OrilRiver is a free algorithmic stereo reverb that can rival the quality of commercial reverbs. With this plugin it is possible to simulate the reverberation of a small room and great hall. OrilRiver has an intuitive interface thanks to which the user can quickly adjust the desired reverb sound.
Brillant algorithms - hope developer can make some money by selling them to companies. Best free verb I know. The GUI ist straight forward, nothing sophisticated but everything you need - from left to right - is there. From the outside it looks like a good reverb plugin should look. Even in different flavours. And the inside - wow. Sounds naturally, not too cold not "too analog" - it could be a reference sound, suitable for most home studios. Especially bread and butter rooms (don't ask what this means - I don't know either) for drums and vocals you can realize in a very convincing way with this little freebie genie. It's the Lionel Messi amongst the reverbs - for every tight situation there seems a stroke of genious to resolve it.
This reverb has a great sound and versatile possibilities to alter the sound. At the same time it has a low CPU usage - even compare to other products from the commercial domain I have here. Kudos to the dev for making this one free. Thanks.
This is an absolutely fabulous reverb effect plug-in, pure and simple. We should get down on our knees and thank Denis Tihanov every single day for having the good grace to make it free for all of us.
The best free reverb VST. If you're looking for something to stick on your reverb send to glue the entire track together, this is it. Millisecond indicators are very helpful for syncing it to the track's BPM.
XP professional sp3, AMD athlon 64 x2 dual core processor 5000+, Cubase SX. As I said, it might very well be a problem with my set-up, so please don't go crazy trying to figure out what the problem is, unless others have the same problem :) Thanks :)
Hi Denis thanks for this amazing reverb but v.2 doesn't work right .for me..win8 x64 daw cubase 5 - show small box 'no audio', daw MULAB - works sometimes for a while but then crash ...please make it more stable, its such a pleasure to with it. tHANKS :)
Hi Denis. Big fan of your plugin since the first beta version. For 2.x versions, the GUI updates in FLStudio are laggy (about 1 sec wait time between turning knobs, temporarily freezes FLStudio graphical updates) as if it were competing for graphical resources. I had no issues with the 1.x versions.
You made mouse-scroll available on every knob and fader - I like that very much. Would you please consider to implement that feature for the preset selection, too? In particular I'm asking for that feature for the E.R. selection. Without that it's so much work to try to find the best E.R. for that special needs of the current project...
With regards to the Global Preset Selection - What I find much more useful to find the best preset for the current need is if the preset list won't disappear after I clicked on one preset.... it would be much more time efficient to just scroll through the presets with the mouse wheel or with left click on the list that won't disappear after each click but when I close it with a click on a special close button.
Hi, I had issues with recalling parameters on the previous version, but now I have the VST3 everything is working fine ! And I'm glad because this reverb is AWESOME. It is quickly becoming my go-to for big lushy sounds (big vocals, cinematic sounds...). I use this, Signaldust Tila2 for rooms, and the Bricasti impulses for more realistic environments. Nothing more needed ! Really impressed with this plug-in ! Thanks to you Denis Tihanov for making such good work available for free, without people like you I couldn't be able to mix records .
Denis, I managed to make the vst3 64-bit work in Cubase with another installation :) awesome plugin again and Im so happy that you gave credits to Jesus Christ!! be blessed bro :) If I can help for any suggestions I would say to make it commercial sale ready. add : - mousewheel variation switching.
I tried it today in Logic Pro X, AU format: it crashes the Logic AU validation, but it can be used very well by opening it into the DDMF Metaplugin (which I have). Very interesting sound and very refined interface, I really like it.
My favorite free reverb with Sanford Reverb. Among those I have tested, it ranks first with Sanford a close second. I may have not done Freeverb3 justice though, but its ugliness and complete user unfriendliness just made its use more difficult than necessary.
1) Oril River 2) Sanford reverb 3) Epicverb and Voxengo OldSkoolverb 4) Tonebooster reverb v3 (not free) 5) TAL reverb II 6) Freeverb3 7) Cockos Reaverbate 8) Ambience.
