Soundtoys releases SuperPlate Reverb Plugin for macOS & Windows (VST, AU & AAX) with intro offer


Soundtoys has announced the release of SuperPlate, a new plugin offering the unique tonal character of five classic electromechanical plate reverbs.

At the core of SuperPlate are meticulous models of the EMT 140, EMT 240, Audicon, Stocktronics RX4000, and EcoPlate III reverb units. Its three different flavors of analog coloration – Tube, Solid-State and Clean – can be used in combination with any of SuperPlate's styles. Its wide range of modern digital features includes infinite decay time, built-in predelay, expanded modulation controls, full-featured EQ for detailed tonal shaping, and a unique decay ducking option that adjusts decay time to reduce overlap or build-up.

All plate reverbs use a pre-amplifier to drive the "voice coil" that turns electrical sound waves into the physical vibrations of a plate reverb device. Soundtoys have included two different preamp models in SuperPlate, Tube and Solid-State, along with a Clean mode – which can each be used in combination with any of SuperPlate's styles.

SuperPlate's unique Auto-Decay feature shortens the decay time to a desired "target" setting when the input signal is above the adjustable threshold. This feature is crucial in keeping the sound clear and prevents punchy transients from being overpowered by excessive reverb tails.

SuperPlate's built-in filters and EQ makes it easy to sculpt the reverb to fit your mix. The low-cut filter is essential to prevent excessive low-frequency energy from building up, and the high-cut filter can be used to help the reverb to blend in naturally with the original sound. The two parametric bands are flexible and can be used to help tame mid range resonances or add high frequency sheen.


  • Five Analog Plate Styles.
  • Three Preamp Options.
