Soundtoys SuperPlate now obtainable

Soundtoys have introduced that their long-awaited SuperPlate reverb plug-in is now obtainable. That includes meticulously modelled plate reverb models and analogue-style saturation processing, the plug-in guarantees to ship unmatched ranges of realism, with a vary of contemporary digital options similar to infinite decay occasions and built-in modulation growing its versatility.

Plates & Preamps

5 totally different electromechanical plate reverbs have been modelled for SuperPlate, with the plug-in’s algorithms capturing the sounds of EMT 140, EMT 240, Audicon, EcoPlate III and Stocktronics RX4000 models. SuperPlate can also be geared up with three modelled preamp choices: Tube, Strong-State and Clear, every of which can be utilized alongside any of the reverb fashions.

The Tube mode fashions the EMT V54 preamp utilized in early EMT 140 models, and can be utilized so as to add various quantities of harmonic distortion to the enter sign earlier than it reaches the reverb. Strong-State then emulates the EMT 162, a unit present in later variations of the 140 which additionally includes a built-in compressor that helps to tame transients. Lastly, Clear mode removes all the preamp modelling completely, preserving the sound of the plate fashions with out including any further harmonic distortion or dynamics processing.

Management & Modulation

A management panel on the prime of the GUI supplies entry to a vary of the plug-in’s key parameters. The most important management dictates the decay time, and makes it potential to attain for much longer occasions than are potential with bodily plate models. This prolonged vary is indicated by a purple marker across the management, and an infinite decay will be achieved by putting the management at its most setting.

A Modulation knob permits the creation of pitch-shifting results within the reverb sign, one thing that isn’t potential in a bodily plate reverb unit. The management affords a huge number of results that vary from delicate to excessive, and is alleged to be most helpful when processing pitched sources similar to keys, guitars and voices.

A Tweak button under the Decay parameter then supplies entry to a further set of controls, together with a two-band parametric EQ, settings for modulation velocity, an Auto-Decay characteristic and a stereo width processor. The Auto-Decay part is supplied with Threshold, Goal and Restoration Time parameters, and is able to decreasing the plug-in’s decay time primarily based on the enter sign’s quantity and dynamics, to keep away from extreme reverb buildup.

Bundle & Impact Rack

Along with being obtainable as a person plug-in, SuperPlate is included within the Soundtoys 5.4 bundle, in addition to being obtainable as an non-obligatory add-on for the corporate’s Impact Rack plug-in suite.
