Exponential Audio R2

Classic character reverbs for music

R2 introduces a lush, colorful stereo reverb algorithm to Exponential Audio’s familiar design. Use the chorus and gate effects to color and shape your reverb signal to suit any music project. From swirling orchestral chambers to minimal, clean room reflections, R2 is your go-to plug-in for designing completely unique, musical spaces.


Highlights

Rich, character-filled reflections bring unique color to your music

Your music production deserves a reverb tone as unique as the music itself. R2 employs a reverb algorithm designed to color and compliment stereo music productions, making the reflections themselves a musical element. With a comprehensive and precise control set, R2 has everything you need to put the final polish on your next music project, no matter the genre.

Creative freedom over distinct reverb tone

Give your reverb some character
R2’s rich, musical reverb algorithm introduces more movement to the reverb tail, producing unique, expressive reflections like chorused guitar textures, dark rooms, vibrant vocal halls, and more.

Get creative with modulation and dynamics effects
Use the Chorus module in R2 to create different textural effects, or the input-driven Gate to dictate exactly where and when your reverb is most prominent.

Spatial reflections you’ve never heard before
R2’s preset bank blends classic plate, room, chamber, and hall reflections with tail modulations to create exciting, dimension expanding spatial effects.
