"Eight of history's greatest hardware reverb units in one package. With its simplicity being, mostly, a positive, VerbSuite Classics takes convolution to new heights, delivering the essence of eight of the finest reverbs of all time.

Seventh Heaven Professional is simplicity itself to use, sounds great, and offers more than enough editing flexibility for normal use. What’s not to like?

With enough time and effort, you can coax a good sound out of most reverbs, but what sets products like Seventh Heaven apart is that it’s impossible to get a bad sound from it. Seventh Heaven Professional is simplicity itself to use, sounds great, and offers more than enough editing flexibility for normal use. What’s not to like?
Sam Inglis – Sound On Sound.

Seventh Heaven Professional nails the Bricasti sound and vibe in a convolution plugin that feels amazingly algorithmic. Ultimately, it comes down to how many presets and how much control you feel you need – bearing in mind that, like the M7, Seventh Heaven often just works with minimal or no user input – and what you’re prepared to pay, but the most important thing is that both of them bring the authentic sound of one of the greatest hardware reverbs ever made to the DAW in real style.”
Music Radar.

“As far as I’m concerned, it gets the highest rating possible and the Best Product Award. It’s been almost five years since I started writing reviews for Audiofanzine and I think it’s the first time I’ve ever given such a rating, but I have no doubts about it because Seventh Heaven Professional is hands down the best software reverb available today.

Seventh Heaven Professional is truly angelic and sponges that ethereality on to pretty much everything it touches. Because it does allow you to pump up the bass, it’s a great tool for doubling and intensifying kick drums, bass and more, while still making your vocals, guitar and whatever else you thrown in to it sound holy.

“We have quite a good number of awesome reverb plug-ins out there, for all tastes and pockets, and Seventh Heaven Professional is definitely among the best”

Reverberate II reverb plugin

A great update to an already great convolution reverb. I believe this is going to be a very popular reverb with both music and post-production users.”
Dan Cooper – Pro Tools Expert

“Behind the plain exterior of Reverberate 2 lurks a hugely impressive convolution reverb, which offers new levels of realism in recreating time-variant sources.

All in all, though, at the asking price, Reverberate 2 is an absolute bargain. Until my lottery numbers come up and I can afford that M7, I’ve no doubt that Reverberate 2 will be seeing a great deal of use in my mixes.”
Sam Inglis – Sound On Sound

A sonically impressive, flexible and intuitive convolution reverb that offers an expensive sound and potential-packed Fusion-IR technology at a great price.

Reverberate 2 is one of the best convolution reverbs around, and a steal at this price.”
Music Radar

An excellent product that will delight all fans of convolution reverb. And to be honest, I think even algorithm-based reverb fans ought to give it a try, too, just out of simple curiosity, considering how convincing Reverberate 2 is.”
AudioFanzine

“By now I suspect you’ve gotten the idea that I think Reverberate 2 is pretty special.  I already had a handful of very fine convolution reverbs installed on my DAW computer, and some of those were accompanied by superbly-produced IR collections that covered the breadth of types of natural spaces.  I think there’s a very good chance I will never feel inclined to use any of them again, that’s how spectacular Reverberate 2 sounds to me.  In fact, if there were to be no further advances in reverb technology in my lifetime, I would feel no disappointment.”
Soundbytes Magazine

The fact that it doesn’t try to emulate a specific classic hardware plate (or plates), but instead offers so many plate-sound variations is an advantage, in a way. Rather than trying to sound like a particular piece of gear, it takes a more generic, but highly flexible approach, and gives you the control to shape the sound as you see fit for your mix. Between its smart feature set and excellent sound, Lustrous Plates has what it takes to be a significant player in the plate reverb plug-in market.
Mike Levine – Mix Magazine

“So, Lustrous Plates gets an enthusiastic thumbs-up from me. I always quite liked the sound of ValhallaPlate, but having compared it to Lustrous Plates … well let’s just say “There’s a new plate in town”
Sound Bytes Magazine

A very solid entry for a plate reverb emulation.”
Green Light Sound

All in all, Illusion is a serious reverb plug-in for those that take reverb seriously. The sounds of the reverbs are easy to place in any mix and you’ll find that subtle amounts of short room reverbs within Illusion work brilliantly at adding context and depth that, for me at least, suit my style of mixing.

If you are a stickler for quality reverbs in your mixes then you have got to consider Illusion. Like previous LiquidSonic reverbs, Illusion will not disappoint.”
Dan Cooper – Production Expert

“If you haven’t gotten the idea yet, I will say again that I simply love Liquidsonics reverbs, and Illusion is no exception…One class of user may wish to put Illusion at the top of their list: sound track audio engineers.  This is because the Synthetic Spaces category of presets has special-effect presets well-tailored to soundtrack application.

But Liquidsonics reverbs are all exceptional plug-ins and all are worth your attention.  Liquidsonics just keeps the hits on coming!”
