since they came out with the VST version of altiverb, it has become my favourite plug, not only in classical giga-context. The main advantage compared to acoustic mirror and the other pc convolution tools is: it\'s realtime! And they have an incredible library of IRs, which is constantly updated. And of course you can use all those great IRs from GOS, echochamber.ch and beamsonic... They have a demo version at audioease.com. If you\'re on a G4, it\'s a no-brainer, imho.
In fact, it is further having listen to the demo of the altiverb 2 that I asked for the opinion of users ( the beep is very disturbing...). Your answers confirm my first impression ! Thanks to all .
I recall a thread from sometime ago where it was suggested that it might be possible to use IRs for Altiverb in Acoustic Mirror. Aside from the legal issues possibly involved in this, is it technically possible? If so, how is it done, and is there any loss in quality to be expected?
And yes, I /am/ looking for an excuse to buy a Mac. Does Altiverb have any real advantages over Acoustic Mirror in terms of sound quality? (To me the realtime aspect is less of a concern.)
