AKG® BX 20 Spring Reverb
AKG BX 20 Spring Reverb
Great spring reverb. Bought after the first day of demoing! recommended
Rich, Thick, Musical and a Truly Unique Reverb:
This reverb inflicts a high DSP load on my Apollo and it also has very long latency, but if used in an aux bus it works just fine. Be careful because you can't track through it as an insert effect or use it live because of that latency. That's why I didn't buy it initially. I record my classical guitar on a dry mono track while monitoring and also recording the BX 20 on a stereo aux bus track. This works just fine for me so I suggest trying it that way.
I have never heard a real BX 20 but to my ears this is not a guitar spring reverb sound, use the Galaxy emulation for a retro spring reverb sound.
I have all the UAD reverbs and they all are distinctive, musical and great. The unique BX 20 reverb definitely is too.
Incredibly wonderful reverb
Now this reverb is one of my favorites. It gives a great depth, without showing an obvious reverberation effect and without contaminating the material. Finally, it is in my arsenal of plugins. Thanks guys, you are super!
Dark and beautiful
I like the AKG BX 20 Spring Reverb sound. It can give you that bright clang or that deeeeep dark ambience that penetrates the background.
Simply the best
Most beautyful reverb i ever had!
Spring reverb not like other spring reverbs.
This spring reverb doesn't go ''boing'' when you hit it hard, sounds lovely.
Best reverb on UAD platform - for me.
I have purchased AKG BX20 after auditioning other UAD reverbs for a month, and I am very confident that it is a nice sounding thing which also suits me best. Dark and dreamy, lots of character.
Nothing Quite Like It!
This plugin is so unique compared to what else is out there, its instantly vibey, dark, ethereal. Recommended on guitars and vocals especially but with its almost plate-like quality it can be useful on anything.
All about that box
Now i know what LOVE AT FIRST HEAR is about
I am in love , with a reverb box
Great for deep reverbs
This plug in works great for dark reverb sounds. You can get a great spring wash with this.
smooth, dark and very musical reverb
I like this one a lot! Not a reverb to use on all genres or tracks, but when you're looking fore a smooth, colorful, lush and analog sounding reverb, this is the one...

Ground control to Major Tom...
The space´s sound, the spatiality that you can create with this AKG reverb, exceed any expectation. You can use this reverb as a traditional spring reverb or... use it as incredible creative instrument for create ethereal mixes and sound images.

Thank you, UA, for another great plugin!
Just used this plug-in for a mix and it was amazing. It's very fat and authentic. The low-end is full of character. I've been using the EMT 140 and this is great one as well. Congratulations UA Team!
Rich, Complex, and ...
The sound is so rich, complex, and beautiful. Love it. Use it everyday.
Sounds good but decay is way too long
Sounds good but decay is way too long. You either have to run a upward compressor sidechained on the effects buss or any other type of - sustain plugin to remove the reverb tail. Good plugin but come on you could have added extra features to gate the tail or something else to shorten the reverb time.
