OC/DC - All the right notes in exactly the right places.
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.

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?

The Telenator wrote: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)
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.
