Five classic plate reverb models. Infinite possibilities.
Super Plate replicates the distinctive sound character of five vintage electromechanical plate reverbs without the astronomical cost and burdensome weight of the originals. Its sophisticated algorithms provide lush, spacious effects while capturing a level of realism and versatility that is unsurpassed.
Exact replicas of the EMT 140, EMT 240, Audicon, Stocktronics RX4000, and EcoPlate III reverb devices form the foundation of SuperPlate. Any of the SuperPlate styles can be combined with its three distinct analog colouring types, Tube, Solid-State, and Clean. Infinite decay duration, integrated predelay, improved modulation controls, a full-featured EQ for precise tone shaping, and a special decay ducking option that modifies decay time to lessen overlap or build-up are just a few of its many contemporary digital features.

Pick Your Preamp
All plate reverbs use a pre-amplifier to drive the “voice coil” that turns electrical sound waves into the physical vibrations of a plate reverb device. Soundtoys have included two different preamp models in SuperPlate, Tube and Solid-State, along with a Clean mode – which can each be used in combination with any of SuperPlate’s styles.
The Tube mode is modeled on the original EMT V54 preamp that was used in the earliest EMT 140 plates and can be used to add a little (or a lot) of harmonic spice to your sound before it hits the reverb.
The Solid-State mode is modeled on the EMT 162 preamp that was used in later versions of the EMT 140. This model has a built-in compressor that can be used to help control and tame transients on their way into the reverb.
SuperPlate’s Clean mode strips out all preamp modeling and preserves the pure sound of the various plate models without any additional harmonic distortion or dynamics.
Let It Breathe
SuperPlate’s unique Auto-Decay feature shortens the decay time to a desired “target” setting when the input signal is above the adjustable threshold. This feature is crucial in keeping the sound clear and prevents punchy transients from being overpowered by excessive reverb tails. Combined with the recovery speed control, you can make your reverb breathe with the pacing of your music.
Tame Your Tail
SuperPlate’s built-in filters and EQ makes it easy to sculpt the reverb to fit your mix. The low-cut filter is essential to prevent excessive low-frequency energy from building up, and the high-cut filter can be used to help the reverb to blend in naturally with the original sound. The two parametric bands are super flexible and can be used to help tame mid range resonances or add high frequency sheen.
