4 Best Free Reverb Plugins That Will Actually Make Your Mix Better


I have chosen the best sounding high-quality free reverb plugins with useful features that sound amazing and can actually beat any similar commercial reverb plugins available in the market. You can use these free plugins as an alternative to reverb plugin which is already available inside you DAWs.

OldSkoolVerb by Voxengo

With nice user interface to sound quality and separate EQ section for further shaping your reverb sound this free reverb vst got it all, in short Old is Gold. It comes with ready to use professionally designed presets to get you started. In this free vst there are some features that I want to talk about.

First is Mode, there are five modes available to choose your reverb sound from, Plus, Deep, Reverse, Old, Slapback. Each mode works differently and gives different reverb favor.

Second is Damping, this free vst have lo damping in addition to high damping which is hard to find in free reverb plugins. It makes very easy to get rid of reverb on the low end. this plugin uses little CPU, not too much but uses some, you get my point.

Commercial Reverb Free by Bitsonic

The first free reverb plugin from the three reverb plugins is Bitsonic’s Commercial Reverb Free. It is also available as the paid version with extra features. Use it on kicks, drum loops as it gives instance ambiance or space, use the preset named Kick Sense of Space, this preset works like a charm on kick drums, especially EDM Kicks and loops. You can use it as regular reverb plugin but I found it very useful on kick drums and loops just to bring life to the drum kits, it also very user-friendly.
