The Enhancement Feedback Time parameter is a sophisticated control for adjusting the decay length of the reflection cluster. Unlike the original hardware version, where this value was hardcoded, our plugin offers a dynamic control range from 0 to 100%, providing a versatile and precise adjustment capability.
This parameter is intricately linked with the Enhancement Room Size setting, with the two parameters working together to shape the spatial and temporal characteristics of the reflections. As the Enhancement Room Size is adjusted, particularly up to the setting of 10.3 (1000 m³), the Enhancement Feedback Time modulates the decay to be more or less subtle. On loudspeakers, the effect at these settings may be understated, adding a gentle depth and dimension to the sound. However, when listening on headphones, the same settings can produce a more pronounced and immersive effect, highlighting the versatility of this parameter in different listening environments.
When the Enhancement Room Size is set to 10.4 and beyond, the Enhancement Feedback Time takes on a more dramatic role. It allows for a significant control over the decay of the reflection cluster, especially in larger simulated room sizes. This functionality provides users with tight control over the decay characteristics, enabling them to tailor the enhancement effect precisely, regardless of the room size setting.
In practice, this means that even with larger room simulations, the reflections can be fine-tuned to decay at a rate that complements the mix, avoiding overly prolonged or muddy reverberations. This level of control is especially valuable in creating distinct spatial effects, from subtle ambiance enhancement to dramatic, echo-laden soundscapes.
The dynamic interplay between the Enhancement Feedback Time and Room Size settings makes this parameter a powerful tool in shaping the Enhance effect, offering both subtlety and dramatic impact in crafting the auditory experience.
