Leeds, UK (October 23, 2020) – Nugen Audio has introduced Paragon, a “3D-compatible” convolution reverb that offers users control of decay, room size and brightness modelling off of 3D recordings of real spaces. Paragon also features spectral analysis and EQ of the Impulse Responses (IR).

Paragon reverb operates in up to 7.1.2 channels of audio, making it appropriate for surround applications, including Dolby Atmos bed tracks. Further, it features individually configurable crosstalk per channel, unique technology for re-synthesis of authentic IRs, HPF and LPF per channel, and switchable LFE.

Studio Owner Harps on About Nugen

Using technology developed with the University of York’s Dr. Jez Wells, 3D Impulse Responses are analyzed, decomposed and re-synthesized to create new spaces, ultimately creating a small digital footprint for the IR library and making it possible to configure combinations of spaces with adjustments to the settings. The IR panel also enables users to make changes to the frequency response of real spaces by EQ’ing the reverb model and altering the frequency-dependent decay rate. Unlike traditional convolution reverb, Paragon does not use static IR.

Additionally, Paragon’s crosstalk feature allows users to produce surround reverb from mono or stereo sources. It also offers the control and flexibility to determine how reverb from each channel interacts with another, which can be useful for dialog intelligibility. In addition to its Atmos application, Nugen Audio’s Paragon reverb plug-in can create immersive reverb in mono, stereo and surround formats.

Paragon is available for $599 USD.
