Nugen Audio has added what it describes as “an unprecedented level of tweak-ability” to its 3D-compatible convolution reverb, Paragon.
According to the company, Paragon offers full control of the decay, room size and brightness via state-of-the-art re-synthesis modelled on 3D recordings of real spaces.
The solution features spectral analysis and precise EQ of the Impulse Responses (IR), which are analysed, decomposed and re-synthesised to create new authentic spaces.
Nugen said this ensures a small digital footprint for the IR library and makes it possible to configure limitless combinations of spaces with just a few adjustments to the settings. Paragon also features individually configurable crosstalk per channel; unique technology for re-synthesis of authentic IRs, HPF and LPF per channel; and switchable LFE.
Paragon, which can produce reverb in mono and stereo, operates in up to 7.1.2 channels of audio, making it well-suited to broadcast applications, added Nugen. Setting the reverb apart from conventional reverbs is the fact it does not use static IRs, which makes it possible to transform the sound space transparently.
Nugen has added new presets and an improved browser, with search, tagging and favourite functions. These added elements are especially important to people working on movies and TV shows with exterior scenes, which are found in nearly every production, said the company. Additionally, the new preset browser makes it easier for users to organise their presets, which further expedites the creative process.
Nugen Audio will showcase the latest developments to Paragon at NAB Show.
