spring reverb plug ins

Post by 51RIV5 » Sat Jan 15, 2005 6:16 pm

Excellent thread, thanks for the information. Really helped shatter a lot of myths but giving loads of inspiration to try different ideas & ways of trying to reproduce the classic spring reverb & tape delays digitally - been trying without much success for ages. <BR> <BR>Can't remeber who suggested it but I found the LUXONIX LFX-1310 - combining the spring reverb & phaser - was awesome. <BR>That & The Interruptor's bionic delay with sends & feedback controlled by midi controller box - immense. <BR> <BR>Check out <A HREF="http://www.versionist.com/music.php?id=3934" TARGET="_top">http://www.versionist.com/music.php?id=3934</A> <BR> <BR>tune called "Sprung". My attempt at trying to recreate that reverb. <BR>Delays & Sirens courtesy of Bionic Delay & DubSiren, Thanks Interruptor, incredible plugins.

Spring reverb emulation using several plugins &#40;in Fruityloops&#41;: <BR> <BR>I've found a way of creating fairly realistic springreverb sounds in fruity loops using a normal reverb plugin, a filter and a controller-plugin with a LFO &#40;Peakcontroller&#41; &#43; a speakersimulator. &#40;mda combo&#41; <BR>The point is to make the lfo, set on fairly rapid speed&#40;near the fastest setting&#41;, control the filter cutoff to create the crazy twang sound of the springs. I won't elaborate the settings any more than this, just tweek the settings until you are satisfied. I'm sure this is possible in other sequencers too. Just try it out!

Native Instrument's "Guitar Rig" has really awesome spring reverb. I own a vintage Premier 90 Spring Reverb Unit yet I mostly use Guitar Rig because the emulation is so great sounding. It doesn't do so well on really large snare hits sometimes, but 90% of the time its perfect. Worth a try with the demo version. www.nativeinstruments.com

I tried it - the Guitar Rig spring is decent in its own right &#40;and guitar rig in general very good&#41;, especially for general reverb ambience on a guitar, but for the classic plop on a percussive sound it doesn't have it for me. Not awesome by any means. <BR> <BR>Certainly worth a try of the demo version though.

OMG!!! Thank you Duncan. <BR> <BR>I have been waiting for someone &#40;anyone?&#41; to do a Spring Reverb for ages. <BR> <BR>I bookmarked this thread 3 years ago, and I've been occasionally revisiting since then. It was pure chance that I happened to looked at it again today. <BR> <BR>Great work! Much appreciated.

And now that this thread is 6 (SIX!) years old a swedish company called Softube comes along and releases the first commercially available stand-alone spring reverb plugin:

http://www.softube.com/spring_reverb.php

This thing even has the "kick the spring" and "spring tension" controls we have been dreaming about..

A demo version is available. Has anybody tried it out yet?

There are also some audio demos - Most of which are using non-percussive guitar signals which do not help much to judge whether the plug-in does what a dubber needs.
One demo track however features muted guitar picking. The typical spring wobble can be heard quite clearly ==>
http://www.softube.com/spring_reverb/Sc ... bDemo3.mp3

price: 99$ (I guess these are US$)

Just a few days after Softube also SoundFonts.it have released a spring reverb plugin which they call "Type 4". I tried out the demo and it does sound far better than previous spring sims i heard. (I did not try the Softube one though because their demo can only be used after buying a 40$ usb dongle :disgust2: )
In comparison to the "Type 4" plugin Duncan Parsons' free beta version plugs sound somewhat less realistic but more boingy and less predictable. Putting the two plugs in series creates a nightmarish spring disaster which is quite inspiring.
The price is very reasonable at 19 Euro (14 Euro introductory offer until Sep-30 2008)

download demo or buy here:

the "Twang reverb" amp on GuitarRig is the best spring reverb vst ive heard (so far! Ive not checked all the ones in this thread yet). It gives a nice twang at the beginning and vibrato effect. Works very well on snare hits and guitar skanks.

See a thread i made on GuitarRig here:
