FabFilter Pro-R Reverb Plug-In Launches


Buying Choices

FabFilter has announced the availability of FabFilter Pro-R, described as a high-end algorithmic reverb plug-in with musical controls and a very natural sound. They say that its advanced algorithms have been carefully designed to blend well with the source and fit easily into a mix. Here's more details in FabFilter's own words...

FabFilter Pro-R is bursting with innovations like the intuitive Space control that seamlessly switches between dozens of room models with automatic decay time adjustment, and the industry-first Decay Rate EQ concept that introduces free adjustment of the decay time over the frequency spectrum. Together with the built-in Post EQ and an abundance of high-quality factory presets, FabFilter Pro-R delivers pristine sound quality and maximum ease of use.

A musical approach

FabFilter Pro-R takes a musical approach to reverb, offering user-friendly, non-technical controls like Brightness, Character, Distance, and Stereo Width to tweak the reverb sound. The stepless Space control lets the user fade between dozens of different, carefully-tuned room models, and automatically chooses a matching decay time for a natural-sounding result. Behind the scenes, each of these settings influences the internal algorithms in multiple ways to deliver exactly what was intended -- without requiring a degree in reverb science.

Shape the decay time
The decay time of a real room often varies wildly over the frequency spectrum, which is one of the key ingredients of a room's reverb character. To simulate this, the industry-first Decay Rate EQ concept in FabFilter Pro-R offers completely free adjustment of the decay time over the frequency spectrum. Since it uses parametric EQ bands instead of a traditional crossover system, it provides much more flexibility to shape the decay time characteristics. Together with the integrated six-band Post EQ, designing reverbs of any character has never been easier.

Key features:

  • Beautifully designed room models, ranging from small ambiences and rooms to large concert halls and huge cathedrals.
  • Carefully developed to easily sit in the mix, without causing undesirable coloration, density or phase problems.
  • Gorgeous Retina interface with large interactive reverb display featuring Decay Rate EQ and Post EQ curves.
  • Very easy to set up, with user-friendly, non-technical controls.
  • Space control, which smartly and smoothly combines the room model and decay time of the reverb -- choose from over a dozen carefully designed room models and seamlessly vary between them, without hearing clicks or unwanted artifacts.
  • Decay Rate control, changing the overall decay time from 50% to 200% of the current Space setting.
  • Intelligent Stereo Width control, ranging from pure mono to true stereo and beyond.
  • Distance control to adjust the proximity to the sound source in the selected space.
  • Character control that changes the sound from a clean, transparent decay to a lively reverb with pronounced reflections and echoes -- all the way to an over-modulated chorus-like effect.
  • Perfectly tuned Brightness control, affecting not only brightness, but also the decay of high frequencies.
  • Predelay control via the bottom bar, ranging from 0 to 500 ms, with optional tempo sync.
  • Innovative six-band Decay Rate EQ with Low/High Shelf, Bell, and Notch filters. (Compared to the commonly used low- and high-crossover system, the Decay Rate EQ opens up a world of possibilities by giving users full control over the decay rate at different frequencies.)
  • Six-band Post EQ to equalize the final reverb sound with Low/High Cut up to 96 dB/oct, Low/High Shelf, and Bell filters. (Together with the Decay Rate EQ, this lets users design reverbs of any style or character.)
  • Real-time spectrum analyzer that also visualizes the decay time at different frequencies.
  • Full Screen mode, offering a large analyzer display and Decay Rate EQ and Post EQ controller.
  • Multiple interface sizes: Medium, Large, and Extra Large.
  • Retina support on OS X and High DPI support on Windows.
  • GPU-powered graphics acceleration.
  • Supports common Pro Tools hardware control surfaces.


System requirements on Windows are either Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista or XP and a VST 2/3 host, or Pro Tools, or Mac OS X 10.6 or higher with Intel processor, and an Audio Units host, VST 2/3 host, or Pro Tools. Both 32-bit and 64-bit hosts are supported.

Pricing and Availability:
FabFilter Pro-R is now available for EUR 169, USD 199 or GBP 149, supporting both Windows and Mac OS X in VST and VST 3, Audio Units, AAX, RTAS, and AudioSuite plug-in formats. Bundles with FabFilter Pro-R and other FabFilter plug-ins are also available.

Existing FabFilter customers can purchase FabFilter Pro-R with very attractive discounts by logging in to their online user account.
