Musikmesse 2016: Eventide Unveil Tverb Reverb Plugin

Eventide has collaborated with legendary producer, engineer and musician Tony Visconti to create the Tverb Reverb Plugin, brand new for Musikmesse 2016.

While producing David Bowie's twelfth studio album Heros, inspired by the power of Bowie's voice, Visconti invented a stunning recording technique. Setting up three microphones in the hall, the first was used for Bowie to sing directly into, a second was then positioned about 15ft away and the third further back in the hall. Visconti then placed gates on the second and third microphones that were set to open as Bowie sang louder and louder.

The Tverb plugin is designed to emulate that iconic sound, integrating three completely independent lush reverbs with compression and selectable polar patterns on microphone 1 and adjustable gates on both microphones 2 and 3.

This creates the perfect starting point while the additional features and the use of stereo microphones enhance the effect while producing a variety of soundscapes. Additionally DAW automation can be used to program the microphone locations and spacing in real-time to offer a variety of natural sounding acoustic environments.

''One of the challenges in developing Tverb was to design reverbs that captured the rich ambience of the Meistersaal and yet were effective, ensuring that the plugin would run native without burdening the DAW's CPU. By running three independent reverbs, the two far microphones can be convincingly placed anywhere in the hall.'' - Eventide's Tony Agnello.

''I have plugins that emulate rooms but this concept, to have the set-up all on one page, I never thought it was possible. The three microphones are correct, the room is correct, and now that it's in stereo, you're actually hearing something that i never got around to doing when i was in Berlin. It's just great.'' - Tony Visconti.
