Altiverb 8 Convolution Reverb Now Available

Audio Ease has introduced Altiverb 8, a major update to its convolution reverb for Mac OS & Windows. The update adds support for native Apple silicon and VST3, Dolby Atmos, a resizable GUI, cloud size control, and more.

Altiverb is designed to make your audio sound as if it was recorded somewhere else, whether it’s the Sydney Opera House, a Scottish underground oil tank the size of a cathedral, or in a porta-potty.

New in Altiverb 8:

  • Native Apple silicon: M1 / M2 & Intel macs are fully supported.
  • Dolby Atmos support (XL only): Up to 9.1.6 input and output channels for fully immersive convolution reverb.
  • New scalable user interface (except AU version).
  • Cloud size: Automatic input-pan following reverb, locate each reverb around the panning of the source, even when multiple sources move in a single instance.
  • Smooth and clickless: IR switches, reverb adjustments and stage position changes all practically seamless without any clicks.
  • New output level meters (XL only): These allow manipulation of level and delay per output channel.
  • Pure Dolby Atmos IRs (XL only): Almost all of the hundreds of the music spaces (concert halls, churches, cathedrals, studios, scoring stages) have been upgraded to Dolby Atmos by utilizing the original extra recordings that have been routinely made throughout the years. All outputs of Altiverb are always real and distinct original speaker to microphone takes.
  • Mono pan following (XL only): Across surround busses up to Dolby Atmos (9.1.6), making multi-mono instances unnecessary, reducing session load time considerably.
  • Improved IR searching: The newly designed browser offers more and quicker ways to find the right IR.
  • New IR Tool: This tool enables you to create your own IRs, with output support up to 9.1.6 channels.
  • Computer activation: The Altiverb license can be activated on a computer or on a USB iLok key. The iLok USB key is NO LONGER required.
  • VST3 Plug-In: To ensure compatibility with worldclass VST host applications (DAWs) like Ableton Live, Cubase, Nuendo and Digital Performer Altiverb 8 features a VST3 plug-in.
  • Center: Almost all IRs have been supplied with a real center channel for LCR or 5.0 7.0 without center bleed.
  • Backward Compatibility: Altiverb 8 is fully backward compatible replacing altiverb 7 in your sessions.
  • New Spaces: Many new spaces are included with Altiverb 8, like the Zuidervermaning from the intro video, a dance club, some industrial spaces, a Tesla, camper vans, atmos plates and springs reverbs, and a selection of buckets and bins including a porta toilet. All including atmos.
  • Improved loading speed: Your sessions with many Altiverbs will load quicker than ever.
