The Sanford Reverb is a true stereo reverb. It is capable of simulating everything from small rooms to giant cavernous spaces. Its sound is dense, clean, and crisp making it perfect for most situations.
Left and right input channels each have a set of 3 early reflections that can be independently set. The filter section lets you shape the tone of the reverb's output, and damping is provided to simulate wall absorption. Together these features let you shape the reverb sound to simulate almost any room.
Modulation is also provided to add motion to the reverb tail. The result is a more animated and lively reverb.
One of the few free reverbs worth using, Sanford's core sound is unbeatable for short and medium length reverb sounds.
In particular its comprehensive early reflections section makes it indispensable for when early reflections really count. ER settings are important to tweak to your particular input source content, and the one-size-fits-all approach of most conventional reverbs make their early reflections almost useless. I've even used only its early reflections with the reverb all the way down to combine a different reverb with good early reflections, for when I want to use a different reverb.
Surgical ER, plus a great core sound that doesn't rely on noisy overdiffusion like most freebie 'verbs do, makes for a reverb I can't help but always come back to.Read Review
This thing is just great, really great. I had been demoing the Softube Tsar-1 reverb which is fabulous and I would say the Sanford Reverb is easily as good. Adjustable early reflections, mix for ER and LR, output gain, filters... yep, this thing has everything I need. Not only is it $269 cheaper than Tsar-1, it uses about a quarter of the CPU. This is one of those plugins when you wonder why you would want to pay for something that, quite frankly, is no better. Highly recommended, and comes in both Windows x32 and x64 versions too.Read Review
This is my go-to reverb from now on. It is quite probably the best free reverb that you can go crazy with without drowning the dry signal unintentionally. It has complete control over the early reflections, late reflections, a filter, an LFO and even control over the 6 bands of early reflection! It is incredibly easy to get the reverb you want (I normally change only the dry, output, er, lr and time knobs and ignore the modulation, filter and 6 reflections) and both the dry and wet sounds will sound amazing. 10/10, best reverb ever.Read Review
