    Wanted this amazing plugin for awhile now...

    by T. Spielmacher . 5 out of 5 stars

    Classy, smooth, versatile, elegant and truly professional sounding. So easy to be used in a tasteful way. Brings things to life without the fuss. A terrific and affordable weapon and tribute to the past.

    EMT 140 Plug-In always "at hand"

    by V. Romanov . 5 out of 5 stars

    I often use EMT 140 Plug-In vs Vocal BUS, great space emulation always "at hand". Rival Music pays respect to UAD

    Nice multi FX

    by G. NOTERIS . 5 out of 5 stars

    The reverb part of the plug is really special. A very "light" kind of sound that have the ability to become almost unoticeable in the mix. So if you want to apply a lot of reverb on a source without muddying your mix this unit really is a must.
    As the EMT 140 this unit is very easy to use. 4 parameters only but a lot of different results.

    The chorus part is really nice too. It can be very large and rich while supporting a mono reduction without sounding weak and phasy.

    The echo/delay part is nothing special.

    The space part doesn't compete against the Eventide Black Hole... but this is not an everyday FX.

    The reverb only would get 5 stars from me !

    fantastic reverb and more

    by J. Kehm . 5 out of 5 stars

    This ended up being my go to UAD reverb. It is not so much a dreamy reverb as it is a clean reverb that helps ground the source to the mix. The other FX are also wonderful.

    EMT 140

    by C. Freitas . 5 out of 5 stars

    On 80's I mixed a lot of classic albums here in Brasil at Transamérica Studios in São Paulo using the original EMT 240 and EMT 251 reberbs and when i tried the 140 UA Plug ins i came back 25 years and the new experience was amazing!

    The Best Reverb Plugin I have ever used

    by B. Trimpe . 5 out of 5 stars

    Jaw dropping. This is the kind of plugin that makes mixing more fun. It adds depth, width, and ambiance. It sounds great on all source material. Reverb plugins usually have really brittle, tinny, a/o false decay tails. I have tried a bunch of other plugins from IK Multimedia, Waves, and a few others. This thing buries them all in terms of sound and usability.

    I have been really impressed with most of the UA plugins but this thing is off the scale. I use it on every session now and get amazing results quickly and without fail.

    Sounds just like the original, lush, clear, and great tweaking capabilities. It's my go to plate reverb.

    The DAWs I use have their own built in reverbs, so to buy another reverb for a back bedroom studio seemed overkill to me. Then I tried the EMT140 Demo...... I expected it to sound great (and it does!) but the surprise was how EASY it was to get a great sound. In very little time, and with only a few tweaks, you're there, you have a reverb that sounds great in your mix.

    I've used many reverb plugins over the years and have always struggled to find one that I really can work with. I find most reverbs to be overly complex and even though I am somebody who uses presets as a basis and adjusts from there, if the options are overwhelming, I get frustrated. This plugin sounds great, but one of the main reasons that I love it is because the controls are few and straight to the point. You can easily adjust the sounds to your taste with the limited amount of knobs. I also want to mention that while most reverbs I always finding myself slowly turning down and down and down until there is a subtle ambience but not a really apparent reverb this might be the first reverb that beckons you to turn it up!

    Never worked with the hardware version but names of the presets are a bit useless. I've recorded at Oceanway studios, but what exatly does that mean as a preset name? is this a good vocal preset, drum preset, or guitar preset? Same thing with the others.
    It's best to just learn how to manage the parameters and avoid using the presets altogether, or you;ll find yourself going down the list everytime.
    Good reverb though.

    The original EMT plate reverb is a steel monster that needs an isolated vault of its own. With only rudimentary damping and EQ, it is more or less a "set and forget" creature. Instead of a soundproof room, the UA version (really three units in one) just needs a UAD card to run on. While lacking some of the more esoteric settings of other types of reverberators, this classic and classy reverb responds well to a bit of tweaking: for example, fine tune the frequency response to compliment the audio, using both the input filter and the reverb EQ. If you cut the low end or scoop out some mids, you can keep the level and reverb time up without muddying the mix, or you could boost the tops to to add a dreamy air to vocals or acoustic guitar.
    Use the modulation control to add movement and harmonic complexity to shimmering sounds.
    Try two instances in mono, panned Left and Right: this keeps the centre dry and there is much more sonic room to move.
    Or exaggerate the pre-delay to keep the reverb out of the way.
    Or send some signal from your delays into the reverb.
    Don't be afraid to run an EQ after the reverb.
    Or...or...

    A great workhorse reverb, and of course you can run several instances at once!
    Or use it alongside one of the other great UAD reverbs!

    One last hint: make the reverb obvious and do your tweaking. When you are satisfied, drop the reverb level...less is usually more. Automate your levels (and even your tweaks) if you need the reverb to be more obvious at the end of vocal lines etc.

    Reverbs... a good way to go.

    This one is special not for long reverberation, but from short to middle reverb, and it's a great sounding one!
    Also including some other nice effects. Sure I can't compare it with the real unit (not a professional guy) but to
    my ears is very good sounding, clean and useful for many sources.
    A little too expensive.. so I wait for a good coupon to come :) :) UA; Great Job!

    Request:
    A very good sounding Guitar/Bass; Amplifier/Cabinet new plug-in!
    I know it's not easy to have a real superb emulation...but maybe
    UAD's people could reach a goal!
    THANK YOU!

    I think this is the best reverb for drums and percussions there is on the software market. It has a nice non-metallic sound, it's kinda hard to explain, very smooth. Way better than dreamverb in my opinion. Also nice when you put it to the Master-Out, EQ it just right and turn it on to 5%, it "glues" the end mix to one piece. And for this price it's better than tc.

    So nice!

    by F. Rottier . 5 out of 5 stars

    Contrairement aux Lexicon 480L et 224 que j'ai vues et entendues dans de nombreux studios, je n'ai jamais rencontré l'EMT 250... Et c'est bien dommage car avec son séduisant design à la "Star Trek", elle surprend par la beauté, la richesse, la diversité des sons et la simplicité de ses commandes.
    J'ai un véritable coup de foudre pour ce plug-in d'une remarquable élégance sonore...et visuelle.

    J'adoooore!

    I bought a lot of plugs from UA (projpak, fairchild, cambridge, precEQ, preLim, BossFX, LA2A, 1176LN and the Plate 140).
    After i mixed a demo (using only the Plate 140 as reverb), i brought the tape to a professional audio-engineer (he had several hits in the german charts).

    His comment: "the reverb is not very satisfiying...".

    WOW!

    I trusted in all the comments and all the evaluations shown up in this area!

    I recognized, not to trust in too many people - in the future i will trust my own ears.

    Sure - plug-ins give you the possibility to get a certain quality to a low price.

    But in my opinion it is only "good" but not "great".

    There is a difference between hard- and software.

    Please be honest.

    Thank you, Bernie.
