In case there’s still room under the tree, U-he offers Protoverb, a free experimental reverb based on the idea of a “room simulator”.
While most algorithmic reverbs try to avoid resonances or model the reflections of sound from a rooms walls, Protoverb does the opposite: it builds up as many room resonances as possible, modeling the body of air in the room. It therefore does not need to modulate or colour the signal, resulting in a very natural-sounding reverberation with some interesting features: Long standing frequencies resonate louder, multiple instruments don’t mash into a diffuse mud, “ghost echo” effect on short melodies…
