Even­tide SP2016

Computer Music - - News - even­tideau­dio.com

Veteran DSP wiz­ards Even­tide have re­birthed yet more of their leg­endary hard­ware-based re­verb al­go­rithms in soft­ware form. This time round, it’s the turn of the SP2016, the first pro­gram­mable ef­fects unit, as heard on records by Adele, Talk­ing Heads, Eminem and many oth­ers.

SP2016 Re­verb (Mac/PC, VST/AU/AAX) em­u­lates the orig­i­nal box’s Room, Stereo Room and Hi-Den­sity Plate al­go­rithms, each in two modes: Vin­tage and Mod­ern, the first to­tally au­then­tic (“all the way down to the bit-depth”), the sec­ond “brighter, more dif­fuse and [us­ing] a higher bit-depth”. It’s said to ac­cu­rately cap­ture “ev­ery as­pect of the sound of a real en­vi­ron­ment – from the com­plex early re­flec­tions, to the nat­u­ral way in which the echo den­sity in­creases with time, to the smooth Gaus­sian de­cay of the re­verb tail”. It costs $249.
