TAL-Reverb-4 Is A FREE Reverb VST/AU Plugin With 80s Character

6

Togu Audio Line has released an updated version of TAL-Reverb-4, a freeware plate reverb effect in VST, AU, and AAX plugin formats for digital audio workstations on PC and Mac.

The updated version of TAL-Reverb-4 comes with a freshly designed user interface and implements multiple algorithm updates which were aimed at improving the sound quality. The plugin is now more flexible, providing direct control over multiple algorithm parameters like modulation amount and rate, reverb diffusion, and room size. This allows the user to customize TAL-Reverb-4’s plate reverb algorithm to better suit a wider variety of sound sources and mixing scenarios.

Reverb plugins, especially good sounding ones, can eat up available CPU resources rather quickly but that is not the case here. Much like its previous iterations, TAL-Reverb-4 v2 remains a well-optimized plugin which doesn’t put too much strain on the processing unit. In addition, the interface design has received a facelift – it looks much cleaner than before and comes in a size which will perfectly fit modern high-resolution screens.

If you’re on a lookout for a vintage sounding plate reverb plugin, this freeware offering from Togu Audio Line is well worth a try. I’ve always been a fan of TAL’s reverb plugin line, due to their excellent sound and uncomplicated UI design. Still, the latest version of TAL-Reverb-4 is undoubtedly the most well-made one so far. It does wonders on vocals, but you can also use it on synth leads, pads, or even drums if you need some of that huge 80s plate reverb sound in your mix.

One thing to keep in mind, though, is that TAL-Reverb-4 only supports stereo audio tracks. If you plan on using it on a mono source such as a vocal recorded with a mono microphone, make sure that it is loaded on a stereo track in your digital audio workstation of choice.

TAL-Reverb-4 is available for free download via Togu Audio Line (29.3 MB download size, ZIP archive, 32-bit & 64-bit VST/AU/AAX plugin format for Windows & MacOS).

  1. i keep downloading and installing it, but i only get the old version, i tried copying the dll, i tried running the installer. i tried uninstall the old version.weird

    • Click the grey icon to download the new version. The links below are for the previous version.
      I clicked them by mistake at the first attempt.

    • First off, are you sure you downloaded the right version? You should click the icon with the arrow and not the text link beneath it. That’s the old version. There should be no v1 in the name of the downloaded archive.
      If that’s not the case, then try removing the old version and new one and install or copy just the new one. Also, try renaming the vst .dll file to something different (like just “Tal-reverb”). Depending on the DAW you use you could even try rescaning the plugins.
      Usually the problem is that the updated version of a plugin has the same ID as the previous one, and if you have both version and they don’t have an unique ID, they will interfere with one another. So when you drop a plugin your software won’t know which one to put.
      Hope this helps! :)

  2. A very nice reverb! Easy to use, with intuitive controls. Snares sound sick when sent on it, my to go reverb from now on!
