Paragon By Nugen Audio

Paragon is a pure convolution reverb with the versatility and power of a classic algorithmic reverb, providing you the sound of real spaces, now with modern tweak ability.

Via re-synthesis, Paragon offers full control of the decay, room size, and brightness of reverbs modeled on 3D recordings of real spaces – with no time-stretching, which means no artifacts – not to mention spectral analysis and precise EQ of the Impulse Responses themselves.

Typical Applications

  • Creating immersive reverb
  • Atmos-compatible convolution reverb
  • Manipulating IRs whilst maintaining true convolution characteristics
  • Authentic sounds of real spaces

Gone are the days of enormous IR libraries. Why have 30 recordings of different-sized churches, when you can meticulously adjust the characteristics of one church? The IR library isn’t too big, and it isn’t too small, it’s just right. Gone are the days of keeping an Impulse Response saved for every possible configuration of every possible space – with Paragon, all you need is a select few, which can be tweaked to create almost limitless combinations of spaces.

Perfect for surround applications including Dolby Atmos bed tracks, the reverb operates in up to 7.1.2 channels of audio.

Seamless tweakability

Gone are the days of keeping an Impulse Response saved for every possible configuration of every possible space – with Paragon, all you need is a select few, which can be tweaked to create almost limitless combinations of spaces.

Using state of the art technology developed alongside the University of York’s Dr. Jez Wells, 3D Impulse Responses are analyzed, decomposed and re-synthesized to create new authentic spaces.

Paragon’s IR panel also allows you to seamlessly tweak the frequency response or real spaces, by EQing the reverb model itself and altering the frequency-dependent decay rate.

The IR panel allows you to select an Impulse Response recording of a real space. From there, you can seamlessly tweak the frequency response, by EQing the reverb model itself and altering the frequency-dependent decay rate.

Real spaces reimagined

Paragon’s reverb decay and room size can be set significantly longer, larger, shorter and smaller than that of the original IR space, without introducing ugly artefacts as a result of stretching or removing samples. Unlike a traditional convolution reverb, Paragon does not use a static Impulse Response, and this wider scope allows you to transparently transform the sound of the space.

I/O panel

The I/O (input/output) panel provides trim and monitoring controls for all channels. Each set of channels also has controls for pre-delay, decay, cross-talk, and high/low pass filters.

For film & television

As the first 3D-compatible convolution reverb, Paragon is an ideal addition to your Dolby Atmos workflow – create a sense of space like never before.

Paragon’s adjustable crosstalk creates a sense of liveliness and interaction between channels, and allows you to produce surround reverb even from mono or stereo sources. Paragon offers the control and flexibility to determine how reverb from each channel interacts with the other channels, for example improving dialog intelligibility by removing reverb from the centre channel, but maintaining a sense of space and location by sending the dry centre channel audio to other reverb channels.

  • True convolution reverb
  • Dolby Atmos and surround-compatible
  • Individually configurable crosstalk per channel
  • Unique technology for re-synthesis of authentic IRs
  • HPF and LPF per channel
  • Spectral analysis
  • Switchable LFE
