I for one can't imagine anything better so I'm not surprised Casey is spending years of development on the new version in order to top something no one else hasn't even nearly touched..
Dont know much about history ... Lala

This butt kissing is pathetic.

Bricasti is good, but...
No butt kissing here Old chap, I'm just looking for new effects devices in 2016-20 period as what's being offered now is pretty slim, or rehashed designs etc and as most (Top Flight Engineers) are using 35-15 year old units and as to plug in's etc. If you love them well enjoy and keep them! I loathe the damn things and vapourware alongside the Slate/Eventide pay per month Crap is just gouging money from people, talk about SCAM! Phucking hell I don't even own a Bricasti, though I give props to Casey and the team for making a damn unit! Though a Vintage Bricasti type recreation now that's my kind of thing! Seriously a unit that creates those Vintage type sounds and Algos would free up 15 plus racks, that would be very nice!

No worries. All of my wood is behind one arrow. Moving the technology forward. I have no plans to revisit the past.

I too look forward to the future of reverberation. We are fortunate to have some of the best minds ever developing this stuff, I trust they will do a bang-up job.

We already have all the older pieces now, no need to clone them. If you do, go buy Slate, etc, and enjoy the imitations.

Lol....just how many Slate Microphones have you fixed Jim?
I mean, whoa! That long body U47 must take serious work? Or don't they understand you work in Analog not Algor-Log? Lol....!

This is so refreshing to read from a manufacturer.

It seems that in the ever-expanding world of high end gear, so much emphasis is placed on recreating the past.

Sound like Abbey Road!

Sound like Olympic Studios!

Sound like "Let it Bleed!"

You can be Tony Visconti!

You can sound like Glyn Johns!

Tired of it.

How about sounding like nobody else? How about sounding like the future, not the past?

Right........Because near every DAW user like you and a ten Buck USB microphones uses Wav. files in some simulation of a simulation of....a simulated simulator Plug In?

Erm..who cited H3000 or SP2016's?

Well as an experiment, nobody took my head off for the criticism, or maybe they just ignored me and are living in their own music.

Casey is a rockstar, and that's the fringe benefits of making good products.

I hope this is the model for good economics. No every endeavor is gonna be a complete cash cow, but I hope that every great producer gets their due compensation. People who make great gear should get that much recognition. Places like Gearslutz are apart of that: A future with a just economy. Bricasti on here rocking it.

And Bricasti may just become a truly GREAT frickin all-around company.

I'm not quite sure why certain people feel the need to defend and/or force opinions and opines - alongside "Fan Boi" type tactics, it's just a Damn reverb unit, nothing more nothing less and compared to Quantec or Eventide and it's certainly NOT the only game in town, though whatever? I mean seriously it shows very old jaded and near prejudiced views from some people posting, and we are talking First world problems not Dash etc. look the Bricasti is certainly a great unit, though it doesn't cover every single Reverberation requirement, nothing does nor do Eventide cover every time domain effect, look at their Plug in's total nightmare with zero mojo etc.

Often it's not the Bricasti though a Moog Fooger, Rev-7 and PCM-41 alongside Roland RSS-10 Spring Reverb that cracks the walnut, there are plenty of spaces where the Bricasti just doesn't work and is either too good, too bright too new and far to Hi-Res, just like some shots are better in colour other require and need Black and white! Certainly I'm not taking anything away from the Bricasti it's a beatiful sounding unit, though sometimes it's Hamburger required not the finest marbled "Kobo Filet or Waku Beef? And Version 3.......? I'd be prepared for a long, 18 month plus wait!

Sheesh?

With Lexicon dying on the vine, I trust Bricasti with the future of reverberation.

Any news/status update on V3???
Old 14th October 2016

I love the M7, may God speed V3.

More importantly to me right now, while enjoying V2, is the M200.

I would like to see dual mono/stereo capability on delays for the M200 but that is a nit.

I know it will be awhile yet on both and look forward to updates as development progresses.

What a long slow trip it has been.

V3 has two levels of service initially. The first item will be the M200.

We will have this for the next AES. It is old school rock and roll in every sense. Analog only. Crazy analog processing including full RMS compression leading to soft saturation then on to hard clipping. Low frequency harmonics before compression from class A fet based circuit. Front panel input/mix/output sets the gain staging for clean to crunch. Zero latency dry path. Analog Abbey Road filter at the push of a button on any preset.

An eight voice varispeed section using old 16 bit SAR ADCs with arbitrary clock gen on each one.

Independent V3 reverb and Delay settings on chunky red old school 7 segment displays.

Three channels of IO including independent mono out for creative use or driving mono arrays at the back of a live setup with stereos up front. Independent mono in can be used along with stereo ins or stand alone and can drive all three outs or just the mono out for an over the top mono reverb or as an insert to your Mesa Boogie amp.

The V3 algorithm will light up the M200 in new ways that will shape new uses of the effect.

But, the real incarnation of V3 will come in the form of the M7 upgrade board. It will be after the M200 because we are tailoring a huge FPGA to work with a SHARC array that will just end the need for new reverbs in my life time. Can't even begin to describe the sonics that will be available. Suffice to say I don't imagine even seeing the bar this will set.

So, the M200 by next US AES, The M7 upgrade just after that by 3 to 6 months

The plan is that the M7 upgrade will be a user installable DSP board replacement that will be for cost. We will raise the price of the V3 M7s to match the cost of today's M7 plus the cost of the upgrade, so that all of our customers who have made us are financially protected.

Now I am off to a fundraiser for a low power FM radio station in Belfast Maine that needs to get off the ground before the end of January in order to keep the FCC license. Anybody with experience in this area please pm me, as this is all new to me!

Thanks for the descriptions Casey. Sounds innovative, absolutely FORWARD thinking, and awesomely cool. Look forward to next years AES!!!!! My prediction? The M200 will be the raging buzz of AES 2017.

(THREE thumbs up for the 3 channels of i/o on the M200!!!!!!!!!!!)

I will purchase 8 units to convert mono channels to stereo without using computer please. Tired of pretending with plugins.
Thank you for your work and great quality sound.

the m200 sounds like something i will surely be interested in. i actually got a demo of the m7 at AES. first time hearing it in person. of course it was jaw dropping but when i asked the gentleman if there was any news on the delay unit he froze, looked me in the eye, grinned and said 'i don't know what your'e talking about' haha!

Casey. Thanks for everything. So much great work you're doing. I'm certainly down for the v3 upgrade and will also get an m200 to go with the m7. See you in NYC.
