AKG® BX 20 Spring Reverb
AKG BX 20 Spring Reverb
Finally a VST SPRING reverb that is FANTASTIC!
This is a dark horse. You don't realize it but it's one of UAD's most accurate and precise plugins.
This sounds just like the reverb in my best guitar amps. I use this from everything from guitars to vocals. It's rich, dark, eerie and voluptuous. It does not sound cartoony or plastic. It sounds and feels like a spring/tank. Like a great one.
The only con is, and it's a big one, is it takes a lot of resources. This see's a lot of usage in my studio and I highly recommend it. I also recommend finding a sound you like, printing it and taking it out of the chain so you can use other plugins -- unless you have an insane amount of DSP resources.
I have a hardware spring reverb in my modular synth and I use it a lot. I love having this spring available to bring out the classic ethereal noir type of sound in my keyboards and synths. I appreciate the stereo panning options, and love the flexibility of multiple tanks.
Really great verb
Love this verb. Tons of character.
BX 20 BUTTER
Out of all the reverb plugs, this has the the nicest creamy verb to my ears. Not only a versatile option but the one I seem to be reaching for the most since adding it to the arsenal of addictive plug ins from UA.
Nothing else like it!
This is the only reverb I've found that you can put on any sound and it's like... you can actually SEE the beautiful space it's in. Gives your mix a crazy front to back depth you never thought possible. So accurate and articulate and beautiful. Doesn't garbage up your mix like so many other reverbs. I had the pleasure of using a hardware BX20 in the past and I have to say, I think I'm even more blown away by the plug-in version. Slightly cleaner sounding probably, so it keeps your mix clear, like you went from standard def TV to 4K. Thanks guys!
Perfect for live setup
I use virtual instruments that are recorded super dry. Was using before zero latency convolution reverb to add some realistic depth, but I didn't like how it clouded the sound and made it sound far and less punchy. This one adds depth and warmth, without killing any aspect of the sound and blends perfectly with acoustic instruments I n room. Also works great on saxophone, bass and piano recorded with microphones. Really quick to configure it for great results and I can't switch back to any other reverb for live setup. Would probably use it for mixing as well. I love the sound!
must have reverb
i have a number of reverbs plugins but have never been a 100% happy with them on vocals until now. This reverb is lush warm and used in moderation on vocals just sounds right. On guitars for that distant far away feel its very nice indeed! Be warned if you demo it you'll want it.
This thing is absolutely stellar. Quickly became a must have reverb for me. Big thanks to UAD for this one!
Fantastic moody dark reverb
This is a very atmospheric and dark reverb, very moody and amazing for vocals, drums and anything you throw at it. It became my favourite reverb from Uad. It has some latency when used as an insert so not so Good for tracking but works fine in an aux. Highly recommended!
lush and rich sounding reverb that adds so much control over depth, distance, and ambiance of instruments and voices. it's been on everything i've recorded since the day i bought it.
Long Lush or Short Decay, both are great.
I really enjoy the depth with the long trails and rich harmonics that appear at the near-end of the decays on this unit. I feel lucky to even own a plugin version of this as it gives me access to something I would never have dreamed of using on my productions. Thanks UAD!
akg bx 20
being the owner of some spring reverb and some vintagetape and tube echo, including a wonderful great british spring reverb, I can say that the emulation is great and the plugin is proving very useful in my mix them where I need a dark reberber different than a plate
AKG reverb is AMAZING!
I had this plugin referred to me from a friend and I have to say, it was one of the better, if not best, reverb I've used to enhance
vocals! Definitely as advertised!
Damn, she's fine!
i thought I was set for verbs. This is my new fav. I used to like the EMT plates but this girl kills them all. I've been using her on everything these days. Bit of a dsp hog but it helps that PT 12 has track freezing.
Beautiful all around
I've been wanting a spring reverb from UAD, and this sounds wonderfully authentic to me. Feels/sounds like hardware. Exactly what I want from UAD - plugins that are totally different from what is already offered. Now... how about a Leslie speaker? And a looper... Pigtronix?
This thing is awesome!!!
Sounds like a beautiful rainbow surrounded by magical unicorns… Ok sorry that doesn't make any sense at all! But don't ever doubt that this plug is totally amazing and perfectly captures the charm and magic of the original unit!! Thank you UAD you guys are a revelation!

Glorious Spring Reverb
The first time I heard this spring reverb I had to have it. I love using spring reverbs on guitars and this one is just stunning.
This is why you want to go UAD!
This reverb sounds so beautifully, I had goosebumps while watching the demo video. It makes any guitar, acoustic, clean electric or even strings, mandolines and ukuleles sound dreamy, lush and expensive. My absolute go-to reverb for those applications.
It's very special character is a DEEP WIDE reverb. It's perfect for atmo-sounds. No, I have to be more accurate: It's the ONLY MUST HAVE REVERB for atmo sounds! What I mean is: It's the first time I FEEL like sitting in a wide cave. Unfortunatly it's very DSP hungry, But hey, most of authentic sounds costs DSP power, that's we 've bought the cards for :-)... Maybe it's possible in future update to decrease the decay time. But anyway : GOOD JOB!
Puts the bounce back into your mix
Love this thing! I use it on everything...drums, guitar, vox...even in parralel on the mix bus to give the mix extra width. It adds some serious depth and atmosphere to whatever you put it on. It is instantly my goto reverb and is really cool when you combine it with the EMT 140. Once again, you've made a great plugin.
