H-Reverb can be a bit cpu intensive though, and while VVV is the best for cpu, it isn't geared so much towards realism if that's what you're going for... Valhalla Rooms would be better for that. Valhalla has a nice demo policy, you can demo their plugins as long as you like but the audio fades out every 45 seconds and you can't save presets.

I was hoping RO-140 would make it easy to sound like the vocalist (dry vocal sample in this case) was trapped in a metal container, but found it surprisingly hard to convey that....

Any news on Big Sur (not M1, just the OS)?

Anyone compared this directly to Liquidsonics Lustrous Plates?

I have both, dont remember last time I used RO-140, it always gets replaced by something else. Sounds flat to me.
Used lustrous plates today and it always stays. When I want plate vibe I go with lustrous plates.

Thanks for your insight! Lustrous is the "be-all, end-all" for me - so good to know it hasn't been bettered.

I prefer the TA plate. *shrug*

I had a hard time finding a good use for this at first. Definitely responds better to some material than others, but once it clicks it's very nice.

Do these still show up in Pro Tools under a •Wrapped Plugins• category?

Yes, like an actual plate. I'm really impressed with this. Also just like in the real world, you have to be thinking about what you are sending to it and how to shape it.

I've found that part of it's behavior to be really consistent with my experiences with plates. That's also why I am absolutely loving the process of using it and what I'm getting out of it with just a little effort.

It's not like Lustrous whereby anything you send to it gets wrapped in a glorious, glossy, sheen. (Not what all plates do btw) That type of easy success with a plugin sometimes keeps you from discovering the good stuff you have to work for. Plates and Spring reverbs were sometimes a lot of pain and effort, but worth it.

I wouldn't trade this particular plugin for anything, nothing sounds like it. Great job Black Rooster for creating a true asset.
