Music Man Stingray 5 Bass. The first bass designed by Ernie Ball Music Man, the Stingray 5 was unveiled in 1987 and has been an industry standard for extended range basses ever since. With its powerful punchy sound, the added flexibility of additional pickups and a comfortably contoured body the Stingray 5 satisfies even the most demanding of players. The Stingray 5 was the first bass to feature active electronics and advancements such as a 6-bolt neck joint, contoured body, superior neck truss-rod system, and rock-solid bridge. T

Deeply sampled over 21GB uncompressed contents, over 7,600 samples, with multi velocity layers and round robin samples, Bass Ray5 aims at precisely reproducing the versatile and modern bass sound. To achieve the best possible sound, it took our team several months to prepare the sample recording. We have recorded left and right channels with different amps so this gives users more flexibility in shaping their final sound.

Bass Ray5 covers pick and lead finger playing methods. What’s more, we also sampled as much as techniques available on this Bass, including Mute, Sustain, Slides, Bend, Falls, Hammer On and Pull Off.

Compared to the more common six strings guitar, the 7th string will add more in both bass and treble range. Also it will sound more solid and booming in bass and treble ends, this makes it very good use for modern metal, rock and other styles that require a “heavier” sound.

Electric Guitar S covers rhythm and lead guitar playing — which includes Sound Magic’s powerful and easy to use, chord strumming functionality. The strumming system automates divide chords into special groups and users can use keyswitch them or articulation to quickly select them on the fly. What’s more, we also sampled as many techniques available on this guitar, including Mute, Staccato, Sustain, Vibrato, Slides, Bend, Falls, Scrapes,Screams, Hammer On, Pull Off and noises.

We further expanded our technology to achieve more authentic sounds from sampling without sacrificing creative control. For perspective, this means starting with non-vibrato and then fading in vibrato sustain while changing depth and speed. Or, you can also change Slide or Bend speed in real time while setting different destination notes.

China Percussion is a complete collection of most Chinese percussion instruments, including BianZhong (Chinese Chime Bells), Chinese Gong, Chinese Drums, Cymbals, Qing and a percussion set for Beijing Opera.

Bianzhong is an ancient Chinese musical instrument consisting of a set of bronze bells, played melodically. China is the earliest country to manufacture and use musical chimes. They are also called Chime Bells. These sets of chime bells were used as polyphonic musical instruments and some of these bells have been dated at between 2,000 to 3,600 years old. They were hung in a wooden frame and struck with a mallet. Using a wooden hammer and a rod to beat the bronze bell can make different pitches. Along with the stone chimes called bianqing, they were an important instrument in China’s ritual and court music going back to ancient times.

In Chinese music, there are many different percussion instruments; we carefully recorded most of them, including Qing, Bo, Kuaiban, Bang, Muyu, Drums, Cymbals and Bells.

A gong is an East and Southeast Asian musical percussion instrument that takes the form of a flat, circular metal disc which is hit with a mallet.

Percussion also plays an important role in Beijing Opera so we carefully prepare a set of percussion for traditional Beijing Opera. We also recorded the real performance and made them into loops so it can be quickly used in musician’s project.
