Space Designer density envelope controls in Final Cut Pro
The Space Designer effect’s density envelope allows you to control the density of the synthesized impulse response over time. You can adjust the density envelope numerically in the parameter bar, and you can edit the Init Level, Ramp Time, and End Level parameters using the techniques described in Edit Space Designer envelopes in Final Cut Pro.
Note: The density envelope is available only in Synthesized IR mode.
For information about adding the Space Designer effect to a clip and showing the effect’s controls, see Add Logic effects to clips in Final Cut Pro.
Init Level field: Set the initial density (the average number of reflections in a given period of time) of the reverb. Lowering the density levels results in audible reflection patterns and discrete echoes.
Ramp Time field: Adjust the length of time elapsed between the Initial and End Density levels.
End Level field: Set the density of the reverb tail. If you select an End Level value that is too low, the reverb tail will sound grainy. You may also find that the stereo spectrum is affected by lower values.
Reflection Shape slider: Determine the steepness (shape) of the early reflection clusters as they bounce off the walls, ceiling, and furnishings of the virtual space. Small values result in clusters with a sharp contour, and large values result in an exponential slope and a smoother sound. This is handy when re-creating rooms constructed of different materials. Reflection Shape, in conjunction with suitable settings for the envelopes, density, and early reflection, can help you create rooms of almost any shape and material.
