A Dynamic Duo of Classic EMT® Reverbs Combine Forces for the UAD-2.
The EMT® Reverb Bundle is a considerable compliment to any Mac- or PC-based recording system, and a powerful, “go to” combo in any UAD Powered Plug-Ins collection. This remarkable bundle combines stellar emulations of two of the most sought-after and difficult to attain EMT® reverb units ever created into one conveniently packaged and price-reduced bundle; you’ll save 20% compared with buying the plug-ins solo. Whether you’re enveloping a vocal track, or adding elegant ambience, these EMT® reverbs will always help your tracks fit perfectly in the mix.
Universal Audio “steps up to the plate,” rendering another classic tool for your 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.
Introduced in 1976, the EMT 250 is still regarded as one of the best-sounding hardware reverb units ever made. Its fan-base includes studio legends like George Massenburg, Bruce Swedien, Daniel Lanois, Brian Eno, and Allen Sides. Its distinctive clear and open reverb sound has appeared on countless records, including Prince & The Revolution’s Purple Rain, Elvis Costello’s Spike, and The Red Hot Chili Pepper’s Stadium Arcadium. Re-engineered by UA alongside original creator Dr. Barry Blesser, the EMT 250 plug-in goes far beyond emulation by using the very same algorithm found in these extremely rare hardware units.
“UA successfully modeled our three EMTs so well that in a blindfold test we could not tell the difference! Our 500-pound classic plate reverbs are now available to anyone in a…dare I say, plug-in.”
-John Cuniberti, Engineer (The Plant Recording Studios)
“The EMT 250 is amazing. That’s one of my favorite digital reverbs. It’s all over Norah’s [Jones] record, on all the songs.”
-Jacquire King, Producer/Engineer (Norah Jones, Modest Mouse, Tom Waits)
"The EMT 140 [plug-in] is pure Motown, better than my real one. Stunning!”
-Gavin Monaghan, Producer/Engineer (Joe Strummer, Elvis Costello, Fugees)
“The EMT 250 reverb [plug-in] instantly took me back 20 years. I’m so glad to have such musical-sounding tools.”
-Charlie Clouser, Engineer (NIN, Saw Soundtracks)
"The EMT 140 [plug-in] blew the plate presets of my standard reverb plug-in out of the water."
-Eli Crews, EMT 140 plug-in Review (Electronic Musician)
