Spring Reverb is an authentic spring reverb recreation that will add vintage character and grit to any audio track. It also includes novel features such as a fully automatable Shake control that will shake the virtual springs around for those thunderous spring effects. Get some recognizable character in your mix with the Spring Reverb!
When your mix lacks that certain something, Softube's Spring Reverb may very well be it. A spring reverb is built into a lot of classic guitar amplifiers and is consequently often used for guitars. But you wouldn't do it justice to think a reverb of this type was limited to guitars only. It can add a lot of personality and character to a vocal track, a snare drum, percussion, an electric organ or just about anything. It's very much a sound of its own and it will help set your mix apart from the rest.
Plus, there's not only one spring reverb sound. We included a few settings so you can choose which spring reverb character you're after. The number of springs and their tension highly affects the sound and feel, so it's up to you to determine what your track needs. There are also tube-driven Bass and Treble controls to further affect the sound. And if you want that explosive boom you'll get from shaking a true spring reverb (making the springs bounce and slam into each other), we modeled that too.
Springs Control the number of springs in use. There are three sets of springs in the reverb unit and you can choose how many of the sets you would like to use. Set the control to ONE for a more pronounced springy sound and to THREE for a smoother sound.
Shake Since we don't want you to smack your computer to get that thunderous springs-being-shaken sound, Spring Reverb features a slider that can be used to accomplish the same thing safely.
Tension Tunes up or down the tension of all three springs. Adjusting the Tension parameter will change the sound of the strings from slow and smooth (left) to quick and harsh (right). Together with the Springs knob, this control is an excellent tool to change the overall character of the reverb.
