Released in 1957, this plate reverb quickly became a studio essential, and now you can have a “circuit accurate” emulation of it in your DAW for nothing. Rev Plate-140 recreates the original’s vacuum tube preamp, and promises a full-bodied sound and a lush tail. It’s designed for use on vocals and for adding glue and space to your mix.
Arturia has also taken the opportunity to add a new feature or two: specifically, adjustable pre-delay and a high-pass filter on the input. There’s also an integrated chorus and a post-reverb EQ.
Rev Plate-140 runs on PC and Mac in VST/AU/AAX formats. You’ll need to sign up for an Arturia account if you want to download it, but this is a full version that’s totally free. Just make sure you register before 25 December, as this is when the offer expires.
