Audio Ease has been in touch to tell us that Altiverb 7 is now available for use on Windows. They say that this new version for Windows is 32 and 64 bits, AAX & VST
Altiverb 7 for Windows is fully backward compatible with Altiverb 6 and exchanges settings with Altiverb 7 on Mac.
A spokesperson told us, "Altiverb 7 is the industry standard convolution reverb plug-in for Mac OS X and Windows. It uses top quality samples of real spaces to create reverb, ranging from Sydney Opera House to the cockpit of a Jumbo Jet. Altiverb 7 is efficient on the cpu, offers many parameters to tweak reverb, is total recall automatable, and has 64 bit support. Every month Altiverb 7 users receive new impulse responses for free."
Pricing and Availability:
$1595... I don't think so!

Looks very good, and when it was only Mac I always hoped it would get to be for PC too. However a major sticking point for me would be the ilok key. This feels so much part of the dark ages, where a piece of hardware sucks at a USB port indefinitely just to say yes I really did buy this. There must be a better way of protecting it. If the brains behind it can instantaneously transform a click into an impulse response, presumably they could figure out something less intrusive. Otherwise there`s always Reverberate for £50, obviously not in the same league but great value and sound none the less.

I started using Altiverb way back on Mac OS9. But Audio Ease has since effectively priced themselves out of the market. There are other convolution reverbs that compete, use less CPU (some of them even come with certain DAWs). I cannot justify spending 1600 on a reverb plugin, I don't care how good it sounds...They could get away with it when they were the only game in town, but now it's a different story. I'll spend my money elsewhere.
