I'm just a couple of days away from getting my 3rd Bricasti M7.

If any PlugIn would do what the M7 does I would have saved a lot of money...

I tried a lot of plugs, have about 15 outboard reverbs, never use a single plug
for main reverbs .... occasionally for convenience reasons .....

I think the m7 is a incredible piece of gear and the price ist fully justified but.... the price tag on the remote control is just sick, way overpriced, did the R&D cost thaaaat mucho ?

My thoughts too. But I won't be able to resist to buy the system 1. It's way cooler

sometimes working in a small room has it's positive effects (of not needing a remote). regardless of the CR size, I want that box sitting really really close to the sweetspot. no need for a remote ;-)

Not able to recommend any specific patch though, because so many sound so d*mn good!
Hi unit7, How do u go about dumping the data of 2 m7 to the PT session... that i should be able to figure out.... actually, how do u go about the Midi connections (2 units) to the Computer?

Press and hold the EDIT button on the M10 (perhaps the same on an M7?), and you'll see the light at the TAP button light up indicating that the sys ex is sent. You record this data to a MIDI track in the DAW. After this procedure you should be able to see that something is recorded to the MIDI track, otherwise something's wrong w your connections/settings. Some DAWs also needs to have handling of sys ex enabled specifically.

Loading from DAW back to M7 - play the MIDI track where the sys ex data was recorded and the TAP light will light up indicating that sys ex is received.

It's MIDI data so you need a MIDI interface between the Bricasti and the computer. I guess it would be possible to connect the M7s in chain if you setup units w different MIDI channels. But I connected mine to two different ports on my MIDI interface to be sure not to mix things up when saving/reloading. And of course you have to connect both ins/outs. MIDI out on M7->MIDI in on interface and vice versa.

This and a few other neat MIDI functions described in the V2 manual, but this is the only one I use/know by heart.

Indeed. I'll take my 140 over an M7 for plate sounds any day. Even with the noise floor.

But the M7 would still be my first choice for halls and chambers.

I demoed a bricasti a while back. I was very impressed but only had so much cash for main reverb. I sent it back and got a Lex 480L. Lex remains king to me but if I had extra cash I would get Bricasti.

This is utter nonsense. PCM Lexicon I went through all presets and tried tweaking for hours and could not get 1 good sound out of it. Bricasti I went through all the presets and was tweaking for hours and could not get 1 bad sound out of it! 2c Aether and EQ Spaces sound thin and cheesy.

Unit7, Many thx for explaining thhe steps on details.. Needed to get a midi interface first then will try out the midi dump. Does holding the EDIT button on M10 dump both machines ?( if there are 2 m7m) to Protools ? Or needed to do the procedure twice?

I have all of those and the Tsar which is great too.I think Tsar is the best one.
still cant beat the M7
.also lots of hardware stuff..140,etc
for natural spaces hands down the bricasti is in a league of its own.

+ 1.
I have a 140 that has that magic randomness and huge swimming quality I can't get w/ anything else.
alti and tl space were a complete joke by comparison.
the bricasti wins for real and natural.

I have affixed a pair of piezos to my plate so that I have the original tube mono output as well as stereo. I like to plug the stereo pickups into my vintech 1272 for dark swirly chocolatey verbs, and sometimes I do a sort of LCR panning with the stereo and mono returns. Bright in the center, dark at the edges like a marshmallow bunny. I've tried, but I just can't duplicate this trick with plugins.

To my knowledge you can't do anything with more than 1 unit at a time from the remote. You have to dump twice.

Try the M7 plate side by side with WELL tuned 140 and you dont want to hear the M7 plate never again. But other than that, M7 rules.

I think that's a little harsh, certainly with a great stereo, solid state 140, you're going to use the 140..that kind of goes without saying doesn't it? But they are excellent to use in a mix and sound fantastic in their own right.

Anyway...we can discuss whether or not the Bricasti is great or not till the cows come home....

Shall we get back on track with the thread and offer up some settings/favourites for the OP to try?

Thanks to all you slutz that pointed me in the right direction

I love my M7. But I also love my UAD EMT250 and Lexicon PCM92. I even love my Lexicon LXP-1.

It all depends what sound you want.

Having said all that, I think the M7 is a MUST HAVE. The only thing I don't like about it, is that there are too many great sounds, and it is difficult to know which one is the absolute best. Of course, that should be the worse of problems.

I'm still waiting for mine. It arrived at my dealer and is waiting for other gear. I'll get the whole package together. Can't wait

You won't wonder why the remote costs what it does once you use it. It is nothing short of amazing and everything that a LARC from Lexicon isn't. The build quality is fantastic.

If there is one company that I wouldn't ever worry about getting your money's worth, it is Bricasti.

I just tried V2 at friend's place .
I don't know how to put it into words exactly
It's new reference reverb for me .
Once you get it you can delete ALL plugin reverbs you have.I
I'm very picky about reverbs ,for example i do not like TC reverbs ,
i do not like 960 l ,i like 224 and pcm 70 .
Convolution reverbs ,impulses ?
Not in the same league as this box .
And yeah that new nonlinear algo is amazing too

Sometimes hype is justified. And buying the "real deal" to attract clients even though there may be cheaper alternatives out there is a great way to convey to the artist that your serious. Sometimes spending that extra 200% to get 20% more quality/performance is worth it to some of us.
