Valhalla Vintage verb OR..ERS Dimension D?

Spoiled for choice again arghhh, I'm really wanting some great "Virtual" 80's outboard - V vintage verb looks and sounds awesome as does ERS dim D, I'm wanting some nice 80's fx I can send my vox n synths/drums to - not sure Ableton stock verb n chorus can cut it.

Help!!

FWIW, I love the Valhalla Vintage Verb--such great modulation. I have it and Valhalla Room and they compliment each other well.

Why "or" if they don't do the same thing? Valhalla Ubermod is the plug-in that's oriented toward modulation effects like the Dim D. Vintage Verb is oriented toward reverbs and certainly isn't expensive to buy it and something else. ERS's vintage style reverb is the empty 250

When it comes to emulating old effects of course it depends if you want to come as close as possible to a now classic unit or just want that type of thing with perhaps more options.

I'd definitely say Valhalla gives you value and more options. ERS gives you emulations of one specific unit

The Dimension D was a "subtle" chorus where you hear more of an added stereo dimensionality than typical chorus modulation per-se. Never heavy and swirling. Definitely not a room reverb or anything like that. Not exactly an all purpose tool, can't use it on many things, but it really adds something special to synth pads and some instruments.

Hijacking this 'cause starting a new thread over a fine distinction seems a little pointless: Can anyone draw a clear distinction between ValhallaRoom and ValhallaVintageVerb? I like VRoom, but it's not always the most organic plug for my tastes (a bit too much high end spray at times); does VintageVerb skew warmer and "realer?" I want to want to buy it ;-)

I've been contemplating buying the Dim D for a bit now. It might have to happen soon!



Anyone know what kind of chorus is on this intro guitar?

I'd say that VintageVerb is warmer and faker, but I'm biased. I'd try the demo to see if it works for you.
