I did see that there will be some sort of crossgrade offered by UAD but terms seem to be unknown at present. We will have to wait and see!

That new structures track is lovely; order placed!
I have to admit coming to it via the film Amadeus.....
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.
