Eventide Tverb provides an extremely customizable algorithmic room reverb with some unique techniques and features that can be adjusted in real time for complete ambience control.
About The Eventide Tverb
Developed with legendary producer, musician, and engineer Tony Visconti, Tverb is a powerful and versatile room reverb with some unique techniques and features. Using a virtual room, modeled on the legendary Meistersaal at Berlin’s Hansa Tonstudios, you can mix three virtual channels: one main mic with subtle ambience and two moveable mics capturing the lush room reverb.
How Does The Eventide Tverb Work?
Tverb is a reverb unlike any other. Start with a perfect room and configure it to taste by adjusting the standard reverb controls of decay, diffusion, and EQ to create the ambience that brings your tracks to life. Now, place a couple of additional microphones anywhere in that room. Move them around until the track sits perfectly in your mix. Set the mics’ gates to open with the dynamics of the track. Tverb, gives you control all of these parameters and more. And because Tverb is algorithmic, you can do it all in real time (which wouldn’t be possible with a convolution reverb). You can even have your mics dance around the room in real-time. Impossible in real life; a snap in Tverb.
Tverb’s Meistersaal room simulation is full of character, and being able to sculpt its intrinsic nature in specific ways greatly expands this plug-in’s usefulness.
While this reverb plug-in only simulates one room, it does a great job and is surprisingly versatile when compared to similarly priced IR convolution reverbs available on the market today.
Why The Eventide Tverb Is Such A Big Deal...
- 2 Moveable microphones to adjust depth of field and room reflections
- Adjustable polar patterns for microphone 1 to adjust the amount of ambient room tone
- Eventide’s complex reverb algorithm with EQ, diffusion, and decay control
- Compressor module on microphone 1, just as Visconti had in the original session
- 2 linkable, post-reverb gate modules with control of when the gates close, the speed at which they close, and the length of time they are forced to stay open
- Console (inspired by the one used in the session, including Visconti’s ‘grease pencil’ labeling) that provides post-reverb channel processing for each individual mic and the master
- Room mixer module alters the sound of the room itself with control over decay, diffusion, and frequency response
- Light weight! Low CPU loading allows you to put Tverb on multiple tracks
- Signal inversion buttons to remove (or create) phase cancellation
- Mix Lock allows for scrolling through presets or settings while keeping the wet/dry mix constant
- Complete automation support
