Has anyone here tried out 2CAudio's AETHER reverb - useable demo and mp3 downloadable here:
Its an algorithmic reverb and sounds remarkably good to me. In 'Sound on Sound' the reviewer found they could create closer-to-the-original reverbs (for hardware based reverbs like Bricasti) compared to convolution versions available from the same hardware for Altiverb.
It doesn't do the superb 'speaker placement' thing that Altiverb does so might not do as well for that 'location' feeling you get with Altiverb for orchestral work, but for other uses of reverb, I think its hard to beat. It's certainly the first software reverb I have heard that could seriously make me think of dumping my Lexicon hardware unit, and inspire me to bother to write a post about.
