The Art of Reverb
The 2016 Stereo Room reverb plug-in was crafted to simulate a great sounding ‘room’. Delay lengths, reflections, and other properties of the virtual room were carefully considered in the modeling. This combination of art and science results in a natural, yet distinctive sounding reverb. The simple intuitive controls allow you to fine-tune the perfect space for your sound — whether it’s a dark hallway or a bright studio vocal room.
Originally found on the SP2016 rackmount, which has been used on hit records for decades, the 2016 Stereo Room plug-in features hand-crafted artist presets from Joe Chiccarelli, George Massenburg, and Dave Pensado. Capable of both lush and subtle sounds, it’s also easy on your CPU. Use multiple instances to bring out the character of different parts of a track — 20 instances in one session? Go for it!

Own the Legend
Since its debut in 1982 as the go-to reverb in the SP2016 rack effects unit, Eventide’s Stereo Room algorithm has been the gold standard for a room reverb that sits nicely in a mix and positions your sound in an acoustical space without washing out the integrity of the source. This is why Allen Sides, Mick Guzauski, and Jack Douglas have been proud adopters and to this day it’s still in use in world-class studios like Ocean Way.
“The algorithms naturally simulate every aspect of the sound of a real enclosure — from the complex early reflections to the natural way in which the echo density increases with time, to the smooth decay of the reverb tail.” — Tony Agnello, Designer of the 2016 Stereo Room
