Voxengo Pristine Space
Pristine Space is a native audio VST plugin which allows you to use convolution reverb impulses in your audio projects.
Pristine Space was mainly created for impulse reverb perfectionists: it does not implement various `combo' approaches which try to save CPU cycles by creating a synthetic reverb tail instead of performing a full convolution. Because such approaches in many cases give unsatisfactory results if you expect them to sound exactly like your original reverb impulse sounds, we have decided not to use them. Instead, we have optimized to the maximum both the efficiency of convolution processing and the plug-in's latency.
Pristine Space is a 8-channel convolution processor. Each channel is independent of the others, making it possible to use Pristine Space in various surround configurations. It also allows the user to apply a `true stereo' kind of processing, where each stereo channel uses its own reverb impulse (requiring 4 convolution channels in total). Sound designers and the like may find Pristine Space's serial convolution processing feature (which allows one to process the sound with several impulses in sequence) useful.
While Pristine Space does not offer various radical impulse transformation features, it still offers several very useful envelope-driven non-destructive impulse editing options, including volume, stereo width, stereo pan, low-pass and high-pass filtering, and a linear-phase equalization. You can also reverse, cut and time offset the loaded impulse file with ease, non-destructively.
By the way, Pristine Space can work with a latency as low as 64 samples (1.5 ms at 44.1kHz), making it possible to use it during tracking. Impulses Files for Pristine Space: This page of our web site offers you freely-downloadable impulse reverb files: Free Reverb Impulses.

Cyber Kitchen Sound Design Enterprise (C.K.S.D.E.) from Switzerland offers you the following impulse responses which you can use freely in your audio projects. These impulses come in 44.1kHz/16 bit resolution. You may get more impulses in much higher resolution from CKSDE.
- CKSDE Reverbs 1
- CKSDE Reverbs 2
- CKSDE Springs
- CKSDE Analog Delay 1
- CKSDE Analog Delay 2
(please do not redistribute these promotional CKSDE impulses on your own)
You may also evaluate the following 'effect' impulses presented by Virtuasonic: Synesthesia Impulses Don't forget to check our Impulse Modeler out. It allows you to create custom reverb impulses of the highest quality. Deconvolver is also an essential tool if you want to create your own real space, hardware or speaker impulses.

This audio plug-in can be loaded into any audio host application that conforms to the VST plugin specification.
This plug-in is compatible with Windows XP computers (2 GHz dual-core or faster processor with at least 1 GB of system RAM recommended). Note that this plug-in may not work correctly on the latest Windows versions that expose more than 2 GB of available memory to the host audio application. Otherwise it is suggested to run this plug-in by bridging (for example, by using jBridge). Also note that this plug-in may not work correctly with some 64-bit host audio applications via bridging.
