ValhallaDSP upgrades its epic free reverb, delay plugin Supermassive in version 1.5 with two new exotic reverb modes made to explore.
In May 2020, Sean Costello from ValhallaDSP gave away the Valhalla Supermassive plugin for free. A superlative reverb/delay plugin for macOS and Windows. At the time when many professional musicians were at home, without gigs, he gave them a new tool to work with. A really big gesture. And he didn’t leave it at that.
In September of the same year, more algorithms were added, also a free update. One year after the release, Supermassive is an indispensable part of any plugin arsenal. Today, the super big journey continues with another update.
Valhalla Supermassive 1.5.0
Valhalla Supermassive is a free plugin. One reason it is so loved. For me, there is another. I am fascinated by the algorithms that Sean Costello (ValhallaDSP) wrote for this. They are all very unique, innovative, experimental, or simply different. Reverbs and delays that are not yet known. Algorithms that invite you to experiment.
The new ValhallaSupermassive 1.5.0 update introduces two new beautiful, weird reverb modes based on advanced extensions of Michael Gerzon’s feedback delay network theory. No bread and butter reverbs but the developer promise weird, tricky algos. Meet Cassiopeia and Orion, two non-conventional reverbs.
Cassiopeia is a reverb algorithm with a smaller characteristic that generates shorter decay and echo patterns while Orion is the big brother.
It is twice as big as Cassiopeia and outputs much longer reverbs and echoes due to some laws of reverb physics that are a mystery even to me, says Sean Costello. The algorithm is capable of creating a wide range of unique reverbs. For example, it can produce a mysterious echo with a noticeable pulse on every 8th repeat or epic modulated reverbs.
New Info Section
Further, they expanded the info section in the upper right corner of the user interface. This allows you to tell at a glance what version number you are running, the plugin format (VST/VST3/AAX/AU), and whether you are running it on an Intel or ARM Mac (the Windows version just assumes Intel/AMD).
Two beautiful new reverb algorithms that invite every musician to experiment and explore with them. I’m really looking forward to testing these new algorithms when I have more time. VDSP doesn’t usually do a Black Friday sale. At $ 50 per plugin, they’re always on sale. No matter what time of year. With this update, he indirectly made a BF deal to every musician. Yes without spending any money. Big thanks.
ValhallaDSP Supermassive is available now as a free download. It runs as a VST, VST3, AU, AAX on macOS (Intel/M1) and Windows.
