Sooo many reverbs but which one would you prefer for orchestral use?

I recently bought Valhalla Room & its now my go to! Although sometimes there will be some kind of metallic hiss on the release, but for the most part that's not noticeable.

I have a hardware Bricasti and Seventh Heaven, and while they are close, the Bricasti hardware most definitely sounds more alive and animated than Seventh Heaven. However, I recently got Exponential Audio's Symphony 3D reverb and I've decided to use that instead of the Bricasti on a score I'll be delivering next week. I found that with Symphony it was very easy to virtually match my favorite Bricasti preset, which is their Mechanics Hall. The Symphony can sound alive and vibrant and adds a lot of dimension to the music, just like the Bricasti. And now I don't have to always do a real-time bounce, and I have surround.
Very interesting! I just bought this plugin myself. Care to elaborate on how you recreated the "Bricasti-sound" using Symphony-plugin?

I must be the only person on the planet not in love with Valhalla. I have the room verb and it really didn't compare to anything I was using. The company name is so cool and I want to like it so much, but every time I end up taking it off and using something else.

I currently use the lexicon random hall and the lexicon plate (on non-orchestral instruments I put into the orchestra I really like how they fit with the plate verb) 98% of the time, occasionally eventide blackhole when I need something a bit different and out there. I can't really see anything replacing them unless a tc6000 or bricasti falls into my lap or altiverb goes on sale at some insane price one day that makes me jettison all knowledge that my plugins are doing everything I need them to do already.

I don't use it anymore, but I got the H-verb from waves years ago and for a very long time it was my go to for all things verb. I never hear anyone mention, but it was great and served me very well until I started investing more money other things.

i had 3 Valhalla products a few years ago.

like you, i tried to like them back then, but they just didn't do it for me.

i sold V Plate and V Shimmer, kept V Room for some reason - it faded into my folder structure.

as i mentioned earlier, since switching DAWs recently, i have been going through all my plugins and libraries.

i threw V Room into my master template FX folder for completeness, tried it on some tracks.

fresh ears: i like it.

mind/ear connection changes over time and with experience i suppose.

I am going to through one in here that many do not even know exists. It's part of the Relab subscription: VSRS24 is an emulation of the TC6000...High quality reverb(s). https://relabdevelopment.com/product/vsr-s24/
When comparing different algo reverbs I own like fabfilter, breeze2, lexicon I usually end up with this one. Unfortunately pretty cpu hungry for my old rig so I use just 1 instance with sends but it sounds simply best to my ears. B2 comes close and has been my got to before but it’s even more hungry with the good sounding presets so vsrs24 is the winner for me in the moment especially after their upgrade some month ago which made browsing for presets much more enjoyable.

It seems like there is a lot of people that lean toward actual reverb plugins. Even in that famous Spitfire "Reverb shootout", they were comparing a lot of reverbs mentioned here.

And I do as well, mostly defaulting to TCC plugin, or maybe Spaces II.

But every now and then, you'll see someone mention something more elaborate ... like MIR PRO.

Why do you think more people don't use those types? Because of the expense? Or the fact you have to load them on all tracks of use?

I've been really exploring with interest things like Eareverb 2, or MIR PRO. But for every 1 thread here about them, it seems there are 10x that for plugins by Fabfilter, TCC, Spaces, etc.
