GliderVerb, has just been released from Amazing Noises. It’s an interesting reverb device which simulates a room that gradually changes the shape of it’s room over a set period of time.
“GliderVerb is a “reverberator with glissandos” simulating a room gradually changing its shape. It is an expanded version of an algorithm created by James McCartney for his Supercollider 2 programming language.”
This new verb plugin is available as a free download via Amazing Noises (17.1kB ZIP, 1 Max for Live device in AMXD format for Ableton Live).
You should be aware that you will have to sign up for a free Amazing Noises account for you to be able to download it. All you need to do is add it to your shopping cart and then finish the procedure at check out. The link will then become available to you through the browser window as well as your email. The link in the browser window is pretty tiny, so make sure you don’t miss it.
The unique aspect about GliderVerb is that it replicates a room that is constantly changing which is a completely new and exciting concept. It sounds really neat on paper kind of like a revolving reverb sound. You could easily get similar effects by automating the parameters on a normal reverb plugin but having a tool that specifically takes care of that for you is cool (and it’s free!).
This free reverb will work on both Mac and Windows based PC’s. You do need to have an installation of Ableton Live 9 in order to use the device. If you do want some more Live freebies, take a look at the Free Devices page on the Amazing Noise website.
