    Just received a copy of the UAD-1's Dreamverb along with their new drivers and I must say I'm impressed. It has certainly exceeded my expectations and it's easy to tweek. The official release is not out yet but should be in a few days.

    Not having yet heard the Dreamverb, the best news in your post for me is:

    OSX is NEXT!!!

    UA's FAQ section has said for months that the OSX drivers for UAD-1 will follow Dreamverb.

    No more excuses!

    :cool: RW :roll:

    I've been waiting for the Dreamverb release and to hear any reports about how the it compares with the Lexicon PCM 80/90 series units. Please post any impressions you may have.

    I've applied for the copy of Dreamverb two days ago, but still haven't received any mail from Universal Audio... Wonder what's taking them so long :) ...

    Meanwhile I've tried the demo a little, and it seem to KICK ASS ! Any other opinion ? How do you think it stands against TC Powercore's reverbs ?

    Well, the more I play with DreamVerb (DB), the more I like it! It is much, much better then RealVerb Pro (RVP), but there are a lot of folks claiming that it is not as nice as the TC stuff or harwarde boxes. I cannot compare it to the TC stuff since I have not used any of their plugs.

    I have a friend who compared the DV to the Lexicon 550 hardware unit...not sure if this is a fair comparison or not...it was just his impression, and that was after a very short evaluation.

    I have been spending more time reading the manual, and twiddling with all the controls, and I am very, very impressed. It really makes RVP look cheap! :)

    Agreed. I also use SIR and I'm still happy with Dreamverb.

    I'm very interested in comparisons to the Lexicon PCM models. The 550 is a nice box but in terms of verb quality it's not even close to the PCM units. In my view, the entry level benchmark for truely professional quality verbs begins with the PCM models and goes up from there. ;)

    I too love the dreamverb. it sound really good. I use it allot for drums.

    I still prefer my classicverb for vocals though.

    It doesn't sound the same as the pcm series of lexicon, but not necessarily worse though. Just different.

    Of course, I agree completely. I was just stating a comparison that I read from a respected colleague who posted that comparison elsewhere.

    Dreamverb is not up to the quality of the PCM stuff...at least not yet.

    I did some limited voicing for DV and found it to be pretty transparent. That may be good or bad depending on your application. I'd be interested to hear it next to the new eMagic reverb, TC, Lexi and the KSP8.

    I dunno, its just one of those things aboutplug-ins..its missing...something. Not to say it isn't useful it just needs, I dunno....salt.
