Altiverb 7 for music

Altiverb Music Spaces

Music Spaces

The Altiverb Library of Acoustics contains the most sought after spaces for music. The main concert halls of the cities of Berlin, Los Angeles Vienna and Amsterdam for your orchestral work. Or legendary rock studios from New York or Paris. But you can also put your audio in French Cathedrals, the Gol Gumbaz of India or London's Wembley stadium.

Altiverb Gear

Vintage reverb gear

Altiverb contains a tremendous amount of classic reverb gear and purpose built echo chambers. You'll find all the EMT plates you want, spring reverbs, classic digital gear like the 480, 224, the AMS RMX 16 or the EMT 240. Add the Frank Sinatra and Beach Boys echo chambers and you have everything you need to recreate all those classic sounds.

Altiverb Experimental IRs

Experimental Responses

Grab any sound from your tracks or the Finder and toss it on Altiverb to use it as an impulse response. Try piano chords, breaking glass, spoken word, thunder or a drum loop. In convolution each sample of the input is replaced by the entire impulse response. So if you use a piano chord as an impulse Response, and you clap your hands into Altiverb, out comes the chord.

Altiverb stage position tool

Stage Positioning

An exhaustive recording session in a Viennese concert hall gave us an algorithm that allows you to accurately place your sound anywhere on stage of all our concert halls, or in any of our other rooms. Physically correct sound placement using the Altiverb Stage Positioner creates a stunningly realistic audio panorama.

Altiverb musical reverb gate

Musical gates and delays

To tie your reverb effects more to your tracks Altiverb 7 features a reverb gate that is set using note values. And it is tied to your song's tempo. Any reverb tail can be reversed and handles the same way, and Altiverb's pre-delay can also be set in this manner, so it is easy to put that slap-back delay in a musical spot.

Altiverb brightness control

Brightness and Chaos

The Brightness parameter closely fits a classic synthetic reverb on top of the Impulse Response. This adds a particular brightness in a way EQ never can. Toss in a bit of chaotic modulation in your reverb and not every hit will sound identical in the reverb. Slightly out of tune notes will be covered up in the reverb tail by modulation.

Altiverb post production spaces

Spaces for post

The Altiverb Library of Acoustics contains hundreds of spaces geared towards audio post for picture. This includes 18 bed rooms, 30 car interiors, trains, boats, many streets and forests, the cockpit of a boeing 747, clubs, sports stadiums, bathrooms, closets and cupboards.

Altiverb total recall

Total recall automation

Everything, including the impulse response choice is automatable in Altiverb 7. This means that you do not have to jump through hoops to simply automate Altiverb 7 100% accurately. While there are still single-click snapshots, you do not need them to automate Altiverb fully.

Altiverb slate clapper IRs

Matching Heaven

To make an IR just drag a sweep recording onto Altiverb. Use a portable radio, a starter pistol shot. Altiverb 7 even has built in correction curves for the most popular clapper boards. Next time you need to match production acoustics and all you have is a slate clap, think of Altiverb.

Altiverb search for spaces

Keyword Searching

You do not have to endlessly browse through hundreds of spaces to find exactly what you need. Altiverb 7 has a powerful keyword search field so you can look for items like 'metallic resonances' 'bed room', 'street slapback' or 'brick room'

Altiverb similar search

Find similar Sounding IRs

You found a space that works but it's not quite the thing yet? You can tweak EQ or damping parameters, but you can also try Altiverb's 'Similar' button. It will list a number of similar sounding alternatives to the currently chosen impulse response.

Altiverb next door

Walls, Floors and Doors

Altiverb contains many samples made through walls, doors and floors. If you need a rejected lover to beg from behind the front door, that party-at-the-neighbours sound or an upstairs piano practice, browse the next-door category of impulse responses.
