It has been a while since we have seen a new plugin from the geniuses at Soundtoys, the last being the Little Plate which we reviewed back in 2020. It seems they have now taken that great plugin and expanded the concept to be a full study in plate reverbs.
Introducing Soundtoys SuperPlate, a revolutionary studio tool that brings the distinctive tonal character of five revered electromechanical plate reverbs right into your studio. Say goodbye to the hefty investment and cumbersome weight of the original units, as SuperPlate’s advanced algorithms deliver an unparalleled level of realism and versatility, resulting in lush and expansive effects.
At the heart of Soundtoys SuperPlate lie meticulously crafted models of the EMT 140, EMT 240, Audicon, Stocktronics RX4000, and EcoPlate III reverb units. With its three analog coloration options – Tube, Solid-State, and Clean – you can combine them with any of Soundtoys SuperPlate’s styles to achieve your desired sound. Additionally, this cutting-edge tool offers a comprehensive range of modern digital features, including infinite decay time, built-in predelay, extensive modulation controls, a full-featured EQ for precise tonal shaping, and a unique decay ducking option that intelligently adjusts decay time to reduce overlapping or build-up.
Given how good the Little Plate plugin was/is, we cannot wait to get our hands on this new plugin!
