wow! can't wait to try them out. Has anyone tried making presets with VVV that are modeled about the Bricasti's??

Quick note to join the chorus of thanks for this update, Sean. It's both rare and refreshing to see a developer provide an update like this - years later, at no cost, all for the benefit of us end users. Looking forward to hearing what you come up with next!

It really does. I've only had a short time to play with it, but so far it seems to have an amazing ability to "blend" with the mix so that it adds warmth and space without superimposing a distracting color of its own.

I'm glad folks like the Chaotic algorithms!

I have to admit: Chaotic Chamber behaves in an opposite direction to what I thought it would do when I was coding it. I expected the results to be noisier and more distorted. Instead, it sounds LESS colored than the more "linear" algorithms in VintageVerb. I'm still processing the implications of this...

I think it may have to do with perception, I find it completely counterintuitive that adding distortion can add clarity. Our brain may pick up on that fuzz as stimuli and focus on the sound better?..... Way above my pay grade......!

If I was going to wager a guess, I'd say that the tape-style saturation within the Chaotic algorithms is helping to tame transient peaks. Reduced peak levels = less ringing in the reverb algorithms.

I'm also using some other tricks to reduce ringing in Chaotic Chamber, that aren't particularly analog influenced.

It seems almost like a camouflage kind of effect. A more smooth and coherent reverb can be picked out from the background of the mix, while the more chaotic one disappears, just as the "chaos" of a camouflage garment makes the wearer disappear in a busy visual context. (I have no idea how well that relates to what's happening technically, but that's how my ears are interpreting it.)

Your ticket has been received, and we are working on it. We've had several back and forth replies with you so far today. These things sometimes take a bit of time, so hang tight!

I just verified that VintageVerb 1.7.1 loads and runs in my Windows 10 system, in the latest Studio One. I haven't had the chance to do more than just test it on an audio track, so I want to go a bit more in depth before I send out an official reply to your support ticket.

One suggestion (which is a good, generic debugging question, so probably a good candidate for a forum post): Can you check and see if VintageVerb works in other DAWs on your system? I always recommend using Reaper as a lightweight DAW to install, which is really useful for installing and checking the Valhalla installs.

Hmm... That's not encouraging. Oh well.

Are you running s1 in 64 bit win 10 native in win8 compatability mode?

So weird... All your other stuff works fine

I'm running S1 in Win 10 native 64-bit. No compatibility mode. I just tried Windows 8 compatibility mode, and it seems to run fine.

Let's take this to the support emails. I should be able to give a more detailed response in the next day or so. In the meantime, I would recommend that you verify that VintageVerb works/doesn't work with other DAWs on your system, to troubleshoot if it is an installation related issue.

No issues here. I'm on Studio One, Windows 10, no compatibility mode (all my iLok plugins that required it were updated and no longer do, so it's been off for a few months).

Huh! I'm sure they'll get me sorted!

On an aside, compatability mode was ridiculous

It also runs fine on win 10 pro 1703 and Cubase 9.0.20 pro. No issues at all.

if you push the send level to ridiculously you get a very very nice saturation..within the density of the algorithm it's a very unique effect.

thank you for the inspiration

I love reverb and want to buy more. However VVV is so good, I really don't have a compelling reason to do so. I have a clean verb with Mixbus and VVV is so deep, I really feel covered....The Chaotic algo really does blend well. I've found you can back it off dramatically and it still has a presence. Anyone else finding this?

Here's a Chaotic Chamber preset that I made after the 1.7.1 release (so it didn't make it into the new presets) that I'm using on mixes all the time for giving snare and toms just a sense of "space" but not really "reverb":

<ValhallaVintageVerb pluginVersion="1.7.1" presetName="CC-Snare Length" Mix="1" PreDelay="0.15906727313995361328" Decay="0.27387455105781555176" Size="0.20000000298023223877" Attack="0.15000000596046447754" BassMult="0.56595015525817871094" BassXover="0.46496489644050598145" HighShelf="0.5416666865348815918" HighFreq="0.46526357531547546387" EarlyDiffusion="1" LateDiffusion="1" ModRate="0.064999997615814208984" ModDepth="0.65600001811981201172" HighCut="0.59053885936737060547" LowCut="0.26174497604370117188" ColorMode="0.6666666865348815918" ReverbMode="0.6666666865348815918"/>

Will the next plugin be a reverb based on 'chaos' algorithms?

I hope not. The chaos algos in VVV 1.7 detune the signal just as much as the other types of modulation, except the random ones. Send an acoustic piano through them and you'll know what I mean.
