I know that this plugin is free, and the idea is that it generates random reverbs for research and you vote on them. I'm down with that.
I wanted to like this. I genuinely tried. I was patient, and put in a good amount of time with it. It simply generated too few useful sounding reverbs – in either a practical or creative way– for the time invested. It started to create a snag in the workflow that wasn't overcome by the quality of the end result.
I submitted a number of "Worst Sounding Reverbs" while working with it, so it wasn't a total waste. While the Reverbs weren't my thing, it offered an opportunity to give back, so...
Thanks to u-he and Proverb for that-
For research! For the community!
In fact, my Proverb rating comprises the one star from each of these groups!
great reverb. particularly good for reverbs that you want to sound close to the ear. Its hard to fault other than a few more controls would be nice but that might go against the idea of the whole piece.
Interesting concept. I can recall reading several interviews/ album breakdowns by some older and contemporary artists discussing how they utilized the "air" of certain rooms and how it affected their overall sound. My Morning Jackets' use of an old church in the middle of summer for Circuital comes to mind; according to them, something about the humid, still air brought out a certain warmth during their live sessions which they couldn't replicate elsewhere. So they ended up recording most of the album, live in that church.
Anyway, yea I'll definitely have to check out this one.
