Audiority Intros Polaris ‘Vintage Digital’ Reverb

Audiority has introduced Polaris – a new echo/reverb plugin, inspired by early hardware digital reverbs of the late 1970s.

Here’s what they have to say about it:

When hardware digital reverbs came out to the market they were really expensive. Most manufacturers were already exploiting chains of comb and allpass filters (smoother reverbs, but expensive in both resources and chips), there were other techniques involving the use of a single multitap delay line to create a reasonable reverb while keeping the cost affordable.

That idea is so simple yet powerful: you mix a bunch of unmodulated taps (Early Reflections) with the remaining modulated taps (Diffusion) to create a cheap but convincing reverb.

We extended this technique by making the Echo tap recirculating with the Diffusion section, allowing longer reverb tails. Furthermore you can easily edit all taps to create your own room responses, resonant combs, Karplus-like tuned delay lines, Chorus, Flanging, Vibrato and much more.

Features:

  • Single Multitap Delay Line
  • Early Reflections (8 Programmable Taps)
  • Diffusion (16 Programmable Modulated Taps)
  • Echo (Ms, Sync, Tuned)
  • Echo Modulation
  • LFO (Sin/Tri/Rnd – Hz, Sync)

Pricing and Availability:

Polaris is available now, for Mac & WIndows, for 35 Euro.

    1. What do you mean by “not one patch”? You mean they ditched all the presets in the demo?!?

      ps: Not sure a lack of presets in the demo would qualify as a deal breaker for most of us though….

  1. Hey guys,
    that’s Luca here (Audiority). The demo has all the presets of the full version.
    If something went wrong, please download the installer again (now we are at v1.0.2)

    Cheers,
    Luca
