Fantastic Reverb

If you only get one Reverb plugin, this is one I'd suggest. It sounds great on everything and can do much more than just reverb as well. There's a reason the hardware holds so much value.

EMT 250

This is an authentic reproduction of a classic. I understand only around 250 of the hardware units were ever made with resell prices above $10K, so this is a steal.

The EMT 250 just works.

Unique sound and design I don't want to miss

I never had the chance to put hands on the real thing, and I thought I had enough Reverb PlugIns - BUT the EMT 250 is killer! It gives me sounds I always was looking for. It is one of those Plugins that never sound bad and you can use on any instrument. It is rich and wide and natural. Recommended to every serious producer out there!

Timeless Reverb and Effects

The UAD EMT 250 Digital Reverb plugin is an outstanding emulation of the first-ever digital reverb unit. Celebrated for its lush, smooth reverb tails and versatile effects, the EMT 250 plugin faithfully captures the unique character of the original hardware. With controls for reverb, delay, chorus, phase, and echo, it offers a wide range of sonic possibilities. The intuitive interface allows for quick adjustments, making it easy to add depth and space to any mix. Ideal for vocals, drums, and instruments, the UAD EMT 250 stands out as a must-have for producers seeking classic digital reverb with modern flexibility.

Kick Ass

I'll be honest, I heard that Brendan O'Brien used this bad boy on drums for many of those killer albums. It hasn't dissapointed.

Just turn it on

Just turn it on for guitar pretty good. Still learning to tweak. Got it on sale

Simple and Awesome

So simple and easy to use I’m really added that magic touch to my drum tracks. Within about 30 seconds of adding the insert, my drums came alive. The other river plug-ins I have a little harder to tame in my opinion, but not the EMT 250. I can see why so many people like this reverb.

The Best Classic Electronic Reverb

Há anos aguardo uma oportunidade para comprar um dos melhores reverbs que já conheci. Fiquei impressionado desde a primeira vez que o ouvi.

Melts into the music

That's how I hear it - somehow melding and merging with the dry mix in such a natural and very smooth / velvety way

EMT 250 Verb

Great sounding reverb with easy use adjustment’s, for tweaking the good presets. Great complimentary to the EMT 140 (my snare go to reverb) and the Capital Chambers reverb.

Does it for me

Great versatile reverb. Loads of presets ready to use. Very flexible and feels like the reel deal.

Smooth, creamy , ready to go !

i could laugh when people say : It’s realistic hahaha there’s no way to know the difference with this beautiful sounding reverb and the real analog machine. It hurts , but Digital have turn the analog down.

The only analog advantage is the palpable faders and that the machine “ burns “ in your own way , i know that. The plug is a sound that a lot of people
will have; it’s time to let the creativity distinct our sound besides the machine.

I put it in a bus track , send a voice track , instant magic , the reverb blends perfect , gave a gorgeous “felt” space
