Soundtoys releases Little
Plate reverb free until November 22nd
07th November 2017
Soundtoys has announced the
release of Little Plate, a new plug-in offering the
lush sound of plate reverb with a modern twist. It's
free through November 22.
To create their first dedicated
reverb plug-in, Soundtoys collected plate reverbs
from around the world, including five original EMT
140s, which are still considered the finest example
of the plate reverb sound. After months of repair,
tuning, and careful listening, their engineers
modeled the rich and spacious sound of their
favorite plate from this collection. Then some
distinct and modern twists were added, including a
modulation switch and infinite reverb tails.
The original EMT 140, with its
mechanical and possibly asbestos-clad damping plate,
could vary its reverberation decay time from 1 to 5
seconds. Little Plate offers a broader range of
decay times: as short as half a second for super
tight ambience effects, to truly cavernous extended
decay times up to infinity for unique and creative
frozen reverb sounds. When Mod is switched on,
chaotic variations are used to add life and movement
to the reverberation effect. The Low Cut and Mix
knobs help to dial in the perfect reverb sound
quickly and easily.
Little Plate is free through
November 22. After the introductory period, Little
Plate's regular price will be $99.
