A true giant
of the industry
Our Rev PLATE-140 is a circuit-accurate recreation of the iconic EMT®️ 140 reverb and its vacuum tube preamp. A classic, full bodied studio plate reverb with a lush tail, a dream come true for vocals, and adding that sought-after glue and space to your mix.
The original EMT®️ 140 was breakthrough technology: the world’s first plate reverb. Brighter and more versatile than the spring reverbs and echo chambers that preceded it, this plate reverb unit became part of practically every top studio’s arsenal. It was a serious investment, costing as much as a house, and weighing more than 3 people. Now, thanks to our exclusive physical modeling technology, you can use this studio legend in your DAW, without breaking the bank, or breaking your back!
Our reimagined version lets you adjust the pre-delay to let your original sound have space, a high-pass filter on the input to hone its tone, integrated chorus, and even a post reverb EQ to make sure the effect perfectly complements your track. Rev PLATE-140 lets you filter and EQ your sound before it even hits the plate, so you can get rid of all those muddy or bright frequencies you don’t want to enjoy a lush, vintage reverb whenever you like.

ProducerI was using the spring reverb (I’m a huge fan of springs) and this is by far the best spring plugin I’ve ever tried. So versatile and cool with all the extra functions. Such a juicy and inspiring sound. Wow…
Mix Engineer (Dave Matthews, Fiona Apple, John Mayer)Very vibey spring reverb like the old spring box reverb I would carry session to session. The “tank” settings make life easy when searching for a sound.
