The Waves Ltd. True Verb is a software plug-in that emulates all sorts of reverbs.  It was a quick install and after starting to install it it only ended up taking about five minutes.  I didn't have any compatibility problems and the interface is easy enough to understand that it won't take too long to get accustomed to its features.  The typical functions are easy to find and the graphs show a great representation of the reverbs.  You have emulations of just about every type of reverb including hall, spring, and room.  The manual for this software is put together well and while it could be helpful, the plug-in is pretty self explanatory and isn't hard to operate without the manual.


SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I've never had any problems running the Waves Ltd. True Verb as it has always run pretty smoothly for me.  I am currently running the plug-in on a Mac Book Pro that has a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM.  I run the plug-in in Pro Tools LE 7.4 that runs off of a Digi 002R audio interface.  I have also run the plug-in on a Pro Tools HD system.  I've never had problems running this plug-in, but like I do with all reverbs, I use busing and auxiliary channels.  I place the plug-in on a stereo aux channel and send buses from the tracks to the aux channel that I want to have reverb on.  This saves processing power and will allow you to run more plug-ins at a time.  I've been using the Waves Ltd. True Verb for a few years and it has always run pretty smoothly for me, no matter what system I am running it on.



OVERALL OPINION

While the Waves Ltd. True Verb sounds pretty good, it sound quality doesn't really blow me away.  It is good for a few different types of reverbs and is probably best for its room reverb.  My major problem with this plug-in is that the sounds generally sound pretty digital.  They don't sound all that organic, but they do sound pretty good and are usable in most situations.  Waves is known for making good plug-ins and this will not disappoint, just know that this is a more digital sounding reverb than others out there.  The price doesn't really make up for the mediocre sound quality and for this reason I would probably look elsewhere.  However, it is great having the graphs and all of the different parameters that this offers and it is a pretty versatile plug-in.  All in all, I would check this plug-in out but I would also recommend checking out Trillium Labs Space Reveb as I think it is a superior plug-in.
