You guyz are correct when telling we have less controls but for me an unified interface is priceless without having to dig in variuous unit disign ( with pros and cons fir each )

The abilty to siwtch from a 224 to a bricasti with few clicks is the main thing here .... not enought controls ? Maybe i have other reverb for tweak heaven ...but you will for sure find a preset that get you 90 % where you want and the remain 10 % are reached like a breeeze with the plugin controls ....

So each use its tool ....for me it sits on my buses and when i want full design : lexicon pcm , psp , tsar , fabfilter ...

I usually choose or have a color in my head for each songs and that s why i tend mimise the numbers of presets/reverbs used ( no rules for sure , but depending on projects. ....in a pure producer way here ..not mixing engineer ) and the verbsuite answer this need like no other ...it s like being cooking and having a butch of spices at your disposal to find the right one to drope ... i prefer to have alll near by all ready ...instead of having to mix the peeper to figure out ...mmm not the paper , let s try curcuma ...

Steven, I hope this paves the way for the PCM70 and PCM60 to follow. Nice to see the XL. Great verb.

Wow, $49 for an IR set. I guess this is going to be standard fare for the VerbSuite. I am even more glad I didn't buy into this plugin now. Of course, the intended audience is really the subscription crowd who demand a stream of new content.

Showing that the plugin is comparable to the uad 224
in a carefully chosen tiny number of settings is fine as long
as it is not implied that the match will be as good across all settings
of the original 224.


Can you match the sound of the slate plugin with that of the uad
224, for example, for every one of the uad presets without capturing a separate
IR for every uad preset? That would be a more convincing proof
of sound match+flexibility.

Otherwise you have an IR that matches a uad 224 preset (not trivial,
but not a huge deal either IMO).

Hi! The UAD224 has different controls and can manipulate the reverb programs differently than Verbsuite, but Verbsuite also has some manipulation of the reverb programs too. But the raw reverb programs at default will match very well, including the modulation. Ultimately you can do some great work with either one of these plugins and the 224/224XL has now become my favorite reverb patch in Verbsuite. I love how they sound in the launch video mix, you can really push them without getting an overly verbed out sound.

Thanks for the comments!

Cheers,
Steven

That's true, but the main $199 includes multiple fusion captures of 8 classic devices. It's already a huge spread of sound choices.

The most satisfying of all plugin subscriptions. The new plugins and additions far outweigh the yearly subscription price. I appreciate the passion that lead to the tools from guys like Mr. Slate and Colin from McDSP.

Think of it like a reverb a la carte ... you re free to add units that only you want/need ...

It s like adding rack gear in a virtual studio ....for the price of a diner ....

I just saw a video of produce like a pro and steven , and while i m not always 100 % in phase with slate moves , he come from the exact same path as a lot of us , when going to a studio was costing us an arm ... now look what we got , and he s responsible in parts ( with other great dev) of why plugin industry step the game up while leveling prices ....

He really love and enjoy its product ( and use them ) ... and release stuff he always dreamed of .... we always dreamed of ... for a fraction of the price ..

In first I was very scepitcal about VS but now I use it since 3 months and to my surprise in many cases its the one that sits in the mix very easy and nice.....
I just wish to have more presets. And a few more options to manipulate the IR.... I never understood the 224 I maybe just dont like it....

I don't use Facebook so I would like to see Yamaha SPX90 II and Alesis MIDIVerb 4 added to the collection.

So can you just buy this for 50 bucks or do you need to have the rest of VSC?

Wow, talk about memory lane... Alesis Midiverb4 was the first reverb I ever bought. I must have been like fourteen years old. Mowed a lot of lawns for that damn thing. Got it at Rondo Music on Route 22 in Union New Jersey. I can even remember the name of the salesperson, his name was Manny. I didn't have a driver's license so my mom took me to get it and I remember explaining to her what a "reverb" was on the ride there. That same day I picked up the Alesis 3630.

So yeah, that one is a no brainer assuming I can find one.

PS: Moms are the best.

Cheers,
Steven

Haha, nice story thanks for sharing!

My suggestions may be a little strange but there are already plenty of lush/rich/expensive reverb units in the Suite. So...some cheaper, grainer, dirtier reverbs would be welcoming.

Although the SPX90 was affordable (especially for its time) I remember reading somewhere that it was basically like the SM57 of reverb. Affordable but still good enough for high end studio usage. The SPX90 II added extra memory I believe but otherwise sounded the same as the original.

I get why some cats love to have say, uad version of a reverb.... All the emu diving to their heart's content. But, I'm a big dumb caveman... I second the emotion of flipping between the various ir's... I dig the basic but useable controls on VS.

Steven... How bout some real plates? Damn I love the waves abbey road plates.

Yes, my point being that it is not "only 49 bucks", but rather "only 248". A slight difference, and a marketing hook [which I´m allergic to].

Do you have to re-install VS or will it work with older versions? I currently have 1.0.4.1

These will also work in Reverberate 2 at half the price, right?

(only fair if they're "sharing" Casey's gift to the world, etc.)

SPX90 Please! Used by Joe Barressi, Andy Wallace among a few. Yes it was cheap and noisy but a great tool to have in plug-in form. Nowadays the power supplies are failing in many of them.

Wait a minute, does this offer means that I can get also on free plugin coupon like the black Friday? and by any chance Slate is there a plan that you bring VMR without the container. I mix with in Harrison 32c and you have no idea how flexible that DAW is I can compress using your 1176 right channel and left channel using multi band compressor or whatever of your choice. Your VMR is counter productive for that matter I only use it for parallel compression for now. Please if you can I really appreciate it if you can tell for how long it is going to take to get them individually. I don't really understand how VMR passes quality inspection for that matter.

Steven. I downloaded this yesterday. Haven't had time to check it out yet, but I did notice that it was a rather large file size (a little in excess of 1Gb). Can I do like I did with the Briscati responses and put the FIRs on a separate drive?? If I can, where exactly are the FIRs for this update located on my Mac hard drive after I install it? Thanks. Looking forward to using this.
