songboy's review - Audio Damage ADverb

I had no compatibility issues running this plugin on my macbook.  As for manuals, there is really no need for one, this is a emulation of a very simple plate reverb unit.  If you had experience with one before, this is going to be cake for you, if not, you will get a handle on it really quick. 
Yes, the configuration and setup is very simple.  There are three knobs, two faders and five buttons to tweak and they all make sense even if its your first time using a reverb unit.  All the typical functions are easily accessible via the front (and only face) of this unit.


I use this mainly on drum samples and so far it has worked like a champ.  There has been no crashes that have resulted from this plugin as far as I can tell as well as any presets I make are always found with ease.  I will give this a 9 out of 10 for performance.  Its very easy to use, very good sounding and its large interface is easy to see.  I have been using this plugin for about 6 months.


What I like most about this unit is its easy to use interface.  Its large, and its designed to look like an old plate reverb rack unit.  I like when audio plugin designers do that because I am very comfortable around physical gear.  I find that some plugins are small and have convoluted interfaces which slow down my work flow.  I can't really say I dislike this unit but I have found a slightly better plate reverb option in the IK multimedia CSR reverb pack.  I find the IK just a little more warm and realistic, but I still use the ADverb on drums and other things I don't want too much "realism" on.  I paid $39 for this unit and I have used a lot over the past couple months so I think its a fair price for a good plugin.  I have used the CSR reverb from IK multimedia as well as the reverbs in both Logic 9 and Ableton 8.  This one can hold its own ground. 
For $39, yeah, I would buy it again.  I still like to use it.
