Two New Reverb Modes For Supermassive By Valhalla

Valhalla are celebrating Supermassive’s 2nd birthday with an update to the said plugin which introduces 2 new reverb modes to what is already a very cool and high useable FREE reverb.

Valhalla Supermassive has been designed from the ground up for MASSIVE delays and reverbs. Get ready for luscious clouds of reverb, otherworldly delays, and swelling waves of feedback unlike any you’ve heard before.

Supermassive has 16 out-of-this-world reverb/delay modes:

  • Gemini: Fast attack, shorter decay, high echo density.
  • Hydra: Fast-ish attack, shorter decay, low to high echo density (depending on the DENSITY control setting)
  • Centaurus: Medium attack, longer decay, medium to high echo density (depending on the DENSITY control setting)
  • Sagittarius: Slow attack, longer decay, high echo density
  • Great Annihilator: Medium attack, very long decay, medium to high echo density (depending on the DENSITY control setting)
  • Andromeda: Slowest attack, very long decay, very high echo density
  • Lyra: Fast attack, shorter decay, low echo density
  • Capricorn: Fast attack, shorter decay, medium echo density
  • Large Magellanic Cloud: Long reverb, LOOOONG repeating echoes, long decay, medium attack
  • Triangulum: Long reverb, VERY LONG repeating echoes, long decay, slow attack
  • Cirrus Major: Low/medium echo density, strange repeating patterns, fast attack
  • Cirrus Minor: Low echo density, strange repeating patterns, fast attack, smaller than Cirrus Major
  • Cassiopeia: Initially low echo density that quickly builds to long and lush reverbs, mysterious repeating patterns, fast attack
  • Orion: the much bigger version of Cassiopeia. Low echo density that can build to enormous reverbs, fast attack, strange resonances and repeating patterns.

What’s new in version 2:

Aquarius and Pisces are both modified feedback delay networks in a topology I’m calling “EchoVerb.” These algorithms have a strong audible echo, which directly corresponds to the displayed Delay time. By modifying WARP, FEEDBACK, and DENSITY, Aquarius and Pisces can be used for standard delays, delays with reverb mixed in, reverb with a strong pre-delay, or weird and wild echo sounds.

Aquarius Mode

The Aquarius mode is similar to the earlier Capricorn mode, in that it has 8 delays in the feedback delay network. The main change is that Aquarius only has two delays in the output signal: one for the left channel, one for the right channel. The left and right output delay lengths are the same, regardless of the WARP setting. This results in a very audible echo/delay in the signal, especially with low settings of DENSITY. As the DENSITY control is turned up, the other delays in the feedback delay network have more of their outputs sent into the global feedback path, which results in a more reverberant sound – or in more comb filtering with low settings of WARP. When WARP is at 0% and the modulation DEPTH is at 0%, turning up DENSITY will result in weird cancellations in the echo signal, that can create interesting polyrhythms and panning.

Pisces Mode

The Pisces mode is essentially a denser version of the Aquarius mode, and can be viewed as a modified Gemini mode with only two output delays (one for the left channel, one for the right). As the DENSITY control is turned up, the outputs of the other delays in the feedback delay network are mixed into the global feedback path. Since there are more delays in the Pisces mode, the reverb will build up density and lushness more quickly than the Aquarius mode.

Supermassive is available to PC and Mac users (VST2, VST3, AU and AAX).
