Nomad Factory is a major plug-in company founded by the late Bernie Torelli, an internationally recognized recording engineer, producer and composer whom worked in Paris, Montreal, and Los Angeles with legendary musicians and artists such as Stanley Clarke in Los Angeles, Michel Polnareff in France, Marie Carmen in Montreal just to name a few. His work has garnered praise from numerous leading industry magazines, including Mix and Pro Audio Review. Bernie was nominated for a Grammy Award for mixing Cab2 "Best Contemporary Jazz Instrumental Album".

In 2001, focusing on experience acquired through over 25 years of analog engineering, Bernie started developing products reminiscent of 60's and 70's technology. The Blue Tubes Bundle was born. As an engineer working at Track Star Studios in San Diego, California, Bernie quickly replaced the studio's standard plug-ins with his own. A host of top notch player's passing through could not help but notice the amazing sound quality, combined with user friendly features. After being asked over and over if these products were available on the market, in mid-2002 Nomad Factory became an official company selling audio plug-ins on the Internet.

Nomad Factory's product line counts over 120 products today that include Award Winning plug-ins, such as, the Blue Tubes Bundle, Magnetics Bundle, Analog Mastering Tools, British Bundle and many more...

In January 2016, Plugivery Distribution took over Nomad Factory's business following the sad passing of long time friend and partner Bernie Torelli. Since they acquired the company, Plugivery maintained the product line and launched 5 best selling plug-ins inspired by Bernie's notes for upcoming products that included: Bus Driver, 80's Spaces, Analog Studio Rack, Garbage LSD and Drum Tools.

New products will shortly see the light of day with Bernie's graduate assistant Maxence Grandidier as lead developer. Assisted by new, young and talented developers, Maxence, with a solid team of staffs at Plugivery, is surely the man to keep the spirit of the legendary Nomad Factory brand.

Version reviewed: 1 on Windows

Okay this is because it's starting with 4x Oversampling and therefore way too CPU hungry.

Apart from that it's well. Sounds good even with 1x Oversampling. Didn't realise this until now.

Nonetheless there would be much optimization potential for future updates by making it a little less CPU consuming.

So 4 stars it is 4 now.

80s Spaces is a great reverb.

Works fine in FL Studio.

Excellent value for what you get.

One of the best software reverb plugins I have for the money.

If you can get over a very 2000ish looking gui this is a steal when it's on sale. Nice tools to work with and have also some presets.

Most daws offer these solutions already to their customers. So it might only be necessary if you want something different.

Love this pack and Nomad Factory 's Plugings but only when there is some discount because usually prices are very high.

I use them on a mac M1 and everything is OK.

Version reviewed: 5.1 on Windows

Could not argue with the sale price, you really are getting a lot for $29.

Sound wise these are good, there are plenty of analogue modelled plugins out there and I don't feel like these stand out particularly nor do they sound bad just nothing to write home about.

The only problem I have (which I really should have checked before hand) is the lack of scaling, the GUI is tiny and is likely why I wont be using them much, my bad for not checking.

Amazing amazing reverb!! Especially obviously for 80s, synthwave, retro and even modern drum reverbs. I spend lots of days trying to get that 80s gated reverb but was never completely satisfied until I got this reverb. This gets me instantly excited and inspired to produce and mix. Oh and there are so many different reverbs in here, I can't imagine how much time they took to sample all of those reverb units. This is a must have!! Thank you so much Nomad Factory.
