PA1 is an Audio Unit plug-in that uses a physical model of a plate reverb based on advanced Modal synthesis. The dynamic control of physical parameters gives unique and creative reverberation.
How it works: We start from a mathematical description, the Kirchhoff plate equation, that gives the displacement in terms of size, thickness, and tension, as well as the properties of the chosen material (Young's modulus, density, and Poisson's ratio). Using this description, we calculate the modes of vibration for the system. From there, we perform a real-time integration to calculate the displacement of the plate given the input forcing term, and with the decay times across the 8 octave bands of the modes.
