 how to buy


Whilst TEV's aim is not to be ultra-realistic - it is designed to be just that little bit different : Two independent stereo echo and reverb units with enhancer and filtering to create a wide variety of spaces ranging from up-close and personal to large, larger, huge ... out there - beyond - other.

As seen in MusicTech Magazine issue 84

and Computer Music Magazine issue 161 - out now

Made for KVR's Developer Challenge 2009, Twin Engined Verb was awarded 4th place by public vote - only 4 votes behind the mighty de la Mancha's FMMF Synth - Bootsie's Ferric TDS and Christian Borss' Hybrid Reverb II came first and second respectively. Big thanks to everyone who's downloaded and voted for TEV, and a special thanks to those brave enough to step foward with bug reports - you know who you are ;)

Some of the nice things KVR users said about TEV :
"this one rocks,great job"
"very cool plugin, sounds awesome"
"it have it's own sound as well as sounding amazing"
"both subtle and wild effects - greatly appreciate it"
"TEV rocks. There are some very elegant touches on that GUI that make TEV a real joy to use."

So, Ladies and Gentlemen, for the next few weeks, TEV will still be available for download from KVR using the link below (after that I'll host it here - don't worry) - please download, use, and delight in the pleasures of Twin Engined Verb : Character Reverb.

Echos and Rooms : TEV splits the input into low and high bands and uses a different echo and room effect for each band. The outputs of this are cross-mixed and fed into the enhancer section which uses mid / side processing : dynamics, delay, distortion and noise - shaping the signal before a set of stereo balance controls configure the wet and dry signals ready for the output mix :

Artificial space : From small, slappy bright spaces and long drawn-out echo-ing chasms. Damped delays and distorted noisy fsu effects. Passable rooms and implausible environments - there's plenty of scope for creating unique spaces. TEV's distortion has controls for level and threshhold with an additional boost button, and when used with noise, the impulse trigger button can be used to make all manner of explosion effects - handle with care ... If all that seems a bit much, there's 192 presets and a set of randomise buttons - the ultimate in lazy patch-design ... its probably a good idea to the read the manual tho :o)
