Exponential Audio announces new surround plugins

Exponential Audio is proud to announce a pair of new surround reverb plugins. PhoenixVerb Surround and R2 Surround are modeled on the popular PhoenixVerb and R2 plugins and support every popular format from mono to 7.1. Both are native plugins, and support AAX, AU, VST and RTAS on both Mac and Windows in 32 and 64-bit forms. PhoenixVerb Surround is a pure, natural reverb that subtly blends with any source material. R2 Surround is a more active character reverb that makes any track stand out.

Both reverbs feature a brand-new early reflection section which allows source material to be placed with tremendous flexibility. Whether the mixer needs a wide, natural distribution for scoring or a tight, well-placed position for foley, it's easy to get the necessary result. This is followed by the reverberator itself, with its own rich set of controls. Each plugin has hundreds of well-organized presets, with many more to follow. There are halls, rooms, exteriors, plates, futzes and more. The engineer can easily mark any of these as a favorite, making quick work of finding just what's needed for the mix. Preset review is quick, with smooth and quiet parameter changes. Both plugins integrate with Avid® and Euphonix® consoles by means of EUCON®.

PhoenixVerb Surround and R2 Surround are the result of two decades of reverb design by Michael Carnes, designer of reverbs used around the world. They have undergone extensive review with many of the leading audio post engineers in the business and are already in production work. PhoenixVerb Surround will sell for $359 and R2 Surround for $459. There will be a bundle price for the pair. Release is expected before the end of November, 2013. More information is available now at Exponential Audio.

Exponential Audio is a private company located in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Seems you have been busy Michael.

How does the stereo mode in these compare to Phoenix and R2?

In particular with the new early reflection section. Will that make its way into the existing products eventually ?

Cheers

While the tails are very similar, the early stuff is much denser and there are several patterns to choose from. So there are cases where the stereo will be different in this version. I doubt that people who mix exclusively in stereo will need to get the surrounds. People who do post work may find it's handy to have both around (the original stereo plugs will have a little smaller CPU footprint), but I mainly did the stereo option in the surrounds so that they could stay in a familiar world.

No. A good way to have people hate you is to change the number or meaning of parameters in a plugin. That will break all existing automation in all sorts of unpleasant ways. There are lessons I've learned from the surrounds that will eventually make their way back to the stereo plugs.
