NUGEN Audio Paragon ST Convolution Reverb
Surround film scoring-focussed reverb introduced into music market with mono/stereo edition; convolution with algorithmic-like control
Nugen Audio announces its newest reverb plug-in, Paragon ST – a mono/stereo-only version of its convolution reverb software. Ideal for music production applications, Paragon ST allows high-end producers to sculpt and fine-tune their reverb to the needs of the track, at a lower price point. In conjunction with the new release, Nugen has unveiled music-focused features that will be included in Paragon ST, as well as the surround version of Paragon. Included among these updates are controls for stereo width, modulation and mic distance, along with a pre-delay tempo lock, making it perfect for music and scoring projects of every kind.
“We are very excited to finally unveil Paragon ST,” says Paul Tapper, CEO, Nugen Audio. “After launching Paragon to the film and TV industry to great reception, we knew we had to build a solution for our friends in music production as well. This new, mono/stereo-only version will give producers access to a purity of sound found from our proprietary technology, which is based on the research of Dr. Jez Wells. Additionally, our newest software update means that Paragon and Paragon ST users, alike, will have access to an even wider range of creative tools, for everything from music singles to complete film scores.”
Like its groundbreaking predecessor, the Paragon ST convolution reverb offers the realism of authentic Impulse Responses (IR) alongside the tweak-ability of a classic algorithmic reverb. Additionally, Paragon and Paragon ST feature spectral analysis and precise IR EQ, and zero time-stretching, leading to no artifacts. Further, both reverbs provide unique technology for re-synthesis of authentic IRs and HPF and LPF per channel. Paragon and Paragon ST are ideal for recreating authentic sounds of real spaces and manipulating IRs while still maintaining true convolution characteristics.
