Introduced in the 1950s, plate reverbs have been a fixture of recorded music ever since. Used most prominently in the ‘60s and ‘70s by pioneering bands, including the Beatles and Pink Floyd, Abbey Road Studios’ original reverb plates – four EMT 140 units – were first installed in 1957 to complement the fixed reverberation times of the studios’ echo chambers.
These historic Abbey Road plates have been used on countless seminal pop, rock, classical and film recordings over the years, and continue to be used in all kinds of audio production to this day. Waves has now created meticulous models of these stunning and unique-sounding units, individually modeling the harmonic distortion of both the drive and output amps as well as the individual plate/damper behaviors.

Eigenständiger Sound. Leider aber eine nicht unerhebliche CPU Auslastung. Nur für schnelle Rechner zu empfehlen. Der Klang ist sehr gut. Allerdings ist das Klangspektrum etwas eingeschränkt und daher sehr speziell. Ein richtiger Plattenhall eben. Gut für Gesang.
Sehr guter Plate Reverb, der als Ergänzung zu Convolutions nicht fehlen darf.
This is great plate reverb. A little CPU heavy, but sounds excellent!
