EMT® 250 Classic Electronic Reverb
Iconic lever-driven digital reverb and modulation effects unit.

Still regarded as one of the best-sounding reverb units ever made, the EMT 250 continues to leave an immeasurable mark on record-making history in the hands of studio legends like George Massenburg, Bruce Swedien, Daniel Lanois, Brian Eno, and Allen Sides.

UAD Demo Video
Featuring the EMT 250 Classic Electronic Reverberator plug-in
Used on Countless Classics
The EMT 250’s distinctive clear and open reverb sound has appeared on countless records, including Prince & The Revolution’s Purple Rain, Elvis Costello’s Spike, and modern classics like The Red Hot Chili Pepper’s Stadium Arcadium.
Exclusively endorsed by EMT Studiotechnik
Designed in conjunction with EMT 250 designer Dr. Barry Blesser, the UAD plug-in version uses the same algorithm found in the original, extremely rare, hardware. The EMT 250 plug-in was modeled from Allen Sides’ “golden unit” EMT 250 that resides at the legendary Ocean Way Recording.
Added Versatility with New Features
The EMT 250 plug-in goes far beyond the original hardware, adding modern, workflow enhancing features like Dry/Wet Mix, Wet Solo, and Hard bypass. With these useful additions, the EMT 250 plug-in is even more powerful than the iconic hardware.
“The EMT 250 works great on snares. Keep it short and tight to add some dimension, or use the four-second range with full pre-delay for ballad-type songs.”
– Joe Chiccarelli (Jason Mraz, Beck, The Strokes, Morrissey)
“Now I have UAD on everything, and I'm using the EMT 140 and the EMT 250 as effects – It's so much easier.”
– Ryan Hewitt (Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Avett Brothers)
“Forget any other plate emulation, the UAD EMT 250 could actually be the real thing. Deep, wide, and full of personality.”
– Rik Simpson (Coldplay, Portishead, Jay Z)
“The EMT 250 plug-in is amazing. It’s all over Norah Jones' record. I used it on every song, it's that good.”
– Jacquire King (James Bay, Kings of Leon, Tom Waits)
“I’m a really big fan of the UAD EMT 250. It’s so faithful to the original unit.”
– Just Blaze (Jay Z, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West)
“I use the EMT 250 because it has such a specific sound, and the UAD plug-in really does capture it.”
– Andrew Scheps (Adele, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Duke Spirit)
“I’m particularly happy with the EMT 250 Reverb emulation. It’s spot on.”
– Glenn Rosenstein (Ziggy Marley, U2)
It's great. Buy it. I am forced to write more, as the text length I wrote was too short. I repeat: it's great. Buy it.続きを読む
Sheer beauty, like a girlfriend you cannot live without!
This along with the EMT 140 is out of this world! Enjoy them both for different reasons, but the 250 has the character I like most and also a touch brighter and cuts through the mix the way...続きを読む
...nicht übel...hat was ... was nostalgisches. Könnte mehr Presets vertragen !!!続きを読む
One of the best sounding plug-ins I have heard let alone used. Excellent on most all Vocals and Acoustic Instruments, flawless!続きを読む
Nice multi FX
The reverb part of the plug is really special. A very "light" kind of sound that have the ability to become almost unoticeable in the mix. So if you want to apply a lot of reverb...続きを読む
fantastic reverb and more
This ended up being my go to UAD reverb. It is not so much a dreamy reverb as it is a clean reverb that helps ground the source to the mix. The other FX are also wonderful.続きを読む

The reverb part of the plug is really special. A very "light" kind of sound that have the ability to become almost unoticeable in the mix. So if you want to apply a lot of reverb on a source without muddying your mix this unit really is a must.
As the EMT 140 this unit is very easy to use. 4 parameters only but a lot of different results.
The chorus part is really nice too. It can be very large and rich while supporting a mono reduction without sounding weak and phasy.
The echo/delay part is nothing special.
The space part doesn't compete against the Eventide Black Hole... but this is not an everyday FX.
The reverb only would get 5 stars from me !

