Ocean Way Studios
Ocean Way Studios
Excellent Room Sim
Diggin it for drums and guitar. Opens them up.
Finally a reverb software that helps me get a realistic room sound. Just mind blowing to use after years of using "regular" reverb plugins.
Stunning Room Sounds
The best ambience plugin I've heard. I bought UAD hardware on the recommendation of a friend who told me to get it for this plugin alone. It transforms any sampled virtual instrument sound source into something organic and natural. Insanely useful if you record in a less-than perfect studio situation. This plugin is transformative for your sounds.
You are now simultaneously inside and outside of the box.
I pair this with my Ruby pedal, and it sounds like I’m micing an amp in the next room. Except the next room is the best recording studio in the world. Filled with microphones, I could never afford.
This is exactly what I was looking for, thanks UA!!
My New Vocal Secret Sauce
Adds that extra dimension to vocals. A new must have in every mix ✨
One of a kind sound with insane DSP load
I bought this because I demoed it in an empty project. That was a mistake. The sound is remarkable and I honestly have never heard a plugin resemble this one- not even the other UAD reverbs. However, when I finally started using it, it started overloading my cores, even when my DSP was not near capacity. I wrote UA and they were extremely informative and helpful. But, ultimately, they described to me that the reverb needs to exist on a single core. So, if you're already working with multiple plugins that are spread across different cores, the OWS plugin won't have any room on any one core and overload everything. That's a pain. I wish I had demoed it in a real life session before buying it. To not end on a negative note- it really is incredible sounding. Just be aware that you need to put this into your session as early as possible or else you might be locked out of using it.
Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren, good Plugin
Depth of room effects without exaggerated resonances.
I have achieved good results in the Drums Room (even simulating a "fake Room" through the overheads, when necessary). In effect, this makes the effects less plastic, making the reverberations more natural. Also, I imagine the tool is very useful on Strings in general.
Great plugin but REALLY needs an update!
The GUI of this plugin reminds me of early 2000s Waves products. The plugin is very slow to respond and uses WAY TOO much DSP. A great plugin that we all love in great need of an update PLEASE.
If you record at home like I do...
...you're probably sitting at a desk close-micing instruments to get the best signal-to-noise ratio. This plug-in is the best way to move tracks back into a beautiful acoustic space. Awesome on percussion, background vocals, strings.
Room molto realistica
Lo uso quasi esclusivamente in re-mic, sono finalmente riuscito a non rimpiangere altiverb per le room di batteria, ma è molto bello anche per le chitarre elettriche, difficilmente sono riuscito a creare un ambiente realistico come con questo plug!
Cool for guitars voice and synths
Love to set my guitarrecordings apart from the rest of the mix. Beautiful.
Now THIS is a great plugin. More of a space creator than a reverb, although it does add 'Verb in a real world sense.
I just used this on a pair of drum room mics and (Room B) in re-mic mode and it gave an amazing sense of space.
Then I smashed it with an 1176 in all-buttons-in "British Mode" and raised the fader to taste. Added a lot of energy and excitement to the drum track.
Really looking forward to using this more on other instruments really soon!
Just try it...
I place my value in plugins strictly on a need them or not basis. I ran the demo and after using it on just one record I purchased. There is not a single plug-in out there can do what Ocean Way does. Get that plush ambiance from any source in a zip. These type of plug-ins really stand the test of time. Money well spent.
Perfect for drums
Best for sounding my drums huge in my home studio !
Adds depth and a realness i couldn't get from reverbs. puts my tracks in a great sounding room , with a great engineer setting everything up perfectly. U can also switch back and forth between several expensive microphone emulations. great plug in.
Haven't found another plugin that does the Remic feature. Insanely cool and useful for small home studios.
A unique one of a kind plugin that works on everything.
I'm sure it's been said before. The Ocean Way Studio plugin is truly a one of a kind deal. From ambient reverb, mic placement, room sound and other things I have yet to try. Who thought of making a plugin like this? Great for vocals, instruments, everything!!
Definitly gives a realistic ambiance to your recording
Didn't have the time to plunge into all the settings yet, but just with the preset the magic is there : my flat tracks sounds like projected in a real room and gain 3D. It reminds me the kind of recording you had in the 60/70's, very lively and warm, when you hear the room, not just the instrument.
