The "Sanctuary" algorithm in Valhalla VintageVerb is inspired by the EMT250

Indeed, and it's really nice! "Inspired by" is the operative phrase here though. The approach and modulation scheme are similar and has a nice lushness to it. Also like the real 250, it sounds especially nice on vocals and snares in the .7 - 1.5s range with a bit of pre-delay.

I used to have a UAD system and their 250 sounded damn good, despite not being totally accurate. It also has the other effects modes which are really full of character for chorus and echoes and the super long space setting is fun.

Empty Room Systems 250 has a good reputation but I've not tried his yet. I do remember him years ago being very serious about making the structure for the Eventide platform (he ran an effects design forum..maybe still does?), investing a ton of passion and time into getting it right. I'd be surprised if his 250 is anything less than excellent.

SKNote Rev250 seems like a good deal for $30 but I haven't tried it.

I don’t think they are in business anymore...

I bought the ERS emt250 used from another user and we both tried emailing them multiple times about changing the ownership info and did not receive any response.

I need AAX for ProTools, and dont want to use a VST wrapper.

Yesterday I checked out the Altiverb IR of the 250 and it is ok. Not as amazing as an original 250, from what I remember of how it sounded.
AAX is ready. Want to help with beta?

Funny enough Ive been looking for a native EMT 250 as well. The ERS samples sound wonderful unfortunately it seems they are out of business? And no AAX.. I see that TC has released a plugin+desktop controller of the EMT 250 but I havent checked the site for samples yet.

The new TC with desktop control looks fun.

Not sure what you like about the EMT250 but personally, I was blown away by the PSP2445 which emulates the 240 and 245. If you have not done so yet, download the demo.
