In this video review Pro Tools Expert team member Dan Cooper takes a close look at Tverb by Eventide. Tverb is a reverb plug-in that recreates the vocal production technique used by Tony Visconti when Tony recorded David Bowie's lead vocal for Heroes. Watch the video to hear the effect in a cover recording of Heroes and to find out why Dan awarded Tverb with a Pro Tools Expert Editors Choice Award.
Tverb is available at an introductory price of $149 (regular $249) until the 31st May 2016. Tverb is also available through the Eventide Ensemble Subscription.
