Lexicon reverbs. Native Instruments is best known for its synth and sampler-based plug-ins.

More recently, however, it's been making a more determined push into other manufacturers' territory with a range EQ and dynamics plug-ins falling very much into 'vintage emulation' territory. These include the Vintage Compressor and Premium Tube collections, both of which were developed with Sweden's Softube - a firm that specialises in software emulations of sought-after studio gear. Something in the air The search for the perfect artificial reverberation is long, and littered with interesting ideas, false starts and some odd devices. In the analogue realm we have had echo chambers, reverb plates and springs, as well as some pre-digital experiments with analogue bucket- brigade delay lines. However, it was the arrival of fast, and relatively affordable, integrated circuits in the 1970s that swung everything in the direction of DSP. This is especially noticeable in relation to Lexicon.

PSP PianoVerb2 creative resonant reverb plug-in. PSP PianoVerb2 is a redesigned and improved creative resonant reverb plug-in (VST, AAX and RTAS for Windows; AudioUnit, VST, AAX and RTAS for Mac OSX) plug-in based on our famous and beloved freeware plug-in PSP PianoVerb.

Like the original PianoVerb it creates its unique sound with twelve resonant filters that mimic the behavior of piano strings. The ability to transpose, tune and detune the set of strings allow you to set up PianoVerb2 to deliver a wide range of reverberations ranging from traditional wide spread reverb to unique and unusual resonances. With the addition of a brand new modulation section and the ability to set up multiple settings of time and damping and decay freezing (via A/B comparison function) this little plug-in delivers amazing options for creative use.

PSP PianoVerb2 is not really an upgrade from the previous free pianoverb but a powerful reverb plugin tailored & aimed at the piano ( although I've just tried it on guitars ).

WizooVerb W5 is a sublime sounding 5.1 surround reverb that utilises two advanced techniques.

The first of these is HDIR: this stands for High Definition Impulse Response and is essentially a very detailed and spatially enabled version of the standard convolution reverb principle. The second is a more algorithmic process (though Wizoo claim it’s not simply the standard delay and filter process at work) called AIR (or Acoustic Impulse Rendition). The former is designed primarily for recreating actual acoustic spaces, while the latter is far less CPU-intensive and offers more programming flexibility. Both processes sound absolutely mind-blowing -- you really can close you eyes and pick out three-dimensional spaces with your ears. Even in basic stereo mode, W5 is a joy to listen to, and all of its proud owners will undoubtedly use it on their more conventional 2-channel mixes too. Neat touches Head round to WizooVerb’s virtual backside and you’ll find some fantastic routing options.

We explain how to get the best from Cubase's bundled plug-ins. Matt Houghton Reverberation is crucial to our perception of the spaces we inhabit. Close your eyes, and your ears will tell you plenty about the space around you; the sound might be bright or dark, washed in echoes or dry — or anywhere in between. When these clues are removed, as in a dead room or anechoic chamber, the results can be disconcerting.

Tools Of The Trade Since SX3, Cubase users have had access, in the form of Roomworks and Roomworks SE (the latter is a cut-down version of the former), to much better quality reverb than previously. The five dials across the middle that make up Roomworks' Reverb Character section give you some control over the most crucial reverb parameters. The Reverb Character section includes some nice-to-have, though not essential, features. Moving on, the Damping section offers further control over the tonal character of the reverb.
