The EMT 250 Classic Electronic Reverberator Plug-In
This month we are taking an up-close and personal look at the EMT 250 Electronic Reverberator Powered Plug-In for the UAD-2. Since its release in July, 2009, it has received praise from all over the audio engineering industry. Industry veterans who know the original hardware are in awe as they hear the same coveted and unique reverb sounds they have grown to know and love. Engineers who have never used the hardware marvel at how easily the EMT 250 sits in a mix.
Everything down to the A to D converters and other analog components were modeled, making the EMT 250 Powered Plug-in one of the most accurate hardware emulations ever created.
This is not just an emulation of the EMT 250 algorithm. It is the exact same algorithm re-coded to run on the UAD-2 by its original creator, Dr. Barry Blesser. Everything down to the A to D converters and other analog components were modeled, making the EMT 250 Powered Plug-in one of the most accurate hardware-to-software emulations ever created.
Now, kick back and enjoy the demo video, where I step through all the controls of the EMT 250 on a variety of audio sources. After that, circle back to visit the June 2009 Analog Obsession article to read more about this incredible reverb!
