Experience Ultra-realistic Spaces
Looking for ultra-realistic spaces? Look no further. EastWest Spaces II places your instruments in the exact sonic environments you want them in. Unlike typical convolution reverbs, it doesn’t merely provide an impulse environment for your audio. Rather, it imparts the real-world projection qualities of specific instruments, so instruments and even orchestral sections project differently from one another. You’ll appreciate how instruments really “live” in the spaces, rather than simply having reverb applied. Spaces II includes all the reverbs from Spaces I, along with 353 new reverbs recorded in a wide range of environments. You also get an expanded collection of instrument-specific reverbs, a streamlined new interface, true stereo operation, true surround capabilities, and more.
Brimming with exciting new features
Produced by Doug Rogers and Nick Phoenix, Spaces II is brimming with exciting new features. Explore captivating new environments, with 353 brand new reverbs recorded in churches, concert halls, opera houses, catacombs, train stations, recording studios, and warehouses. Enjoy low CPU usage with the cleanest signal path possible, thanks to EastWest’s new convolution engine. A streamlined new interface ensures intuitive operation, while a new Decay Time Control feature gives you fine control over your sound. And like its predecessor, Spaces II supplies 24-bit true stereo operation and true surround capabilities.
372 instrument-specific reverbs
One of the EastWest Spaces II plug-in’s most unique features is its instrument-specific reverbs. These reverbs were created using an ATC speaker array to emulate the sound projection patterns of each instrument. To duplicate an orchestral hall, sounds were captured in the exact position an instrument would be on stage. For example, a french horn fires its sound backward, so its impulse was created by firing the sweep tones from the middle to left rear of the stage, backward and slightly towards the floor. The first violin section was recorded by firing speakers at an angle toward the ceiling, with a fifth speaker firing towards the floor to emulate the body of the violins. Choir, celeste, harp, and many other impulses were created using the same meticulous method. Spaces I limited this method of recording to its SoCal hall. Spaces II, on the other hand, uses a total of six venues, giving you a vast array of sounds to play with.
A vast array of acoustical environments
Spaces II takes advantage of the sound of a range of interesting acoustical environments. Impulses were captured in stunning concert venues like Abravanel Hall in Salt Lake City, Reynolds Hall in Las Vegas, and the War Memorial Opera House in San Francisco, as well as gorgeous-sounding churches like St. Patrick’s and St. Dominic’s, and unique-sounding locations like the catacombs in Los Angeles’ Union Station. These spaces are sure to inspire you and bring your compositions to life with unparalleled realism.
