It’s been a while since I’ve done a Free Plugin Of the Week post, I intend to have a new one every Monday. See all the previous posts in the series.
Bootsie epicVerb isn’t brand new, but over the past few months its become my favorite free reverb.
The “epicVerb” reverberation device aims at both: Tight small room and ambience effect simulation well suited to modern drum and vocal productions up to large “epic” halls as known from high quality outboard gear. This reverbs sound ranges from rather concrete or even edgy up to smooth, transparent and artifact free reverb tails. It is designed for maximum flexibility and usability and to take place as a true high quality stereo main reverb.
“epicVerb” features two different reverberation modes and 6 different stereo early reflection models. There are some standard reverb controls like ‘TIME’, ‘DAMP’ or ’PRE-DELAY’ as well as reverb tail modulation and detailed control over very first reflection patterns as an option.
It offers different reverb time handling for high and low frequencies as well as a musical sounding EQ section containing two “BootEQ” equalizers and additional high- and lowpass filtering.
As I said before, this is my favorite free reverb, it’s easy to use, has many great preset settings and sounds great. I don’t use it on all my mixes, but I’m thankful to have it in the mixing toolbox. Be sure to check out Bootsie’s many other great free plugins.
PC – VST

Cool except not a MAC compatible tool.. shame looks nice.
Cool-lookin’ plug. Question: do you use a VST-wrapper to get these into Pro Tools? Or do you just use ’em in Sonar?
I wrap it.
Very nice reverb plugin! Going to put it in everyday use 🙂
