just listened to your demo mike. the reverb is rather disappointing. does not sound like a spring to me. <BR>the free dub box plug-in was closer to what i think a spring must sound like. <BR>ok.. the wait for the real spring plug-in is not over yet, maybe one day..
Daniel, as i've said..to me it's 'apple and orange'.... even if orange may sort of look like (sound like <IMG SRC="http://www.interruptor.ch/cgi-bin/discu ... /happy.gif" ALT=":)">) an apple it will never can come close... <BR>Also to make a real compare analizis you need to send exactly the same sample through real long spring reverb unit , then through this plug in - and hear the difference... <BR> <BR>The plug in is pretty good thou for what it is...allots of good reverbs, and interface is nice and easy to use... <BR> <BR>later, <BR>/M ZEE aka Dr ZEE
You need virtual stomach to digest virtual oranges... lol <IMG SRC="http://www.interruptor.ch/cgi-bin/discu ... /happy.gif" ALT=":)"> <BR> <BR>/mz
hi <BR> <BR>just thought I'd add that the Spring Reverb algorithm from the PSP EasyVerb has now been released as a seperate FREE plugin called PSP SpringVerb. <BR> <BR>the catch is that it's only available on the Computer Music Magazine cover CD: <BR> <BR><A HREF="http://www.computermusic.co.uk" TARGET="_top">http://www.computermusic.co.uk</A> <BR> <BR>it first featured in issue 68, and is there again in the current issue (69). they may add it to their library, which means that it will be in every future issue, but I have no idea about this. <BR> <BR>CPU usage is also acceptably low for me in FL Studio 4.5 under Windows 98SE. compared to SIR running a spring reverb impulse, it's minute. <BR> <BR>if you want a simple, straight-up Spring Reverb plugin for your digital dubs, this is surely the best yet.
Like mentioned I will return with a test, up <BR>against a RE-201 and Spring-King, I actually <BR>did bye the hole magazine just to get this <BR>plug, It´s sounds nice but it´s far from any <BR>spring-sound, that is my first impression at <BR>least, a little bit disapointing I have had <BR>some better expectation due to their "piano- <BR>verb" that acttually shows what PSP are able <BR>to when it comes to non-linear algoritems <BR> <BR>HM
Going back to Reaktor Sessions - I've got Reaktor Sessions, and as good as it is, the spring reverb emulation isn't much good, it doesn't really get close to the real thing (it is reminiscent of a spring reverb, but I won't be using it).
thanks for the info, my test is canceled, <BR>it would be wasted time, in short PSP did <BR>not come up with any breaking new plug, as <BR>reaktor did´nt either, everything is as it <BR>used to be, spring-king is nice, but mike <BR>proves also that just getting an tank and <BR>insert to the desk might evt. be just as <BR>good,...... <BR> <BR>HM
Hi all, check out <A HREF="http://www.simulanalog.org/" TARGET="_top">http://www.simulanalog.org/</A>. they have a free PlugIn Pack. The Guitar amp simluations JCM 900 and Rednef Twin offer spring reverb. <BR> <BR>If anybody knows some really(!) good(!!!) VST plugs (Windows) for early refelctions, please let me know. Thanks ! <BR> <BR>Finn
the amplitube plug in/ <BR>a really interresant plug in unfortunatly not for his "spring verb" emulation (hahaha mutch better buy a real one ,the cheapest would be better than all emu)but this is a relly good amp simulation for guitar,bass(controlling input level for sub furious settings ;) ,organ .......even the a "too clean" snare.. <BR>the reverb ,delay parametric eq can bring an interresant color too <BR>he eats a lot off memory but i think it s the only one i know really usefull for roots dub style

I recently tried out the "acoustic mirror" a convolution reverb (like SIR) that comes with Sound Forge. It is sold with a library of impulse responses which also contains a small selection of spring reverbs. <BR>It sounds much better than what I expected based on the linearity/nonlinearity considerations made earlyer. <BR> <BR>Here are two examples: <BR> <BR><A HREF="http://www.interruptor.ch/audio/BDnatural1.wav"> bass drum clean</A> <BR><A HREF="http://www.interruptor.ch/audio/springguitamp1.wav"> bass drum treated with impulse response "Spring Guitar Amp 1"</A> <BR><A HREF="http://www.interruptor.ch/audio/oldanalogsynth.wav"> bass drum treated with impulse response "Old Analog Synth"</A> <BR> <BR>Since hearing this I think convolution reverbs can really be helpful for imitating a spring!
These examples work quite well in SIR as they are (you just need to cut out the lower frequencies, although I was getting unusual latency) . <BR>All we need now is some Spacexpander samples.
Greetings <BR> <BR>Well, I know Voxengo Oldskool Verb from <A HREF="http://www.voxengo.com/freevst/" TARGET="_top">http://www.voxengo.com/freevst/</A> it is very simple but its sound differs from other digital reverb plugins <BR> <BR>And there is Revalver from Alien Connections, it is guitar effects synth actually, but has reverb effects
PC users are more lucky to find spring-rev simulations i guess. As mac user, i prefer AMPLITUBE, ALTIVERB, REASON,....but i didn't found a good one yet. <IMG SRC="http://www.interruptor.ch/cgi-bin/discu ... rt/sad.gif" ALT=":(">
Those samples provided sound pretty good for spring simulations, I'll have to try out some of these mentioned plugins. Presently, I'm using a analog NEI Spring Reverb unit as well a pulled spring tray from a Hammond. I'm happy with both, but could probably use a computer plugin for portability at times, even just get a feel of how something sounds with sping reverb. Too bad you couldn't kick your computer to get these springs to rattle a bit, probably not advisable.
