Acon Digital FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

DeVerberate 2 — Reverb Reduction Tool with new Early Reflections Filter

Oslo, May 15th, 2018 — Acon Digital has released version 2 of their acclaimed DeVerberate plug-in for reverb reduction. While earlier versions of DeVerberate successfully focused on the suppression of late reverberation, typically the diffuse reverb tail arriving 20 to 30 milliseconds after the direct sound, the first reflections to arrive after the direct sound were left untouched. These early reflections change the tonal character of the recording and can cause the hollow and disturbing sound frequently experienced when recording in small reverberant rooms.

DeVerberate 2 introduces a new and unique Early Reflections Filter that works in conjunction with the late reverb suppression found in version 1. The Early Reflections Filter uses sophisticated statistical methods to estimate the so called impulse response of the early reflections. The impulse response is then utilized to calculate an inverse filter that cancels out the effect of the early reflections.

Estimation of early reflections in DeVerberate 2

Further improvements have been made in the automatic reverb time estimation which now works more reliably than in earlier versions.

Use Cases

  • Improve dialog and location sound
  • Forensic specialists can improve speech intelligibility
  • Attenuate reverberation in existing recordings
  • Boost the natural reverberation in existing recordings
  • Change the perceived distance in a mix by changing the balance between the direct sound and the reverberation

DeVerberate 2 is available for $99.90 USD as of today from the Acon Digital Store. DeVerberate 1.x customers who purchased after January 1st, 2018 are entitled to a free upgrade, otherwise the upgrade fee is $29.90 USD until June 1st, 2018 and $49.90 USD after that.
