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.
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!
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!
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.
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...".
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.
Hi, update on the UAD version 6 1 is no longer my EMT 140. what do I do now?
This reverb does something special. It's not a clinical reverb but rather a character one. I've been using it to achieve the Lord Huron/folksy/reverb wash effect on some of my recent songs. I love it! I love the ease of use. Having all the controls on the front panel is so helpful and everything is clearly marked. It's a winner!
I love this reverb to bits, you can dial in so much wet signal before it muddies your mix. My favorite application is for creating large room reverbs, that character of it is just so silky and smooth and doesn't create loads of screaming resonances like a lot of other verbs. The only thing is you cant do the PROPER small room/gated sounding reverbs that you can with say, some Native convolution verbs, but I guess that's just a limit of the original hardware. Amazing reverb all round, my go to verb for nearly everything now. I just made a tune with loads of it on and it's amazing how clean it still sounds.
Love the sound ! stands out no question about it. love it in the voc and horns
The EMT-140 is a smooth reverb that makes it easy to dial in a lush vocal sound on slower or vintage sounding tracks. Nice for longer vocal or horn verbs. Try pairing it with a shorter reverb (on 2 different aux sends) to balance between ER and larger sense of space.
I love the EMT 140 from UA. It had been on my wish list since I got on the platform. It's really good on both short and long tails. Between this and the spacier Lexicon, which I also have, I can cover most of my reverb needs. Sometime, I hope to pick up the Ocean Way for drums and room sounds, but the EMT 140 is great on vocals, snare, synth sounds, and as a catch-all send in my rock mixes.
The EMT140 is a great reverb unit that lets you dial in the right tone with the EQ section. It's simple, sounds great, and is very versatile.
The only thing it needs is an upgrade to the graphics -- they're a little cheesy by today's standards. Other than that, it's great.
really sound good.
it must have more parameters
, space design on logic or crs reverbs in ik multimedia that have much more posibilitys of design revebs
I have a lot of reverb plugins, Waves, Sonnox, Overloud, IK multimedia and more.
And I had used to insert the Sonnox reverb especially.
Now I've got the UA EMT 140.
This is the most beautiful, just Real and Fantastic sounds.
The density and width are great.
I'll continue to use this reverb on Vocals, Drums.
I have different native reverb plugins (algorithmic, and convolution) and I used many hardware one's live and in studio (tc electronic, lexicon, ...)
I wasn't going to buy this plugin because I was quite satisfied with what I have;
when I bought my uad-2 duo I got an offer to have this plugin and the neve 88rs for free and I asked UAD to exchange the emt for a fairchild 670...
the gave me both for free!
thank god they did!!!
I just love this plugin
I'm the kind of guy who likes to read manuals and understand and tweak every parameter, I didn't felt the need of doing so with this plugin it just sounds sooo good "as is": just choose a preset and try to change plate model, predelay and decay time and you're there
This machine makes my sound very calm.
Higher Frequency than Lexicon, I like this.
Not so amazing as everybody says, but a good reverb.
Great lush rever, The input filter is especially useful. The three plates all have a unique character. They all sound so good in different ways, it sometimes takes me a while to decide which one i want to use! It would be great if you could morph between them, seamlessly.
I use it on nearly every mix. Such a dense and deep sounding plate.
This reverb is really good. You can add space without muddying your mix. It's bright but it sounds pleasureble. Best soft plate I have.
I like this, it sounds great. It is another very useful flavor in my toolbox.
