IK Multimedia Sunset Sound Studio Reverb Review

Home recording studio engineers usually have to deal with poor sounding acoustics. So, they close mic their sources and then add artificial reverb during mixing.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a variety of authentic sounding live rooms and echo chambers to use on your audio? Now you can and at a relatively affordable price with IK Multimedia’s Sunset Sound Reverb plugin.

Do the names Led Zepplein, The Doors, Prince, Janis Joplin, The Rolling Stones, Whitney Houston or Alanis Morissette sound familiar? These are just some of the famous people that have recorded at Sunset Sound. Now, you don’t have to book the studio or fly to Los Angeles, CA to get many of the sounds this classic studio has given to countless musical artists.

I really liked the variety of sounds that I was able to easily achieve with this plugin. The limited controls are a positive because it’s difficult to get something I didn’t like. The isolation booths were something unique and the fact that they emulated the microphone preamps/recording consoles is a big deal. IK really thought this one though!
