Following the shortest pre-order time in history, BLEASS released BLEASS reverb AUv3 AudioPlugin today. The descriptive name reveals its purpose, but not its full capabilities. They've added their own unique take on reverb with some additional features spread out in 3 stages of the signal path. The path ends with a ducking compressor that is a lot of fun to play around with. The app is $4 today, and will go up to $5 on the 18th.
BLEASS reverb AUv3 AudioPlugin iTunes Description:the BLEASS reverb is a unique sounding plugin effect bringing your music production and live performances towards new soundscapes!
The BLEASS reverb is composed of 3 different stages:
1/ A first stage modifies the input source by correcting the gain and setting up early reflections pre-delay in order to re-create distant walls.
This first stage also contains a filter to modify frequencies. Switch between two different filter types:
- the Low-Shelf filter can reduce or boost your basses.
- the High-Pass filter cuts the low part of the signal and creates a resonant peak on interesting frequencies.
2/ The second stage offers a unique-sounding reverb with size modulation and length controls. It also contains a high frequency damping control in order to re-create plate reverb effects, as well as a freeze toggle button for infinite sound soaring and exploration.
This reverb offers also an X/Y panel which applies a set of fine-tuned frequency shifter as well as a wave shaper in order to mutate your reverb space on the go!
3/ The third stage offers a duck effect made of a compressor side-chained on the dry input in order to bring clarity to heavy kicks and basses
Finally, a dry-wet controller offers control over the reverb level.
All these features are shown within the factory presets, and you can save your own presets which will automatically carry over across different host apps.
All variables are exposed as AU parameters in hosts which support automation.
BLEASS reverb can also be used as a standalone app using headphones and mic or an external sound card.

*** NOTE : this is an Audio Unit Effect Plugin (AUv3) which ideally requires a compatible host (such as AUM or Audiobus) or DAW (such as GarageBand or Cubasis) ***
The "video tutorials and demos" the iTunes description refers to are all videos for their other apps. The only video for the app is still this stream from The Sound Test Room. I'll post one here when it arrives.
Update: Here is a little preview from BLEASS so you can hear it in action!
