you should first tell what you're working with: osx or windows ??

 

if your on pc, you have like millions of choices. on osx you have less less choices.

 

try this for algorythmic: http://magnus.smartelectronix.com/#effects

TAL stuff is awesome too (plate reverb - both osx and pc): http://kunz.corrupt.ch/products/tal-reverb

 

try this for convulsion (pc only for the free "LE" version): http://www.liquidsonics.com/software_reverberate_le.htm

Coowl, I was actually thinking about writing the very same thread this morning !

 

What I use is SIR, a good (IMO!) convolution reverb which exists in a free version (which has a latency that won't allow you to process sounds in real time but you can use it as much as you want on each track of your project which doesn't need real time rendering).

 

That said I'm tired of using the same impulse responses every time so I'd like to try something else ; I think I'll get TAL because I've heard of it several times. Also I'm open to any other suggestion (if you know good impulses library my ears are all opened !).

 

PS : a friend of mine told me to try epicverb but I can't manage to use it properly :(

but it's supposed to be powerfull so you might want to check it

Ambience!

 

This is pretty much my favourite free reverb, my favourite reverb for that matter...(not that I've done too much looking around at reverbs!)

 

It is very nice and he has recently removed the nag-screen so it is pretty much no longer donation-ware :)

 

Does everything I need and is much better than Ableton Live's built-in reverb (although that still has it's uses!) as I find Live's reverb begins to slightly fall apart on longer decay times and get a bit sketchy and grainy, Ambience does this perfectly imo so I find it great for huge roomy ambient sounds (sounds as good as Logic's Space Designer imo)

 

EDIT: Just realised that arbee beat me to it!

Yeah Ambience is amazing. I use it on everything in Reaper.

Most importantly it's nice on the CPU compared to many reverb plugins!

oh yeah so everything in this thread is pretty cool (except for pc only stuff cause I haven tried it, lol).

 

and if you want to spend a few bucks, just look at valhalla stuff: http://www.valhalladsp.com/

 

it's pretty cheap and amazing algorhytmic reverbs. the room is awesome and I'm absolutely in love with his shimmer reverb.

 

amazing stuff ! and I know that since it's not free I'm off-topic, but I just love to spread valhalla love everywhere !

epicverb is pretty cool but sounds a touch metallic with some settings imo

tal reverb2 is great because it's very simple in design but still has a wide range of sounds

 

you should also check out mverb and silverspike audio made a great reverb plugin too (room machine)

Looks very similar to Classic Reverb which I use and is very cpu friendly.
