Introduced in 1976, and still regarded as one of the best-sounding reverb units ever made, the EMT 250 was the first digital reverberator to operate through a purely electronic system. Today, Universal Audio is proud to introduce a faithful emulation of this iconic, lever-driven reverb as a UAD Powered Plug-In. Although only around 250 hardware units were ever built, the EMT 250 continues to leave an immeasurable mark on record-making history in the hands of studio legends like George Massenburg, Bruce Swedien, Daniel Lanois, Brian Eno, and Allen Sides.
This video discusses the history of the EMT 250 hardware, and how we came to create the plug-in. Also featured is Allen Sides, whose EMT 250 we modeled, as well as Dr. Barry Blesser, who designed the original algorithm.
