EMT® 250 Classic Electronic Reverb
EMT® 250 Classic Electronic Reverb
great and lush reverbs, esoteric effects, all just a click away, I love it.
An "all-must-have" reverb and more!!!!!
Never thought that touching this one, would change my sound so drastically..! Surely the best reverb of all times in our hands thanks to UAD..! Clarity and smoothness came into my mixes and changes my music life for once and for all...! THANK YOU UAD for making our music to sound the way it should..!
I can see why this verb was the 'bomb' back in the day. It is quite flexible and sounds great. It's definitely not a 'this is the only verb you'll ever need' but it's very usable.
Thank you UA!!!
I really loved the hardware piece when available in studio's. Now I can use use it in every session! This is the sound I remember and I love to use it on vocals or anything that needs to stand out and needs more weight. Even though the original was digital, it always had a natural character to me which would easily blend into the mix. UA's EMT250 has that same quality. There are other 250 emulations on the market, but I really prefer this one!
Excellent and fast results!
Since purchasing this has become my new favourite reverb. You can get great results fast. This sounds lush and smooth especially on vocals. Only negative thing is the quite short maximum pre delay time but it is not a fault of UAD, it is a limitation of the original model. Luckily this can be solved with pre delay before the reverb.

I love the way the tracks get full and warm with this reverb...
... On vocals, short reverb time, makes your voice sound fat...
I love it.
Not a swiss army knife...
But a real tool!
I find more uses for this verb every day, but its not going to replace your go-to.
I love this sound on tracks with lots of HF transients.
Excellent reverb with many uses. Works great on pretty much anything. I mainly use it on vocals, guitars and drum buses. One of my go to reverbs due to its simplicity and sound.
A wonderful device, providing the user with a multiple of tools.
Fat chorus, rich reverb, deep delay, you name it, this unit handles audio beautifully.
Easily my fav verb
I was extremely skeptical when I demoed this on the advice of a friend as I already have darn near every native reverb for use in protools. So I grabbed this verb and the EMT 140. Both were great but the 250 did something I could never do before-make the reverb sound like it's actually PART of the sound and not just added to the sound. I'm so happy to own this verb and know it's there when I need it. It's an integral part of my mixes now.
Wide range of effects
Such a cool plugin! Just flipping through the presets shows the wide variety of sounds possible with the 250. The simple controls make it fast to use. The ability to turn off the noise with the click of a mouse is something that is not possible with the original. There is no other reverb/delay unit like this!
I love this reverb to bits, you can dial in so much wet signal before it muddies your mix. My favorite application is for creating large room reverbs, that character of it is just so silky and smooth and doesn't create loads of screaming resonances like a lot of other verbs. The only thing is you cant do the PROPER small room/gated sounding reverbs that you can with say, some Native convolution verbs, but I guess that's just a limit of the original hardware. Amazing reverb all round, my go to verb for nearly everything now. I just made a tune with loads of it on and it's amazing how clean it still sounds.
analog reverb colour
EMT 250 is my go-to for that analog reverb colour. One of my favourite reverbs.
Emulazione? No... Questa é realtá
Suona davvero vicino all'hardware originale. È uno strumento sublime per i propri mix.
Stupendo, chiaro, morbido e con una pasta analogica senza eguali nel modo dei riverberi digitali.
You've heard it on countless records
I didn't realize it until I started playing with it. A very unique sound that reminds me of some tracks I've heard before, though I can't say what exactly.
It's a little difficult to control. The switches aren't very clearly labelled, but I guess that's part of making it an accurate representation. Does't matter too much for me. I just move everything around until it's just right.
A lot of possibilities here for some unique sounds. I use it more for the delay features, and put the EMT140 after it. Fun stuff!
EMT 250 Review
Awesome. Buy it. It takes a little getting used to, but it is a beautiful thing. Thanks!
The Most Fantastic Reverb I have Ever used on past 10 years.
Love the Plug in.
Thanks to UAD.
I like this reverb Plug-in. Very useable . Thanks.
Reverb superbe dont je ne saurais plus me passer. Peut qu'utiliser pr un grand nombre d'instruments. Parfait.
Don't Be Afraid!
After owning the 250 for a long time I recently have given it more use and really loving it, especially what is does as a snare drum reverb. Even in modern pop and rock tunes, this old school baby really fits in. It's great on tambourine as well. Also, the snare reverb preset is a great starting point. i like it at about 1.2.