1) OrilRiver OR Stone Voices Ambient 4.3 2) Sanford reverb 3) Epicverb and Voxengo OldSkoolverb 4) Tonebooster reverb v3 (not free) 5) TAL reverb II 6) Freeverb3 7) Cockos Reaverbate 8) Ambience.
I can't decide between Orilriver and Ambient, they are a bit different but both excellent and versatile. Ambient after version 4.3 is no longer free but costs $12, which is very cheap with regards to the quality of the product. Both Orilriver and Ambient are on par with very good commercial reverbs.
Hi! I am also a Reaper user but never did not have this problem. There is such that when you reopen a project the label changes on the preset window of the plugin but all parameters are saved and it is not a problem.
Thanks denis, now I understand. When I said switch back and forth this is what I meant. When I would reopen my song Oril was always on the Default verb, but it never had the Default sound. So I would switch to another setting then go back to Default and the sound would be there. My mistake in not understanding was probably caused because I use the "Little Room" verb a lot on my vocals. So when I would open up my song I didn't recognize the verb and looking at the settings I would see the Default setting displayed. I never really looked at the knobs and sliders until you mentioned it today. Thanks I get it now.
I've managed to check out the VST3 version in WaveLab Pro 9.5, but the AU version comes up with an error "ERROR: -4 IN CALL AudioUnitRender reverb" in the RENDER TEST when attempting to load it in Logic Pro X 10.4.1 running on Mac OS X 10.12.6.
HI. Hoping to get some help. The reviews and videos of this reverb look fantastic. I recently downloaded Cakewalk by Bandlab for free after a long time away from any recording (Sonar about 12 years ago was the last time I did anything). I inserted Oril River into my fx on a vocal track and got a hideous squealing and then audio cut out. All levels were maxed. I'm sure it is something I am doing wrong. I don't have this issue with Cakewalk's included reverb FX plugin. Anyone have any ideas? I'd really like to be able to use this. Thanks in advance.
I also have the problem of failed validation in Logic Pro X. I re-downloaded file and before trying to install read the brief License Ageement document wwhich includes installation and other informaiton. It does not appear to have informaiton regarding and AU version of the plugin. Only VST and VST3 for Mac. There was also no i.component file included in the files. The document itself provides the follwoing:
system drive." So I'm concluding that there is no support for an au version of the plugin. Therefore it won't work in Logic Pro X. Denis Tihanov if you could confirm this, it would help many of us from trying to make something happen that is not supposed to. I appreciate all your work and anyone who provides a free plugin deserves respect in my book. But I use Logic as my main DAW and am sorry to say I am missing the opportunity to experience that work as it really seems to be a great plugin. Wishing you well.
We need and ask for AU too, will help in multiplication of your work! We also have lost too many time and efforts in trying to resolve that Logic validation issue. Hope to find any successful solution soon! Thank you.
Meanwhile, I succeeded in using OrilRiver in Logic through intermediate VST-hosting plug-ins, such as the free Kushview Elements or the DDMF MetaplugIn. Not the definitive solution, for sure, but it works.
This is a great plugin. However, in Reaper its chosen preset is not saved, and is reverted to 'Default' every time the Reaper project is reopened. This happens both with VST2 and VST3 versions of Oril River.
Unfortunately, there will be no more updates. Plugin development has been suspended. The developer did not provide for saving the name of the preset, but all parameters must be saved. There is one moment, the registration of the change in the parameter is performed along with the passage of the audio signal. Maybe because you switch the presets without listening to their switching, there is no registration of parameter changes and their saving. For example, this can happen when a plugin is muted. Try to send a signal to the plug-in and switch the presets, everything should work.
Thanks for answering. That solution only works when using presets (on my end), if knobs are tweaked manually it doesnt work. Seems that only thing that works is enabling record-arm of the track, even just switching it off-on for a moment, then the state gets saved. Must put a note about that, state that will get saved with Reaper project is the one that was at the moment before turning off record-arm, if tweaked further it has to be record arm on-off again. 2b1af7f3a8
