In 1957, German company EMT made a breakthrough in audio technology with the release of the EMT 140 plate reverb, which utilized a resonating metal plate to create ambience. Nothing is quite like the wonderfully lush and distinctive tone of plate reverb, which still endures as part of the fabric of modern music.

Endorsed by EMT Studiotechnik GmbH, and painstakingly modeled by Universal Audio, the EMT® 140 Classic Plate Reverberator plug-in for UAD-2 hardware and Apollo interfaces expertly replicates the sonic signature of three uniquely different EMT 140s installed at The Plant Studios in Sausalito, CA.

The EMT 140 plug-in offers three distinct plates for varying reverb textures. Plates A and B use the original EMT electronics system, for which the plates themselves had intentionally not been tuned in some time. Plate C — the most full frequency plate — uses the more modern Martech electronics which had just been fully serviced. Emulations of both the original EMT 80 Hz shelf filter electronics and the popular aftermarket Martech electronics with their 12 dB cut filters are represented first in the signal path. The user is then presented with three switchable plate controllers (A, B and C) that recreate the mechanical dampers that decrease plate decay time, each with its own measured characteristic sound.

It's fine. Your recording is fine. It serves its purpose well and is enjoyable to listen to. Good lord, if I thought of every demo clip I upload to GS as a "release" I would never upload anything. :lol: :facepalm:
