FabFilter has just released their new Pro-R 2 plug-in, a transformative update to its Pro-R reverb plug-in. The Pro-R 2 brings a raft of new next-gen features including comprehensive multichannel compatibility, two brand-new reverb algorithms, IR import and replication, ducking and gating functions, analog-style saturation, and much more.
The Pro-R 2 places reverbs in three-dimensional space with support for immersive channel layouts up to 9.1.6 Dolby Atmos. Pro-R 2 configures itself for multichannel formats automatically whenever it is added to a surround channel, and individual Decay Rate and Post EQ bands can be applied to any combination of channels using the new Speakers panel.
Then there’s the brand new reverb algorithms – Vintage, which is inspired by classic digital reverb units of the ’80s and ’90s; and Plate, which serves up the evocative metallic sound of plate reverb — ideal for drums and vocals.
The Pro-R 2 also adds the ability to import impulse responses and have them automatically recreated as algorithmic setups — including Decay Rate and Post EQ shaping — that closely match their sonic characteristics. Check out a full demo of the Pro-R 2 below and get it here on sale for $127.
