« Gritty in a good way »Publié le 08/04/11 à 14:08
As with all D16 software I have used, this is solid as a rock. No crashes, no hiccups and switching presets is almost instantaneous. The performance for this plugin is sort of interesting. I have compared this to other plugins I use and it seems to me that this one has more of a sharp gritty tinge to it. I feel that is what D16 is all about with there plugins, bringing some dirtiness to the party. I like that, but I must admit that when I reach for a Reverb, I usually want something more ethereal and warm. But, this does have its place (especially in some gritty electronica tracks). I have been using this plugin off and on for about 4 months.
What I like most about this unit is it's character. Overall I use other reverb plugins more but this one is it's own beast. Use it on a stereo drum track to get that "Gorrillaz" type sound or use it on a morphing pad to get that dirty house feel. What I don't like about it is my general complaint about D16 plugins, it's too darn small. I paid something like $50 or $55 for it and I am happy with that. The last thing I wanted was another Reverb plugin that sounded like Aether or Altiverb (I love those plugins so I don't need another that sounds just like them) so I am glad I chose this one. If you want some grit and dirt in your reverb, then I would say the precision and quality of this plugin is very good. I have used Aether, Altiverb, Ratshack reverb (reminds me of this plugin but this one has more character) and many others and this one stands out as its own sound. Yes, I enjoy having this in my arsenal when I need it so I would buy it again.
