Microphones and motion
As well as providing possibly the most versatile rotary speaker model we’ve ever seen, EARevolve also lets you get hands-on with the microphones picking it up, alter the size of the speaker as a whole, and throw it around within a virtual room.
The speaker is scalable from a tiny 1mm to a surreal 20m in diameter, as an absolute value or a percentage of the (square) Room Size, which ranges from 1-20m on all four sides, as represented by the main display. The Room emulation is an operationally straightforward reverb algorithm, offering control of Early Reflection amount and the degree to which the distance of the speaker from the mics reduces volume.
The two mics (Left or Mid and Right or Side) are highly configurable, with adjustable parameters including horizontal spacing, angles, front and rear response patterns, and directivity (omnidirectional to tightly focused).
The speaker can be moved manually within the room by dragging it around, or rotated automatically along the circular or elliptical path defined using the Position section’s X/Y Depth and Center knobs, at the speed set by the Rate knob (up to 400rpm/6.67Hz). All of this is visualised perfectly in the display, along with the mic patterns.
