Soundtoys Little Plate
Simple Plate Reverb Plugin
The unmistakable plate reverb sound - warm, rich, and spacious - is now at your fingertips.
Inspired by the original EMT 140 plate reverb, we captured the gorgeous sound and vibe of this studio classic and turned it into a fun and musically inspiring plug-in. And Soundtoys couldn't resist pushing the limits of reality, so they added a couple of fun twists that let you take Little Plate to spaces the original hardware only dreamed of.
Simple Control, Infinite Possibilities
Once they recreated the iconic 140 sound, Soundtoys couldn't resist going even further.
While the original reverb could only muster a modest five seconds of reverberation time, we pushed that number higher. A lot higher. With Decay Time set to infinity, Little Plate's reverb tails never fade away.
Cut the Clutter
Keep your reverb and your mixes clean with the built-in Low Cut filter.
Sometimes the low-frequency build-up in reverbs can get a little out of control. Use the Low Cut control to tame those boomy bass frequencies.
Flip the mod switch to introduce slight modulation into the reverb tail.
These subtle and chaotic variations can result in a thicker and smoother sound, especially at long decay times on pitched instruments like keys, guitar, and voice.
At Soundtoys, they have a reputation for obsessing over legendary hardware. But when they decided to build their first reverb plug-in, they went farther than ever before. They collected five EMT 140s from around the country and gathered them in their lab.
They tuned them up. They teched them out. They went to the chiropractor (that’s one and a half tons of plate reverb). Then they took their time listening and testing, zeroing in on a sound that they think captures the classic EMT 140 vibe. Warm, rich, spacious, and slightly dark, Little Plate packs the essence of plate reverb into one little plug-in that won't break your back.
