Free Software Friday is our regular Friday feature here at the dBs Music blog. We dig the depths of the music production and media webosphere and discover what downloadable plugin freebies are worth double clicking each week.
Inspired Acoustics is getting into the spirit of the season and has made their Inspirata Lite (usually $199) convolution reverb plugin free to download until January 31st, 2021.
Described by Inspired Acoustics as an 'immersive reverb workstation', Inspirata is a convolution reverb much like any other in most respects, though it does have some unique features that make it a real must-try.
As you'd expect, there's a selection of pre-recorded impulse responses from an array of real spaces from across the globe; from cathedrals and halls to small spaces like studios. Where Inspirata starts to diverge from traditional convolution reverbs is in its controls, which allows users to change the position of both the sound source and the listener in the simulated space.
One thing to note to anyone interested in downloading Inspirata Lite is the download size, which is a total of 9GB. Some other publications online have mentioned issues with download speed and file corruption, but we're hoping these are isolated incidents.
Inspirata Lite is free to download for both Windows and macOS (VST3/AU/AAX - 64-bit only) using the link below. In order to redeem the plugin, you have to register an account and download 'Inspired Acoustics Connect' where you can then download the plugin.
