2C-Audio Aether

Finding a good reverb plugin can be very tough. They range in prices from free to a £2500, and in quality from horrifying to great. Aether is at the lower end of the spectrum in terms of price, costing a good £350. You might think this is still a lot for an unknown developer with yet another reverb plugin, but once you listen to it you'll realise you're getting awesome value for your money.

Aether calls itself a self-randomizing algorithmic reverb plugin. Now, I don't now exactly what that means, but what I do know is that dragging Aether onto a track will drown that track in spaciousness. Put on a pair of headphones, and have a listen:
Aether demos

Unfortunately, there is a downside to all of this. Aether is ridiculously hard to program, with a huge array of controls that are barely explained. This is however compensated by a large amount of presets, all ready to be used out-of-the-box, and basically provideing you with everything you need.
A demo version (for both Windows and Mac) of Aether is downloadable from the 2C-Audio website here:

  1. I might check out that demo thingy, thanks man

  2. Nothing tops the S6000! If you have $25,000, that is...;)

  3. Hey, thanks for the demo. I'll take a look at it, though I am not rich enough to buy them goodies.
