New Gear Review: MoReVox/Overloud REmatrix

REmatrix_BoxREmatrix is a reverb plug-in that has five convolution reverbs with an included library of 250 IRs plus 400 preset combinations arranged in banks categorized by application in music mixing. The five IRs are: Hall, Room, Plate, Early and Special and appear on separate faders in the onboard mixer panel.

With REmatrix you have the ability to edit and mix each of these IR reverbs with control over their EQ, reverb length, pre-delay, stereo width as well as panoramic positioning in the mixer. The master section is for further processing by any or all its six of its stereo processor modules.

I first tried it as an insert processor on a stereo drum bus. Preset bank Smash Rooms is designed for this exact purpose and I liked the Loudness Room preset for the drum sound for a Pop track I was mixing. For Pop vocals, I went to the Voices bank; the Medium Fat preset sounded awesome when I brought up the Early IR fader running the FastDone customization.

So I’m a reverb/sonic explorer every time I open MoReVox/Overloud REmatrix, not only as a reverb, but also as a sound design tool to create totally unique reverbscapes and insert effects. It sells for $327 MSRP. Download at morevox.com/web/rematrix.php
