Have only the essential version - after trying that and the trial version I found it doesn't add anything I would like to have in my mix (ambient music). Too few options to tweak the sound; i found I rather don't use it.

The Past Is Future And Fun Again

When CDs first appeared, they were lauded as so clean, and would stay clean for ages, without hum, pops, or scratches unlike records, and with unchanging sound, unlike cassettes. But we soon felt there was something* just out of our perception of sand that was missing.... Some very smart people got on the case and over the years, discovered that the very reason we bought CDs in the first place was one of the elements missing from the experience of music. Not hiss or rumble, but subtle distortions and interference that made the sound *rich* to our ears. They called it warmth and they were right. Verve Analog Machines help bring that warmth in subtle -- and not so subltle ways. Good one, UAD!

1 plugin, many flavours. no wet/dry knob

my DAW has wet/dry knob for every fx, so no problem for me.
i used this plugin almost on everything and happy to have it in my arsenal.
strange GUI? maybe, i do not care

Love it, the simple way it works is perfect for my workflow without needing to stay a lot tweaking knobs

My new go to sweeteners

I was wondering why some people have given bad reviews on this plugin. It is actually really good. in the beginning, I almost fell into the thought that "this funny looking things" cannot be any good. But I could not contain myself to give it a try; and i did! to my surprice, this is now an actual asset to my arsenal. Who would have though....!

You can easily choose the tape effect.

Although detailed settings are not available, you can easily find a tape effect that suits you from a wide variety of presets.
For me, this effect is very useful.

Using prolifically

These little machines are an unexpected secret sauce. I insert them immediately after an instrument before any other effect and they make for a simple way to add life to most sounds. Verve has become a go-to when I want to diversify the character of an arrangement.

Nice flavours

Been enjoying using this plugin a lot! It's a real character machine, easy to use, and the results always seem to sit well in a mix. Sometimes you don't need a lot of tweakable options to be a really useful tool, case in point.....the LA 2A. Not much to play with, it just works....really well!

Amazing sounds made easy.

Personally I love the sounds I am getting out of this. But being an old analogue freak I would have loved a great retro design, and the producer in me would have loved to be able to dial in more, getting more into the nitty of things.

This is made for kids, great fun, easy to use, sounds truly amazing but if it is the avenue for someone like UA to take? I am not so sure, it is retro starwars vs. lego, and I would hate to see things going Disney.

Colorful fun.

Instant color and vibe. Easy, fun and simple. It fits my musical style and mixing philosophy.

I like it but

So I like it actually but not having a dry/wet knob and a mix knob is what is killing me. I have found away around it but using a bus and for me it gives some control. If it had this knob it would be perfect. Overall it sounds great. Simple not a lot going on I love that I don’t have to overthink

Needs a wet/dry blend

Don’t waste your money on the upgraded version. Sounds are fine, some even good, but offers very little flexibility for professionals. This is an ameuter hour release from a company that should know better. If the advanced model was free I’d have less issue but to pay $99 or $199 when promo ends is laughable. Do better UA, this is laziness.

Very nice

Pretty awesome plug-in just plain and simple. I applied this to bass guitar and it really thickened and beefed up the bass. It’s hard to describe honestly, but it’s sonically warmer and thicker. I’ve also use this on drums and my synthesizers and again it really does take the coldness out of the mix. I find that I want to use it on every track, buses and main because it’s so simple and quick to use.

Underrated plugin (Essentials version)

Based on the reviews I've seen on here, it appears Verve is getting alot of bad press and I think it's painting an inaccurate picture of how useful this plugin is.

I've seen that most complaints are to do with lack of a wet/dry mix knob and also a lack of control in general. Both these factors are true and are fair comments. However, lack of a mix knob can be compensated for by placing this plugin on a send/return track in your DAW - or you could even duplicate the instrument track you wish to use it on, place Verve on the duplicate and then blend the two using the faders on your mixer. So this isn't the end of the world.

As far as a lack of tweak-ability goes, I completely agree... but we need to understand what UA were going for when they created this plugin. Clearly, the plugin is designed to be simple and streamlined in terms of usage and interface; each machine in Verve is essentially the same as having a list of presets to flick through until you get the flavor you want. They've gone for speed and convenience over complexity and the ability to customise the sound. So I guess you just have to ask yourself, is that what you want?

Most importantly, don't let the above factors get in the way of the QUALITY of the plugin - i.e. the quality of the sound it creates, or rather how well it affects the sound source you are using it on. Tonally, this machine sounds absolutely fantastic, it is absolute quality and whoever made it at UA did an awesome job... As 'Manipulators of sound' surely that is the most important aspect to us, right?

The quality is as such that, although the interface is simple and streamlined, there is obviously alot going on under the hood of this thing that we can't see.
Bottom line: Verve sounds great and is extremely useful. Additionally, the kind folks at UA are giving the Essentials version of this baby away for free until April 30th - companies rarely do that - and so what have you got to lose? Ignore all the naysayers and try it for yourself, I can pretty much guarantee you will find it useful for something!

Thanks UA for an awesome, free product of top quality. You have my full support!

Fast and Sounds Great

Bought the full version. It's super fast to dial in great sounding saturation and color. The plugin does what it says and sounds great.

Good - Fun Distortion/Audio degradation Tool, needs update

This plugin is a lot of fun, and I’ve gotten some cool sounds from it, but I agree with a few other people here that this plugin needs a mix knob. While there other ways/workarounds this should be default in my opinion.

I have the essentials version, not much value added

While I am only using the essentials version, I can say there is not much value added here if you already own all of the real UA plugins. This is a light weight toy for people just getting started I think.
