Audio professionals in search of a top-quality reverb for stereo, surround, or immersive audio applications will be impressed with the iZotope Exponential Audio Symphony 3D, an algorithmic reverb that can add character and color to sound sources. The plug-in offers 24-channel support, useful in music and postproduction contexts. Whether you're preparing audio for surround sound formats (up to 7.1), Atmos, or Auro 3D, this reverb can provide an intuitive yet tweakable interface as well as a pleasurable sound.
Exponential Audio plug-ins trace their origin to the classic Lexicon units of yesteryear. Symphony 3D certainly expands upon that sound, adding color as well as dimension to your signals. 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.
