Goodhertz has released version 3.4.1 of its plugins. The update introduces the new Megaverb, an “incredibly good bad reverb” plugin that emulates the sound of 80s reverb units.

Meet Megaverb — an incredibly good, “bad” digital reverb plugin. On the one hand, it is a recreation that captures that iconic sound of the 1980’s. On the other, it is a modern piece of precision engineering that pushes that sound further, opening up your music to a world of sounds that those early digital reverbs could not imagine or implement.

So whether you’re after that classic gated snare, or that dissolving guitar, or that menacing synth, Megaverb’s presets have you covered.

We’ve also made it easy to use. Unlike the arcane controls of many 1980’s reverb units, Megaverb has a simple, expressive interface that gets out of your way so you can quickly dial in the sound you’re looking for. And (as always with Goodhertz plugins), Megaverb’s controls can handle anything you throw at them. Automate a reverb throw with the Wet Gain slider, create an infinite reverb loop by ramping the Verb Decay, or sweep the filters in realtime. Anything you can think of, Megaverb can handle seamlessly — no clicks, no pops, just the sound of your music, modified.

Need more precise control when searching for your perfect gated reverb sound? Tweak the detection mode or invert the classic 80’s gated reverb into a never-before-heard ducked reverb in the advanced Gate + section.

The Megaverb plugin costs $95 USD. It is available for Windows and Mac in VST/VST3, AU and AAX plugin formats.

Other changes in the 3.4.1 update:

  • Improved EQ resolution in Tone Control, Tiltshift, & Midside.
  • Added keyboard shortcut for A/B.
  • Added option to lock a control when switching presets.
  • Fixed UI scaling issues in FL Studio & Studio One.
  • Beta language support for Arabic in some plugins.
