RAUM is a new Native Instruments creative reverb plugin. Made to sculpt any space, RAUM can do everything from abstract echoes to the immersive ambiance in one swift move. It’s your space laboratory, your mix fixer, and your utility tool. Best of all: RAUM is free right now!
RAUM is part of Native Instruments’ KOMPLETE Instruments & Effects series. It is used as a plugin in your host and offers a unique take on reverb effects. Its three reverb algorithms are optimized for a vast wide range of reverb sounds, from tight ambiances to otherworldly soundscapes. Therefore, you can use RAUM as a subtle mixing tool but also for creative sound design.
The predelay section includes a carefully tuned feedback function that opens the plug-in up to uses as an echo, a resonator, and even a basic looper. Combined with the reverb algorithms, this allows you to explore spatial effects that go beyond the scope of common reverb plug-ins. Further adding to RAUM’s deep sound design capabilities, the Freeze function holds the sound content of the reverb infinitely, which turns the effect into a sound generator in its own right.
All controls are designed to provide smooth operation and a high level of playability, with a focus on sweet spots and meaningful interactions between parameters. For this reason, RAUM excels when used with heavy automation and as part of live performances. Its flexibility and playability allow you to explore reverb in a fun and exciting way.
Reverb is a classic audio effect that simulates the acoustic properties of differently sized spaces, like rooms and halls. It has traditionally been used to add a sense of space to dry studio recordings, but its creative uses have also defined and spawned musical genres: from the iconic sound of gated reverb used on snare drums in 80s pop music, to psychedelic effects in dub music, to the cosmic sound of ambient.
