The IK Multimedia CSR Plate Reverb Processor Software Plug-In (Download) is designed to model the electromechanical Piezo-electric plate reverb units made famous in the 1950s and 1960s. The software plug-in is based on a physical model of attaching a loudspeaker and a Piezo-electric sensor to a thin resonating sheet of metal (the plate). The audio signal is played through the loudspeaker and the resonant signal is picked up by the Piezo and then mixed back in with the original dry signal. The sound of the reverb can be adjusted by altering the physical properties of the plate such as its length, thickness, dampening factor, and the position of the Piezo pickup. The software plug-in provides the user with the ability to make comparable adjustments to the virtual plate of the reverb algorithm.
The plug-in can be operated in either easy mode or advanced mode. In easy mode, the most basic controls are available including mix, diffusion, reverb time, low time, high frequency, and high frequency dampening. Switching the software to advanced mode enables the user to adjust additional reverb parameters in greater detail.
The plug-in is fully compatible with native 32- and 64-bit applications on both Mac OS X (Universal Binary) and Windows (XP/Vista/7/8) computers. It supports VST, RTAS, AAX, and Audio Units plug-in formats. It can also be used with the T-RackS CS standalone application (sold separately).
