Software Reverbs reviews
The reverb from heaven? - LiquidSonics Seventh Heaven Professional Review
The second version of Reverberate, LiquidSonics' flagship product, completely blew us away with its Fusion-IR technology because it actually provided an unheard-of flexibility and audio quality in the small world of convolution reverbs.
A Powerful Ambience - A review of the PSP 2445 Digital Reverberator plug-in
