Little Plate is exactly what the name suggests: a minimalistic plate reverb plugin with a great sound.
It offers the lush and warm sound usually associated with plate reverbs but with a modern twist.
Little Plate was inspired by the original EMT 140 plate reverb. The hardware legend is painstakingly emulated in plugin form to capture its spacious and musical sound.
While the original reverb could only achieve a modest five seconds of reverberation time, Little Plate can have infinite Decay Time – which means Little Plate’s reverb tails never fade away for a restless washout effect.
A great application of this would be to create an ambient soundscape out of any of your tracks and then layer it underneath for a more cohesive sound.
I usually achieve this effect by employing creatively return tracks with a bunch of reverbs and delays, but Little Plate can help you get a similar result much quicker.
To make sure your reverb sound doesn’t muddy up and clutter your mixes, Little Plate features a low-cut control to filter out frequencies up to 1Khz.
A cool feature is the Mod switch, which introduces slight modulation into the reverb tail.
These subtle and chaotic variations can result in a thicker and more natural sound, especially at long decay times on pitched instruments like keys, guitar, and vocal parts.
A Dry/Wet knob lets you dial in the right amount of reverb in your tracks. I would probably use it on return tracks with the Wet parameter set to 100% for more control.
Little Plate features 25 presets to get you started and accustomed to a variety of different creative applications.
It’s compatible with both Windows and macOS 64-bit machines, with AAX Native, AAX AudioSuite, VST 2, VST 3, and Audio Units (AU) as available formats.
Bear in mind that an internet connection is required at the time of activation.
