Fusion Field is very easy to use, and the main display shows the effects of the dampening and EQ in a plain natural way. The reverberation can be dampened in the upper and lower frequencies, allowing soft sibilance and a graceful, lifting air to the sound.
Having very few controls does not hinder Fusion Field's usefulness. The dial ranges have been sloped to give the best sensitivity in useful regions, and the whole unit can create short snappy rooms, or vast time-suspended spaces, and anything in between.
Why use this?
Removing the character of uneven early reflections and various room shapes leaves the sound pure, so it's able to hold the sound in time. Simply enhancing the sound image without obtrusive additional tones allows for more space in the mix.
Fusion Field gathers reflections immediately, smoothing out initial transients, then realistically diffuses the sound to the specified decay time. The interface has a logical layout, prompting fast editing with expected results.
Try the demo yourself and choose the "Fusion Field Full" preset, this gives the longest decay and no filtering. If you send a short sound through the plug-in you will hear the sound as though frozen in the air, and decay perfectly smoothly in about two minutes.
What really makes it different?
For high quality, it's incredibly light on the computer processing resources. It's subtle, but Fusion Field's unique algorithm creates a highly diffuse and different sound than all-pass filter feedback reverbs. Stereo channels interact very slightly for a realistic sound stage. It's very affordable - with free updates.
