Source Audio Offers a Behind-the-Scenes Look at the Development Process of the Ventris Reverb

Source Audio Offers a Behind-the-Scenes Look at the Development Process of the Ventris Reverb

SOURCE AUDIO PRESS
April 6, 2017

Boston, MA – Following the success of the much-heralded Nemesis Delay, Source Audio has embarked on the creation of a highly anticipated follow up: the Ventris Reverb (scheduled for release in summer, 2017). In an informative behind-the-scenes video titled, Inside the Sound Laboratory with the Ventris Reverb, Source Audio’s Chief Scientist, Bob Chidlaw, sat down for an in-depth discussion on spring reverb and the development of the Ventris Reverb’s True Spring engine. The video breaks down the physics and mechanics of a real spring reverb tank and provides insight on what it takes to replicate the effect with digital signal processing.

Also included in the video is a blind listening test and Ventris Reverb giveaway. Source Audio recorded three sound clips: one with the Ventris and two others with real spring reverb tanks. The video asks viewers to pick which clip is the Ventris Reverb’s True Spring engine. All participants that guess correctly will be entered into a random drawing to win a Ventris Reverb.

In truth, Source Audio has a specific goal in this exercise. Rather than manipulating off-the-shelf digital reverb processors, Source Audio builds their effect engines from the ground up and engages in intense research and A/B testing before arriving at a final product. The SA engineering team has not reached the end of the True Spring engine’s development process and is looking for feedback on the work done so far. A Comments section on the contest’s landing page asks participants to ponder a pair of questions: “Was it easy or difficult pick our Spring Reverb engine from a line-up of real spring reverbs?” and “What did you hear in the clips that influenced your decision?” Source Audio will review the feedback and make design refinements as necessary.

The Ventris Reverb is a powerful stereo reverb pedal featuring 24 distinct effect engines ranging from classic Spring, Plate and Room sounds to advanced Shimmer, Modulation, and Pitch Shifting reverbs. The Ventris also features dual DSP hardware, eight onboard presets, true pre-set spillover, dual reverb stacking, stereo inputs and outputs, soft bypass (or “trails”), a unique hold function, full MIDI control, and deep editing functionality with the Neuro Mobile App (a free download for Android and iOS).

Like all pedals in the Source Audio One Series, the Ventris features an intuitive set of controls on the face of the pedal and a much larger set of editing parameters when connected to the Neuro Mobile App. Front panel controls include Pre-Delay, Time (which controls the length of the decay), Mix, and Tone (a high-frequency damping filter). The pedal also includes two variable knobs that change function depending on the nature of the selected Reverb engine. The Neuro Mobile App offers an additional set of reverb engines and an extended set of deep editing parameters. With the App users can edit highly customized presets then save and share them with other musicians in the Ventris/Neuro Community.

NAMM 2017 | MOTU announces three new audio interfaces

NAMM 2017 | MOTU announces three new audio interfaces

ANAHEIM CONVENTION CENTER — NAMM SHOW 2017 — JANUARY 19, 2017 — MOTU (booth A6410) is debuting three new audio interfaces with complementary digital audio I/O configurations, flexible routing, stand-alone mixing, AVB/TSN networking and connectivity to a host computer through class compliant, high-speed USB 2.0 (compatible with USB 3.0 and iOS). All three units share the same advanced features as MOTU’s other latest-generation interfaces, including proven, ultra low-latency USB drivers, flexible internal routing, 48-channel mixing, DSP effects and Wi-Fi control. The units include a front panel headphone jack with volume control for convenient monitoring and word clock I/O for resolving to other digital audio gear or house sync.

Housed in sturdy aluminum alloy half-rack enclosures, the M64, 8D and LP32 are ideal for routing digital audio streams in live performance systems, AVB/TSN network installations or recording studios of any size. An included mounting bracket kit allows two units to be joined side-by-side with each other, or mixed and matched with other MOTU half-rack units, to create a single rack-space configuration consisting of customized analog, digital and/or MIDI I/O tailored to the user’s needs.

The M64 provides one bank of optical MADI I/O, plus a 2nd independent bank of coaxial MADI I/O on BNC connectors, for a total of 256 simultaneous MADI I/O channels. A duplicate BNC output is included for splitting the coax bank to two separate destinations, without the need for a separate splitter.

The 8D provides two stereo pairs (four channels) of AES3 digital I/O and two stereo pairs of RCA S/PDIF digital I/O, for a total of 8 digital I/O channels. The AES3 inputs are equipped with sample rate conversion for easy, trouble-free digital transfers.

The LP32 provides four banks of 8-channel ADAT optical “lightpipe” digital I/O for a total of 32 channels at 44.1/48 kHz or 16 channels of SMUX at 88.2/96 kHz. Each I/O bank is individually switchable between 8-channel ADAT, 4-channel SMUX or stereo TOSLink (optical S/PDIF).

For all three units, powerful DSP delivers large console style mixing with 48 channels, 12 stereo busses, and 32-bit floating point effects processing, including modeled analog EQ, vintage compression and classic reverb. Flexible routing patches ins to outs, or splits input channels to multiple destinations. Each unit can be used as a stand-alone mixer with wireless control from a tablet, smartphone and laptop — even multiple smart devices simultaneously — over shared Wi-Fi.

Using the unit’s Ethernet port, users can connect another network-equipped MOTU interface for more I/O — or connect to an expanded AVB/TSN network with multiple interfaces and computers.
