Default reverb plug-ins

What are some of you guys using in terms of reverb plug ins? I'm in the market for something new, more specifically, something versatile. I used to use the waves renverb in my native days, and have considered buying the renmaxx tdm bundle, but haven't decided if that'll be enough. I downloaded a demo of the Eventide Reverb...and it was great, but it sucked up major HD power per use.

I haven't heard anything better than the Eventide Reverb yet. It's lighter, and more airy/transparent sounding than the heavier convolution verbs. It just takes one slot per instance -- not too bad IMO.

Hi,

Its the same with all decent reverbs! they all use a lot of chip usage, the ones that don't just don't have the sound. The TL labs space is a great convolution reverb and the Eventide is the best all round in my opinion, also revibe is a great choice. could try the princeton digital reverbs!? a bit basic but quite nice.

ReVibe is great, in particular if you like tweaking settings like on a 224 or 480. Needs a lot of DSP though and is Accel only. Good for long reverbs (vocals etc) AND short drum rooms and the like. Quite amazing really. Very easy to manipulate separatly ER and reverb, a bit like on a Waves RenRev but more sophisticated. These are the first ER that I actually like, even if I put only a little of it.

HARDWARE!!! Lexicon's... Think MPX-1 for versatility, spdif (@44.1 or MPX550@48K) no upgrades, no WUPs, no resources, and a company that stands behind their customers (free firmware updates for second hand hardware!!!), ...and an industry leader in reverb. MX200... VST wrapper interface to hardware... $$$? 960L ...AND THAT'S JUST THE REVERB PORTION OF THE BOXES

~okay... off the soapbox with ya~

Another vote for ReVibe. I was skeptical about it when it was first announced, but the more I use it, the more I like it. It's very open and spacious. The chorusing gives it depth and animation that you're not going to get out of any of the current day static convolution verbs. If you keep your eyes open, you might be able to pick up a copy of ReVibe off eBay at a very good price.

Another thing to consider with ReVibe: Since it's a Digidesign plug-in, you can count on it being supported for a LONG time. There's no chance of being hung out to dry like those who purchased LexiVerb.

As far as the Waves stuff goes, I haven't used IR-1 (I object to it on philosophical principles), but I have their other reverb plug-ins in the Diamond bundle, and I don't care for them at all. I never use them.

Thanks guys. That seems to be the consensus. It's been kind of a toss up between revibe and reverb one. I downloaded demos of those two, but unfortunately I had to go out of town and didn't have anytime to mess around with them too much. Also, on an unrelated note, I downloaded the demo of MCdsps' Channel G...that plug in is fantastic...especially as a bus compressor. Take care all.

If it's between those two for you, DEFINITELY go with ReVibe. Reverb One is a flaky piece of code with a number of problems that Digidesign just can't seem to fix. I have both, and since I got ReVibe, the only time I open up Reverb One is for old sessions that used it. I'm sick and tired of having my nerves jangled by the Reverb One BIG BONG. It's bad enough when it happens to just you. When the BIG BONG goes through your cue system to talent in the studio wearing phones, you'd better have your track shoes on, because you're going to have some people that want to kill you on your tail. Reverb One is not safe for pro use. If you don't already have it, there's no point in taking on such a liability.

For some folks, Reverb One also has problems recalling settings. For me, ReVibe works flawlessly.

Mainly ReverbOne, especially for the larger spaces. I love the presets and it is easy to work with. RVerb is another favorite.

I tried Altiverb, TL Space and Waves IR-1 recently.

I picked the Waves IR-1 cause it sounded the best and didn't make my G5 even wince.
