Altiverb 6.3.7 is a convolution reverb plug-in that can be used in any DAW that supports AAX Native, VST, Audio Unit, MAS or RTAS formats. In this section, we will show you how to use Altiverb 6.3.7 in a simple example.
Step 1: Create a new project and add an audio track
The first step is to create a new project in your DAW and add an audio track that contains a dry sound source, such as a voice recording or a guitar riff. You can use any audio file that you have on your computer or record a new one using your microphone or instrument.
Step 2: Insert Altiverb as an effect on the audio track
The second step is to insert Altiverb as an effect on the audio track that you want to process with reverb. You can do this by dragging and dropping the Altiverb plug-in from your plug-in list to the effect slot of the audio track, or by using the menu or shortcut of your DAW.
Step 3: Choose an impulse response from the browser
The third step is to choose an impulse response from the Altiverb browser that matches the type of space that you want to simulate with reverb. The Altiverb browser is a visual interface that lets you browse through hundreds of impulse responses that are categorized by type, size, location and name. You can also use the keyword search field to find a specific impulse response quickly.
An impulse response is a sample of the acoustic characteristics of a real space, such as a concert hall, a church, a studio or a bathroom. By applying an impulse response to your dry sound source, you can make it sound like it was recorded in that space.
To choose an impulse response from the Altiverb browser, simply click on the photo of the space that you like. You will see a preview of the impulse response on the right side of the browser, and you will hear how it affects your audio track. You can also use the arrow keys to navigate through the impulse responses and press enter to select one.
Step 4: Adjust the reverb parameters
The fourth step is to adjust the reverb parameters to fine-tune the sound of the reverb according to your preferences and needs. The reverb parameters are located on the bottom part of the Altiverb interface, and they include:
Dry/Wet: This controls the balance between the dry (original) and wet (reverberated) signals. You can drag the slider or use the knob to adjust this parameter.
Reverb Time: This controls the duration of the reverb tail, which is how long it takes for the reverb to decay. You can drag the slider or use the knob to adjust this parameter.
Pre-Delay: This controls the delay between the dry and wet signals, which affects the sense of distance and depth of the reverb. You can drag the slider or use the knob to adjust this parameter.
Early Reflections: This controls the level of the early reflections, which are the first echoes that bounce off the walls of the space before forming the reverb tail. You can drag the slider or use the knob to adjust this parameter.
EQ: This controls the equalization of the reverb signal, which affects its tonal balance and brightness. You can use the graphic EQ or the parametric EQ to adjust this parameter.
Modulation: This controls the modulation of the reverb signal, which adds subtle variations and movement to make it sound more natural and less static. You can use the rate and depth knobs to adjust this parameter.
Reverse: This reverses the direction of the reverb signal, which creates a special effect that sounds like it is coming from behind you. You can use the button to toggle this parameter on and off.
You can experiment with different combinations of these parameters until you find a sound that suits your taste and project.
