    I am liking the sound of this plug just as much, if not better than Valhalla Vintage.

    They didn't just bought them, it was some kind of an agreement. They just took it and abandoned most of it. They act like corporate parasties tbh

    £4 worked out pretty good! And working fine in Monterey despite it stating:
    "Operating Systems
    • Mac: OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion - macOS 10.15"
    I like this as much as VVV so far, not quite Seventh Seven stuff but solid! Straight go-to in my toolbox now and cost less than a morning coffee.

    The maker of Exponential Audio, Michael Carnes (ex Lexicon superstar) just decided he was ready to retire, especially after a particular attractive offer from iZotope came his way, since his was largely a one man operation....marketing, tutorials, and all that, besides making some of the finest reverbs out there. R4 is very special in that it is quite superb for "sound design", and can be easily tweaked for regular tasks. The final version of Phoenix, Nimbus, is superb as well mainly for regular tasks. if there is a special offer for either of those, grab 'em. I still find an early version of Phoenix to be very satisfying most of the time. And if you do Surround or multi-channel, go for Symphony or 3D Symphony. Awe-inspiring richness in creating space. In my experience its only competitor is Liquidsonics Cinematic Rooms multi-channel.
    As far as I understand, iZotope has stopped developing the EA products (Michael is no longer doing reverbs), and seems to have "borrowed" some of his code for their own reverb, Neoverb, which I have not tried out.

    SO from what ive gathered is
    that micheal is doing Research @the Izotope Campus
    and izoptope are consolidating "their" reverbs, they figured the
    Best fully featured reverbs are Stratus 3D & Symphony 3D these you get with their bundles.
    And the rest will be integrated into their portifolio, and or expanded like Neo.
    and next will, imo, be a redesigned izotope Versions of the rest of Exponential catalogue

    it would be very strange they just drop mainstages like the R verbs and the Phoenix Verbs.
    They did write that M1 might not come to some plugs(is that why some of you cry abandoned (jk jk)
    but redesigned izotope Versions of the rest of Exponential catalogue seems more likley, again i dont know!

    maybe they will reduce the number of (R)eal/Natural Reverbs and Musical(Phoenix/Lexicon style) reverbs + 3D versions
    i mean thats what izotop do well, make complex interfaces, functional & easy on the eyes.

    but maybe Micheal was just a Maniac and even a big corp like izotope cant manage the whole catalogue
    Look at 2CAudio, 15 years or so and 3 Verbs:rofl:

    iZotope is just farming on discontinued plugins... You wanna know what's been discontinued for years before you buy it? Just check anything iZotope is selling for 10 dol.

    Michael has completely dropped any involvement with reverb programming or audio programming in general. He has completely shut that door, didn't tell me why, but is now doing other musical things where he lives, is in no way associated with iZotope or anybody else, much to the audio community's loss. We badly need more "Maniacs" like him, his work is top notch.
    I have no idea what iZotope plans to do with his products. To my ears they would be enormously foolish to drop them, but if they want to let folks have those verbs for $10, THAT is the bargain of the decade and maybe beyond. Get 'em while you can!
