Best free reverbs? 2011-08-15 17:24:33 Reply

I searched for reverb topics and only came across one in the last year so I figured I'd ask newgrounds - what do you think are the best free reverb plugins and why?

Figured I'd expand what I have beyond ye olde fruity reverb.

Thanks y'all!

I use epicVerb alot for orchestral stuff. It's a bit tough to work with at times, but with a little patience you can get a really nice, big sound.

epicVerb by Variety of Sound (but you might want to try the other effects as well, pretty awesome eq, compressors...etc)
Martin Eastwood's MVerb - available for Windows and Mac.
REFLEXfree - interesting Delay/Reverb/Modulation effect.
LiquidSonics' Reverberate LE - probably best convolution reverb forWindows.
TAL - Reverb
MuVerb
Spring Reverb by Hotto Engineering
Glaceverb or if the site is down, LINK2 - one of my favorites.
TimeVerb by GSi
Ambience by Magnus of Smartelectronix - THIS is a great plugin!
Classic Reverb from Kjaerhus Audio Classic Series (well, from there I use mostly the delay, compressor and limiter, but the reverb is also very ok).
Freeware Studio Reverbs released by Wusik.com based on Martin Eastwood's original MVerb.

I think you mean convolution reverb... and all reverb is made up of an element of modeled (digitally emulating something that occurs naturally) convolution reverb.

Reverb Is practicly the main aspect of all of my songs these days.... and i dont know what i would do without my favorite VST: EOS by Audio Damage. It's not very known but it is used by a few big artists. Its simple and Amazingly effective.

Classic Reverb by Kjaurhaus VST's is my go to bus reverb. Great for adding air to drums or vocals, but not an "effect" reverb.

Also, sorely surprised at the lack of plate and spring reverb VST's mentioned here!

Most DAW reverbs, delays, compressors, gates and EQ's are actualy of a fairly high quality as it's pretty much expected. On the unusual occasion where I want a "character" EQ I might stray from ReaEQ, but generaly I don't feel the need! Likewise the ReaGate gate plugin is good and does some cool MIDI stuff, the compressor is fine - admittedly hard to find one I like for everything. But they're often also designed very clearly with a very common set of features that allows new users to get familiar with aspects of an effect

Any footage you see of big producers will often have Logic or ProTool's 5 Band EQ or Reverv clearly displayed. The Bombfactory,Lofi and Rectifier effects that come with Protools are also very commonly seen! So I wouldn't avoid host VSTs or VSTi's, whatever you do!

Fruity Reeverb 2 works great for me. You can always EQ the actualreverb output if you're not liking the sound the vst itself is giving you, and from there whatever other effects you want. It's never failed me.
