Balance Mastering has released Teufelsberg Reverb, the first plugin of a new range of audio tools from the online mastering service. The “zero-latency” plugin is based on a set of convolution impulse responses captured at Teufelsberg, the location of a former NSA listening tower. Prior to the fall of the Berlin wall, American and British military used these towers to intercept and process Soviet and Eastern Bloc communications as part of the ECHELON intelligence gathering network.
It’s been two years since Balance Mastering recorded and released the Teufelsberg impulse response set, their most popular download, so it was fitting for the first plugin in the Balance Audio Tools range to be this one. Using Teufelsberg Reverb is straightforward: Call up one of the 6 different impulses and set the levels accordingly. See? Being a spy is totally easy.
Balance Mastering Teufelsberg Reverb is available now for free! It requires and AU or VST plugin host. The plugin may be based on long convolution samples, but each version weighs in at a slender 7 MB.
