112dB Mikron, I'd get in bed with it.
Just spent an hour last night trying all the best reverbs in my modest cabinet -- the Logic reverbs, Blackhole, Xenoverb -- on a synth line before settling on AudioThing's miniVerb. It's really very context-dependent.
But generally Logic's Space Designer is my favorite.
Still searching for the ideal reverb setup, but right now for my scores (Goldsmith style) I use a combination of 3 Vienna Suite's Convolution Reverbs (Teldex impulses) for different instrument groups, trimmed to 1-1.2 seconds. Over it all there is an algorithmic reverb, sometimes UAD Lexicon 442 and sometimes Valhalla. I've had decent results with the Vienna Suite hybrid reverb as well.
- Valhalla DSP Room as Swiss army knife and for the long rich reverbs
- Wave Convolution IR1 (I imported some External Binaural IR files) for more realistic hall/chamber reverb (and to get depth of field (distant sound source effect))
GOLDSMITH YAY! +1 million
Got any examples of your stuff @xanderscores. Anything Goldsmith, I'm on.
Regarding reverbs, just using Reverberate 2. Does the job fairly well on its own...
Do you remember the connection between J. Goldsmith and Valhalla Room?
The parking garage in my condo complex is a great echo chamber. If I could only convince the HOA to let me wire a stereo pair of mics and a speaker up to my studio...I could finally use that Dante port on my interface!!!
Ambience. Yes... the free one by Magnus. Then it's all Vallhalla.
Cubase included reverbs and the Lexicon PCM .... .
Alien movie (J. Goldsmith's Music Score, names of Valhalla's algorithms : Narcissus, Nostromo, Sulaco, LV-426)
I've tried some fair amount of reverbs but end up using Valhalla Vintage $50 together with Lexicon MPX $30 (when on sale).
Lots of great reverbs out there now... my current favorites are Liquid Sonics Seventh Heaven and Relab LX 480. EW Spaces and Valhalla Room also get used quite a bit.
Seventh Heaven is great. Even the smaller one sounds fantastic to me. Also much love for Altiverb, B2 and Pro-R!
Big Sky for me, in the box there are so many that are great and no number one from my point of view.
To derail this topic a bit, I was looking for better ER impulses for my Samplemodeling stuff, and realized that I actually have quite a many which came with LASS.
If you have LASS, try out the impulses out with any loader and prepare for a very positive surprise! They can be found at ...\LASS Full 2 Library\Samples\LASS IRs in both 44.1 and 48khz.
And to derail it further, do you have an idea how to get such a thick and dark reverby wall of sound as in this track?
This is how far I've gotten using a reverb send with NI Replika set to "diffusion" mode, with lots of feedback and a multiband compressor after it to boost the low frequencies. I'm open to suggestions.
