Eventide has announced availability of the SP2016 Reverb plug-in, which they say perfectly recreates a classic collection of reverb algorithms from its history-making SP2016, pro audio’s first rack-mount multi-effects processor. Here’s the story in their own words…
The original SP2016 introduced the concept of ‘plug-ins’ to a perplexed pro audio world way back in 1982! Revered for its signature reverbs by mix and recording engineers like Mick Guzauski, Roy Hendrickson, George Massenburg, Dave Pensado, and Allen Sides, to name but a notable few, the SP2016 can be heard on countless hit records, from Madonna to Mariah Carey and Adele to Emimen.
“The classic Eventide SP2016 has always been my go-to reverb,” says legendary mix engineer Dave Pensado. “It has the unique ability to make vocals, instruments, and drums sit perfectly in a mix. The new SP2016 plug-in now gives us all access to this incredible reverb, and no one is happier about this than me!”
Precisely modelling every aspect of those hardware units was neither quick nor easy, but today the must-have sonic beauty bestowed by these reverb classics can be applied to anything — in-the-box or live.
Pricing and Availability:
The new SP2016 Reverb (MSRP $249.00 USD) is available as an AAX/AU/VST plug-in for Mac and PC at a promo price of $79.00 USD thru October 31, 2018. Owners of Eventide’s 2016 Stereo Room or Anthology XI can cross-grade for $29.00 USD during the promo period.
