epicVerb ~ Digital Reverberation Simulator


The “epicVerb” reverberation device aims at both tight small room and ambience effect simulation well suited to modern drum and vocal productions up to large “epic” halls as known from high quality outboard gear. This reverb’s sound ranges from rather concrete or even edgy up to smooth, transparent and artifact free reverb tails. It is designed for maximum flexibility and usability, and to take place as a true high quality stereo main reverb.

“epicVerb” features two different reverberation modes and six different stereo early reflection models. There are some standard reverb controls like ‘TIME’, ‘DAMP’ or ’PRE-DELAY’ as well as reverb tail modulation and detailed control over very first reflection patterns as an option. It offers different reverb time handling for high and low frequencies as well as a musical sounding EQ section containing two “BootEQ” equalizers and additional high- and low-pass filtering.

Specs and requirements:

  • PC / VST compatible
  • SSE and Assembler optimized sound engine
  • State-of-the-art digital signal processing
  • Smooth reverb tail processing without any ringing or metallic sounding artifacts
  • Different reverb and early reflection modes for maximum flexibility
