The SP2016 was the first programmable effects box available on the market. It introduced the concept of the 'plug-in' to the pro audio world back in 1982, with actual hardware chips that would be plugged in under the hood. Revered for its signature reverbs, the SP2016 was notably used by Dave Pensado, George Massenburg, Alan Sides, Roy Hendrickson, Jack Douglas, and Mick Guzauski. The lush reverb can be heard on countless hit records by Talking Heads, Adele, Mariah Carey, Eminem, and more. Now, 36 years later, this signature sound is available for your DAW.

The SP2016 reverbs have attracted a loyal user base by using a particular blend of art and science - the end result is an effect that sounds natural and distinctive. The plug-in includes authentic emulations of Room, Stereo Room, and Hi-Density Plate algorithms, each available in two versions: Vintage and Modern. The Vintage algorithms are true to the original box, all the way down to the bit-depth. The Modern algorithms are brighter, more diffuse, and use a higher bit-depth.

The algorithms naturally emulate every aspect of the sound of a real physical environment – from the complex early reflections, to the natural way in which the echo density increases with time, to the smooth Gaussian decay of the reverb tail. It's a powerful simulation that lends itself to parametric control.

yesterday i purchase the upgrade for 29$...

Yesterday i install the plugin on Imac, everything was perfecr (+ilok).
Cubase recognise the plugin without a problem, /
i have play with it during 1 or 2 hours, i don't know the hardware, but i like the plugin .

this is a 'do for all' reverb, it does really a nice work on the track.

i don't see nothing bad to tell about it, i have vallahla, Lexicon, audio damage, softube, Ikm CSR and all the eventide other plugins.

i quiclky try it on the song i ' m working on the result is not better or worse, it's different .

This one is good and 29 $ is a no brain deal.

don't miss the intro deal .
