Universal Audio EMT 250 Classic Electronic Reverb Plug-In by Jack Morgan
I’ve spent four weeks mixing with this (2 x demo periods) and intend to purchase as soon as I have the money. This is a very professional sounding reverb, especially for vocals. It’s got a gorgeous tail and avoids both being boomy in the low frequencies and fizzly in the high frequencies.. just a beautiful sound.
The GUI is a treat – you can fantasise that you’re sitting with one of the real units from 1976 and pulling the arms on its robot torso. It feels very authentic and lovable. The EMT 250 is obviously a very respected unit, having been used on records by Brian Eno and George Massenburg – and soon, just as importantly, me. I feel very privileged to be able to use this reverb, since only 250 of the original EMT units were ever made. And I’m able to automate the parameters of all of the effects. HA!
This is not just a reverb unit – the other effects are equally as strong. The echo, delay, chorus and “special” sounds are very tasty indeed, giving your mixes a distinctive glisten.
Having bought UAD’s EMT 140 plate plugin as well as Sonnox’s Oxford reverb plugin, I thought I would not have to spend any more money on reverbs. I was wrong. Unfortunately I have fallen in love with the EMT 250.
