Whenever he was asked how long it would take him he sort of said "as long as it takes". A good approach, if it is as good as the lite version was at its aim then it will be a very serious reverb product indeed. An ITB Lexicon 480L.
Worth waiting for? I've had the lite version for over a year I think, I bought it for what it was. A Hall reverb from the 480L.
I am no expert, I still think it's the richest reverb I've tried, but I don't know how to get the best out of reverb in general yet in a mix context. I am still learning.
The upgrade will be $300 IIRC for existing lite users. Steep compared to the competition, but still not expensive imo for what you are getting.
So maybe after this major part of the work is done, updates and so on may come along faster as Relab will have more time to do those things. It's just normal for people to spend their time on core of the product first, then take care of the details.
That's what I think anyway. I like this verb and till now only B2 has really made an impression on me besides this. And I still prefer this for halls. There is just a really classy & dense quality to it that doesn't feel fake like many other reverbs.
Always best to buy something for what it is at the time, nothing more because you never know, even the developer doesn't know what lies ahead of him.
