I’ve written before about the importance of using reverb to get a great mix.
But with so many different makes and varieties of reverb around, especially plugins, the question is – which one do you use ?
Well for what it’s worth, TC Electronic make my favourite reverbs – particularly the ones included with their flagship System 6000 unit, which I’m lucky enough to use at work. But the truth is, a 6000 is a little pricey for most people’s home studio, including mine !
So, how does a free plugin sound instead ?
For the next three days, TC are offering everyone a free download of their M30 Reverb plugin, worth $79, in exchange for nothing but your email address.
I’d never used the M30 before – it’s a classic “Hall” type algorithm, derived from TC’s high-end products. It’s simple, easy-to-use, and sounds great.
If you’re interested to hear it in action, there’s a YouTube video here showing Robbie Bronnimann using the M30 on Howard Jones’ new album.
This is a great opportunity to try out a free product from one of the biggest names in reverb – go and get it !
