Time Structure Settings

(35) Early shape

Governs the amplitude rise or fall of early reflections. The default setting of 0.5 corresponds to early reflections all having the same level. This mimics an acoustical space where reflective surfaces are all located at roughly the same distance to the listener.
Below 0.5 early reflections decay with time, above 0.5 they rise with time. Early reflections of decreasing level would be typical of a space where most of the reflective surfaces are grouped at a range closest to the listener.

(36) Early Min

Early reflections minimum time, i.e. the time at which the early reflections start to appear, in milliseconds. This is the analogous of the ubiquitous “pre-delay” setting found on most reverberation processors. It represent the time between the direct sound and the first early reflection.

(37) Early Max

Early reflections maximum time, i.e. the time at which these cease to appear.

(38) Early Distribution

Early reflections distribution. Determines the way early reflections are scattered in time, inside the Early Min. / Early Max. interval. The default setting of 0.5 corresponds to regularly spaced reflections, above these are more grouped towards the Early Max. value, and vice-versa.

(39) Cluster Min

Cluster minimum time. See Early Min.

Please keep in mind the cluster is fed with the input of the early reflections processor section, as is shown accordingly on the display.

(40) Cluster Max

Cluster maximum time. See Early Max.

(41) Cluster Distribution

Cluster distribution. See Early Distribution.
