TAL-Reverb-III is an easy-to-use stereo plate plug-in. It's the replacement for TAL-Reverb-II and has several improvements such as an optimized GUI and some changes in the reverb algorithm. It has a simplified EQ section, a meter display and shows actual slider values. The reverb has its own character and produces a very diffuse plate. TAL tried to create a colorless and maximal diffuse plate reverb without grains and digital artifacts. It's the result of a lot tuning and testing.

Performance & Stability
It works very well on the CPU, and memory usage. I have used several dozen on a project, and it doesn’t seem to have any noticeable latency on a higher end system. It is very, very stable, and has never crashed on me (64bit VST version), since the developer is awesome, and makes binaries in 32 & 64bit.
It is absolutely stunning - I have used many types of reverb, and have not yet found one this diffuse.
One word that really comes to mind is heavenly. It really works well in the electronic genres, when you need to make a sound massive. Put this reverb on any old plinky dinky saw wave sound, move up the wetness, stereo, and room size parameters… and watch it soar like a raging griffin! Every time I hear it I almost go into a catharsis.
Not only does the stereo width sound brilliant, and full, the brightness of the reverb is excellent. It doesn’t seem to replicate the brightness of your sound, but adds to it.
This means that if you are trying to model realistic auditorium sounds, a bathroom sound (in movie effects for example), or acoustic drums, it may not work for you (TAL Reverb 1/2 being a better candidate).
Perfect. Everything is up front, symmetrical, easy on the eyes, and intuitive. It contains seven knobs of wonder, and delight. Amusingly it reminds me a bit of a Nintendo video game, because of the font used – which is a refreshing change from other photo realistic contenders.
Excellent, it has all the features one would expect for this kind of sound.
The developer is very friendly (also very passionate about his work) and responds cordially to all emails, and fast.Read more

I have many freeware reverbs (who hasn't tried lots of them ?) and a dozen or so commercial reverbs and I have to say this is about my favourite plate. The presets are basic but sufficient, the UI is crap-free, it doesn't have any bells and whistles, it just sounds great.
No docs that I am aware of but what's to know?
Value is undisputable (ie. free)and it is versatile - works great on drums, percussion and guitar and has onboard filtering.
Never crashed on my system and TAL have a good name for quality products so entirely trustworthy I would say.
If you need a plate, try this.
If you don't think you need a plate try it anyway. If you need to put space around guitars or percussion, there is nothing like a tiny touch of low CPU plate, suitably filtered, and I have yet to find a better tool for that job than TAL Reverb. Love it.Read more
