Phoenix Verb was one of the debut plugins from Exponential Audio, whose founder Michael Carnes is the DSP wiz behind the PCM Bundle that we looked at in slide three. As such, this plugin demands to be taken seriously.
There's no denying that Phoenix Verb looks a tad clunky - but it's the sound that counts. Transparent and natural from the first presets that you try, the early reflections and tails from this plugin sit perfectly in the mix.
Features include a low- or high-pass filter on the reverb output, a huge range of presets that are suggested to you based on the keywords you punch in, and a Reverb Type slider which enables quick changes between Plate, Chamber and Hall modes without fully changing your preset.
Phoenix Verb really shines in quiet situations where you might expect to detect some graininess - and it's possibly the cleanest reverb we've ever heard.45 Stars
