The SP2016 was the first programmable effects box available on the market. It introduced the concept of the ‘plug-in’ to the pro audio world back in 1982, with actual hardware chips that would be plugged in under the hood.

Revered for its signature reverbs, the SP2016 was notably used by Dave Pensado, George Massenburg, Alan Sides, Roy Hendrickson, Jack Douglas, and Mick Guzauski.

The lush reverb can be heard on countless hit records by Talking Heads, Adele, Mariah Carey, Eminem, and more. Now, 36 years later, this signature sound is available for your DAW.

Six Distinct Reverbs

The SP2016 reverbs have attracted a loyal user base by using a particular blend of art and science - the result is an effect that sounds natural and distinctive. The plug-in includes authentic emulations of Room, Stereo Room, and Hi-Density Plate algorithms, each available in two versions: Vintage and Modern.

The Vintage algorithms are true to the original box, all the way down to the bit-depth. The Modern algorithms are brighter, more diffuse, and use a higher bit-depth.

Sitting in the Mix

SP2016 Reverb Parameters Controls

Control the structure of the reverb by fine-tuning the controls - including PreDelay, Decay, Position and Diffusion. The EQ section allows for simple high and low filtering of the reverb with adjustable filter ranges. The low filter can be used to cut OR boost at the specified frequency.

With the unique Position control, the ability to make a reverb effect that sits perfectly in your mix is as natural as moving one slider. This powerful tool allows you to take your listeners from the back of the room all the way to the stage while retaining all of your other settings.

Reinventing a Classic

Classic gear stands the test of time. The sound of the hardware is the result of a combination of the DSP processing and the analogue audio circuitry. Painstakingly modelling every aspect of these hardware units was neither quick nor easy but now the must-have sonic beauty of this classic reverb is available for your use in-the-box or live.

"The classic Eventide SP2016 has always been my go to reverb. It has the unique ability to make vocals, instruments and drums sit perfectly in a mix. The new SP2016 plugin now gives us all access to this incredible reverb, and no one is happier about this than me!"

—Dave Pensado (Mariah Carey, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake)

"The Eventide SP2016 was a unique reverb unit. It was the perfect Snare drum or lead vocal reverb...It fits nicely in the track and never overtakes its original sound source."

—Joe Chiccarelli (The Strokes, Morrissey, Young The Giant, U2)

"The Eventide SP2016 is our new favourite reverb. It maintains that classic sound, while giving you updated new options. You can get really creative with this one!"

—Buda & Grandz (Dave East, Jadakiss, Neyo, Juelz Santana, 50 Cent)

"I’ve always loved the smooth decay of the Room Reverb program on drums and percussion. The Stereo Room has been a favourite of mine on vocals. The new SP2016 plugin is very close to the hardware unit in character and in some ways better...The sound is slightly different, as any emulation will always be, but it excels in the same applications that I have always loved the original hardware SP2016 for."

—Mick Guzauski (Madonna, Mariah Carey, Daft Punk, Pharrell)

"I'm obsessed with the Eventide SP2016 plugin. It sounds just like the hardware version...It's an awesome tool and I'm using it all over my latest mixes!"

—Erin Tonkon (David Bowie, Lady Lamb, Esperanza Spalding)

"The way it works, the way it processes sound… it just does something that I can’t find anywhere else."

—Phil Nicolo (John Lennon, Bob Dylan, Urge Overkill, Aerosmith)

"The SP2016 brings the authentic sound of hardware to plug-in format. It sounds great on everything I throw on it. Fantastic job!"

— Alex Solano (Pulsating Waves, Alex Pro Mix)

"I really love how the two different options between vintage and modern offer a ton of choice around the zeitgeist of space design… Nobody does reverb better than Eventide, and the SP2016 is another brilliant example of this."

—Andrew Emil (AstraVox Music, Change Request)

"Needless to say, it sounds smooth, dense and natural. The sound of this plugin will take you back the countless albums that were recorded using the original SP2016. It just has that vibe. Plus, it has an intuitive, easy to use GUI." - Sound Bytes (Ginno Legaspi)
