    Altiverb and Logic's Space Designer

    Re: altiverb vs space designer

    i have space designer, but not altiverb - but i can tell you this. while space designer is really good i can't see it comparing to altiverb in terms of orchestral work and so forth. you should really just check out the demos on audioeases website.

    one thing that sets altiverb apart is the fact that you can place instruments in different areas, and it actually changed the reverb. you can somewhat simulate this in space designer by panning and adjusting the wet/dry, but it doesn't compare.

    don't get me wrong, space designer seems really nice (and maybe i'd like it better if i understood all the parameters), but from everything i've heard about altiverb, and from all the demos i've heard with it there is just nothing else that compares to it.

    I have Logic which includes Space Designer (you can't buy it separately). Altiverb is the one. It's on my purchase list for 2008.

    Also experiment with this interesting tool:

    The Demo versions of AM|Suite, VE|Suite and Variverb provide
    full functionality of the regular software packages.

    Have them both. They're both good.

    No experience at all with Space Designer, but Altiverb is probably the best purchase I've ever made.

    I use Altiverb for orchestral-type stuff, and Space Designer for other things, or if I need a cheap & cheerful reverb for something that doesn't need to sound super-realistic. For authenticity, Altiverb wins, hands-down. Just get it, and you'll soon be saying things like "it's the best purchase I ever made." GREAT tool.

    Re: altiverb vs space designer

    Yea, I'll concur with what's been said so far...

    Space Designer is great, especially considering it's part of the Logic program.

    But if you had to buy one over the other, you probably wouldn't look at Space Designer again, after hearing and working with Altverb...
