Free Software Friday is our regular Friday feature here at the dBs blog. We dig the depths of the music production and media webosphere and discover what downloadable plugin freebies are worth double clicking each week.
Though we'd be the first to tell you that too many plugins will stifle creativity, we just can't say no to a new reverb, and Fuse Audio Labs' VREV-666 is the newest kid on the block to catch our attention.
An emulation and expansion on the Grampian 666; a rare spring reverb developed for the BBC in the 1960s, the VREV-666 is less concerned with painstakingly recreating its predecessor and instead takes its spirit into new and modern directions.
The Grampian 666 was a simple affair, sporting just a single control knob; level. On the VREV-666, there's four control knobs; Effect Limiter to prevent clipping, Effect Mix to control your wet/dry balance, Tone which cuts out the low end frequencies and Pre-Delay of up to 150ms.
You won't be creating any huge washy atmospheres with this plugin, but it is a great tool for anyone producing within reggae and dub.
VREV-666 is available for Windows and macOS (VST/VST3/AU/AAX/32 and 64-bit) and can be downloaded for free using the link below.
