    I have been doing a lot of searching, but I have not been able to find a 'go-to' reverb plugin. The best one I've found is Waves TrueVerb, which is nice, but I'm left wanting more. I'd appreciate if you could list your top 5 reverb plugins, and maybe why you like them.

    dude, you dont want anything than Valhalla for a goto reverb. For a serious reverb, no algorithmic/impulse reverb beats Nebula. That's it.

    Adobe Audition built in stuff, Maserati for a plug in. I think it's in Waves. That one tugs on your CPU a little, but has some very lush sounding presets.

    A do all/end all reverb? There are lots of perfectly fine sounding reverbs out there. Trust your ears. You know what they say about opinions....

    Can`t go far wrong with the 2C Audio plugs, Breeze and Aether.

    I also really like playing with Audio Damage EOS, just something about that verb that works for me.

    Happy reflecting. :wink:

    The darkest pit of my mind
    Valhalla plugins for reverb, delay, chorus and combinations of these is 90% of what I use... other 10% is mostly some weird VST plugins I picked up along the way, stuff like SignalDust plugins... and the best reverb is not a reverb but delay, actually. A short delay like VladG "Proximity".

    I couldnt live without " The Phunken " reverb

    also like.. Black Geese and Chamberline. Both have tasty tails and easy to use. :grooves:

    On a serious note, I like Reflektor and Live's Stock Reverb. :rofl:

    i really like the native intruments ones...RC24 and RC48, I use them 80% of the time basically

    my third to go is the masterverb from wave arts, which is pretty flexible (but a bit "clinical")

    fourth would be trueverb from Waves

    and once and a while I use breverb2 from Overloud...but i dont even have it installed atm...so it's really not that often!

    (i also like the reverbs from Nomad Factory's Magma..though i use em exclusively on guitar tracks)

    I like these because they are low CPU (figures in %total CPU usage on a i3-530 with HT, 4 virtual cores) : ReaVerbate (Reaper builtin) 0.3% , BREVERB2 0.6% , Toneboosters Reverb 1%.

    2C Audio's B2 is hands down my favorite. Perfect for orchestral, but also great for sound design, rock, and vocals. Valhalla is great too, and lighter on resources. But when I tried out B2, I hadn't been so immpressed about a reverb plugin since the first time I fired up Altiverb (which has unfortunately seen better days, for most uses).

    Algorithmic: Lexicon, Valhalla
    Convolution: Altiverb

    Do you guys really like Valhalla better than the Lexicon plugs?
