One can never have enough plate reverbs in their effects armory, can they? With Perfect Plate XL, developer Denise presents a new and expanded version of its plate reverb plug-in. Behind the effect is Denise’ proprietary TXVerb technology, which is about delivering a very natural reproduction of plate reverbs. The expanded version of Perfect Room also contains further parameters for shaping the effects section. This makes it more exciting for sound designers and producers alike.
Denise Perfect Plate XL
To start off with, the Denise Perfect Plate XL has three new parameters to tinker with – Reso, Drive and Rotate. Also added is an equalizer with six bands, that you can find in the Analyzer view. The EQ makes it possible to push the reverb from subtle to very extreme. As a plate reverb, Perfect Plate XL can be lush and dense, or resonant and metallic – perfect for creative drums and guitars. What’s more, the tool features an additional parameter that dampens the sound. Overall, the parameters let you adjust how quickly and how long the plate vibrates, how long it takes for it to react to the input signal; how much space it takes, and of course, how wild it sounds!
The audio samples in the demo video below showcase the many options you have for letting vocals and instruments float through virtual chambers. All parameters affect the effect live and in real-time.
