Reverb is an indispensable effect for anyone doing their own mixing (and don’t we all do our own mixing from time to time?). Finding the right reverb for the job can sometimes be tricky though. I can’t imagine ever having just one reverb that fills all my needs, but it’s great to have a few go-to units on hand as first-responders. ValhallaRoom is just such a plugin.
Created by Seattle’s own Sean Costello, ValhallaRoom is an algorithmic reverb with a clean, simple interface. Teakers will appreciate the wealth of controls, and the tweak-averse will find plenty of presets to play with. The Decay slider can be cranked up to an enormous 100 seconds, allowing for some massive-sounding effects. And the unique Depth slider lets you easily crossfade between early and late reflections, effectively moving the imaginary mic closer or further away.
