Here is a custom reverb unit, the package is called Faustian and the unit is “Dattorro Reverb”, appearing under the Delays and Reverbs category. (I may add more units to the package in the future.)
The reverb itself is the topology described in Jon Dattorro’s paper Effect Design Part 1. It’s apparently first created by David Griesinger and used in various Lexicon reverbs. It’s also the basis of the reverb in MI Clouds (and probably other MI too).
It sounds pretty good to me. Nothing too wild, but an alternative to Freeverb. You can turn the decay up to 1 and get an infinite sustain.
It takes around 11% of your CPU.
Here’s an example, starting totally dry, turning the wet/dry up to 0.3 and then the decay up from 0.5 to 1.
(The right hand of In a Landscape by John Cage, bars 1-15.)
Edit: new version 0.1.0 (bumped from 0.0.1)
This version adds another reverb: Andromeda Nebula
So named because this is based on Tom Erb’s description of the Ursa Major Space Station in his talk (with some additions and extra guess work), so I picked another space themed name.
Apologies for the over-long demo. This is some unquantised (in pitch and time) bleeps and blops courtesy of a Music Thing Turing Machine. A few bleeps and blops dry, then increasingly extreme settings. It can get more unruly than the Dattorro Reverb.
This is a CPU-hog: ~38%. I’m hoping to get that down.
- High cut / low cut: filters in the feedback loop
- Decay — this is feedback amount. Beware above around 3.5. You need the adjust the high cut/ low cur frequencies to tame it.
- Mod: this is actually mod rate. Low values allows tones to build up; at higher values it spreads out towards white noise.
