PA1 is a new reverb plugin for macOS based on physical modelling that recreates the famous sound of old and new plate reverbs in a dynamic way!

Physical modelling meets reverb?  It’s rare but here is it. The new PA1 reverb by Physical Audio is a physical modelling reverb that aims to create the class sound of plat reverbs from the past and today. In v2, there is a better sound engine implemented,  new EQ’s, a better interface and more. Unfortunately, only available for Mac at this point.


PA1 has individual T60 decay times over 8 different frequency bands. This allows you to adjust the decay of specific elements of a track, for example adding extra reverb just to the hi-hats of a drum beat. Combined with the high and low shelving EQ, you have complete control of the frequency content of your sound.

As this is a physical model we can adjust the size, tension and material of the plate itself. The area can be set between 1 and 6m2, and the variable aspect ratio changes the plate from a square to a thin rectangle. There are 5 different materials, including the standard steel plate, gold, and titanium. These controls allow you to create a plate that is specifically tuned to your source material.
