Dim D Version 1.0
Transcending Music (Gearslutz): Sometimes in the traditional algo plugin land, there are attempts at recreating a piece of hardware. I want to say though, sometimes it isn't about 100% reproduction but at least mimicking the overall aspects of an analog counterpart. And having said that, ERS not only got damn close but again more importantly they have created a plugin that behaves more like analog gear in the sense of adding to the signal without taking something away which unfortunately isn't always the case with plugins: they add a certain something that takes away from the signal.

I dare to say that amongst other algorithmic plugins, the ERS one is by far the best one yet. And I'm a big UAD fan and of course user as well. But this gem, man it shines. What I found mostly with other Dim style plugins is that they take away punch and low end content from the signal and create a diffuse sound. Throughout this development ERS went through several gestations and variations of the plugin until they achieved this organic behavior of keeping punch relatively intact while adding the beautiful shimmering chorus effect. The typical diffusion of other attempted plugins while trying to recreate this effect was also a challenge with the ERS version at first. They ultimately nailed the solidity without artificially exaggerating the stereo image but subtly enhancing it. While most plugin versions of this effect created a distant and flattening effect, the ERS version remained more true to the fidelity.


Solar (Gearslutz): And indeed, won't say it enough, it is truly by far the BEST Chorus Effect i've yet to hear and everytime I load it up, my ears get amazed in whatever instrument you trough this baby on. To me this is now history, it's now A CLASSIC must have :)


DSK (Gearslutz): You know what really nice thing I found out while playing with this plugin apart from the very nice stereo widening? The fact that things sit really well into the mix and it retains full character of the original while adding good things...


ERS 250 Version 1.0


Interface review (139) in dutch: "When you need an easy to use reverb with warm and professional sound, this is a good solution".


ERS 250 Version 2.0


64 bit VST Review by Perry
After testing the 64 bit version with a 64 bit host for over 48 hours
I can say that it works fantastic and sounds wonderful!
Just like the old days. What a fantastic sounding Reverb even better with the 64 bit version!
Excellent work!!! (Posted on 11/3/11)


George Necola (Gearslutz): without going into much details, this reverb kicks dramatically ass. It's going to be on every mix together with my CSR-reverbs.

David Sanchez (Mercado Negro): I liked its sound, very much. I like its sound because it is pristine and clear, not metallic and hollowed . I also liked its simplicity, very user-friendly and a very well thought layout :)


Excellent Emulation!!!!!!!!!!! Review by PerrySounds like all of the 250 R2D2's I used over the years
without the heat and the PSU failures. I use the ERS 250 on vocals and Drums in a lot of mixes I just love the sound of the 250'soh wait I mean the Plugin. Excellent Job!!!!!!! (Posted on 11/1/11)


Sounddesigner (Gearslutz): I took the update for a test drive and i must say, the new algorithms sound great. Seems to give more of a sense of space then before. This is just what the doctor ordered! Clean and natural but still with personality. I have the Sonar version and so far it seems to be working properly. Great job! This reverb was already a winner and the update just made it VERY impressive. From all the reverbs i've tried this ERS 250 is my favorite algorithmic reverb on the Native platform.


Bmanic (KVR): ERS250 from Emptyroom systems is extremely good. It is the glue reverb. Whatever source you put it on the thing just melts everything together. Extremely nice and highly recommended.
