'Beat It' vocal reverb is EMT 140 or EMT 250?

Slim chance it's a Lexicon 224?

EMT 250 seems right.....at least Bruce Swedien mentioned it for Billie Jean.

i wonder if that was specifically regarding the drums, seemed to tie into the previous paragraph...

though the more i listen the more i think it's the 250 on the voice in any case

thanks for that btw!


(and assinger, if you're actually bruce incognito passing along some info, then thanks bruce -- i noticed your first ever post on gearslutz was some fabulously niche information. and if you're not bruce then thanks whoever you are!)

I think it has been mentioned by Bruce before... Most of the Thriller record reverb is an early Ecoplate1 built by Jim Cunningham. The Ecoplates were brighter (stainless steel) but less diffused than an Emt 140 (which used some rare magic German cold rolled steel).

Me thinks it was the Echoplate II. Nice box, I got one for free.

So it's plate verbs on instrumentation, EMT 250 on vocals?

I think it's mostly Ecoplate on vox and drums for the whole record. I hear what sounds like a short 250 setting on the congas in PYT.

For getting an echoplate vibe digitally, just take a plate verb plugin, set the diffusion low, set the low pass all the way up at 20k or [off] ? and do very gentle 1.5 db shelf boost on high freqs either before or after verb?

busy figuring out how to implement this RTAS, I don't have UAD cards. any recommended plug? i know anything will work if made to, everything's pretty good, but there's probably something I don't know about
