Three Unique Plate Reverbs Captured in a Single, Powerful Plug-In
Universal Audio “steps up to the plate,” rendering another classic tool for the DAW: Introducing the EMT 140 Plug-In. German company EMT made a breakthrough in 1957 with the release of the EMT 140, which utilized a resonating metal plate to create ambience. Nothing is quite like the wonderfully lush and distinctive tone of plate reverb, which still endures as part of the fabric of modern music. Endorsed by EMT Studiotechnik GmbH, and painstakingly modeled by Universal Audio, this plug-in replicates the sonic signature of three uniquely different EMT 140s installed at The Plant Studios in Sausalito, CA. Impractical or impossible in the past, UA again brings classic analog tools within the reach of everyone.
The EMT 140 plug-in is an amalgam of real plate system amplifiers and remote control components, and also offers useful feature enhancements that recreate common applications when using plate reverbs. Emulations of both the original EMT 80 Hz shelf filter electronics and the popular aftermarket Martech electronics with their 12dB filters cut filters are represented first in the signal path. The user is then presented with three switchable plate controllers (A, B and C) that recreate the mechanical dampers that decrease plate decay time, each with its own measured characteristic sound. Plates A and B use the original EMT electronics system, for which the plates themselves had not been tuned in some time. Plate C uses the more modern Martech electronics which had just been fully serviced.
