GEAR 2021: We’ve seen plenty of emulations of the classic EMT 140 plate reverb, but Black Rooster Audio’s RO-140 plugin throws a few other bits of unnamed classic hardware into the mix, too. The idea is that you get the best of each of them in one package.
Using physical modelling, RO-140 lets you choose between six plate materials, and you can adjust the size of the plate, too. There’s a damping control that can be set to one of 10 positions, while the pre-delay - placed after the plate reverb emulation - enables you to set the amount of delay between the wet and dry signals.
• NAMM 2021 is cancelled, but we'll be covering all the big January gear announcements right here on MusicRadar.
There’s also a 3-band EQ and adjustable gain-staging at the input and output stages, and you can choose between three output modes (mono, mono to stereo and stereo).
RO-140 is available now from the Black Rooster Audio website priced at £63. It runs on PC and Mac in VST/AU/AAX formats.
