Looking for the mother of all massive thick dense deep reverbs

i got lost in this tracks reverb last night ( for those not into large reverbs its large )

I think you need headphones to appreciate it.




the character of its reverb just seems way way deeper and richer than most i have used ,

any ideas what would make this ?

Lexicon 224 ? Yamaha Rev 1? and older Eventide ? ( i have the 8000 and 3000 and i dont find them anywhere near this or as ' weighty and rich ' .

ive used pcm70/80/h8000,h3000, every known ****e alesis and never found ' that depth or weight in a reverb ?

is this basically the sound of a fat old 6u reverb or something from the 80's likea 224

Does the Bricasti get anywhere near this ?

so many questions.

Wire up the oil storage area of a TI class oil supertanker as reverb chamber...

I bet a long version of one of these with some compression on the return would go a long way towards your oil tanker:

You can post a soundfile and I'll put it through the Bricasti.

That sounds like the recording is playing at a slower speed. That can do incredible things to a reverb.

I agree, that sounds like an Eventide-type verb with the entire track post reverb slowed down. Cool effect.

Nice! I dig it.

The 2C Audio b2 reverb plugin is great for this sort of thing. Check out the demo.

There is no reverb on this.
Just a pitched delay with feedback.
Easy to set up. Try for yourself.

By the sound of it, it is an AMS DMX.

Actually there is a slight bit of LFO modulation on it.
This would hint at the AMS too.

That's not how I'm hearing it.

Some of the modulation sounds like it might be from the source tracks, which were possibly recorded on tape, then slowed down (as other's have mentioned).

I hear the pitched delay. I hear a straight delay as well. The delays sound like they're being recirculated to swell in sections. There is perceptible reverb on many of the delay tails and swells.

Mind you. That's just how I'm hearing it. And I'm not Jochem Paap. And I subscribe to the philosophy that hearing (as it involves the brain) is a highly subjective exercise.

Cheers

nope
there might be what you're talking about but in addition to that, there is definitely some long reverb happening.

Overall tone of the song is very UAD plugin to me. I agree with earlier poster though that one of the best dark verbs is the Ursa Major Stargate. I have tried or owned many verbs and it is still my main one, especially for vox. I do have a custom zerotronics, master room, d5000, h3000, lexicons, vintage spring boxes, etc. but that is my favorite for slow and dark.

Huge modulated reverb/delays.
Your H3000 and H8000 should be able to get very close to this.

the biggest reverbs for me often end up being software plugs, going in to a real AKG springs or EMT plates. it's the combination that makes it particularly dense.

I had a Roland reverb once that could do 8 min reverbs. And since it modulated the tail, it was listenable because it moved throughout the whole decay.

yesterday i was stitting pretty fascinated in front of my ams rmx 16, sending SC drumtraks drum sounds to a near endless reverb. sounded incredible. the halls were great for that with low end up to the max! i love reverb. i love huge reverb. and i love vintage reverb.

Try out the ValhallaDSP Shimmerverb, it as an instant mood machine. And can create humongous tail with modulation and pitch shifting. You should be able to create something similar in a matter of seconds.

Stargate 626 still the king over here.
Thanks for the heads up on that Stace.

Just sounds like Omnisphere to me. No biggie reverb thing. I also loaded the song into Sound Forge a minute ago and zapped out the irritating percussive part of the sound to hear the tail and it's actually a fairly short reverb happening with the "string" part of the Omnisphere layer (It could be something else vsti wise, but I'm betting Omnisphere as it sounds pretty much like Eric's stuff). If done at separate passes, there sounds to be a 320msec or so delay in front of the stringy sound of the layer.... but my hunch is that it was played/sequenced in one go layer-wise.

Listened again...past one minute this time.
Ok, ok, ok, there is a reverb being blended in that becomes audible about a minute into the track
and becomes reeeeeally obvious towards the end.

So there's the pitched delay plus a long reverb.
Reverb send differs from delay send.
Reverb sounds vaguely Lexicon like, judging by its modulation and LPF,
but its pretty clean, so I don't think it is a vintage box.
