Balance Mastering has released a free plugin, Teufelsberg Reverb, that recreates the sound of a Berlin cold-war era spy tower.
The plugin, available for Linux, Mac & Windows, is based on impulse responses created at the ruins of Field Station Berlin.
The Field Station is one of the most unique places in the world:
- Field Station Berlin was a US National Security Agency listening station, abandoned after the fall of the Berlin Wall.
- It’s current state has been called a ‘graffiti paradise’.
- It’s located on Teufelsberg, a man-made hill, created from the rubble of buildings destroyed in World War II.
- The hill buries a Nazi technical college, because the buildings were reportedly too solid to blow up.
- Teufelsberg is German for “Devil’s Mountain”.
- Wild pigs are known to roam the area and may be radioactive because of fallout from Chernobyl.
- Some think the shape of the Station held a hidden message from the West…
Teufelsberg Reverb Features:
- Lush reverbs, accurately captured at the infamous Berlin surveillance tower.
- 6 different IR reverb sounds.
- Fast, zero-latency convolution.
- A/B compare and preset saving functions
- Linux, Windows & Mac downloads.
- Free and open source.
Teufelsberg Reverb is a free download from Balance Mastering.