Wow ,,,,What a slick verb. I have the 224 which is way the deal! But!!!! when I add this puppy with it I get some very nice lush verb's. It's little bit of a tric to get it figured out as far as using it, so use the presets to get started and tweek it from there. By starting with the presets you also learn how it's being set up for the different verb and chorus settings stored. I really am hung up on it, I spent the better part of all nite last week playin with it. I got into it way deep on my BV trac's using the chorus side and it blew my mind right outta my head. Just a touch of it here and there made the tracs sit right down in the mix. Reminded me of the concrete delay room at Studio In The Country a studio Katrina killed. Git it.
My new go-to reverb!
Thanks for 12 years of fabulous plugs UA!!

Great Digital Reverb!
The EMT 250 is worth every penny. Not only does it sound beautiful as a Reverb unit, but it also comes packed with 4 extra FX (and they are all great!). The Chorus is so amazing and works wonderfully on background vocals and electric guitars. But the Reverb is definitely my favorite. It's so lush, yet it doesn't muddy up your tracks. So good! I personally liked it better than all the other UAD offerings, YMMV.
WARNING: Be careful when you demo this thing, you may end up wanting it :P.
Great emulation once again from Universal Audio ! Im using a quad apollo at the minute which is complimented by the 4-710D.
Thinking about the Ampex and Studer plugins next (maybe the studer first though)
I`ve been working with the real EMT 250 in the early 80`s.
The PlugIn sounds and behaves just like the real thing.
Thanks for the brilliant work you do at UA.
it makes my work so much easier!
Chorus!!! I bought this for the chorus effect alone - makes things nice and upfront in the mix, beautiful
Oh and the reverb isnt bad either ;) very smooth...
The Bollix! Love it top toy! you know you want one!
The EMT 250 is warm and beautiful sounding. I had a client tell me what ever I just did made the lead vocal sound warmer. It was the UAD EMT 250 on chorus and reverb. In the sea of modern reverb plugins -there is nothing that sounds so big, wide and, warm. It is now at the top of my go to list. 1976 was truly a great year! -Angelo Jannotti guitarist-engineer-producer.
An amazing natural sounding reverb with great control of length and size. Most reverb plug-ins need a low pass filter at around 5kzhz. This reverb's top end frequencies sound natural without the aliasing and distortion of those other plug-ins. The controls are a little confusing at first so you must reference the manual with this plug. Once you master how the EMT 250 works it will be a strong weapon in your arsenal.
Easily THE most lovely reverb I have ever heard, and that's coming from someone that owns the $1900 Lexicon PCM Native reverbs. The UAD EMT 250 sounds extremely smooth and airy, in part thanks to the way it actually cuts out bass from the input signal so that the reverb never muddies the low end. Its smoothness makes this the vocal reverb to rule them all. It also offers several different effect-modes which adds value (such as echo, phaser, etc). It's a reverb that you really should own, no matter if you also use other high-end products like AltiVerb or Lexicon Native. Combine it with the EMT 140 Plate reverb and you have an unbeatable combination for all your reverb needs.
This reverb is awesome!! You add a touch of this to your recording and make it sound like you're at a jazz night club at 2am. There is nothing else like this piece! When I'm going for something intimate, or just trying to add that extra bit of flavour that makes you feel like you're right there this piece is a must have!
I demoed the plug and all I can say is that it is the most amazing reverb I heard in the box. Only thing due to the fact of global crises I do not have so much cash anymore as before the crises.... before I lost some customers I would have bought this thing without any doubt the day it came out.
Well done hopefully there comes a lexicon reverb by uad soon.
Because the new Lexcicon native series is out of price range for small budget digital producer.
Reverbs... a good way to go.
This one is special not for long reverberation, but from short to middle reverb, and it's a great sounding one!
Also including some other nice effects. Sure I can't compare it with the real unit (not a professional guy) but to
my ears is very good sounding, clean and useful for many sources.
A little too expensive.. so I wait for a good coupon to come :) :) UA; Great Job!
A very good sounding Guitar/Bass; Amplifier/Cabinet new plug-in!
I know it's not easy to have a real superb emulation...but maybe
UAD's people could reach a goal!
Que dire... fabuleux.
Un autre esprit, un autre monde et une bonne partie de mes reverbs matérielles sont à vendre.
Un must have.
