reFuse Software releases Bucketverb, BBD reverb plug-in

reFuse Software announces the release of Bucketverb, a new reverb plug-in that explores an alternate history in which a rare bucket brigade delay (BBD) chip evolved into a sophisticated hardware unit perfect for ambience, lo-fi detuned decay, vocal presence, and more. Bucketverb enhances the features of previous reFuse Software plug-in Cheeseverb, and is currently available from the reFuse Software site for an introductory price of $49 USD.

At the core of Bucketverb is a meticulous software model of the Panasonic MN3011 BBD chip . While most BBD chips have a single output, making them ideal for delay effects, the MN3011 featured six differently spaced outputs, allowing for more of a reverberated sound. Learn more about the MN3011 chip.

Bucketverb features several enhancements which were never available on hardware units made with the MN3011 BBD chip. An LFO – outputting either triangle or random waves – allows for modulation of the delay time, and is perfect for getting subtle decayed sounds (dub guitars, synthwave/vaporwave synths) or wild, analog glitch-style effects. Multiple stereo output modes are available: in Panimation mode, the six outputs of Bucketverb sweep through the stereo spectrum, while Ensemble mode provides a rich, chorus-inspired reverb by modeling a pair of MN3011 chips. The magnitude of stereo spread is controlled by a variable Width slider. Long and short decay options round things out to finely set Bucketverb for everything from ambience to full-on washed out reverb.

Bucketverb is on sale now for $49 - learn more and grab a free demo at:

Very nice!

I appreciate this kind of plugin: it makes the sound that you expect, and all the knobs lead you to sensible variations of the theme (not somewhere totally different that you don't want/expect). Will try it!

Ooh, exciting! Just used the original cheeseverb on an appropriately cheesy mono synth on a mix today. Really spread it out and gave it a beautiful aura. Not for every source, but when it works it works really well. Looking forward to giving this a spin.

This plugin is perfect for making lo-fi or making music sound "old"
