Native Instruments - Reflektor (Convolution Reverb)

NI released a new convolution reverb utilizing the Guitar Rig platform:

"REFLEKTOR"

Looks and sounds interesting!

Gear interested
 

The audio demos sound impressive to me. I'm very interested about the CPU load, can it really be that low?

Yeah, it really is pretty low. Not low like an EQ, it IS an IR verb at the end of the day, but pretty low.
It was really fun doing IRs, Patches and demos for this baby thumbsup

Which ones did you do? It would be cool knowing which ones you created ;-)

I like the GUI
there's got to be some usable stuff from the 350 samples to chose from, the audio demos sound good to me

Doesn't look like they are offering a demo to test it...or am I missing something?

I guess there is none, just like with the Kore-soundpacks.

But i'm going to update to Komplete 7, where Reflektor will be included anyway.

Humm to bad - because I have a Convolution verb and hate to spend even $120 for some thing that is duplicating what I already have.

Are all convolution reverbs the same?

I doubt they are but if there's no demo I have to buy it to find out...hence my issue and point.

it makes sense as party of komplete (and tools like kontakt...) not so much as a standalone IMHO. the conv rev market is already pretty saturated.

But honestly what part of the convolution reverb market offers one for around $120 that's worth a hoot?

LiquidSonics Reverberate is $50 and is really good I've heard and has modulation. All convolution reverb are more or less the same, depends more or less on the impulses you run through them.

From my experience their are very noticeable differences among convolution reverbs. The modulation issue is a big deal as are the filters. But I've also focused on a more ambiguous issue concerning how the various engines process the gain of signals in relation to the IR.

This looks like something I've been waiting a long time for - yes I have Reverberate and Space Designer but this looks geared for something I've always loved, and that is time syncing reverse reverb patterns with the lowest latency.

I have never found a reverse reverb plugin I've been happy with. The best one I've seen is RV7000 which unfortunately is a part of Reason and can't be used as a plugin in other hosts.

I think I have an NI coupon or two around here somewhere....

To demo Reflektor, you need to have or download Guitar Rig 4.1. (Which you can download for free.)
Once you have it installed, all you need to do to see every component, including Reflektor, is to go to
Help-> 'Switch to Demo Mode" and then restart the app.

You won't have all the IRs but you can try it out.

Won't happen. All their FX are "guitar rig plugins". Look at their products, their business model. This is how their products work nowadays.

It hardly matters in practice imho, you can get guitar rig player for free and use it that way. And, having all their FX in one environment has all kinds of work flow benefits.

Took me a while just to find it. Going to Guitar Rig 4 to find a convolution reverb isn't something you just think of on your own.
Starting working with it this morning and sounds pretty sweet.

I have found it extremely handy as it's file loading system allows easy loading of whole folders to browse/test quickly via it's front panel navigation options as opposed to the single IR loading of Space Designer.

Having it in Guitar Rig also has the 'effect' of encouraging 'out of the box' creative pre/post processing with the whole GR fx arsenal of IR in situ ;-)
