Fabrik R for PowerCore - 4 TC Electronic Reverbs In One
Fabrik R combines four new TC algorithms in one single plug-in. Thanks to the the Meta Intuitive Navigation Technology (MINT™) it is a breeze to find the sound you're hearing inside your head. If you want to apply a "live" vibe to your vocals and instruments, use the Live Reverb.
For vocals that need an even "larger" quality, choose the Hall Reverb. For that sound of the past as well as for drums and percussion, apply the Plate Reverb. If you're working with guitars try the Club Reverb, which also works great with vocals.
Within each reverb you'll find it very easy to adjust any setting to your own taste. You won't waste time with nitty-gritty preset adjustments - all you really have to worry about, is using your ears.
The Fabrik of PowerCore
We've integrated a simple yet highly effective and intuitive approach to working with audio, and the result is a UI that you'll be operating in a jiffy. Often people think that if you want to create professional results the process has to be tedious and complex - we don't agree.
The Fabrik plug-ins introduce a new way of working with audio, and they build on proven and award-winning TC technology, ensuring the highest level of audio quality.
MINT™ - the Meta Intuitive Navigation Technology
But that's not all, you get instant gratification when you work with MINT™ based tools. What this means is that whenever you alter a parameter, you will instantly hear the difference. You've probably tried working with a plug-in where you end up spending a lot of time tweaking and adjusting parameters with no noticeable effect? Stop wasting your time and get instant gratification with MINT™.
To make things real easy we've made a UI design that just makes life easier. When you choose an object in the UI, the background will automatically change, bringing all relevant information and possibilities into your immediate reach. Please look at the animated gif which will give you a rough idea about how the MINT™ designed UI will make life a whole lot easier for you.
By now you should have a pretty good understanding about what we're trying to achieve with MINT™. If not, we think you should give it a try and experience MINT™ for yourself. We're sure you'll be quite surprised to learn that it only takes a few simple controls to work intuitively and professionally with audio. And most importantly, we are convinced that you'll start to listen more closely to your audio. Don't forget that what really matters is what you hear - let your ears back into your audio!
If you go to the Algorithm page you can choose between four different algorithms, which are tantamount to the four different reverbs in the Fabrik R plug-in. In other words, here you can choose which reverb you want to use.
You know how live recorded audio sources sometimes have a lot of background noise? Well, quite often what you need is a brighter grainier reverb for that type of audio material, and the Live reverb is perfect for that job. For excellence try adjusting it to medium to long decay times and listen to the result. But the Live reverb will also work splendidly with vocals or instruments that need a clear and to the point reverb. Try it on different material and you'll be surprised about the results.
Often you're conscious about preserving the natural characteristics of your source material, and reluctant to apply to "large" reverbs. Don't worry, the Hall reverb will preserve your audio and add a large hall effect giving you lots of natural sounding "space". For most vocal material this reverb is superior to many other reverbs and you can benefit greatly by using it for various studio applications.
Welcome back in time! In the old days reverberating springs or large metallic plates was used to create a reverb effect. The Plate reverb emulates the era before digital processing was invented and has the sound of "springs and plates". If you're working with a recording of percussive instruments, it will often call for a diffuse, bright and light reverb, and the Plate is just perfect for the job.
This reverb is exactly what the doctor ordered if you want to put extra focus on the guitar or the vocals. It emulates a medium sized club, giving a broad yet intimate feel to your audio material. If you've got a recorded guitar that cries out for reverb, but you don't want the "stadium rock" sound, the Club reverb will do the trick, well, that goes for vocals and horns too.
Here you can control the amount of delay and predelay you want to apply to your reverb. If you're in favor of a tasty delay slightly spiced up with just an ounce of predelay, navigate the XY grid accordingly.
Tip: sometimes it helps closing your eyes and just listening as you "feel" your way through your adjustments.
When going into the Modulation area, you are about to alter the depth and the rate of the modulation. For some tasks it might be appropriate to apply quite a bit of depth and at other times less, deepening the rate of the modulation instead.
Tip: experiment, listen and learn. You'll be surprised about the results you can achieve if you just have "fun".
Here we have it, the holy grail of reverb…well maybe not quite, but knowing how to control the relationship between LoColor, HiFactor and HiColor is by some coined as "mastering the sound of the reverb". Through the XYZ triangle you have all the possibilities to create the "sound" you want.
Tip: to really get superior results, we sometimes have to "forget" what we know, and just listen. If you're in a creative standstill, try a new approach that you might "think" won't work - it will open your ears to new ways of working with audio.
Dry source material, early reflections, reverb. Here you have the choice to blend the three as you want, setting their relationship through the XYZ grid. For that somewhat neutral sound set the dry parameter higher, if your source calls upon a lusher ambience, tweak up the reverb. You can define the location of the source by adjusting the early reflections. Basically speaking, a source reverb is capable of generating multiple, complex early reflection patterns, and what this does, is that it kind of let's you mold a 3D space onto your source material.
Tip: every now and again we mix something to absolute perfection. It happens when you use your intuition and you actually listen to what you're doing. Try it, it works.
