Perfect Plate

How does a supernatural plate sound?

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.

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

1: How quickly the plate vibrates
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.
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

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 recognisability, 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”.

What use-case fits you best?
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.
“That's a masterpiece right there!“
“What an impressive Plate, I fell in love with the sound quality right away. Also, I love the addition of the resonance and the ducker dials in a reverb! The built-in EQ is also amazing and super practical!”
