Valhalla DSP: Super Massive

A free reverb and delay plugin.

By

8 November 2023

ValhallaDSP believes in following its creative muse — or Valkyrie, as the case may be — and with a 20 year plugin building legacy it has been driven by an endless fascination for sound, a deep respect for the creative process, and a strong urge to provide users with simple but powerful tools.

Valhalla’s Supermassive has been designed from the ground up for massive delays and reverbs, so prepare yourself for luscious clouds of reverb, otherworldly delays, and swelling waves of feedback unlike any you’ve heard before.

18 Reverb/Delay Modes:

  • Gemini. Fast attack, shorter decay, high echo density
  • Hydra. Fast-ish attack, shorter decay, low to high echo density (depending on the Density control setting)
  • Centaurus. Medium attack, longer decay, medium to high echo density (depending on the Density control setting)
  • Sagittarius. Slow attack, longer decay, high echo density
  • Great Annihilator. Medium attack, very long decay, medium to high echo density (depending on the Density control setting)
  • Andromeda. Slowest attack, very long decay, very high echo density
  • Lyra. Fast attack, shorter decay, low echo density
  • Capricorn. Fast attack, shorter decay, medium echo density
  • Large Magellanic Cloud. Long reverb, long repeating echoes, long decay, medium attack
  • Triangulum. Long reverb, very long repeating echoes, long decay, slow attack
  • Cirrus Major. Low/medium echo density, strange repeating patterns, fast attack
  • Cirrus Minor. Low echo density, strange repeating patterns, fast attack, smaller than Cirrus Major
  • Cassiopeia. Initially low echo density that quickly builds to long and lush reverbs, mysterious repeating patterns, fast attack
  • Orion. This is the much bigger version of Cassiopeia. Low echo density that can build to enormous reverbs, fast attack, strange resonances and repeating patterns
  • Aquarius. a dedicated EchoVerb algorithm, with a strong audible echo/de;au that can morph into a lush reverb with higher Density settings
  • Pisces. the bigger sibling of Aquarius. EchoVerb, with even denser and lusher reverbs on tap than Aquarius
  • Scorpio. Fast attack, shorter decay, high echo density, cross-channel feedback, and filtering in the feedback loop for more realistic reverb decay
  • Libra. Medium attack, long decay, very high echo density, lush balanced modulation, and filtering in the feedback loop for more realistic reverb decay

All Valhalla plugins are self-documenting, so you can rollover the controls for the tooltip.
