Reverb & Pro Tools

Currently, I am using a Pro Tools setup with an Apogee 800 as my interface. My only reverb is the Ren. Reverb from Waves which I am not feeling and I want to step it up to a outboard reverb that I can patch digitally to the 800.

Really what I wanted to do was get a Kurzweil Rumour and hook that up but the Rumour is S/PDIF digital in/out and the 800 is AES/EBU digital in/out.

My first question is... is there a way to make the Rumour happen in the digital realm?

I guess my second question is: If that doesn't work... what else would you recommend? What are my options?

Yes, AES to SPDIF converter will solve that issue. The Rumour sounds great, I had one and liked it so much I upgraded to the KSP8. For a short time I had both units in my studio and did some A/B listening. As far as I could tell they sounded virtually indistinguishable. In my opinion it's the best value in reverb out there.

Thanks for all the suggestions!

I ordered a Rumour and am checking out the different plugs mentioned as well.

Is there a AES/SPDIF converter box that someone can recommend? I have no idea how they stack up.

It has 1/4" in's and outs. I run mine though the fatso and then to the converter sometimes.

REVIBE is the most flexible digital reverb out there IMO

M-Audio CO3 offers SPDIF (coax + optical)-AES both ways conversion.
Works flawless, cheap.

classicverb for the powercore... almost as lush as a 480, sits perfectly in a mix, very flexible modulation, no hit on your cpu. have yet to try the new 6000 algo, looking forward to it.
