Eastwest SPACES II
The Sequel to the Ultimate 24-bit True Stereo Convolution Reverb is coming July 23rdSPACES II from EASTWEST is the highly-anticipated sequel to Spaces, the top-selling convolution reverb engine which set a new standard in impulse recording techniques. Produced by Doug Rogers and Nick Phoenix, SPACES II includes 353 brand new reverbs recorded in churches, concert halls, opera houses, catacombs, train stations, recording studios, and warehouses. It includes a new streamlined GUI, new control features, and all the reverbs from the first Spaces, making SPACES II the most powerful and versatile convolution reverb engine on the market.Brand New SpacesFrom stunning concert venues like Abravanel Hall in Salt Lake City, Reynolds Hall in Las Vegas, and the War Memorial Opera House in San Francisco, to exquisite sounding churches like St. Patrickâ€™s and St. Dominicâ€™s, to unique and extraordinary sounding locations like catacombs and Union Station in Los Angeles, the reverbs from these brand new spaces will inspire you and help bring your compositions to life with incredible realism. These are some the best venues EastWest has recorded in and they will all perfectly compliment the venues from the first collection of Spaces.New Streamlined GUI + New Control FeaturesSPACES II features a streamlined, completely re-vamped interface. Now the user can actually see visuals of each space – including those from the first edition of Spaces! In additional, new Next / Previous buttons allow the user to easily navigate the 1,020 reverbs from this massive collection. The biggest new feature is a brand-new Decay Time panel. Now youâ€™ll have absolute control of the decay time of each and every space, allowing for the ultimate in customization.Same Revolutionary Recording TechniquesThe same revolutionary impulse recording techniques that made the first Spaces so popular have been replicated in this new collection. The best gear from Fairchild, Manley, Meitner, Neumann, Neve, Sennheiser, Sony, Telefunken, and TG were used in each recording. ATC Monitors were posted in each space to emulate the real-world sound projection properties of various instruments. For orchestral halls, an impulse was taken in the exact position an instrument would be on stage. Therefore, an impulse for a French horn was created by firing the sweep tones from the middle to left rear of the stage, backwards and slightly towards the floor. 1st violin section impulses were taken by firing a series of speakers at an angle toward the ceiling, just like a real section, with a fifth speaker firing towards the floor to emulate the body of the violins. SPACES II includes a very hi-resolution, True Stereo engine that focuses on delivering the very best sound at a very low CPU load. Most impulses are in 8 channel format, so surround mixes can be created.
