Starting with 0.7.5, AriesVerb is available natively on the Mac platform. Besides this, there are some minor improvements. Check out the release notes for the full details!
This update focuses on usability, with some feature additions and of course new presets. Many user requests that accumulated over time have been implemented, and the development seems to go in both directions simultaneously: On the one side is the experimental crowd who wants even more crazy things, and on the other side is the professional
crowd who wants presets modeled after familiar hardware and usability. I am happy to be able to serve both! Check out the release notes for the full details!
Here is an update with small, but significant feature additions to the sound engine. There is now an ‘Algorithm’ page on the UI to configure the basic layout of the feedback network, together with a schematic.
There are also 23 new presets. See the details in the release notes!
Today I played around with running different sounds through AriesVerb (as I often do). I was surprised how strong the modulation already is in the default program “Temple of the Ancestors”. I played a—cough—free interpretation of the Pastoral sonata through AriesVerb.
Another notable sound I found functions like a torture test for algorithmic reverbs. It’s a machine gun! This sound can expose many a weakness, and make reverbs fail that sound flawless otherwise. I designed a forest-like environment for exactly this to sound good. This preset will be available in the next update, as it makes use of some new algorithmic features.
There is now a demo available of the latest version of AriesVerb.
The demo is fully functional except for the ability to recall settings.
