The advantages of modeled IRs
microphone recorded IRs
1 - Unparalleled speed
Find your best room for any situation in seconds
Playing back IRs from a standard convolution reverb may require a substantial amount of time.
With DSpatial Reality the best room for any situation can be found quickly and because of its intuitive modeling structure, specific parameters can be modified to suit any individual project. If desired, adjustments can be saved as presets and used as a starting point for other projects.
2 - Flexibility
Change size, shape and surfaces*
Model the acoustic and physical properties of any room on the fly. Adjust the size, shape and surfaces included with the desired environment and manipulate any acoustic parameter, like the amount of glass, absorbers or diffusers present. To make it even easier, a relevant combination of options has been included, and once modified the DSpatial rendering engine will compute thousands of pertinent variables and recreate the chosen room with unbelievable detail. No other reverb engine on the market comes close to this level of artistic control and creative power.
*Available in Reality Builder versions
3 - Maximum time range
Just change size
Adjusting reverb times can prove to be a real challenge.
With DSpatial, the reverberation length can be changed from 0.1 to 10 seconds without having to change presets or readjusting any other settings.
The size and length of the featured IRs can be modified to match the space being simulated while retaining sonic integrity and character, making programming much easier.
4 - Maximum immersion
Close your eyes and feel inside
When multiple mics are used to capture the impulse response of a room there is a compromise between imaging and envelopment. Adding extra microphones to support yet more channels yields a diminished return because of the loss of spatial resolution due to microphone directivity leaks.Thus the compromise between the number of channels and the necessary de-correlation in the diffuse field makes it impossible to record optimally decorrelated responses of more than five or six channels. For an N-channel convolution reverb to be feasible it was essential to develop an N-channel impulse response modeler as well: Enter DSpatial Physical Modeling rendering engine.
5 - Outstanding sound quality
With modeled IRs there´s no need to use microphones record and loudspeakers to excite the room.
To create a new space IR with DSpatial Reality you don´t need microphones, loudspeakers, pseudorandom sequences, shots or sine sweeps. Virtually zero coloration and zero distortion is now possible.
6 - Maximum dynamics
7 - Full downmix compatibility
With DSpatial Reality downmixing to any multichannel format, stereo or even mono, without comb filtering, phasing or any other unwanted artifact can be achieved. However, because of DSpatial’s multiformat capability, downmixing is not needed. Should it ever be needed the mix will be downmix proof.
8 - Full control
This exclusive feature also provides the foundation to create the complex early reflection patterns needed to realise DSpatial’s ultra-realistic binaural spatial simulation.
9 - Outdoors
Noise and dynamics are the two big obstacles. However, for our IR renderer, outdoors are incredibly easy to emulate with a 120 dB dynamic range and virtually no noise.
More than 50 outdoor spaces are provided featuring outdoor spaces such as cities, mountains, valleys, forests, streets, tennis courts; the sky’s the limit.
10 - New acoustic worlds beyond physical limits.
By exceeding the limits of physics it is also able to create non existing or unreal acoustic spaces. These are completely new sonic worlds impossible to capture with microphone recording techniques, thereby converting DSpatial into a true creator of new acoustic worlds.
