I just wanted to say that I pretty much agree with everything Paul said except for this:
If you are after a great deep space reverb, then you should not look at Eventide, regardless of the preset name on the H7600.
Having used some of the higher end Eventide boxes, including an H8000 I would tend to disagree. I think the eventide verbs are very nice and I am not the only one. I know both Steve Roach and Robert Rich use them so they can't be all that bad, maybe not the end all of verbs but certainly up there with the great ones like the Lexicon's, who have made great reverbs for some time and sort of set the benchmark.
For me, I don't see the point in using outboard reverb units, when my 'studio' is almost totally
computer based. Factoring in the cost of the case, the PSU, circuit board etc., when it's just the
algorithm thats the important thing.
If all algorithms were the same then I would agree but they are not, some are better then others. In regards to plug-in reverbs compared to hardware I would go with a decent high end hardware box over any plug-in as none
of the plug-in reverbs that I have used (with the exception of DSP based plug-ins like those in the powercore) don't even come close to sounding as good. I haven't tried the one you posted but I will download the demo later and give it a go and see if my mind can be changed.
As for convolution verbs, they do sound better then algo-plug-ins for the most part. The only problem I have with them is they are basically a snap shot in time; they seem to work better with acoustic instruments when trying to recreate a specific environment, but with electronic music where you might need to stretch out, create a new environment they generally fall flat.
