FAS-FX Reverb - Guitar Interactive Review by Tom Quayle

It's a fantastic sounding reverb. They've actually produced a plugin that gives more horsepower than the reverb within the Axe-Fx, which is a really fantastic unit renouned for its quality... [FAS-FX Reverb] is an amazing sounding plugin with a very low CPU load. One of the most pristine sounding reverbs I've ever heard... it's just so beautiful sounding. I'm hugely impressed with this plugin -- I'm certainly going to be using it on my productions. Very impressive indeed"

This video accompanies a full review of FAS-FX Reverb in iGuitar Magazine.

Fractal Audio FAS-FX Reverb Demo - Mark Day

FAS-FX Reverb is a fantastic plugin. I got so accustomed to the reverbs in my Axe-Fx II that when I was using the plugins in my DAW I actually felt like something was missing. It’s not just the great sound that makes it my go-to reverb, but it’s a breeze to use. 


Using the Fractal Audio FAS-FX Reverb in a Mix - Inside the Studio with Greg Wurth

Greg Wurth is a Grammy Nominated, Gold & Platinum award winning producer/engineer. Here are some highlights from his review of FAS-FX Reverb. "Amazing presets... It's always great when you can get a plugin that can give you a really great spring reverb sound, and this definitely captures that... What I think is great is different modes. Basic mode... and if you're adventurous... expert mode which is great. Some people want 2 or 3 knobs and [others] want to get in and tweak and this definitely caters to that. It's a fantastic plugin. I think it sounds great and I highly recommend it!"

Nicolas Tomaro SoundCloud Demo

Here's my full band demo of FAS-FX Reverb, minus vocals, to give you an idea of what this amazing tool can do. No other effects except for the FAS-FX Reverb. It is seriously a great versatile plugin. I mainly stuck with the presets in this one and they are much louder than I would use in a mix. This way you can hear what this plugin is all about. This is just the tip of the iceberg, but you get the idea. I had 10 instances of the plugin, and Cubase was still going strong. Good performance.

Here's a list of the presets used (also tagged on the track)
0:00 Large Chamber (This was left through most of the song)
0:00 Cavern on Snare
0:33 Cavern Off
0:46 Gymnasium
0:59 Back to Large Chamber as an overall reverb
2:06 Rec Studio C
2:35 Cloud Formation
2:52 Spring Delay
3:10 Asylum Hall on Solo Guitar
3:46 Studio Acoustic Guitar (Bus)
4:00 Guitar Space on Lead Guitar
