The next generation of convolution reverbs, made with music in mind.
REmatrix combines five individual IRs to create dense, complex and unique spaces. The reverb is then processed with an effects chain designed to add liveliness, create warmth, or even completely reshape decay and create a reverb character that cannot be obtained with any other tool.
Impulse Response [IR] reverbs are great when you need to replicate a sampled space; however the typical IR offers only simplistic adjustments and does not allow more creative changes to the nature of the generated ambience. What if you need that greater level of control? What if you want to more fundamentally change an underlying element originally captured inside the impulse response? REmatrix is the answer.
REmatrix features five convolvers working simultaneously and in parallel. You can build your own IR by summing five separate IRs, offering an all new level of customizability inside the reverb. Each of the five IRs can be adjusted using multiple parameters while additional filters offer further tonal control. Furthermore, REmatrix has six Master Effects to refine the reverb's sound and fit the needs of your final mix.
REmatrix combines the best of convolution reverbs along with unprecedented levels of flexibility.
Whether you use the high quality factory library or your own custom libraries, REmatrix lets you approach reverb with a brand new perspective and create both unique and unparalleled textures.

The fastest way to use REmatrix is by starting with the provided presets and customizing them by balancing the IRs to fit your needs through the five main faders. Create presets with REmatrix is easy and, through a new perspective, it brings you to a new level of control: for example, start with one of the HALL IRs. Make it more interesting by adding a narrower ROOM IR to improve the stability in the mono part, Then add a PLATE IR with a slightly enlarged stereophony to add a pleasant and musical wide-decay. By taking that same preset and adding an EARLY IR we can add greater incisiveness, as well as adding a SPECIAL IR can give an unprecedented three-dimensional character to the final reverb.
Once the desired balance of IRs has been reached you can inject additional life to the five static convolvers by using the modulation (MOD) control. Add more character through the DRIVE and compression (COMP) effects and replicate what happens during a mix session when the room mics get compressed.
The algorithmic reverb (REV), based on the well-known Overloud BREVERB 2 algorithms, is an indispensable tool to ensure the tails always remain natural and musical, even when using extreme settings. The reverb, then, should generally be used to integrate the convolvers tgoether.
The DELAY, like the REV, is applied to the sum of the IRs. They're the ideal tools to create an abundance of space and greatly expand the tonal possibilities and usability of REmatrix. REmatrix puts no limits on your creativity, and it is so intuitive to use it actually reduces the learning curve to zero.
Full control over each IR property
Each one of the five IRs can be fully customized using the Extended Controls. There are two fully Parametric Equalizers, EQ1 and EQ2. Then there is the PAN control for stereo positioning and the STEREO control to adjust overall width of the soundstage.
Next the LENGTH control adjusts the duration of the IR. (Note that the IRs of the REmatrix libraries can be either shortened or lengthened. This ability makes the use of REmatrix both very flexible and very quick). At the bottom of the panel is the DELAY control which can insert a delay before the initial processing of the IR. Using the delay you can adjust the response times of the loaded IRs and manipulate the combination of sounds that make up this new simulated environment.
