I just tried RP-VERB. To be honest, since I own Lexicon PCM Native already, I did not expect much from RP-VERB, I thought I would have no use for this reverb.
But I must say, I was very surpised when I did try it out, according to me it sounds not far from the Lexicon, and the fact that both reverbs
have a lot parameters and that PCM native have 7 different algorithm to choose from makes it harder to compare, with tweaking it is possible to get them to sound more alike that is for sure..
But my first impression was, that the RP-VERB
Gives the typical "lexicon" sound but for only 149 dollars. RP-VERB is one of the most smoothest reverbs I have heard, and when it comes to smoothness it is in the same league as Lexicon, you need to try it out yourself to believe me.
It is perfect to creat those big lush and floating soundscapes. It sounds perhaps more "cleaner" and more "fresh" then the Lexicon HALL.
The Clarity is good,, it definitely has an natural character and respect for the source audio, which is not common in budget reverbs.
I will keep RP-VERB for sure, I will use both PCM Native and RP-VERB in the future, they both complement each other, they both have a slightly different character suited for different sounds. Lexicon is still a better reverb, cause it is highly flexible algorithms and modulation, you can shape it a lot more then RP-VERB, which makes it very hard to compare them, but RP definitely have it's own color...
Would be interesting to hear others reflections also. This is without any doubt the BEST budget reverb right now. Fuck Aether, fuck Masterverb, fuck EOS, nebula, ArtsAcoustic,Breverb, Redline Reverb, This is many times better.
If you ask me RP-VERB and the price is very generous, if they wanted they could sell it for a lot more..cause it can seriously compete with the more expensive reverbs on the market.
You can download the demo and try it yourself.
I can recommended you begin with preset 052 "synth ambient longggggg". (80D/100W)
