The Smartelectronix Anechoic Room Simulator is a Windows only VST reverb plug-in. I haven't had the capability to use this for a few years as I'm no longer running the Windows based Cubase system I was running when I was running this. The plug-in is easily downloadable straight from Smartelectronix's website and should only take a few minutes to get it installed. Using the plug-in couldn't be any easier! There's only a large knob for setting the size of the room you'd like to simulate. That's literally everything there is to it, so all users will be able to use this easily regardless of experience. I doubt there's a manual for this.
While I'm now running Pro Tools 9 on a Mac, while I was running the Smartelectronix Anechoic Room Simulator it was on my old system which was Cubase SX on a HP lap top. The computer was a Hewlett Packard Pavilion dv8000 with 2 GB of RAM and a 3.0 Ghz processor. I never really had too many problems running this that I can remember, and I'd seriously be surprised if any users out there were having problems with it.
If you have a compatible system, meaning a Windows OS and a DAW that can run VST plug-ins, you may as well go ahead and try the Smartelectronix Anechoic Room Simulator for yourself. It's pretty effective for a free plug-in, but of course there's not much control because it's only got the one parameter. This also does make it super easy to use and is nice to have for getting really quick room sounds. Too bad it's not available for more platforms or I would probably still have it. It's free so for those who can there's really no reason not to try it and take advantage of this...
