4. Baby Audio Crystalline

This algorithmic reverb gives you full control over shaping the reverb reflections, through many built-in features. Its interface is divided into 6 sections: reflections, start/end, clean-up, depth, output, and shape. Shape the reverb’s reflections, choose your favorite start and decay times, clean up the reverb, choose the depth of the reverb, and shape the tone, smoothness, and transients.



5. Robotic Bean Portatron

Portatron is a 4-track tape recorder offering you all of the classic features from the original piece of gear. Layer up to 4 different samples, add classic tape sounds to it (wobble, noise, dropouts, and start/stop lag), choose your favorite tape speed (0-200%), shape the sample through the Tape Editor (resize, move, reverse, or repeat), and finish the sounds off with built-in reverb, delay, drive, EQ, level, and panning.
