    I picked up this reverb plug recently: ValhallaRoom: $50 – ValhallaDSP

    Only criticism I can find is the price is far too low: people might assume the sound is cheap to match. I assure you it isn't!

    Highly recommended: give it a try :cool:

    Hey Dan. I'd love to hear some samples if you have any.

    Quite a few examples here if you scroll down. Mostly extreme ambient settings with beyond-cathedral decay times however! I've been meaning to get some more natural examples together: I'll post some up when I get a chance.

    I highly recommend the trial. Short silence every 45 seconds. It is definately a reverb you can "turn up" and not have it start to sound fake real fast.

    Compared to other algarythmic reverbs (DVerb, True Verb, RVerb, most free verbs) you don't get the graininess or synthetic sound of the space as much. Ir's not 100% REAL room sounding, but is is quite smooth and pleasant sounding.

    Convolutions can sound as smooth or better but with less tweakability. I highly recomend this, and at $50, it's a no brainer for something you can use for every project.

    From the examples, it has a similar Eventide Blackhole texture

    I really like it as well! However, for the past year my choice has been solely on the LiquidSonics Reverberate! Presets are jaw drop and the Impulse response tweaks are fantastic! I've been through a lot of reverbs for the past 15 years, and never found a plugin like this one! You should all give it a try!

    LOL... wow, they really are on the ball, considering it's only July 14th. ;)

    Thanks for the head's up. I'll give it a try.

    There are times that I really like and prefer convolution reverbs, if I'm looking for a more "natural" kind of space; but there are times where I prefer reverbs that can give me a more supernatural effect. It depends on what I'm working on at the time.

    I've used Pristine Space, Waves IR-L, Altiverb, and a few others, with varying amounts of success. As with any convolution reverb, I've found that they are only ever as good as the reverb algorithms that they have measured, emulated, and included as presets... and on that note, the other thing I've found with them - that so far they all have in common - is that the less tweaking you do to the presets, the better they sound.

    IMHO of course. ;)

    You also have to check out Valhalla VintageVerb. This and ValhallaRoom are my goto reverbs.
    Imo they can compete with much more expensive plugins.
