Virtual Room Emulator VST (Reverb)
Virtual Room Emulator is a VST
reverb plug-in for native PC platforms. Used to create psycho-acoustic
models in the DSP environment to simulate boundary reflections created
in a real room, adding a sense of space and depth to
otherwise 'dry' recordings.
It simulates the reverberation of a sound in a rectangular type room,
allowing separate control of the room's width, depth and height. It
also allows you to control the distance between the listener and the
sound positioned in that virtual room.
The Virtual Room Emulator section offers control over the size, width,
damping factor of the room by way of three linkable sliders. Produces a
natural sounding room reverberation effect that gives you true room
perception, from small rooms to large concert halls.
Small rooms have a high percentage of early reflections
( the first feedback from the closest
objects) that can give more body to tracks. It is also good with
acoustic guitars and voices. Larger rooms are better with
strings, or wind instruments and synthesizer pads.
Reverberation technique that simulates a real
acoustic environment of a room.
Separate control of Room's dimensions, produces
naturally sounding reverberation.
Early and late reflections, (The sound reflections

acoustically reflective environment).
Damping to re-create a realistic room (In the
context of reverberation, damping refers to the rate at which the
reverberant energy is absorbed by the various surfaces in the

plug-in is perfectly suited for any type of audio production when

- Size: This is the Size ( front - rear
distance ) of the room. It ranges 0 to 10 ( smallest to
- Width: This represents the width (
left-right distance) of the room. It ranges 0 (small) to 10
- Damp: (Damping factor) This
is a way
to describe the surface absorption, or how sound is reflected by the
walls, floors and ceilings. A higher Damp setting causes high
frequencies to decay faster. It Ranges 0 (near no absorption) to 10
- Gate: Gate Type Input. Only used in Freeze
and Gated modes.
- Mode: Selects between Normal, Freeze and
* Normal: The usual reverb
* Freeze: When this mode is active, the gate input works as on/off
switch for sustain-like effect. When the gate is low, the reverb works
as normal. When the gate goes high, Virtual Room Emulator freezes the
* Gated: When in this mode, Virtual Room Emulator only outputs wet
(reverberated) signal when the gate is high. When the gate is set to
low, a little decay is internally applied to smooth the transition back
to, the dry-only state.
- Mix: The proportion of the "Dry/Wet" signal in the output

Reverberation, in psycho-acoustics and acoustics, is the
persistence of sound after a sound is produced. A
reverberation, or reverb, is created when a sound or
signal is reflected causing a large number of
reflections to build up and then decay as the sound is
absorbed by the surfaces of objects in the space – which
could include furniture and people, and air. This is
most noticeable when the sound source stops but the
reflections continue, decreasing in amplitude, until
they reach zero amplitude. The development of artificial
echo/reverberation chambers was important for sound
recording because of the limitations of early recording
