    My template reverbs:
    • ER : UAD Ocean Way Studio
    • Tail: UAD Lexicon 224 & Waves Manny Marroquin Reverb
    • Buss sends: 2CAudio B2 (Does most off the overall reverb)

    I've found myself only using Pro-R, Seventh Heaven and Blackhole these days since my last post. Not feeling the need to try anything else right now which I should enjoy while it lasts...

    While these are my go-to’s...

    2C Audio B2
    Lex Random Hall
    NI R48
    UA Lex 224
    Slate Verbsuite Bricasti M7
    Apple Matrix Reverb
    Custom impulses in Space Designer

    ...I have no favorite, as it’s all source-dependent. One thing might sound great through one verb and awful through another. I’m extremely picky about reverb though so I’m rarely happy to just slap any reverb on something. To me it’s a crucial part of sound design and your overall production value.

    I’m loving Valhalla Room and Altiverb at the minute.

    Spaces, but both Valhalla reverbs are really nice.

    Someday I'll splurge on Altiverb.

    I responded earlier in this thread but things have changed. Fabfilter's Pro-R and Spaces are now in my templates alongside Vintageverb.

    Pro-R, VintageVerb/Room/Shimmer, and for a bit of sci-fi-fi fun, Blackhole. When the next job comes in, I'll plunge into the chasms of Altiverb, for sure. It really seems like we have a consensus here, or have we formed some sort of echo chamber?

    Valhalla Room and Vintage Verb are my favourite all-rounders. I have at least 3 or 4 instances of different sizes / decays in every template. They sound great straight away, and they have the highest quality to money ratio of anything I've heard.

    Eventide's UltraReverb is surprisingly good, especially the presets. BlackHole is fantastic for the weird stuff. I enjoy the pitch shifting on Valhalla Shimmer for synths, guitars, and lonely pianos.

    I don't remember but it's very expensive and has some shiny parts.
