MangledVerb - Eventide Audio

Good Verb Gone Bad

MangledVerb™ is a unique effect combining reverb and distortion. Ported directly from the award-winning H9 Harmonizer®, MangledVerb is capable of creating lush reverbs, ripping distortion leads, and sound-sculpting musical chaos. Guitarists have used it for years to create signature sounds and now you can have it in your favorite DAW.

MangledVerb starts with a variable pre-delay which feeds a stereo reverb into a complex distortion effect. Sonically it can range from the light friction of a bow scraping a cello string to the mayhem of a caged beast being poked with a red hot flounder.

Tweak it Live

Like all the H9 Signature Series plug-ins, MangledVerb excels in live situations. The Ribbon is an innovative control that allows you to program two settings for any combination of the controls and seamlessly transition between them. The programmable HotSwitch allows you to instantly jump to an alternate setting at the push of a button. This combination of controls brings you as close as possible to the experience of tweaking real hardware.

Reviews

Unpredictable and weird.

It’s more wild and aggressive in its approach and skews closer to creative sound design than most reverbs out there. …If you want to get into some weird, wild and relatively unpredictable sound design possibilities, then I can’t recommend it enough.

Industrial strength sonics.

If you like your reverb with a measure of fire and brimstone, MangledVerb belongs in your effects library… We give it a strong recommendation. If you love reverb, but want an extra measure of industrial strength sonics, MangledVerb belongs on your shortlist.

Varied.

Kein anderer Hall beherrscht diese Spezialität so gut und variantenreich wie MangledVerb. (“No other reverb masters this specialty as well and varied as MangledVerb.”)
