eaReckon EAREVERB 2
A new reverb plugin ! Looks nice but does it sounds good ?
EAReverb 2 is a 100% algorithmic reverb plug-in (32/64-bit VST2, VST3, AU, AAX).
It features the “Natural” core engine of the original EAReverb but also brings a plethora of new algorithms and functionalities accessible from a totally revised user interface.
Compared to the former EAReverb which focuses on simulating natural environments, EAReverb 2 can then be considered as a more holistic answer to your reverb needs.
SIX DIFFERENT ALGORITHMS
Formerly conceived for the original EAReverb, this algorithm provides smooth and natural results by avoiding metallic artefacts and by offering an adjustable level of subtle randomness in the late reverb.
Compared to “Natural”, using Bright is like adding carbon dioxide to source water.
Just consider high frequencies as bubbles and you will get the idea of what can be obtained from this algorithm.
This one provides a tamed and metallic sounding reverb as what you might expect from a spacecraft or an empty metal tank.
Auditorium is the most extended version of the original EAReverb core algorithm. It offers a wide range of possibilities from natural to artificial results.
It features “bright” and (perceived) “distance” parameters.
A mono to stereo algorithm featuring bright and modulated characteristics of some classic high quality reverb units.
A synchronisable reverse algorithm that provides the “whoosh” effect some are in quest of.
THREE OPERATION MODES
PRO Mode: gives access to all parameters and modules.
SE Mode: a limited but easy and fast alternative interface to the PRO mode.
POS Mode: provides specific tools that will help you to dynamically set the location of incoming sounds in the space simulated by EAReverb 2.
And there is much more to discover about this new plugin… A clear and very modern user interface, many functions to sculpt your ambiences and a ton of tiny details to control everything you can imagine.
So, is this new reverb plugin a good one ? From all the technical specifications it is undoubtedly a good tool for sound research. From the audio clips, it is sounding good but everyone tastes aren’t the same, you’ll be the only judges.
In this category of accessible plugins, EAREVERB should meet its targeted audience without much difficulties.
