Very Good Reverb
This reverb brings dry signals to life. It is so much more than just a reverb. It is a a very deep room simulator. Please do something like this for a symphony orchestra stage as well! ! !Read More

I work on several projects that lean towards Motown styles and these chambers are perfect for those. I also have the Hitsville equalizers and they too are great, in fact the mastering EQ is now always on my output bus.
My Favorite Reverb!
The Hitsville Reverb Chambers sounds so amazing. Not to mention it's a lot of fun to just play with. I love the Microphone options and the sounds you can create just by changing the parameters. I love it.

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). Thank You UAD
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.
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.
Great reverb! It adds excitement instantly
A great tool but if you have caption Chamber it’s not NEEDED but great to have!
A very unique reverb that no other software devs have done. I tried it during my Spark trial and had to own it.
Great chamber nice coloration and space!
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!
Instans sound of motown- better than I ever hoper for, love it!
Sounds good and does what it claims to do. N'uff said.
