Wow from a amateur music recordist.
While it's true I'm a card carrying union (42 years in local 695) production sound mixer (we record dialog on location or stages) for film, TV, and commercials, I am an amateur when it comes to music recording as it is a passion and hobby, not a job. Been having fun doing so for 15 years now. Some years back I moved up from a PT 003 rig to a Apollo 16 and Apollo twin & UAD2 Satellite rig. I heard the improvement straight away. I've bought a descent number of cool plugins from UA and have had a blast learning to use them. When Capitol Chambers came out I was tempted but I also had many other plugins that covered the territory and was reluctant at the price point to jump in. I've been to Capitol EMI Studio A three times for filming. Still awed by those shoots, seeing and being in the A&B rooms. I met many cool people there while filming. I also read and knew about the chambers and their history. Last time I was there I met a fellow (wish I remembered his name) mixing in Studio C. He was tweaking a mix using the chamber(s). He let me watch and listen to him for awhile. As I thanked him when I left to go back to our shoot, he casually mentioned that mixers/producers/artist from all over the world send work there to use the chambers. That was an eye opener for me. Never would of occurred to me. Thinking back to that I decided to pull the trigger on Capitol Chambers. Really glad I did. The two songs I've used it on so far were better by far(to my ears). It takes a great effort on my behalf to not over use it. Big fan of Capitol Chambers and UA.
This reverb sounds amazing! I've seen a lot of other producers in Nashville using it already. Definitely my new go-to for vocals
The awesome Capital Chambers
Here at my studio Stiwdio Un I have many hardware and software reverbs but the capital chambers are now my go to for almost everything I have recorded since buying them. They are simply magical. You will not regret buying this plugin. Totally awesome.
3 dimensional sweetness
This thing is rich! Space for days. I’m glad I bought it.
This one is amazing!!
Old school lush!
Love this verb on vocals and spacey guitars .... UAD does it again!!
The Image You've Been Waiting For...
Ocean Way = Mini Me
Capital Chambers = Dr. Evil
Ok, when deciding on which audio interface to purchase, the big question you need to ask is, “Can it run Capital Chambers?” If not, walk away. Actually, run away.
This is thee best reverb plug-in I have ever heard on vocals. It breathes with the singer in and around a track. It can hold the vocalist on a cloud of velvet riding just on top of the mix. The second I heard it I got the chills with the hair on my arms standing straight up. Tears filled my eyes it sounded to so good, it sounded so real. And to think I was worried that it would sound old school pre demo. It is simply amazing.
UAD has given us a gift. A digital recreation of the most incredible sounding reverb chambers in the world. Each and everyone of us can now own a piece of history and use it to enhance our music and mixes. All with a click or two of the mouse. Unbelievable!
A brilliant work of art and technology. Great job to all that had a part of making this plugin. Salute.
Please use sparingly.
We don't want this showing up on every record or ours won't sound original anymore.
Wow! . . . . Wow!
NOW, WHAT DO I HAVE ALL THESE OTHER REVERBS FOR?
It's true. One of the best attributes of UAD's plug-ins is which units they choose to emulate. Capitol Chambers was a institution unto itself and UAD was so clever as to choose it. And they, of course, nailed it.
Very nice plugin.
The Best Reverb ive ever heard, absolutely amazing on Vocals to say the least.
Lush, beautiful spacial heaven
These echo chambers are second to none, and the plug-in recreates their unique sound beautifully. Unlike other types of reverb, these chambers can impart a sense of space without over powering the source. You sense the sound more than hear it.
Like an orgasm!
It's a sound I've never felt as a reverb plug-in. It's deep, wide, detailed, beautiful and wonderful. It can really control great sounds very simply. I understand why they proudly lunched this product. It's really amazing. You can feel orgasm with your ears. This is true. Yeah, it's real.
I waited too long to buy it...
The reverb I've been looking for!!
It's a real beauty. Been waiting for an ITB reverb this good for a long time. I've got an old EMT140, and several outboard reverbs, and this is the one (not being in the Capitol buildings!) I can't recreate in the studio. Full props to UAD for this one, just beautifully modelled. Should be an instant purchase.
very nice sounding reverb
