I just think it looks like one of these:

or

Maybe as a guitar player, I'm not really bothered by colorful, stompbox like GUI's?

The GUI/UX is ok : no non-sense, clear layout, with a nice hierarchy of the various controls. My only gripe would be that it responds weirdly to the mousewheel.

Its got a sound that I haven't found in many VST plugins (and I have been looking).
You know when you get to the mix and the reverb starts sounding flat...

Sonsig sounds a bit more harmonic or something.

It sounds like it would stand up, love to hear some mixes.

Ok i have used this a lot now - it is awesome. beats out many of my reverbs on many tasks (specially drms/ perc)
The interface is actually a strong point - like the colour scheme or not, it is well laid out, simple and lovely to use.

They have done something quite brilliant here - complex control over lots of parameters with few outward facing parameters - not many have pulled this off in my opinion. I don't ever feel like i am lacking control (that said, would love to have a 'under the hood page for the character control..get in there and adjust the envelope/onset)

There are other verbs (such as eventide 2016) which have few controls and in my opinion, aren't anywhere near as easy to tune in.
Nicely done

Very pleased with new reverb and grateful for the new reverb being a free addition to bundle owners. A very generous ‘gift’ from the Relab developers. Thank you.

Currently mixing audio for a film and am finding Sonsig making its way onto multiple tracks. Such a balanced placed sound coming with the use of Sonsig.

I was doing a little experiment.

This reverb was designed after one used by Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois on various productions.

I have done this experiment with various plugins to see if they can make that type of reverb.

Sonsig gets darn close....
Very cool, love that ambient stuff!

I'm slightly disappointed. I was looking for the RevA mode to sound more modern or natural, but this is through and through a very 80's reverb. It's quite a good if you're looking for that specific sound, but as soon as you compare with something like UVI Plate on insane quality or Pro-R -- (in my opinion) it's just totally left in the dust.

It's great for guitars and synths, but not very versatile. I also think that it has many cheaper and comparable quality competing products, especially Valhalla VintageVerb is in my opinion a much better purchase because you can do more with it and costs half as much. Just my 2c.

Actually, the Lexicon 224 was released in 1978.
Still one of the best reverbs ever made.
For more natural spaces, Impulse Responses might be the way to go.

This reverb is exactly what I've been waiting for. Bought it, I can honestly stop looking around now.

Sami, how does it work on synth? I expect some modulation of the reverb tail, so not some kind of "invisible" reverb.
