Halls Of Fame - Origami Edition
Halls Of Fame - Origami Edition provides "the 13 best Reverb-Machines of the last four decades" in one plug-in.
Sonic Lab's Halls Of Fame and Yellow Tools' Origami engine combine to form an all-in-one reverb and effects processor solution. With "Vintage Legends" and "Digital Legends", Sonic Lab has rounded up all the stars from the Halls of Fame in one collection.
This follow-up to the Halls of Fame IR collection (which contains audio IRs only, no Origami engine and two units only: Lex 960 + T600C) comes in True Stereo. The impulse responses from vintage and digital reverb classics are now available in one convenient and easy to use convolution reverb processor plug-in with all the original presets and more. The libraries contain all the original presets from the following units:
- Vintage Legends:
- EMT 240 (1974).
- EMT 250 (1976).
- Lex 224 (1978).
- Lex 300 (1998).
- Lex 480 (1987).
- AKG BX 20 (1965).

- Even T 2016 (1983 / 2006) Reverb.
As the first anniversary offer, you can order this product in the new Yellow Tools online shop with a discount of €80 for €299 (instead of €379).
Halls Of Fame is also the first "E-License" product that does not require the Yellow Tools Authorization Key (USB dongle) but comes with a challenge/response activation scheme instead.
All products from the Independence Pro 2.5 Software Suite are also already "E-License" compatible. This means that you will be able to load any upcoming E-License product (instruments, IR files, etc.) in Independence 2.5.
