Thanks for the heads up on Halo Reverb, Anthony.  Unfortunately, I couldn't get Reaper to recognize it, though for reason AudioMulch does.  The installation process is pretty nonintuitive.  iLok is pretty annoying.  I'm pretty satisfied with Lexicon and Eventide's Blackhole reverb, though it would nice to find a good chamber-style reverb.

語り部 - Sketches
This has a spiritual, Alio-Die-like vibe that I really enjoy. Slow moving textures and some organic elements. Digital only.

Purl - Form is Emptiness
Spacious ambient with dub elements from the master. This is better than much of his celebrated work on Silent Season. Worth a listen.

Has anyone tried Adaptiverb ?

I really should give it a go.
Sounds like it has a huge cpu hit though.

Ran a modular patch Im working on through the Haloverb this morning....Like it.  Its very good on details, small things and I like the space it creates.  Also tried the whole mix through its "huge warehouse" preset and compared it to a demo of shimmer I have and also my eclipse hardware unit.  The haloverb did very well against these two.....not much that I have found can match the eclipse for spacial placement and smoothness with such a sweet brightness to it but the haloverb proved to be a good alternate flavor especially using the pre filter to shape the sound.....lowering the high frequencies really pushed the sound stage almost outside the huge warehouse and muffled the patch with the occasional sizzle slipping through. It can be very creative tool depending on how it is used. 

It will be good addition to my reverb quiver!

Cheers Julio,

Yes, it's the holy Grail for us ambient types :) I've been looking at B-format recorded reverb impulse responses - converted to binaural, as I always wanted to hear a 'true surround' reverb (I'd make some myself, but I don't have the equipment). Interesting results, so far.

APK, cool to see you posting here again.

Yes Anthony, I think all the Valhalla reverbs are very serious verbs for the money and actual well worth more.  Shimmer is a go to for ambient but what I have heard of the vintageverb is really special.

One verb to look for is Eos from audio damage, something Sean Costello wrote the code before he started Valhalla DSP.

Interesting side note I had Halls of Valhalla sd card  in a Tiptop Audio FX eurorack module and I did not like it....but much in modular fx just does not sit right with me compared to external.

Blackhole is on my radar as I would like to port some of the magic from my Eclipse into software.

We should revisit the reverb plugin demos that I made a while back with Pete graciously providing acoustic guitar to process.

Yep, I expect it will be a very good reverb for traditional purposes. Great price. Good to see filters and a widening control.
And that is a damn fine green !
The 7 seconds is indeed a limiting factor for deep ambiance. Freeze function would have been useful.

I'm still a convert to the Valhalla Room reverb at $50.

And the Eventide Blackhole was a great deal when it was on for $50 a while back.

I bought it today but have not tested it yet....I will do so tomorrow and report back.

This is not your lost in space reverb but from what I have heard is a solid all round studio work "horseverb" 

Im still looking for the verb that gives me up close presence yet with space....in software.
