Transatlantic Plate Reverb
Rare Signals introduces The Transatlantic Plate Reverb – modeled from two completely independent plates.
One was hand-made in Nashville in the early 70’s and the other is the legendary EMT plate from Bearsville Studios that is also permanently residing in the Sonic Circus studio!
Rare Signals presents a new standard in Plate Reverb plug-ins modeled from the finest analog plates of Europe and The U.S.
With 24 independent decay settings, and reverb tails that remain un-manipulated, preserving the natural sustain and also stereo spread of the actual analog giants. (Available in AAX, VST, and Audio Units.)
About The Reverb Tails
How reverb tails travel through space.
There is something very special about the way a perfectly tuned plate decays. However, some plugin manufacturers manipulate the impulses in the modeling process to make sense mathematically in a certain user interface. This manipulation allows for decay control settings to be precise (1 sec., 1.5 sec., 2 sec. and so on). When dealing with an analog plate in the real world, decay times are hard to predict, let alone make perfectly even (value-wise).
Manipulating reverb tails to fit conveniently into a user interface just sounds wrong (literally). You’ll notice that the decay times on the Transatlantic Plate Reverb reflect the true decay time of any particular setting. When switching between the EU/US modes, the current decay setting will jump to the closest value in the new mode. The result in sound quality far outweighs the ability to select even numbers on a dial.
