Virtual Room Emulation Reverb VST Plugin


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, and 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 from walls, floors and ceilings following a sound created in an 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 environment).

  • It uses reverberation engine that does not produce metal harmonics. 

  • 32-bit sound processing with sample rate of 96kHz. 

  • 16 predefined room configurations that range from tiny to extra large rooms , allow you to quickly switch between different Virtual Room's configurations.

The plug-in is perfectly suited for any type of audio production when acoustic space simulation is needed from recording to post production. 


- Size: This is the Size ( front - rear distance ) of the room. It ranges 0 to 10 ( smallest to largest) 

- Width: This represents the width ( left-right distance) of the room. It ranges 0 (small) to 10 (wide). 

- 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 (high absorption).

- Gate: Gate Type Input. Only used in Freeze and Gated modes.

- Mode: Selects between Normal, Freeze and Gated modes.
* Normal: The usual reverb behavior.
* 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 effect. 
* 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 


MIDI CC# - Controller Name








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 systems.

System Requirements

      Before you install VST Instruments & Effects, please make sure your computer fulfills the following requirements:

  • Windows Operating System: Native dll file for Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 / x86 architecture (32-bit platform). For x64 (64-bit platform) test the demo plug-in with your host internal bit bridge as in Cubase up to v8.5 (VST Bridge), FL Studio (Bridged mode), Cakewalk SONAR (BitBridge), Cockos REAPER (Bridging), Acoustica Mixcraft (full 32/64-bit compatibility) or via external jBridge application for Ableton Live, PreSonus Studio One, Cubase 9, etc.

  • Linux Operating System: with the following requirements (Special Thanks to Paul Davis) or in MusE from v2.1 with Native VST support.

  • Intel Mac OS X: Via free Wine based host called SM Pro Audio VFX Software as standalone program or by routing the audio signals to your favorite sequencer (e.g. GarageBand, Logic Pro) via Cycling74 SoundFlower and IAC bus (Macintosh® OS X  10.5 Intel, Mac OS X 10.6 Intel).

  • Intel Mac OS X: Via Apple's Boot Camp software, included with Mac OS X v10.5 Leopard, v10.6 Snow Leopard and Mac OS X v10.7 Lion.

  • 500 MHz Processor (Pentium®, Celeron® AMD® or equivalent) minimum.

  • RAM: 128 MB or higher recommended.

  • VST compatible host / Digital Audio Workstation DAW/ MIDI Sequencer: This VST software can be "plugged in" to any host application that supports VST Technology like: Image-Line FL Studio, Steinberg Cubase Pro, Artist and Elements, Cakewalk by BandLab, Ableton Live, Cockos REAPER, PreSonus Studio One, Acoustica Mixcraft, MAGIX Acid Pro, MakeMusic Finale, Avid Sibelius, Mackie Tracktion, AudioMulch, Steinberg Nuendo, Magix Samplitude, Magix Music Maker, Cantabile (Lite, Solo, Performer), n-Track Studio, VSTHost, SAVIHost, and much more ...

  • An ASIO® soundcard is recommended for low latency real-time play.

  • Please test extensively the demo version of your selected product (s) in your host to make sure there are no misbehaviors before purchasing.

  Windows Operating System: Native dll file for Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 / x86 architecture (32-bit platform).
