Exponential Audio has introduced Nimbus, a new reverb effect plugin that takes the proven sound of Michael Carnes’ PhoenixVerb to the next level.

Exponential Audio Nimbus

NIMBUS begins a whole new generation of reverberation. It starts with the core of PhoenixVerb and adds powerful new forms of processing as well as workflow improvements that will make it easier than ever to take your mixes to a whole new level.

Nimbus introduces an expanded EQ section with a new Tail Suppression dynamics process, which helps lower the reverb level when the input signal is strong. Pre-delay and reverb delay can now be locked to tempo, and more early reflection pattern choices are included.

The plugin also has a new Warp section with an input compressor/expander, overdrive circuit and word-size reduction to create the sound of early digital reverbs.

Nimbus features

  • Better sounding.
  • The familiar core of PhoenixVerb, extended in new directions.
  • New warp section with compressor/expander and overdrive.
  • Pre-delay and reverb delay now adjustable by tempo.
  • New tail suppression circuit for more dynamic response.
  • Over 1200 presets.
  • Helpful tool-tips to guide new users.

Nimbus will be available for Windows and Mac in late September, priced at $199 USD. Exponential Audio plugin owners can expect a special upgrade offer, and there will also be a limited time introductory pricing after the product release. Note that VST, VST3 and AU formats are 64-bits only, while AAX is 32/64-bits.
