The De-Verb MicroPlug employs the same processing technique as the original Transient Designer to reduce the ambience or reverb in your audio. SPL’s Differential Envelope Technology has revolutionized dynamics processing through a level-independent methodology.

This radically different approach eliminates the need for a threshold setting, while other parameters are set automatically as they follow the characteristics of the input signal. This leaves only one control required to professionally reshape the sustain characteristics of a sound.

Working with the De-Verb is disarmingly simple: All reverb events can be reduced – regardless of their signal level. This translates to endless possibilities for studio and live applications! Reverb curves of any sound event can be reduced very simply. The De-Verb also offers an output gain control that allows compensation for level changes after processing the signal. This ensures a simple and safe adjustment of levels while avoiding internal clipping.

Shorten the sustain period of a snare in a very musical way. Reduce tom tom ring without physically damping them. Adjust the apparent “distance” of the microphone by simply varying the Reverb Reduction value.

A perfect alternative to noise gates! With the De-Verb MicroPlug, the sustain period is shortened more musically compared to fixed release times – within seconds a drum set is significantly freed from unwanted room info.

The Analog Code
During listening tests of this technology, a hardware developer remarked that SPL had “cracked the Analog Code!” and in the process, coined the name of SPL’s software product line.

SPL hardware products can be found in the world’s top recording and mastering facilities, and have become a staple for audio professionals ranging from home studio owners to top mastering engineers. With the growth of computer based audio systems, the need for the SPL sound in plugin form has also grown. With Analog Code plugins, that coveted SPL sound is now available right inside your DAW.

    Life Saver

    Haven't had a chance to use for musical applications, but this is great for damage control when you're stuck working in a less than ideal recording environment.

    by Mr. Chiboiborn
    This plugin is very useful if there is any background noise bleeding into the recording, if not i still use it to tighten up the vocal or take the reverb out of snare, kick or any element that has… Read More
