Explore the deep and rich sound of plate reverb like never before with Plate, an advanced physically-modeled reverb. Plate employs realtime physical-modeling with up to 20,000 modes to achieve new levels of depth and detail, going well beyond the limitation of physical units. Take complete control over your plate’s material and dampening properties and explore a universe of reverb sounds from classics like the EMT140 and 240, and beyond.
Plate – Custom-Shop Electro-Mechanical Reverb:
– Advanced physically-modeled plate reverb with stunning sound quality.
– Fully-configurable mechanism goes beyond traditional hardware.
– Visual decay editor and expandable UI for efficient workflow.
Our goal was not to clone a specific hardware reverb, but we wanted to replicate the sound of many hardware reverbs and allow users to experiment with their physical characteristics, even designing their own. To reach this goal we’ve built an entire plate reverb system as a fully-parametric physical model. We approached it from the perspectives of both clinical science and musicality. Forming the models core on extensive mathematical research and then calibrating the results against detailed measurements made of an EMT140 and EMT240. With Plate we simulate every component of the sound: dimensions, material, input/output positioning, modulation and decay sculpting while staying within the general sonic territory allowed by physics. In doing so we’re able to create a near-endless array of authentic plate reverb sound.
Start with models of your favorite units and quickly change their physical attributes; adjust the type of metal to dramatically alter the decay; adjust the plate size and manually position the i/o to effect the transient shapes from metallic ‘chirped’ sounds to full and even bodied reverbs; adjust anisotropy to detune the sound; apply tension to alter the frequency response; modify the physical dampener, mechanical friction, air radiation and octave-band decay to perfectly sculpt your reverb; boost your signal with a preamp saturation stage, add predelay, and then easily tame problem frequencies and position your sound with octave-band and lowcut filters. Adventurous users can dive straight-in and create any number of unique reverb configurations from scratch, yielding exceptional creative potential for sound designers.
