Triple Reverb Engine

Featuring three stunning algorithmic reverbs: “Stratus” from Cloudmax 1, the new “Cirrus” and “Wash” Inspired by cloud types, Stratus offers colorful, analog-style reverb, while Cirrus provides a delicate sound with super long tails. The new Wash reverb blurs textures before they hit the main reverb units, enhancing your creative options. The new Advanced view lets you fine-tune all the DSP reverb options at once.

  • Feels a bit like an unfinished cheap plugin. The chosen skin never saves itself. It has no sync option for the delays. It is an overpriced plugin in my opinion.
