Even with the simple operation of “adding reverb” to a mix, Clearmountain has developed a highly personalized workflow for creating the distinctive sonic environments that make his mixes stand out.
Rather than rely on commonly available reverb effects, Bob has relied on physical rooms and chambers for realistic and unique reverb. Once convolution reverb technology allowed him to “capture” the characteristics of his favorite rooms as digital impulse response files, he was free to use all his favorite spaces no matter their location. With Clearmountain’s Spaces, you now have access to the very same impulse response room profiles used on countless hit mixes.
Equally important to achieving the signature Clearmountain sound is flexible input signal processing for shaping the sound before it hits the Spaces – three-band EQ, easy-to-use de-essing, and pre-delay.
The final stage of Bob’s spatial workflow is a technique that Apogee calls Composite Spaces – mixing and layering Spaces of different timbral characteristics and decay times for a result that’s utterly personalized.
Have you ever struggled when adding reverb to your mix? The Clearmountain’s Spaces presets built by Bob, deliver decades of mixing expertise to your fingertips letting you easily add polish, depth and atmosphere to all your tracks.
Clearmountain’s Spaces is available now on the Apogee website for $49. It requires macOS 10.12.6 or later, an AU, VST, or AAX plugin host, and a free Pace iLok account. A physical iLok USB dongle is not ncessary.
