Decent VST Reverb Plugin Wanted
      #988653 - 21/05/12 10:21 AM
HI All

Can anyone recommend something.

Free would be good but reasonable price is ok as well.

It's for guitar use only.

Thanks

Alan

The Waves Renaissance reverb is very good at any price, but it's now just $64 if you're in Canada or the USA.

For free I would suggest Bootsy's Epicverb. I also find Silverspike's Room Machine very useful when you want shorter ambiences to liven up drums.

I highly recommend checking out Valhalladsp.
Ubermod, room and shimmer are all different but excellent you can d/l demo and see if one suits you they are about £30 each though.

I've just bought spaces from EW which I'm really impressed with, there are pretty much zero options for tweaking but the preset verbs sound lovely very lush and great for the cinematic sound as there are lots of big sound stages and concert halls.

What DAW are you using? Most have a decent reverb plugin bundled. A good starting point would be to use that as a starting point. Let us know what you already have, and more importantly, what it is about it that you feel doesn't meet your needs.

Thanks for the replies.

DAW is Sonar X1 and the reverbs always sound tinny and metallic.

I really should get a Lexicon,but being computer based,and everything
I use is a Plugin,I wanted something as smooth as a Lexicon.

Maybe I want to much.

Alan

TC Electronic was giving away a reverb plugin based on the M2000. It's not available from TC Electronic anymore, and I'm not sure of the legality of this, but since it was free, maybe it is okay to pass it on without violating any laws? I don't have a copy of this myself, since it was a 3 day offer only and I missed it.

If verbs are always sounding metallic on your Sonar, then somthing is possibly set incorrectly, because the engine and build on that one is nearly identical to many others. In fact, it been shown that most DAW are practically the same for (set flat) sound. People are always saying they prefer the 'sound' of one over another, but they don't really have a 'sound.' Perceptions of differences are coming from some other factor(s).

No one mentioned Ambience -- love it, good on guitar, too. How about Elottronix, and then you can sound all loopy guitar, just like Robert Fripp? The AntressModern series has some interesting offerings; let's see, ModernFlashverb, ModernSpacer I think. Then there are the multi-FX plugs, such as LUXONIX LX-1310. There's always the Kjaerhus Classic Reverb. I find that acceptable for guitar and many things, though not vocals or violins. Note also that some of the delays can be pulled back to a reverb or have some as a second feature. Okay, so, those are the free ones. Did you mention money?

DAWs may not have a 'sound', but reverbs absolutely do, and they are as much a matter of taste as cheese, whiskey or wine, so I'd be inclined to believe the OP rather than putting it down to incorrect settings.

I've never found a reverb I thought sounded completely natural (even convolution) but a few that are "good enough" for me are Reaper's free built-in ReaVerb (convolution), the Quantec Yardstick model for Reaktor, and BreVerb Lite.

The worst reverb I ever heard was the one built into Cubase VST 5 (the old one!), it was far worse even than my Yamaha R100 hardware reverb.
