I am a recent convert to S1 from Logic. I am a big fan of Altiverb and have used it exclusively with great success on my mixes. I have heard good things about S1's (edit) Open Air & Room Reverb. I will definitely check it out. Anyone who has used both Altiverb and S1 reverbs have any comments or comparisons they can share?

I searched the forum and there are several posts on Altiverb but I couldn't find any comparisons to (edit) Open Air or Room Reverb.

Thanks.

Any reason you don't mention Open Air? It's included in s1pro, and is waaaay better than room reverb. Also accepts 3rd party impulse responses.

Nope. I am still just getting familiar with S1 Pro. I will check out a Open Air. The fact that it accepts 3rd party IRs is great as I have quite a few of them. Do you know if it accepts Altiverb IRs?

@Matt. How do you like your HS50M monitors. I just got mine recently, really happy with them.

I have not used Altiverb but I I have used other impulse reverbs and I find open air amazing.
I miss dual / true stereo and maybe a graphical eq but all in all it rocks.

I think they're great. Got a really good deal on them. I'm probaby going for the sub sometime this summer. They do lack some low end.

As far as Open Air accepting Altiverb ir's, I guess it would depend on the file format. If the Altiverb IR's are in a proprietary format then you may be out of luck.

Also good to note, there is an IR maker in Pro as well so you can make your own IR's.

Check out the Bricasti IR's from samplicity! They're free! Here's a link: http://www.samplicity.com/bricasti-m7-impulse-responses/

I've used these and they sound great. Open Air won't support the 4 channel IR's however.

I believe Audioease's Altiverb uses a proprietary format for their IR's. So that would not work with Open Air.

The IR's are simiply wave files so any IR that is in wav file format should work provided it is not 4 channels.
