How does a supernatural plate sound?
track: R. Stegeman vocals: Laura Lloreta ARR. & Production: nrec video: Diego Delgado

Go supernatural with the Perfect Plate

TXVerb™ powered technology
The goal of the denise Perfect Plate reverb is to easily manipulate your tracks in supernatural ways with supernatural sound quality. The Perfect Plate XL offers refined control over the key aspects that determine a plate’s sound, resulting in new possibilities to shape and combine plate reverb styles: make drums sound huge, like played in a oil tanker, give vocals a classic dreamy vintage reverb or make them sound like a resonating synth drone that rotates in the stereo field. We do this by utilizing our TXVerb™ technology known from the Perfect Room, praised by many engineers as the best natural reverb out there. To go even further beyond the realms of traditional reverb, we added tailor-made effects to work seamlessly with our core TXVerb™ technology. We challenge you to go supernatural with the resonator, drive, rotator & detune - and don’t forget about the internal ducker! Download an unlimited trial of the plugin at the end of this page.

“Speechless“
“denise has made my job writing a review on Perfect Plate very difficult because I'm speechless on how incredible this reverb sounds. Seriously congrats on this one. Wow.”
Bryan author at Everything Recording

The denise Perfect Plate gives you control over 5 aspects to shape your plate sound

1: How quickly the plate vibrates
2: How long the plate vibrates
3: How long it takes for the plate to react to the input signal
4: How much space the plate takes
5 FX: How crazy the plate sounds
Immerse your tracks in a lush and dense reverb with long dampening settings or create metallic and snappy reflections using small values and changing the steepness of the curve.

A room vs plate reverb

The night and day difference between a room and a plate reverb.
Both are called reverbs, but don’t be fooled. If a room reverb is like water, a plate is like fire. While a room reverb enhances the natural character of a sound - imagine a trumpet being played in a high end vintage studio - a plate reverb is literally sound passing through metal, which sounds surprisingly beautiful and full of character. It will allow you to enhance and change the trumpet’s timbre and character in space and time. Or, with the denise Perfect Plate XL, the ability to go supernatural: played in reverse, in a stream locomotive rotating in the air while slamming the locomotive with a sledge hammer.

Famous examples of natural reverbs are the drums on Steve Albini’s legendary mix of Nirvana’s “In Utero” or on The Jesus Lizard’s “Goat”. Listen to how they recreate a room sound or enhance the existing ambience. Plate reverbs tend to become iconic because of their recognizability, for example the vocals on Jefferson Airplane’s “White Rabbit” (pay attention to how the singer Grace Slick sounds like her voice comes from a dream), the entirety of “Dark Side Of The Moon” by Pink Floyd (the whole unearthly sound is made by only using an EMT Plate) or the lush vocal reverb on Sohn’s “Rennen”.

The classic version is great for users who simply require a lush and great sounding plate.

The XL version extends the sound design capabilities by adding an EQ graph, control of the damping slope and creative effects (Reso, Drive & Rotate) specifically tailored for this reverb.

SHOW LESS

MAIN PANEL: INPUT AND OUTPUT (-48dB to 48dB): Input and output gain that let you boost or attenuate the signal going in and going out, giving you more control over the signal. MIX (0% to 100%): Smoothly mixes in the wet reverb signal giving you control over the overall intensity of the effect. HPF AND LPF (20Hz to 20kHz): A high pass and low pass filter to apply additional filtering to the generated noise. DELAY (0ms to 1000ms) Adds pre-delay to the wet reverb signal, to preserve clarity and transients. TAIL (0ms to 10000ms) Controls the length of the reverb tail. WIDTH (0% to 100%) Lets you adjust the stereo width of the wet reverb signal. SLOPE (12db/oct / 24db/oct / 36db/oct / 48db/oct): Lets you choose between different dampening filter slopes. SPEED (SLOW XL / SLOW / MEDIUM / FAST / FAST XL): Lets you choose between different dampening filter speeds. COLOR (NATURAL / BRIGHT / DARK) Lets you choose between the overall color of the plate. FLIP (ON / OFF): Reverses the reverb tail. SPLIT (ON / OFF): Creates a stereo reverb from a mono source. EQ GRAPH (6 NODES) Lets you equalise the plate reverb. FX PANEL 1: RESO (0% to 100%) Smoothly mixes in the rest effect. FREQ 1 / 2 / 3 (20Hz to 20kHz) Lets you set the resonance frequencies. RES 1 / 2 / 3 (0% to 100%) Lets you set the intensity of the resonance frequencies. GAIN 1 / 2 / 3 (-48dB to 0dB) Lets you lower the volume of the resonance frequencies. FX PANEL 2: DRIVE (0% to 100%) Smoothly mixes in the drive effect. TAPE / WARP / BUZZ / BITE (0% to 100%) Lets you mix in different distortion types CHAIN (PRE / POST) Lets you position the drive pre or post reverb in the internal effects chain MAKEUP (-24db to 24db) Lets you apply makeup gain to compensate for the drive effect. FX PANEL 3: ROTATE (0% to 100%) Smoothly mixes in the rotate effect. VIBRATO / TREMELO / FILTER / PAN (0% to 100%) Lets you mix in four different host-synced modulation effects. SHAPE (SINE / SINE INV / SAW / SAW INV / SQR / SQR INV / TRI / TRI INV) Lets you choose the lfo shape used for the host-synced modulation. TIME (1/32 / 1/16 / 1/8 / 1/4 /1/2 / 1 / 2 / 4 / 8 / 16 / 32) Lets you choose the lfo time used for the host-synced modulation. FEEL (STR8 / TRIP / DOT) Lets you choose the lfo feel used for the host-synced modulation. OFFSET (0% to 100%) Lets you offset the lfo shape used for the host-synced modulation. SMOOTH (0% to 100%) Lets you smooth out the edges of the lfo shape used for the host-synced modulation. FX PANEL 4: DETUNE (0% to 100%) Smoothly mixes in the detune effect. WOW (0% to 100%) Lets you slowly detune the wet reverb signal in a pseudo-random manner. SHAKE (0% to 100%) Lets you quickly detune the wet reverb signal in a pseudo-random manner. SPEED (0% to 100%): Lets you control the speed of the wow and shake features. FX PANEL 5: DUCKER (0% to 100%): Smoothly mixes in the ducker effect. THRESHOLD (-48dB to 0db): Sets the threshold above where the ducking kicks in. RATIO (1 to 10): Sets the compression ratio used by the ducker. ATTACK (0ms to 1000ms): The attack feature fades in the gain reduction generated by the ducker. HOLD (0ms to 100ms): The hold feature stabilises the gain reduction generated by the ducker. RELEASE (0ms to 5000ms): The release feature fades out the gain reduction generated by the ducker. LATENCY: To utilise the TXVerb technology the Perfect Plate has 2048 samples latency. The plug-in reports this latency to the DAW, so the DAW can compensate for it if you enable the DAW's 'delay compensation' functionality. This means that in any professional DAW, you don not have to worry about latency at all during the mixing mastering stage of your productions. However, in general DAW delay compensation does not work when recording. This means that the Perfect Room reverb plugin will have some latency during the recording stage, just like any other plugin that reports latency to the DAW.
