CSR: Classik Studio Reverb

CSR (Classik Studio Reverb) includes a suite of four different reverb algorithms, each with its own interface and parameters:

  • Classik Hall / Room.
  • Classik Ambience.
  • Classik Plate.
  • Classik Inverse.

Easy and advanced mode
CSR-1 offers 2 operating modes for each of the four algorithms: Easy and Advanced. In Easy mode the user will be able to quickly edit the most important parameters in a very efficient way. In Advanced mode the user will have full access to more than 50 reverb parameters, including completely assignable Matrix Modulations and Macros. These two available editing modes make CSR-1 a perfect solution for a wide range of users from beginners to pros.

Advanced reverb editing
Matrix Modulation allows for any of the reverb parameters to be controlled by two internal LFOs and two internal Envelope generators. This offers the ability to create complex and articulated reverb effects that can go way beyond what is normally expected from a conventional reverb processor. All Matrix Modulations are completely user definable. Macros allow for simultaneous control (with a single slider) over many reverbs' parameters, with different depth and polarity for very smooth morphing between different reverberant spaces. Any parameter is automated via DAW's proprietary automation, with full and seamless integration allowing efficient and convenient use of today's most advanced control surfaces.

Additional CSR-1 features:

  • State of the art DSP based reverb algorithms.
  • Specific Algorithm-based Parameters list.
  • Highly customizable Modulation Matrix.
  • Smooth parameters morphing capabilities.
  • Adjustable input and output reverb width.
  • High quality reverb filtering.
  • Two internal LFOs.
  • Two internal Envelope generators.
  • Full automation.

I've been recording using various DAWs, VSTi and VSTe technologys in my virtual studio since 2005.

I've tested and auditioned most (and there are many!) all the free reverbs. If you can get by with the sonic limitations and minimal parameter control of the freebees, TC Electronics is my favorite in this category.

I also have higher quality reverbs... CSR (IK Multimedia Classic Studio Reverb), Eos and Adverb from Audio Damage, and Valhallaroom from ValhallaDSP.

In the early 70s, when I was working in the studio, we had all the analog accoutrements... Ampex and MCI mastering decks, Willi Studer desk and multitrack, Urei 1176LN comp/limiters and Little Dipper, Universal Audio LA2A, Dolby and Dbx noise reduction, Keypex gates, Eventide harmonizers... racks and racks of ancillary gear. The reverbs were positively killer... an EMT plate (240 IIRC) and an AKG spring units that cost thousands of dollars. Still in its' infancy, digital technology was cutting edge and the PC and internet had not yet been invented.

Today's technology is light years ahead of what we used back then. For me, only one VSTe reverb comes to mind as the closest to emulating the sound of those early studio EMT and AKG units and that is CSR from IK Multimedia. This is my goto reverb because the sound is extremely complex, effervescent, detailed and rich. I think that most would agree that the best reverbs meld more of a "feeling" to the signal and less of something that the listener actively "hears"... I'd simply call this musicality. I "hear" Eos, Adverb and Valhallaroom... I can only feel the lush plate, room, hall and inverse models from IK Multimedia! Hall, Plate and Room presets in CSR sound like actual places. By comparison, the other reverbs sound too "digital". I sincerely wish I knew how they do it! IK Multimedia has invented some brilliant in-house high-tech mojo using their own tools and techniques to develop incomparable models that are truly the best in the industry!

For my money, CSR Classic Studio Reverb from IK Multimedia is the best value if you want professional sounding reverb with some knockout presets, excellent parameter control and full automation! My jaw nearly hit the floor when I saw that today, a license for the full-blown download product is available for only $49.00... this is a no-brainier!!
