The Legendary Intimate Reverb of the 60s—Now in Your Studio

The unmistakable sonic signature of Abbey Road Studios’ echo chambers was born in the 1950s. This plugin, designed in close collaboration with Abbey Road, models not just three chambers—but also the tape delays, filters, speakers, mics, and signal path that were a crucial part of this sound.

If you get goosebumps when you hear your vocals through these reverbs, maybe it’s because you’re hearing the same reverb effect that graced John Lennon’s voice on “A Day in the Life.”

The Most Natural-Sounding Reverb

  • Historically Accurate Reverb Sound

    Abbey Road’s original reverb sound wasn’t just about the gorgeously lush chamber itself, but also the warm analog signal chain through which the natural chamber signal passed. For the first time anywhere, all these elements are modeled with historically accurate precision.

    Features: Glue Mixes without “Squashing”
  • Add Life and Space to Tracks

    For vocals, Abbey Road Chambers adds a rich, snappy tone. For synths, it breathes life and character. Drums hit with power. Electric guitars evoke a full, focused sound. History aside, this plugin delivers a stunning chamber reverb sound. The Dry/Web Mix control allows you to blend in the reverb to taste.

  • Choose Your Chamber: 3 Distinct Choices

    Choose the natural reverb sounds of three famous chambers: Abbey Road’s original Studio Two, the Studios’ Mirror Room and, as a bonus, the Stone Room from London’s Olympic Studios—each with its own distinct natural reverb character.

    Features: Fast and Efficient Operation
  • Discover the One-of-a-Kind S.T.E.E.D Effect

    Abbey Road’s engineers often sent the chamber’s signal to a feedback loop running from the studio’s console, via tape delay, via RS106 and RS127 filters, to the chamber and back. This unique “S.T.E.E.D.” (Send. Tape. Echo. Echo. Delay.) effect is impossible to create in any other way. Abbey Road Chambers packs it into easy-to-use controls, which you can use with the chamber reverb or separately.

    Features: From Vocals to “The Ringo Drum Sound”
  • Not Only Reverb: An Entire Effects Chain

    Audio was rarely run directly into the reverb. Instead, EMI’s RS106 and 127 high-pass, low-pass, and midrange EQs tailored the sound being reverberated. Abbey Road Chambers meticulously models these specialty Abbey Road EQs.

    Features: Multiple Modes Fit Different Material
  • Customize Your Mics and Speakers

    Great chamber reverb sounds are also about mic choice and placement. Customize your setup—from original valve Neumann KM53 microphones and lo-fi Altec 605 speaker, used on almost every pop recording made at Abbey Road in the ‘60s, to modern mic and full range speaker choices.

    Features: Precision Modeled Transformers
