The ultra-effective Baxandall-type Bass and Treble controls sculpt the timbre of the reverb, while the Low Cut Hz input filters and Pre Delay further season the reverb’s character.

No matter the source, Pure Plate Reverb gives you the rich analog dimension and depth of an old-school plate reverb system.

      Easy and simple to set up, just the perfect go to plate, and also gentle on DSP usage

      M. Postnov


      By far the best in its simplicity!

      Absolutely must have! Loved it’s incarnation inside the Ox Box and having the ability to use it in LOGIC makes my reverb itches complete forever. Pure 70s, lush, rich and expensive!

      Great plate!

      Simple to use and sounds great. A little heavy on DSP compared to other (native) plates.

      G. Polito

      Wealth of Reverb

      So much range it like a wave washing over you , from a shimmering sound to cave like echos.

      Pure Plate Reverb

      Great, easy and simple to use verb. Just like it is supposed to be.

      J. Aguirrezabalaga


      The real thing

      It sounds a lot like the real thing for me, and I like the fact that does not offer tons of options. If you love “that” plate sound there it is!

      Nice on vocals

      N. Degtyarev


      Pure Plate Reverb Great plugin

      Great plugin I use regularly, came complete with an audio interface! This is just a great plugin for working with vocals!

      C. Vurnis


      Simple to use and sounds great !!

      It's simple to use and sounds great !! The default color out of it sounds great, though the tone controls can smoothly adjust the flavor in a tasteful way. The entire range of the tone controls sound really good - it's not a huge amount of boosting or cutting, but that is useful to fine tune the color.

      The high pass filter works well and I tend to keep it all the way up for most things.

      Good Plate Reverb

      It does what it says on the tin - it's a great plate reverb. Works really well on a vocal bus, particularly for tracking. I find it has limited uses in my actual mixes though as it can be overpowering.
