When convolution plug-ins first appeared, it took a pretty cutting-edge Mac or PC to run even a single instance in real time. Now that we all have CPU cycles to spare, convolution reverb no longer seems quite such a luxury, especially as most DAWs now include a convolution plug-in for free. With that in mind, third-party developers have been exploring ways to take the technology beyond merely applying ‘samples’ of real spaces to recorded audio, and to address the perception that, for all its realism, basic convolution can sound cold, static and uninvolving.
We have already covered the likes of Liquidsonics’ Reverberate and HOFA’s IQ-Reverb in these pages, and the newest kid on the block is Rematrix from Italian developers Overloud. Rematrix’s USP is that it’s not based around a single convolution ‘engine’: instead, each instance combines the signals from up to five different impulse responses loaded simultaneously. And should the resulting blend not be warm or thick enough for you, it can be augmented by an algorithmic reverb, before being passed through various effects and processing stages until it reaches a sufficiently soup-like consistency
Despite all that’s going on inside, the basic Rematrix interface is reassuringly simple. Five sliders control the relative levels of the five impulse responses that are contributing to the sound. The idea is that each offers a different style of reverberation, namely Hall, Room, Plate, Early and Special. Above these is a master section; by default, this displays a signal-flow chart showing the order of the various processing modules. Clicking on one of them enables you to adjust its parameters, though the order is fixed. It can also be switched to a waveform display, where the composite impulse response of all the active impulse responses is shown above a global Rev Time slider that adjusts all their lengths individually
