Hello VSL team!


I'm under the impression that the Pro version is a bit of a different plugin from the "old" Hybrid Reverb (beyond  added surround functionalities and scalable GUI). Is this correct?


I find the algorithmic reverb of the Pro version much cleaner (actually probably one of the cleanest reverb plugins I ever heard), but also less "rich" sounding. Even with the output level full on, it never gets nearly as dominant or lush as the reverb tail of the old plugin (even setting the old one to -6 or -9dB). Why is that? Another factor seems to be the fact that the old plugin has a density parameter, which the Pro version doesn't.


I'm also not quite sure how to use "Shape" and "PD Shape" in the Pro version and what precisely to be aiming for with these controls. The documentation is a bit brief and cryptic about this - some more practical information would be greatly appreciated.


Regarding the IRs: are those from the Pro version not the same ones that were included in the old version?


Some more info regarding the included IRs and how they interact with the material would be great. Is there additional documentation on the IRs available? There's quite a lot of them and experimenting back and forth can get quite time consuming when you're trying to get something done.


Thanks in advance!

Hi Jimmy,

FYI: I already asked Martin Saleteg, the guy behind Vienna Suite Pro, to chime in with first-hand information.

Thanks for your patience!
