Info and vids are pretty sparse, so wondering how this is on vocals. It seems it might have other instruments well covered and it's tweak-ability looks comparable to EA Nimbus and some of the other more expensive reverbs. I currently own VVV, Shimmer, TB Reverb 4 and PSP EMT 2445...looking for a nice "icing on the cake" verb that is clean with maybe a little bit of mojo.
I'm not a huge reverb expert, but I liked the reverbs in my Axe-FX enough to buy this one. I also have TB Reverb 4 and I feel like it's a bit better sounding and more versatile. As far as vibe goes I haven't really messed around with it much truth be told but if you wanna PM me some vocal stems I can run them through the plugin at various settings if you like. I think it sounds nice and it's infinitely customizable.
And yeah, it's currently 80 bucks and will probably stay that way. I bought it at the same price god knows how long ago. The plugin market is saturated already and I think Fractal found out that their name doesn't carry as much weight in the DAW world so they probably sold almost none at the orignal 300 bucks. But for 80 bucks? Sure. Sadly it only has one registration per copy unlike most other iLok plugins I have that give you 2 so you can have one for your desktop and one for your laptop.
Hey, huge thanks DeathByGuitar. The fact that the $80 dollars seems permanent eases the GAS. I'm on a temp setup while my rig is on a sloooow transit to our new home, so I don't have any stems, but I may just DL something off of Looperman to send you for some tests. I like the TB verb too, so I like the fact that you have both. The whole reverb thing has been a long test, test some more, meh, ohh I like that one saga. One thing I'm listening for is how it glues to the source...Nimbus is the first verb I tested that seems to have this strange quality, plus all the ducking and fine tuning, but the eq is sort of weird with all the pre, verb, post while FAS-FX is just a straight up parametric on the wet. The free Ambient Reverb by Stone Voices seems to have this glue to the source effect, but only one algorithm. Agg, too many choices.
