VST Spring Reverb

Download the Windows VST-Plugin (version 1.0 - 16/04/2011 - 184kB) : SH-SpringReverb.zip or the MAC OS Audio Unit (AU) & VST (version 1.0 - 16/04/2011 - 576kB): SpringReverb.zip


NEWS:

The plug-in has been recently successfully tested by the BEAT-Magazin (#77 / 04.2012).
They are impressed about how close the simulation comes to a real spring reverberation unit.


For the reason that the plug-in development uses the JAVA framework you need to have an installed JAVA Runtime Environment.
If you don't have the JRE (JAVA Runtime Environment) installed then you'll get it here: http://www.java.com/download/manual.jsp

Plug-in Installation:

Windows VST:
Just unzip the dedicated ZIP-File and copy the plug-in folder into your VST plug-in directory.

Apple Mac OS Audio Units and VSTs:
1.) Unzip the dedicated ZIP-File
2.) Copy Reverb.vst to ~/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/VST
3.) Copy Reverb.component to ~/Library/Audio/Plug-Ins/Components

Important: To use the Audio Units you need to copy the *.vst as well.

Technical Specification:
To simulate the physical model of the springs the program solves the partial differential equations by applying a Finite Elements algorithm.
A combination of three springs - each of different characteristic - assures a reverb dispersion which is comparable to a real spring reverberation unit.

Supported Sample Rates: 44.1kHz up to 192kHz
Computing Precision: 64Bit internal / 32Bit Plug-In
Audio Channels: Mono (uses the left channel of stereo tracks)

Dry/Wet [%]:
Mix between clean and reverb signal.

Spring Selection:
The program allows the individual selection and combination of up to three springs to shape the character of the reverb.

Reverb Time [%]:
Defines the T60 reverberation time.

Gain [dB]:
Sets the gain level for the output signal.
