At Superbooth 2018, U-he presented two new plugins in addition to the first Eurorack module. One of them was Twangström, a new high-quality spring reverb plugin for PC & Mac. Good news: it’s now available. As you expect from U-he, this new plugin is not a simple emulation of a spring reverb but a step forward what is possible in software.
It features shakeable springs for an authentic sound, three different reverberation tanks, a multimode filter as well as modulation options. With the envelope generator and LFO, it’s possible to create very crazy reverb effected sounds that goes behind classic spring reverbs. Again a fantastic development from U-he team!
A flexible spring reverb box-of-tricks. If you’re familiar with Bazille, you might already have come across its built-in spring unit. We took that one, then modelled two more reverb tanks, paired it with drive section, filter stage, envelope, and mod matrix. It emulates a hand-picked selection of the most popular units you will find in classic guitar and instrument amplifiers, recreating the odd character of real springs.
As a faithful emulation of a mechanical device, Twangström needs to be handled well. Many of the technical parameters are user-adjustable in real time, and these can be controlled via MIDI or using the internal LFO and envelope generator. With its multimode resonant filter, Twangström is a unique and powerful tool which can deliver highly unusual, evolving textures… especially when the signal is tossed around using the modulation matrix!
