Thanks Loren for the info.....from what I have read the company seems really stand up in support for discontinued products. I may just roll the dice.

Thanks very much for adding the guitar stuff to your demos, very interesting to hear these verbs (some of which I couldn't demo myself as I don't use an iLok thingy).
The thing that struck me is that they all sound good - dense and tonally balanced. I suppose it becomes a bit like fine wine appreciation - the differences are more perceptible with a more refined palette (so to speak) Saying that, I had a preference for the Sonnox Oxford, the lexicon PCM examples (very 'clean') and the softude TSAR 1's spatial effect.
I have to say though, that my favourites (for clean guitar) were still my two 'mysteryverbs', which are:
'mysteryverb1' A Nebula library (EMT140VNXT) of a sampled plate reverb
'mysteryverb1_2' Valhalla Uber-mod 'lateweb' preset (that I modified)
Ubermod is particularly interesting, as it's not sold as a reverb plugin as such, but you can really create things from scratch, with easy access to lots of parameters and it has extensive modulation parameters too. That Nebula library (to me) is just a great capture of a plate.
Lastly, one of my favourite verbs is actually the 'reverb' effect in Native Instrument's 'Razor' synth. I wish that was available as a standalone effect, as it's unique.
Faures - Continental Drift
Faures is René Margraff/Pillowdiver, Le Berger, and Elintseeker/Fuzz Lee. This release is beautiful--really unique. The primary form of instrumentation is layers upon layers of guitar, with occasional piano, synth, and glitchy electronics. The result is a shoegazing style "wall of sound," but much more restrained and delicate than what might be expected. The music is thick, but delicate. And the melodies, when they emerge, will melt you. Give this a shot; the first two tracks, in particular, are outstanding.
Sure we all love soundcloud cause it is fast and easy to share links, but Also I would be careful to judge a test done from Soundcloud the sound quality is not representative.
