Nomad Factory have announced the release of 80s Spaces v2, bringing some major improvements to their flagship reverb plug-in initially developed in a collaboration with plug-in distributers Plugivery and musician Sabino Cannone aka MoReVoX.
The plug-in’s GUI is divided into four sections; a Reverb section offers Pre Delay, Attack, Decay and Gate parameters, whilst an Effect section directly below provides Lo and Hi Cut filters (each with 6, 12 and 24 dB/octave settings) along with Chorus and Width controls which allow users to introduce a chorusing effect and manipulate the overall stereo width respectively.
Input and Output level controls are contained within a Mix section, and are joined by a Mix control which offers a blend control for the dry and wet signals. Lastly, a display on the left side of the GUI provides a visual indication of current settings as well as displaying a level meter.
This new version increases the reverb model count from five to 12, and adds 80 convolution impulse responses, bringing the total count to 250. The number of factory presets has grown from 400 to 510, and the plug-in’s Effect section has also gained a new Colour option along with a Tilt EQ function. The Reverb section has also been updated with the addition of a new Gate mode.
The plug-in is supported on PCs running Windows 7 and above, or Apple computers running macOS X 10.9 and above, and is available in the AAX, AU, VST and VST3 formats. This latest update also brings with it native support for Apple’s M1 processors.
