Sounds nice

Extremely easy to dial in and sounds great. A little boring perhaps but that's easy to fix with chorus or distortion etc..



Great sound at minimum settings.

Wonderful plugin from UAD. Thank you for the opportunity to enjoy the best devices created in the last century.

This is the vintage plate reverb sound that I have been searching for 17 years for!!!

I own all of the UAD EMT Reverbs and the DreamVerb. I owned a Bricasti. Soundtoys. I've owned lots of reverb and delay pedals from Roland, Eventide, Sony and Boss. Despite the love that these products get, even the old UAD verbs, I never fell in love with any, except for the Echoboy, which has been getting heavy use, and the Earthquaker Dispatch Master, which is outstanding pedal for guitar. UAD's Pure Plate Reverb is, in short, AMAZING. This is the one that I have been waiting for. It sounds like real plate verb, or something very close to it. It nails that mid-60s Decca / Abbey Road / Pye verb and is versatile. This sucker already saved one of my songs and I imagine it will be used on most of my sessions from here on out. Great!



Fat and juicy

Oh man, this plugin is exactly what I hoped it would be. Dead simple to use, but so flexible.

Großartiger Plate Reverb

Einfach zu bedienen. Wenn man danach noch einen EQ setzt kommt man zu fantastischen Ergebnissen. Super Preis/Leistungsverhältnis.

R. Katuin


Clean and easy to use.

I love this reverb. As soon as i bought it i started using it on my vocals and leads. It is my standard reverb now. Also think the price is more than fair.

The simplest way to add plate reverb to anything in your mix.

I can honestly say I am 100 percent impressed with this little beauty-simple to use,sounds spot on-I enjoy mixing in space with it and it will always be my first plug in-in my AUX send-Thank you (Universal Audio) for another TOP QULITY PRODUCT.

Great reverb, easy to use !

I'm not really tech savy when it comes to reverb, so the simplified approach to settings is really great, you can't go wrong with this one !

Sound is great, if you don't have the EMT 140 it's a great plug to start

A. Korotkov


Simple & Perfect

Simplified and low cost version of EMT 140. Excellent sound, useful GUI. I love it.

D. Draganov

H. Zwarts


fijne galm

Goed klinkende plate reverb. Niet duur en echt een aanvulling op de reverb collectie!

R. Ray Harris


Pure Plate equals great trail

I appreciated the natural sound of this verb in my bus. Pure Plate Reverb adds instant dimension that's uncluttered when used properly, I'd venture to say it probably works even if not, when overdone for effect. Thanks for taking that extra step that is a good companion to the EMT 140.
