Ain't Nothing Like The Real Thing.

Chamber Two is great for drums and One is good for piano. Gives your mix that old-school charm.

My favorite UA Reverb

First off, thank you UA for releasing this plugin.

I have the ultimate 11 bundle so I have capital chambers, oceanway, EMT, dreamverb, etc.. I use all of them. I like all of them. Then I got the Hitsville and I was so surprised. Right away I noticed that it just seemed to really lay into my mixes nicely. After trying it on multiple sessions it quickly became my favorite UAD reverb.

It’s GUI has a very familiar feel. Similar to capital chambers. It’s always nice to open a new plugin and have just be self explanatory right from the get go. It’s what I would expect from a UA plugin. Easy to use, easy to understand, the visual of a plugin can also be inspiring and I think UA does an outstanding job with everything they do. I’m
Glad I chose my Apollos.

Insanely good sounding

This plugin is incredible. I have the Capitol Chambers, Ocean Ways, BX20 and EMT140. I thought I didn't need this. I was wrong. This sounds incredible - super realistic and lush. Amazing on vocals, guitars and drums!

It sits nicely in between the Capitol Chambers (which really sounds like a chamber) and Ocean Ways (which really sounds like a studio). This covers both grounds quite nicely. I do a lot of mixing and production on things recorded in sub-optimal rooms, and most time I'll substitue room-mics on drums, reamp percussion with the Ocean Way or Hitsville. Simply because they sound so much better!

Thanks UA, and please please please make this room emulation (and the BX20) available on the Golden UAFX pedal!

It's a TIME MACHINE

Like most, I have dozens of reverbs to pick from. But the Hitsville Chambers really have a unique vibe I hadn't heard before - except maybe on THOSE 60's records I love so much. That's why I say this is not just a reverb - it's a sonic Time Machine. Lovin' it.

Perfection!

This is my favourite reverb! I haven't used anything else since I got this. It's just pure class! Add the perfect reverb and mojo in the one plugin, and it's so easy to dial it in. It's the first (and usually the only) reverb I reach for.

Great space to put your drums in.

So far I've only used this plugin on drums, but what a nice space it puts things in.
I've messed around d a little with a clean guitar with it and it adds a nice dimension to it. Things move around in the stereo field, too, even when the source is centered.
Excellent realism and sense of space.
Love it.

A reverb that I work alongside

I like plugin, reverbs, that have a sound, and my approach when I find these gems is to work with that sound. This reverb is absolutely one of those plugins. Capitol chamber is another one absolutely GREAT, but this is more fun to my ears in that way that it can change my way on what instrument to use and more. Great fun, which is what creativity is about!

Get it

I am a BIG fan of the Capitol chambers and Ocean Way reverbs, they go on all my mixes. As Capitol is so good I did not think I would need this one. But boy am I glad that I got it. It definetely heard in the mix so it should be used with care. But if you want to add some vintage mojo to your recordings just add a hint of this!

Convolution + algorithmic

This is the one and only chamber you need. The realism of the convolution and the decay of the algorithm make this such a smooth yet creative chamber plugin love the mic options too

Slap it on

Put this on any track and even without adjustments to the eq it adds something special.

Hitsville Chambers - So COOL!

As a UAD user for a couple years now, I can safely say, they never cease to amaze! What I love about this plug-in: ease of use, great presets, great aesthetic, and of course the sound is amazing. Compared to Capital Chambers, I would agree with other users who state it’s brighter, but without losing any density or presence. It definitely has some sonic differences, very helpful user presets, and the flexibility you would expect with a Chambers plug-in. If you close your eyes and put this on a dry vocal, you will be transported back to the sound of those great Motown records, works wonders on background vocals. UA continually puts out products and content aimed at helping you succeed as an artist or producer, and the Hitsville Chambers are another solid example of their dedication to quality and performance. Would recommend, along with the EQ!
