Hey guys, now that I have settled on the BBD delay [thanks!], next step is to get a VST reverb plugin which sounds as close to my old Pioneer Reverb:

Any ideas please?

There aren't many BBD reverb plugins available afaik. Two come to mind:

Doesn't need to be bbd, any verb which can sound as natural or closest to that Pioneer will do.

Well, you may not believe this but on my computer speakers they both sound similar to my unit. Thing too is the Radioshack one seems to also do the delays of the bbd! This means I might only need to just this one plugin for both reverb and delay and I particular like using the sliders which is way better and much easier than the rotary knobs.

I won't be able to test until Monday or so on my rig but once again, thanks a million!

Meantime, any idea why the Delay left "and" delay right on this Ratshack plugin?

The original Realistic 32-1110 was a mono device. I guess Audio Damage wanted to make it possible to use it in stereo.

You can use the L&R Link switch to control both delay sliders with the Delay Left slider, so left and right will have the same delay time.

Unlinked you can create the effect of using two devices together as stereo 'reverb' (slight difference between Delay Left and Delay Right) or you can go for a more creative effect (large difference between Delay Left and Delay Right).

As for using the Ratshack Reverb for both reverb and delay instead of using two plugins, I'm not sure if it will give you the delay time you'll need as it only goes up to around 150 ms.

So one last step with this effects situation please. Any idea what specs I should look for in a vintage unit preferably 70s which will give me the same delay fx/options as the BBD please?

That is why I am looking at Echo Chambers, problem of course is I can't listed to demo one before buying and they are not cheap.
