Universal Audio EMT 250

Universal Audio releases the EMT 250, a classic reverb powered plug-in for the UAD-2 platform.

Introduced in 1976, the EMT 250’s distinctive clear and open reverb sound has appeared on countless records, including Prince & The Revolution’s Purple Rain, Elvis Costello’s Spike, and modern classics like The Red Hot Chili Pepper’s Stadium Arcadium. Re-engineered by Universal Audio alongside EMT 250 creator Dr. Barry Blesser — and fully endorsed by EMT Studiotechnik GmbH — the EMT 250 Powered Plug-In goes beyond emulation by using the very same algorithm found in these extremely rare units.
