Software Compatibility

You'll need an iLok copy protection device in order to use this software. If you already have one, you're good to go. If you don't, you can buy one here. An iLok is a small USB gadget (about the size of a thumb drive) that plugs into your computer. It "unlocks" the software, allowing you to use it.

Most software is compatible with both Mac and Windows computers, but check to make sure.

If you're using Pro Tools, AAX plug-ins (or RTAS for older versions) are what you need. Most other Mac DAWs support AU plug-ins. VST is compatible with a number of Mac and Windows programs. Be sure you choose plug-ins that work with your DAW!

Audio Ease Altiverb 7 convolution reverb plug-in is a studio essential. For music production, Altiverb 7 is invaluable for adorning your mix elements with the just the right reverb. And if you're in post production, you'll appreciate the speed with which you can conjure the perfect ambience to match the scene you're mixing. Audio Ease has gone the world over to sample the best-sounding concert halls, recording studios, caves, car interiors, cathedrals — even the cockpit of a jumbo jet. For outstanding convolution reverb, Sweetwater can recommend Audio Ease Altiverb 7.

Convolution Reverb

Audio Ease Altiverb 7 wrote the book on convolution reverb. Convolution reverb is the sampled Impulse Responses (IRs) of acoustical spaces. Initially recorded with a click, starter pistol, or even a sine wave, the sonic signature of an acoustical space is then extracted and saved as an Impulse Response, or IR. Altiverb 7 contains boatloads of great-sounding IRs — all instantly accessible and with total recall.

Easily find the ambience you're looking for

Audio Ease Altiverb 7 makes it easy to find what you're looking for. Visual Browsing and Keyword Searching gives you instant, intuitive access to a world of acoustical spaces by letting you click on photos of rooms. If you've pulled up an impulse response that's almost perfect, "Similar" gives you, well, similar IRs — letting you quickly nail the exact sound you're after.

What's in the "News"

Audio Ease Altiverb 7 includes free access to new impulse responses. Just click on the "News" tab and download the latest IRs — without restarting, and all from within Altiverb 7.

Excellent - What more can be said!

The product is truly amazing and the service was excellent. I've already settled into this intuitive and "real" reverb. It might be an expensive plugin, but for a very good reason. If you're thinking of buying it, do it, you won't regret it. To some it might look a little scary, but don't let that put you off, all the main controls are very easy to use and not hard to miss. It has a lot of advanced bits under the hood, my advice play with it, it won't take you long to understand how powerful this thing is. Pick yourself a preset, tweak it and you're away! I can guarantee you'll get that perfect reverb(s) for your mix(s). Just to add, the service I received from Austin at Sweetwater was excellent, very helpful and accommodating. Thank you Austin!

Everything it's advertised to be!

If you're looking for a reverb that can impart a lot of vibe, this is the one. With the "positioner" function, altiverb has become a big part of my workflow. Like eq, volume, and pan, this has the ability to ensure each instrument has it's own "place."Get it.

Post Production Reverb

The Audio Ease Altiverb 7 is the best reverb that I have ever used by far. I do sound mix for film and the realism of this unit is amazing!The small room reverbs were always impossible to create with other units (in my opinion), Altiverb 7 nails this.I have not yet gotten around to using the IR to create my own reverbs because the presets (and ability to tweak them to taste) are fantastic.I'm sure that for music this reverb would be phenomenal because the larger verbs are so lush and convincing, but like I said, it's the small reverbs that won me over.

Very very good!

This plug-in is incredible. All the detail of my dry recorded tracks are preserved and the spaces you can achieve are inspiring. When playing mixes back through various sound systems, Altiverb really allowed those rooms and spaces to be heard in amazing realism without any harshness or phasing. Highly recommended.

This is one of the most important tools I have. It is always quick and efficient to get exactly the ambiance that you require without delving through thousands of tiny parameters and flipping through a million presets. The stock impulses are excellently organized and very fast to navigate. Excellent sounding impulses and a very nice variety to choose from.
