Nimbus is a new and improved reverb unit based on the familiar PhoenixVerb but offering better sound, greater flexibility and new capabilities:

  • Better sounding: Nimbus is based on the core of the popular PhoenixVerb, but Exponential Audio has "combined honest user feedback with a fertile creative imagination to make it sound even better".
  • No CPU hog: Nimbus is a native plug-in, requiring no special hardware and offering even more flexibility while continuing to work with minimal load on your computer.
  • Easy to use: While Nimbus is brand new, existing users will find it reassuringly familiar, and new users will find their way around in a matter of minutes.

There were always elements - like overdrive - that Nimbus creator Michael Carnes felt would be helpful in 'warming up' a reverb. He also saw a need to dynamically lower reverb levels in louder parts of a mix: with dynamic tail suppression Nimbus now has this covered.

Users have long asked for tempo-controllable pre-delay: Nimbus now has this implemented.

Over 1200 presets and handy new tool-tips: Nimbus has everything under control to get you started.

Features at a glance:

  • Better sounding.
  • The familiar core of PhoenixVerb, extended in new directions.
  • New warp section with compressor/expander and overdrive.
  • Pre-delay and reverb delay now adjustable by tempo.
  • New tail suppression circuit for more dynamic response.
  • Over 1200 presets.
  • Helpful tool-tips to guide new users.

Nimbus is available for 64-bit Mac OS X and Windows in VST2, VST3, AU and AAX plugin formats (32-bit AAX is also available).
