Nugen Audio Paragon is a true convolution reverb effects plugin with the flexibility and control of a classic algorithmic reverb, giving you the sound of real spaces, now with unprecedented tweak ability. Via re-synthesis, Paragon offers full control of the decay, room size and brightness of reverbs modelled on 3D recordings of real spaces - with no time-stretching, which means no artefacts - not to mention spectral analysis and precise EQ of the Impulse Responses themselves.
Gone are the days of enormous IR libraries. Why have 30 recordings of different-sized churches, when you can meticulously adjust the characteristics of one church?
Perfect for surround applications including Dolby Atmos bed tracks, the reverb operates in up to 7.1.2 channels of audio.

The IR library isn’t too big, and it isn’t too small, it’s just right. Gone are the days of keeping an Impulse Response saved for every possible configuration of every possible space - with Paragon, all you need is a select few, which can be tweaked to create almost limitless combinations of spaces.
Using state of the art technology developed alongside the University of York’s Dr. Jez Wells, 3D Impulse Responses are analyzed, decomposed and re-synthesized to create new authentic spaces.
Paragon’s IR panel also allows you to seamlessly tweak the frequency response or real spaces, by EQing the reverb model itself and altering the frequency-dependent decay rate.
Real spaces reimagined
Paragon’s reverb decay and room size can be set significantly longer, larger, shorter and smaller than that of the original IR space, without introducing ugly artefacts as a result of stretching or removing samples. Unlike a traditional convolution reverb, Paragon does not use a static Impulse Response, and this wider scope allows you to transparently transform the sound of the space.
For film & television
As the first 3D-compatible convolution reverb, Paragon is an ideal addition to your Dolby Atmos workflow - create a sense of space like never before.
Paragon’s adjustable crosstalk creates a sense of liveliness and interaction between channels, and allows you to produce surround reverb even from mono or stereo sources. Paragon offers the control and flexibility to determine how reverb from each channel interacts with the other channels, for example improving dialog intelligibility by removing reverb from the centre channel, but maintaining a sense of space and location by sending the dry centre channel audio to other reverb channels.
- Creating immersive reverb
- Atmos-compatible convolution reverb
- Manipulating IRs whilst maintaining true convolution characteristics
- Authentic sounds of real spaces
"It was amazing how quickly Paragon gave me the sound I was looking for." - Jorel Corpus (Boyz II Men, Tyrese, Brandy)
"Paragon is a wicked plug-in!" - Alvin Wee (Kung Fu Panda, Kingsman, Eddie the Eagle)
"I personally like reverbs that have characters, and Paragon definitely has its own sonic personality" - Ruy Garcia (Midsommar, Wendy, Boardwalk Empire)
New update 1.1
Nugen Audio has released Paragon 1.1. This update includes 4 new impulse response models, including 3 outdoor models, designed to help you replicate the sound of real outdoor spaces from your studio.
Creating the sound of the outside can be a real challenge as the outside is rarely about reverb, it’s so much more about delay. Adding 4 new Impulse response models - Summer Forest, Snow Forest, Cave Mouth and Stone Chamber is great news for post-production mixers needs to create realistic outdoor dialogue tracks.
This update also includes an improved preset browser with tagging and ‘favourite’ functionality, together with improved stereo balancing.
