    Would love to know if anybody is using it on orchestral samples.

    +1, would love to hear any personal experiences with this plugin. Valhalla and Spaces fill my reverb needs pretty well right now, but I love BX stuff, particularly how they hand M/S. Definitely looking for an excuse to pick this guy up

    Haven't tried it, although I'm not sure the MS functionality is as compelling as it might have been when this plugin first came out. It seems to me that you could replicate this functionality by placing an MS-capable plugin right after it (Pro-Q3 or something like that).

    But I'd also be interested to hear what people think of the sound of this reverb (the quality of the algorithm).

    Hi
    A reverb - I'm not saying it for the first time - can be used for a variety of tasks. Maybe it should
    A) ... move instruments into the depth of a certain room
    B) ... add a nice, airy, spatial and natural sounding tail.
    C) ... adding a bit of reverb to a single voice or an instrument.
    D) ...?

    For my own music productions I need reverbs, which can solve tasks A) and B).
    That's why BX_RooM/S has never been used for such a task.

    You are stating, categorically, bx_rooMS cannot be used for these tasks ????

    Hi sostenuto
    Of course I could use the tool for that, but I have reverbs that can solve task A) and B) (see above) a lot better together with orchestral music (with dry samples).
    To be fair: The plug-In is used in the demo videos mainly on instruments such as drums, guitars and vocals, where it obviously does its job very well. But that's not the application I usually need reverbs for.
    I would try the PlugIn for free, if it can solve your own tasks well! Then you have clarity for your case.

    Understand. I have several capable Reverb VST as well, yet today's opportunity for bx_rooMS @ $29. offered some capabilities I was not certain I had, and little risk in taking advantage.
    No worries, all is good.

    I took pretty much the entire 14 days to figure out BX RooM/S. Or rather to decide to purchase it.

    Out of the gate this is a very cool reverb, with some interesting quirks. You could get the same results (well similar anyway) using your favorite reverb, and a few auxes, or an M/S utility, and probably other ways. But it's all here.

    My first impression was that it would a great tool for placing tracks/instruments, and it can do that, but I don't think that is its greatest strength. It is also constrained by any room tone or baked in reverb and reflections.

    But I bought it anyway<G>... it can do some really cool things to tracks I've recorded (I tend to record with close microphones because I don't have a great sounding space right now.)

    I also use it a lot for electronic music, or even synths in tracks that use conventional instruments.

    I'm still learning, but I consider it to be more of a sound design tool than a conventional reverb. Dirk and company may not agree, but even at that I think it was worth the price before the steep discount.
