Verbstation is a hybrid reverb workstation that delivers 16 reverb modes in an easy to navigate interface! Verbstation uses Hybrid Convolver technology to deliver familiar and usable reverbs while allowing you the control over the reverb you would find in an algorithmic reverb! Using Verbstation in series allows you to manipulate the space of individual tracks or create special effects, while using Verbstation in parallel allows you to create space on multiple tracks to place them in the same room!
The Display Window is comprised of 3 sections. To the left, you can choose between Room, Hall, Plate, and Gated reverbs. In the middle, it displays the decay and reflection profile of the chosen reverb combined with the current parameters of the plugin. To the right, you are given a choice between 4 different reverb profiles for each type. This results in a combined 16 different flavors of reverb that you can access from the Display Window!
Reverbs and Types
The Room reverbs deliver the fast early reflections of a small room.
A: Big Room. Delivers the sound of a large ambient room.
B: Wood Room. Delivers the sound of a medium sized room with lots of reflections.
C: Guitar Room. Delivers the sound of a live room used for guitar tracking.
D: Shotgun. Delivers the reverb response of a loud transient in a small room.
The Hall reverbs deliver the lush and spacious ambiance of a concert hall!
A: Bright Hall. Delivers the sound of a large concert hall space with a vibrant top end to add brilliance to the reverb tails.
B: Medium Hall. Delivers the sound of a medium sized concert hall space with a softer top end to deliver a warmer reverb that doesn’t drown the high end of your mix.
C: Splat. - Delivers the sound of a large but dark hall with later early reflections to help separate the original source from the apparent reverb tail.
D: Warehouse - Delivers the sound of a large empty warehouse, with a boomier character and less clarity in the reverb tail. Great for special effects.
The Plate reverbs deliver the classic sound of famous plate reverbs!
A: Gold Plate. Delivers the sound of a darker sounding reverb plate with plenty of early reflections to give a slapjack effect.
B: Sizzle Plate. Delivers a more subtle reverb plate effect with a longer natural pre delay.
C: Vocal Plate. Delivers a reverb perfect for helping vocals sit in their own space in the mix!
D: Snare Plate. Delivers the classic snare plate sound used for decades on many classic rock and metal albums!
The Gate reverbs deliver the gated reverb effect heard on so many classic records!
A: Big Gate. Delivers a large reverb sound with a smooth gated tail, allowing drums to sound huge without the reverb reducing clarity in the mix.
B: Bright Gate. Delivers a more focused and bright gated reverb effect!
C: Snare Snap. Delivers a gated reverb designed to help the snare transient snap out of the mix!
D: Tom Gate. Delivers a deep gated reverb perfect for helping lengthen the sustain of toms!
The faders allow you to alter the response of the chosen reverb profile.
Controls the size of the virtual space being emulated.
Allows you to blend between the amount of early reflections and the amount of reverb tail.
Pulling down this fader to zero will remove the reverb tail entirely, leaving only the early reflections.
Pushing this fader up to 100 will remove the early reflections entirely, leaving only the reverb tail.
Allows you to dial out high end information by applying a high cut filter after the reverb effect.
Pulling down this fader to zero will remove the high cut filter, allowing everything up to 22 kHz to pass through.
Pushing up this fader to 100 will filter everything above 500 Hz, allowing only the low mids and bass frequencies to reverberate.
Adjust between mono and stereo reverbs, while giving you control of the width.
Pulling down this fader to zero will result in a mono reverb.
Pushing up this fader to 100 will result in a wide stereo reverb effect.
Controls the attack envelope of the reverb.
Pulling this fader to 0 results in a reverb with a longer attack time, allowing for a gentler onset of reverb that seems to swell gently into your mix.
Pushing this fader to 100 results in a reverb with a very fast attack time, allowing the transient itself to reverberate.
Controls the sustain envelope of the reverb.
Pulling this fader to 0 results in a reverb with a shorter sustain time, allowing the reverb to begin fading out sooner.
Pushing this fader to 100 results in a reverb with a longer sustain time, allowing the reverb to hold longer before fading out.
Controls how quickly the reverb dies away after it has finished sustaining.
Pulling this fader to 0 results in a reverb that dies away quickly.
Pushing this fader to 100 results in a reverb that dies away more slowly.
These controls allow you to blend and shape the input and output signal, allowing you to sculpt the reverb to the shape needed for your mix!
A continuously variable low cut filter that removes low end information before it enters the reverb’s internal processing.
The filter is off by default, but can remove frequency content all the way up to 1 kHz with ease.
Controls the time between the original dry sound, and the reverb sound.
The Predelay has a range from 0ms to 100 ms.
A tilt eq circuit that allows you to shape the resulting reverb between Dark and Bright.
Blends between the completely dry signal and the processed reverb signal.
When using Verbstation on single sources, this can help dial in just the right balance between reverb and the dry sound.
When using Verbstation on a send, it’s recommended that you set the Mix control to 100%.
Verbstation is available in VST/VST3/RTAS/AAX and AU* on Mac & Windows in both 32 & 64 bit versions.
*AU is only available on Mac.
