UAD Reverbs, how good? Reverb & Delay Plugins

UAD Reverbs, how good?

Hi
I usually work in proyects with around 40 tracks, all native processing, on a PC. I can only use 1 native reverb, because my system freezes if i use more than that. I also use compressors and eq.
I need more processing power, so I was thinking in getting 1 UAD Card to take care of reverbs. I would love to use 3 simultaneous reverbs.

My Question is
Are UAD Dreamverb, and UAD PLATE 140 good sounding reverbs?

Tc Electronic Powercore Express seems like another good option, but costs 1200 dollars, a little bit too expensive for me at this time.

Any thoughts?

Thanks

Dreamverb is like getting a "Lewinsky" from Roseanne Barr where UAD 140 is like getting one from a few supermodels at the same time.

The Uad 140 is imo enough to justify the price of admission. It's an awesome reverb. I had the demo of dreamverb and it didn't blow me away. The uad140 is great on drums and sounds very good on some vocals depending on the context.

Get the 140 and altiverb and most of your itb reverb needs should be covered.

I agree. The plate is awesome, the others are mediocre at best.

Use the UAD for the 140 plate and some compressors instead of native ones. That should free some native resources for more native reverbs.

UA plate is great...
You need to check out the Classic Studio Reverb by IK..
and the Arts Acoustic Reverb by Arts Acoustic.

I wouldn't bother with the TC stuff IMHO... I quit using the VSS3 when I got the others.

So you like the Classic Studio Reverb better than the VSS3?
