Thanks Michael! At last don't work just on REAPER, others DAWS (Studio One and Nuendo) works perfectly... :tu:
Thank you very very much, Michael ! It (both Hall and Room) works perfectly in Reaper 5.9.6, Cantabile 2 2072, TB Minihost, and Ableton Live 9.7.5.
I know it's extra work and many developers already abandon 32 bit. Therefore it is great if some doesn't follow the trend ! Great Reverb !

I really love these reverbs..
Also the design is brilliant too - really easy on the eyes if you are staring at the screen for long periods.
Thanks - much appreciated!

Hi y'all, I'm working on Dragonfly Reverb again. There is a prerelease available: 2.9.1-beta. The Hall and Room reverbs are almost completely untouched, but there is a new plate reverb with three algorithms from Freeverb3, called Simple, Nested, and Tank. The Simple and Nested algorithms are two variations of NVerb; they were called A and B in NVerb's interface. The Tank algorithm is based on STRev. To better hear the differences between the algorithms, crank up the decay time a bit and it will be much more obvious.

Cool, this is one of my favorite reverbs already. Lets see if it blows the Arturia plate out of the water...

Pre-release 2.9.2-beta fixes a couple of bugs related to the High Cut and Low Cut dials: 2.9.0-beta and 2.9.1-beta would apply these two filters to the dry signal, and the plugin would often get into a state in which it would act like both the High Cut and Low Cut were turned all the way down.

Try 2.9.3-beta, it fixes another bug with the High Cut dial acting weird.

Now that the plate plugin has stabilized, I'm working on my other goal for v3: A stand-alone early reflections plugin. I've been wanting to do this ever since seeing Glenn Fricker's showcase in which he turned the late reverb level down to zero. The new plugin uses the same the early reflections algorithm as Dragonfly Room and Hall, but doesn't include a late reverb algorithm.

You will notice the "Reflection Type" menu, which wasn't available in the Hall or Room plugins. While digging around in Freeverb3's early reflections algorithm, I found that it contained several lists of numbers representing gain levels and delay times for different reflection patterns, but the Freeverb3 plugins only used one of those settings. I decided to expose some of the other ones, and indeed they result in quite different sounds. I made up names only vaguely related to how they sound, try them all! The one called "Concert Venue" is the one used in the Freeverb3 plugins as well as Dragonfly Room and Hall.

The color scheme is supposed to represent some of the pastel colors of early morning... I'm still trying to decide if I like it, but it will probably grow on me like the other plugins did.
