EMT Reverb

I have a few "go-to" reverbs. This one was on sale so I bought it. It is so easy to use and quick to get a great sound. It is my new "go-to" verb.

Very nice sounding reverb, easy to control, sounds good with acoustic instruments, a native version would be good too.

I’m in love with this reverb.

Not a whole lot of features and flexibility, but when I think “reverb” THIS is the sound I hear in my head. Sounds beautiful on everything. This is reverb. Want “some” reverb? This is reverb.

Great Quality

Very happy with this purchase. Definitely not a workhorse type of reverb in my opinion but it certainly does what it does very well!

Versatile e di grande qualità

Si tratta di un multieffetto da usare con molti strumenti. Utilizzando l'EMT 250 si possono ottenere ottimi risultati già con i vari preset. Io lo uso sulla mandata effetti quando mi ascolto e nelle fasi del mix. Usato con presisione, è utilissimo anche nella fase di mastering. La traccia della voce acquista molto con l'EMT 250. L' emulazione è ottima !

Great Revival of The Great Reverberator!

I owned an original EMT 250 for well over 20 years, loved it, and used it on almost every project for that length of time. In fact, Julio Iglesias WOULD NOT record without it at my studio! But mine finally "bit the dust" and couldn't be repaired...I was heartbroken.

But now I have it back! Buying and installing the UAD EMT 250 almost brought tears to my eyes. Such wonderful, lush reverb again. Thanks UA!

Can't explain it

Does what it's meant to do and more, can be used for a simple vocal reverb or for a whirlwind of weird stuff. It's fun that's all I can say!

Sound so smooth and great- it’s just a joy to use
