ADverb Updated...

by Chris Randall

Audio Damage ADverb, our "vintage digital" plate, has been updated to 1.1.0. This update includes 32/64-bit Windows VST and 32/64-bit OS X VST and AU. Any remaining vestiges of PPC support have been removed, so if you think you're getting the New Hotness for your old 'n' busted G4 tower, think again. Anyhow, hit the AD Store and you'll find the new ADverb in your account if you're already an owner. If not, I strongly suggest you buy it, because I'm of the considered opinion that the more you engage in commerce with the Audio Damage site, the more I'll like you, and I think we should put that theory to the test.

Kombinat Dva is next out the chute, then the 64-bit version of BS2, and so on and so forth...

I'm really happpy ADverb kept its UI. It feels 'special'

Yeah, that one is (in my opinion) my best 3D UI. It'd take an act of congress for me to change that one. It took _forever_ to make, and then 65 full rez renders that took about 2 hours each. After which I cut out each knob and button by hand 65 times and stitched them all together to make the filmstrips.

It is a lovely UI for sure :-)
What software did you use for the rendering?
I love the clean, user friendly look of the later UI.. PanStation, FilterStation, etc..
However I love the 3D UI's too. When you are emulating old gear.. I think the 3D interfaces suit that best...
The Adverb UI reeks of the late 80s.. DubStation is cool too.
Oh..where is the Ratshack Reverb reverb?

I used 3D Studio Max for all of our 3D UIs (Liquid, Fluid, Vapor, Kombinat, ADverb, Dubstation, the background of Ronin, etc.)

Ratshack Reverb got removed from the catalog, as it is so old, it needs a major overhaul to make it Lion compatible. It is from the same era as the first Dubstation release, and shares some of its code. Dubstation has been continually updated, as it is our second-best seller, but RR has suffered in the cheap seats, and needs a full tear-down. We can't, in good conscience, sell a product that we know doesn't work on one of our normally supported configurations.

Bummer about Ratshack...it's probably my favorite character delay. Here's to hoping it gets a major overhaul at some point. I think people may have been generally under the impression that it's an emulation of a crappy reverb, as opposed to a bad ass delay unit.

Regarding updates to the ever growing product line, I'll throw in another bump for putting full version info in your "about" pages. So much less confusing down the road, especially when minor updates come out.

I still cling to my version that is named Reverence. I love its sound and use it as my main 'verb.

Cling all you want. ;-) ADverb is exactly the same; it just has a different name. We haven't changed the DSP code at all since release.


Nov.02.2011 @ 11:20 AM
any changes for this update?

'about' still reads 2008. not sure if there was anything updated.

No changes at all. It's just 64-bit now.
