Hello Christer and welcome to TSB. And you're right, it does look interesting. I'd like to hear more...

And a post application



EDIT - dammit, Mac and PT only.

Very interesting indeed. Pity there doesn't seem to be a demo version available, because I'd love know how (and how well) DSpatial Reverb II works in combination with a DAW, say Logic, — the software appears to be a combination of a stand-alone application plus AU- or AAX-plugins (unless the plugins are plugin-versions of the stand-alone software) — and, obviously, what quality it has, compared to Ircam SPAT. (The video certainly sounds promising.)

It looks interesting. The videos sound promising. Too bad it is Mac only. If anybody wants to buy, you can get it at a discount currently: use the coupon code 'rev40' and you'll get a 40% discount. Makes 119.40€. If there were a Windows version I'd probably have bought it.

@Guy.
Are you sure the videos you provided are with the ReverbII plugin and not with the companys larger/more expensive plugins.
The last on, the film, doesn't really look like the stereo only ReverbII

Best,
Anders

Well, all three videos are linked from the home page for Reverb II linked in the OP under their "listen" buttons - http://dspatial.com/reverb-ll/ . A note at the bottom says "DSpatial Reverb is a standard AAX plugin and can be easily integrated in your Pro Tools and S6.
Two kind of inserts are provided: standard Pro Tools inserts for up to 7.1.2 channels, and a special multi-mono mode for up to 48 output channels". But elsewhere it does say about mono or stereo outputs, so I agree it seems confusing.

Has to be said I lack the will to delve much deeper, the moment I realised it was Mac only I sort of wandered off. But maybe someone else can provide more clarity?

Interesting-no VST version so Cubase Mac users can’t run it either.

I think Reverb and ReverbII are two different products.
ReverbII is mono/stereo and $149/199
Reverb is mono to 48 outputs and $600

Sent an email to ask about vst and Windows-versions. They answered that they don't intend to bring it to Windows. A vst-version could happen at some point, but they have no plans to do it in the foreseeable future. That settles the matter for me. It looks like they are focused on post pro if they focus on Mac users exclusively.

Shame, good info to have though Linos. I guess they must have the stats, but I've worked in a few dubbing theatres that run on Windows. Mac is more common for sure, but it's not ubiquitous.

Sooooo
1. For those on osx that want to try a demo it's just a matter of asking them (I did)
-->[email protected]
2. The have a upgrade path to the bigger sibling Reverb, without the II's, it's €449 if you own the ReverbII (duh!?!)
-->Else reverb is €595
3. They DO have "blackfriday" sales, right now it's 10% off on the Reverb due to "certain events such as launches or trade shows etc."
-->http://www.ifema.es/broadcast_01/

I got the ReverbII so thank you @Christer C for the heads up.
Too busy to install and evaluate now but since there's a upgrade path I figure I'll get it now and worry later :)

Regards,
Anders

Honestly.
I’m finishing this last episode this weekend.
Next up.
Have to deliver “demo-main themes/signatures” for three new tv-shows and one major commercial campaign by Tuesday next week. And then negotiations...
Teaching the last two weeks of May and then some ENG work (boom operator = well paid vacation)
If all is well I’ll look at this late June/beginning of July.

But, yeah, I’ll try to post a short snippet when I do find the time for it :)

Best,
/Anders

But again, not Cubase Mac, which requires VST instead of AU.
