Long story short, I like studio one's "open air" best of all my verbs, but I use live 99% of the time :x

So, I got to looking at the Hofa IQ verb and I'm like.......man, that's a lot of money. I better make SURE I get what I'm after. So, though it's a broad question I thought it best to just start the thread, get peoples current takes, then do some demos, etc. Yeah, I'm leaning towards a convo, but I want to kinda see what the take is currently. That includes verbs I own/have owned. I still want to hear what you like.

Has to be x64, has to work with live, has to be windows, has to be either zero latency/or compensated by live, for studio one I'll use "open air". Oh and yes I am ilok "curious" so feel free to mention ilok'ed verbs!

thanks.

Well best value for money is to buy ValhallaRoom and ValhallaVintageVerb at $100 for both. They seem to have a lot to offer for the money and have loads more character than Abletons 'verb.

Next up IMO would be Acon Digital Verberate for $100. The audio demos I've heard from this are very realistic.

Are there high quality zero latency convolution reverbs? I don't think Live even compensates latency for the Convolution Reverb they include with Suite.

I like the non-convolution reverbs by Valhalla and Exponential Audio the best. OK, I still love the Lexicom PCM series, but I'm trying not to.

If you mean the maxforlive reverb, then no. I remember someone saying that almost all of the M4L stuff is affected by PDC.

I DO NOT like the M4L convo verb. I hate using it. It's not that it sounds bad, it's that it's a PITA.

@valhalla: The boy knows how to cook, doesn't he? However, in EXHAUSTIVE comparisons, I found I personally like my RC 24/48's for algo. HOWEVER, since I'm ilok "curious" I thought I'd save an open space for stuff like "TSAR"

Remember guys, I wouldn't even be asking if "open air" was a vst that I could use with live ;)

@zero latency convo: Reverberate does this, and I have it. But frankly that and "reflektor" don't really sound right to me anymore. Compared to "open air" they are flat and unlively (sorry reverberate guy, you're such a great dev!)

Another thing you could do is pick up 32lives and get the lexicon stuff.

I have been using 32lives and it works great. check the compatibility

If your interested I'll sell you 32lives for $50 bones.

My personal favorite is still 112db redline reverb, after that I'd go with anything from Valhalla.

Exponential Audio reverbs, or Lexicon.

I dont use Live and nowdays only seldom use convol reverbs so take this with a pinch of salt. But for those who crave the Lexiconish sound, EA reverbs are superb/ Just demo them and see by yourself if they fit your likes.

Love Valhalla, but best would be Bricasti and NO LATENCY at all ;)

VORT3X meant another one, not Reverberate, but Verberate, which is algorithmic.

Next up IMO would be Acon Digital Verberate for $100. The audio demos I've heard from this are very realistic.

Im a mixed bag

Love the lexicons and softube tsar (but not everyones taste the latter).

Aether/B2 are also in there purely for the reverb effects, these are very powerful but certainly not low latency.

Valhallas are a no brainer, well worth the demo and still a goto when I need simplicity.
