Computer Music magazine have a cutdown version as CMVerb and Reverb.com have an even more cutdown version for free as Reverb SOLO.
That one is great ;)

Try these too:
Leslie Sanford Reverb - http://www.lesliesanford.com/vst/plugins/ - Free, 64-Bit
Variety of Sounds - EpicVerb - https://varietyofsound.wordpress.com/- Free, 32-Bit

AmbientReverb and OrilReverb suggested earlier are top notch.

Vengeance V-Verb was a big surprise for me. As part of a inexpensive 15 plugins bundle I did not expect a lot from it but I was very pleasantly surprised by this one.
I recently did a comparison of reverbs in my arsenal with the special focus of mixing for depth and locatability. For me it did the job best of all my reverbs (and I have a lot: Waves Reverbs, FabFilter, Valhalla, ArtsAcoustic, MeldaProductions and some more...)

What aspect of the price do you find ridiculous? I find them very fairly priced.

I think he meant that they're ridiculously low priced. Well, it's true that they offer a lot for the money. I just ask myself if they would be held in such high regard if each of them cost 150 €. Doubtful.

Considering 150 verbs often offer multiple algorithms, why make such a comparison? Phoenixverb is about 170 so you'd have to compare it against Valhalla Room, Plate, and maybe VVV for the Halls, combined.

On the other hand, Room, plate and VVV also offer multiple algorithms, and, even 150 € reverbs are often specialized in what they do, and not always jacks of all trades.

Actually, i bought valhalla shimmer on the strength of its sound. me and a friend were making deep tech, and this thing just blew us both away, so i bought a "proper" copy for us.
In fact, i was so happy with shimmer, i went on to buy vintage verb, which to be honest, doesn't sound anything special, but i bought and still use simply because i was so happy with shimmer, and decided i would trust this guy haha

Best budget reverbs ?

It's hard to go past TB Reverb 4,Valhalla Room or Freeverb 3....

You could realistically wrap up any project with just those reverbs....

Well....along with a bunch of inspiration :wink:
Sorry - I don't use auto-tune....

i test what was available 3-4 years ago and definitely favorite was Ambience but also like OldSkoolVerb - not sure what is right application of convolution but for widening entire mix used successfully SIR1 with True M7 i bought,cuz read somewhere for true stereo,but honestly still have no idea how to use it ,from here :

There is someone selling a license of UltraReverb and UltraChannel for $20 in market... Last one I think though! Good seller!

I really like UltraReverb since I picked it up. I think others have complained about it sounding thin... I haven't experimented with it enough to judge but I like what I have dunked around with so far! 8)

Huge fan of Reverbical! It has a huge range of sounds and it's just fun to fool around with morphing and combining presets -- and sounds great, IMHO.

That said, I remember a thread where somebody commented that people are obsessing endlessly over a plugin that is usually mixed at about 20% wet running through the buss. :P

Very nice verb it has to be said, can go pretty deep designing your own spaces. Think it was the first non-DAW reverb I ever used and still holds up well.

If you have an iPhone or iPad, you could get Studiomux + the new Kosmonaut multitap delay (or Audiodamage Dubstation 2) and Audiodamage EOS2 and use the device as an outboard processor in your DAW for around $20 usd.
