We ran a story on RaySpace being updated to version 2.1 back in February and now QuikQuak tell us that what they say is the world's only real-time impulse response designer has been updated to 2.3.
You can now export the current impulses to be used in convolution reverbs. Edit, listen, then quickly export impulses as full 32 bit, 5 channel reverb outputs. The high quality surround reverb can of course be enjoyed natively in RaySpace. With surrounding walls, source and listener positions updated while you listen. A stereo width controller has been added to further manipulate the reverb, allowing for tighter mono, or wide spacious stereo signals.
Metering levels for quiet passages has also been enhanced, for a more accurate and useful feedback. Update summary:
An Impulse Response exporter. Up to 5 channels exported in 32 bit IEEE float format WAV or RAW. Use RaySpace designs in convolution reverbs.
5 Channel surround sound, RaySpace now incorporates centre speaker arrangements in 5.1 setups.
Stereo Width control gives fine adjustments from a mono reverb to wide 'beyond' speaker position spreads.
More sensitive metering on all channels.
Free for all registered users since version 1
RaySpace main features:
Create fantastic surround reverbs using the completely unique engine -
Introducing the new DBT (Diffuse Bubble Tracing) system.
Draw walls of any angle, allowing complex room shapes.
Four band parametric equaliser, for complete control of output.
Ray scattering algorithms for adding randomisation to wall reflections,
giving roughness and character to the rooms.
Get a real grasp of the virtual space with the 3D ROOM VIEWER. Using
zoom and spin with the mouse - watch and listen to actual height adjustments.
Reverb updates almost instantly.
Export impulse response feature, so you can still use your designs in other reverb units.
RaySpace does NOT use convolution algorithms, it's a completely original design.
And unlike convolution, long reverb times use the same CPU as short ones,
allowing you to make huge spaces.
Stereo Width control gives fine adjustments from mono reverb, to 'beyond' speaker
Compact size. RaySpace does not need huge resource files to store the reverbs,
as they only take up a few kilobytes each.
