Available for download, Exponential Audio PhoenixVerb Surround from iZotope is an algorithmic reverb that provides an inherently clean and neutral sound. Whereas the stereo version of PhoenixVerb is primarily used in music mixing, this reverb operates in formats up to 7.1 surround.
That feature, alongside an inherently transparent and tweakable sound, makes PhoenixVerb Surround suitable for post-production and sound design. Use it to bring a realistic ambience and depth to ADR dialogue or Foley sounds.
You'll find global controls over predelay and input filtering. Tabs are provided for the verb's attack, tail, and early reflection parameters. Each tab reveals a page full of parameters. Whether you need to temper early reflections, change the dimension of the space, or manipulate diffusion characteristics, your reverberating needs shall be met.
A balance tab is on hand to ensure you can tweak the signal for each channel independently. This section offers controls over levels and delays on a per-channel basis. You'll also note the 3D tab, which provides connectivity for more complex multichannel mixes.
Note the Keyword and Preset section in the top right of the GUI; here you can find over 900 presets categorized by type. Click on the magnifying glass above this section, and you can search for presets by typing in your own terms.
This product is compatible with Mac and Windows platforms. It operates in AU, VST, and AAX formats. An iLok account is required for authorizing the plug-in, though an iLok key is not strictly necessary.
