Vintage Digital

Reverb Plugins

Reverb Plugins, we all have them regardless of whether or not we have hardware reverbs. Some of us simply can't afford the high-end vintage digital reverbs so the plugin reverb replications make a lot of sense. Either way, we thought it was time to compile every single reverb plugin that is out there, into one very long list, so here goes!

With the exception of Pro Tools users, most plugins come in the form of VST (Virtual Studio Technology) developed by Steinberg Media Technologies in 1996.

VST and similar technologies (Such as Apple’s Audio Units) use digital signal processing to simulate traditional recording studio hardware in software.

Thousands of plugins exist, both commercial and freeware, and many audio applications support VST under license from its creator, Steinberg.

VST plugins generally run within a digital audio workstation (DAW), to provide additional functionality, though a few standalone plugin hosts exist which support VST.

Most VST plugins are either instruments (VSTi) or effects (VSTfx), although other categories exist—for example spectrum analyzers and various meters.

VST plugins usually provide a custom graphical user interface that displays controls similar to physical switches and knobs on audio hardware.
