We auditioned REVerence against QL Spaces, UAD EMT140 and Ozone (which we used on our CD).
We tried out all on plate with 2s reverb time for starters. REVerence sounded warmer, more encompassing, though Spaces and the EMT140 weren’t bad. Ozone wasn’t too bad.
With a small room:
- REVerence again sounded warmer
- Spaces was a bit clinical
- EMT140 not applicable
- Ozone ‘Room’ was not anywhere near as good.
With many of the other presets, REVerence won us.
We will now use REVerence as the primary reverb, but may get Spaces as it has some useful impulses among its more exotic - caves, forest, etc - though we would prefer it if some were supplied with REVerence.
