      Simple and Perfect

      On day one this became my go to reverb. Surprisingly simple yet extremely effective. The tone sounds great on all vocals and guitars that have touched it.

      Excellent plate reverb

      I can see this plugin working its way into being my go-to plate reverb. Love the interface and the tone of this thing.

      If you need Plate, you got it

      Simple but great Sounding Plug In, in case of Plate Reverb you're done when you
      own this Masterpiece

      Simple and extremely effective.

      When I need a quick reverb, this is what I throw on my bus. Worth the dsp. Not a ton of variation, much like using a real plate, but what's there can help slide it into any mix. I frequently use this when I don't want to spend a bunch of time programming the perfect reverb, but I often end up tweaking it a couple of times and it ends up in my final mix. GG EZ



      Pure Plate reverb

      one of the best reverb plate for the price, hands down and light on DSP.

      Simple Plate reverb that's light on the DSP

      Great little plate reverb that I really value when I am using my Arrow. It sounds great and light on the DSP.

      That RCA Studio B Sound

      If you need something a little warmer and bigger than the EMT140, this is a step in that direction. I probably overuse this in my own recordings which speaks to both my lack of talent and this plugins ability to make just about everything sound better. I’ve always admired the Chet Atkins / Elvis / Roy Orbison reverb sound that RCA had back in the 60’s and 70’s. I’ve been in that studio a number of times. I once asked one of the engineers to show me the reverb. He said, “It’s just a plate and a mic stuck up above the ceiling.” Pure Plate!

      from many years I was trying the perfect plate reverb, this is the best. simple to use and sound perfect. I will use this forever. I love it.

      I love this plugin. I use it all the time and make good use of the panning function. I also like that it isn't DSP hungry.

      One of my must haves.

      I Use it On Everything

      I've been using this plugin on my reverb bus. It sounds great. Subtle to very wet, it all sounds good. No plans to use any other reverbs in the near future.

      Great plugin for recording

      Light weight and great sounding plugin great for recording !!

      F. Grönlund


      Lush and beautiful sound

      Great sound with an appropriate number of tweakable parameters. With a short decay it goes well on drums.

      M. Capitani


      Sounds superb

      Such a smooth, clean reverb that has a very open spacial sound. I tried this on drums and vocals and compared it with other plate reverbs. The results had me instantly hooked. In fact, the sound is actually pretty addictive and I found myself listening to it on loop for an extended amount of time.

      In particular, this plugin even has a directional parameter so you can pan the reverb left or right, to the opposite of the sound for an interesting panned reverb, stereo effect amongst other flexible settings.

      This should be a standard go-to reverb plugin in every UAD owners tool kit for either short room reverb for drum sounds or long, hall type settings. Excellent reverb plugin.

      This reverb is simple, but sounds terrific. I've been using it on all my vocals now.
