Its been a good year. At least if we are talking about reverbs.
We have just stumbled over this thing : Shimmer
Its by the same guy who made this nifty little thing: EOS
And it sure looks and sounds great. Love the way this guy thinks. He seems to have a nice sense of aesthetic.
And then there was the superbly nice Lexicon PCM reverb. A bit on the expensive side, but when you consider ( hear ) the algorithms and realize that you may use as many instances as your hardware can muster, simultaneously, it really is a bargain. Compare it with the price of the hardware, yes ? Which really is just the same algorithms with an added AD / DA stage…
Another Lexicon clone / emulation / hommage also emerged during the summer. LX 480
We haven’t really got the chance to test this properly, but the initial impression is very very good.
Favourite reverb at the moment ? Bricasti All though its a bit hard to justify the investment…why couldn’t they also make this as a plug in ?
