  • The Most Detailed Convolution Reverb

    Introducing our first ever effects plug-in AIR Studios Reverb, an immensely detailed convolution reverb — created in collaboration with the team at London’s iconic AIR Studios. Using our very own “Virtual Positioning Technology”, you can position your sounds anywhere in the legendary Lyndhurst Hall — one of the world’s most sought-out recording spaces. 

     

    Our Spitfire engineering team have curated a selection of 54 presets to suit different instruments based on real life mixing practises, and to create a selection of standard reverb modes and spaces. Adjust the canopy height, material, hall layout and gallery dampening, and blend up to 8 individual true stereo signals to create a hyper realistic sonic experience.

    Smc0353 Lyndhusrt Hall

    An Audio Experience Like No Other

    In AIR Studios’ “Lyndhurst Hall”, musicians traditionally face the control room, which creates a distinct reverb character. However, a lesser-known yet iconic sound is achieved with musicians facing the organ — a setup that’s synonymous with Hans Zimmer scores recorded at AIR.

    To recreate both of these signature sounds within AIR Reverb, our team mirrored microphone placements on the hall floor.  Combined with dedicated speaker positioning, this allows you to position your virtual sound source facing either direction and capture the essence of these legendary recordings.


    The Pinnacle of Convolution with Spitfire Audio's Virtual Positioning Technology

    After two years of meticulous research and development, Spitfire Audio proudly presents AIR Studios Reverb – a revolutionary convolution reverb that breaks new ground in sonic authenticity.

    AIR Studios Reverb goes beyond traditional impulse responses, leveraging Spitfire Audio's proprietary Virtual Positioning Technology (VPT). This groundbreaking feature allows you to position your sound source anywhere within the legendary AIR Studios, capturing the precise ambiance of its unique acoustic spaces.

    What's included

    AIR Studios reverb is our flagship effects plugin. A convolution reverb with 67,000 impulse responses, True Stereo signal paths and Virtual Positioning Technology.


    Hall Controls

    Modify physical attributes within the hall to control the reverb tone and decay. Settings include: 

    • Hall Layout: Use this control to invert the room configuration. This affects both microphones and player position.
    • Canopy Height: Here you can set the canopy to 1 of 3 different heights: Low, Medium or High. Lower values have a smaller reverberation time than higher values
    • Canopy Material: Choose from 2 different materials on the canopy: Wood or Melatech. Melatech will give a softer, less reverberant sound than Wood.
    • Gallery Dampening: Enable this to add absorption into the gallery portion of the hall. Adding this will reduce the reverb time.


    BOTTOM BAR


    Input: Set the intensity of the input signal and the size of the ensemble, with gain control, mono/stereo switch & width of the source/ensemble.


    Reverb: Augment the sound with artificial pre-delay, and quick access to early and trail stretch controls.


    Output: Final tweaks to the balance between Dry & Wet signals and the output gain 


    Virtual Positioning Technology

    Drag and drop your sounds and musicians anywhere in the legendary Lyndhurst Hall. Choose your sound to be either mono or stereo. 

    Mixer

    Adjust your microphone signals to a variety of settings including tree, outriggers, binaural, ambient, gallery wide and gallery far. 


    Source

    Modify the performers’ radiation in the room, and which way the source is facing. The controls operate all within the rotation control.


    Shape

    Augment the reverb at various points in its overall decay time. Examples may be turning the Hall into that of a chamber, or alternatively creating huge wash reverb for synths.


    EQ

    Use the 5 band graphical EQ to either shape the input signal going into the Hall, or the Hall reverb itself by placing it pre or post.
