While not necessarily an AU reverb, Space Designer gets my vote. If I had more CPU power I'd use it on every track, it can even make some unnervingly eerie sounds as well.

Space Designer is a great reverb, it can be used in so many situations.
It also sound fantastic! I put it up there because we are logic users here.
and pretty much have access to it.

I also had recently tested out UADs plate140 reverb. I used it for a band I had in the studio on main vocal and snare. I thought to myself "great another reverb to choose from" and was not planning on buying it after the trial was over. A few weeks later after the demo had expired I opened up the mixes and dropped in Powercore's classic verb. It just wasn't the same, at all. SO..... I bought the plate140 and put it back in and things were right.
I have to say that this reverb I will be putting on most vocals and snares for sure. I use space designer on a buss and send gtrs, overheads and other instruments to halls/rooms/and other type spaces on the Space Designer.

The powercore's classic verb is nice too... its very warm, but a bit dull.


My vote is for
Space Designer & UAD's Plate140
Must haves in my opinion

I too have to give props to Space Designer...as soon as I get a good bank of X serves I'll definetly be using it more..(it is a CPU glutton)..thank God for DAP...I also like the Oxford Bundle...running in Powercore Firewire...Altiverb is cool...but with the other logic native plugins..running on DAP..I am thinking on moving to the outboard Kurzweil KSP8
(I know that the question was favorite AU Plug Ins)...I just mentioned the kurzweil to emphasis that with DAP and DSP going I think I'm pretty set on plug in effects....and outboard stuff gives you another flavor....... not to down any other...like Waves..UAD...etc....quality is pretty close on a lot of these if you know how to utilize them...

It must be the altiverb with the westlake impulses...it makes the most out of programmed drums...kinda like a overhead mic... 8)
But then again i mostley like very short verbs on stuff. rarley use long ones, maybe on a ballad but not too long..around 1.5s is almost too much

I recently did a shoutout with the following reverbs using dry classical recording.

Reverb One (TDM)
Space Designer
Altiverb
Renaissance Reverb
lexicon PCM 80

Without a doubt the winner was Altiverb. It killed space deisinger so hard I went and shelled out the $$ to finish the project with it. The biggest thing Altiverb had over all the others was it's very natural decay and 3 dimensional sound. Space designer sounded very flat and 2 dimensional and every setting I tried had very unnatural sounding decay. This could just be a fault of the convolutions used, but I tried so many and they all had the same issues.

The closest second place to altiverb was the hardware Lexicon PCM80.

cheers!
