TAKE A LISTEN

Easily Capture Iconic Echo

Easily Capture Iconic Echo

UA sourced historic technical diagrams from the early '60s to precisely emulate microphone/speaker setups inside Capitol's chambers, including the vintage omnidirectional Altec 21D mics and custom speaker/horn configurations and current "modern" configurations using omnidirectional Shure SM80s — all in their original hit-making positions.

Create with Unprecedented Ambience Control

Create with Unprecedented Ambience Control

Capitol Chambers' Position slider gives you next-level control over spatial and time response, allowing you to reposition the chamber mics. From the maximum distance stock positions, to direct speaker-to-microphone effects and proximity characteristics, Capitol Chambers can subtly thicken vocals or drums, or soak strings with the most natural, complex sounding reverb ever recorded.

Explore UA's Dynamic Room Modeling

Explore UA's Dynamic Room Modeling

Harnessing the same technology as UA's award-winning Ocean Way Studios plug-in, Capitol Chambers uses UA’s proprietary Dynamic Room Modeling technology, an exclusive combination of physical modeling and advanced measurement techniques. Whereas standard convolution reverbs only provide a sonic snapshot, Dynamic Room Modeling gives Capitol Chambers nearly infinite ambient possibilities.

Go Deeper Still

Go Deeper Still

Beyond a vintage recreation, Capitol Chambers offers creative features for modern DAW workflows like Pre-delay, Dry/Wet mix, and Decay controls. A sweepable 80 to 750 Hz filter lets you minimize muddy bass going into the chamber, while Bass, Treble, and proportional Q Mid band lets you perfectly season the chamber's lush ambience.

Harness All-Star Artist Presets

Harness All-Star Artist Presets

The Capitol Chamber's plug-in features carefully crafted presets from a stunning roster of Grammy-winning engineers and producers, including the late Al Schmitt (Ray Charles, Steely Dan), Mark Linett (The Beach Boys, Los Lobos), Frank Filipetti (Madonna, Paul McCartney), Darrell Thorp (Beck, Radiohead), and many more.

Has made it on every mix since I got it. It’s fun to cycle through all the chambers and mics and suddenly “ah!”.

Very sweet reverb with a lot of flexibility. Definitely captures the retro sound of these chambers in a very hi-fi way.

Beautiful

Beautiful sounding plugin!
The Al Schmitt The One preset instantly made the vocals I was working on sound more expensive and purrrrrty!

What a great sound!

A brilliant and well-designed plugin

You simply have to try this one!
The simple design, the relatively few parameters still make a hugely useful reverb! With just a little taste of it, it can change the character of a source and bring beauty and musicality to things that does not sound enough "alive". Absolutely brililant!
