Device Overview

Name/Version: PIASTRONE BY AVAL 1.0
Author: IsotonikStudios  

Piastrone is a Max4Live device for Ableton Live, a plate reverb dedicated to the italian composer Gino Marinuzzi Jr., who in 1963 defined with this term the reverb technique. It’s based on the famous Dattorro (1997) digital plate reverb design, which returns a dry and, at the same time, deep and spacious sound, with the possibility, through modulations, to obtain more metallic and spicy sound.


XY control panel: controls internal diffusing and filtering, centered it creates warm and
diffused signal, while to the sides it generates a sharp and bright sound. At the bottom
there are X and Y position values, mappable in order to make them move with external
LFOs or sequencers.
Material: controls the decay of the reverberation.
Size: changes the ‘plate size’ by expanding the delay lines.
DryWet: amount of dry or wet signal.
PreDelay: amount of delay before early reflection
Input Diffuse: enable/disable input diffusing, allowing to get softer transients when
Highpass Filter: the white curve, a HPF that filters the input signal before the
Lowpass Filter: the green curve, a LPF that filters the input signal before the
Down left arrow: opens a pup up menu where you can set the LFO mask of the diffusers,
from here you can change:
Rate: speeds up or stop the LFOs freq.
Depth: change the amount of modulation
Shape: dragging it you can change the Ifo shape, from a reverse saw to a ramp, a
triangle wave by default.

Just wanted to say, this is an excellent reverb - subtle and adjustable in a way that doesn't make it sound like other reverbs. Just nice across the board. Also, it's very low on CPU cycles. Well done!
