This is my fave (at least for Hammond & guits) ;-)

Apart from that I really like to use the EMT 140 Plate Reverb Powered Plug-In by UAD!

I have two questions:
1 – What are the differences between Aether, Breeze and B2?
2 – Which one would be better, NI Bundle of Classic Reverbs or B2?

I have two questions:
1 – What are the differences between Aether, Breeze and B2?

They are all algorithmic reverbs.

Aether was 2C Audio’s first product. It is an excellent reverb for all purposes, but it particularly shines on acoustic instruments and special FX. It is moderately CPU heavy. You can load 2-4 instances comfortably on most modern computers.

Breeze was 2C Audio’s second product. It uses the same reverb engine as Aether, but has a more basic feature-set and is less complicated to use. It also is MUCH lighter on CPU than Aether. You can easily load 8-12 instances of the effect on most modern computers.

B2 is 2CAudio’s newest product. It is a new reverb engine. It has the most in-depth feature set (but not complicated in my opinion). I believe it is the ‘Omnisphere’ of reverbs, because, it’s presets are so good, but there is also so much tweaking from the ground up that you can do yourself. It also has great room sounds, and while it’s not convolution reverb, I personally feel that B2’s room sounds are better than most convolution reverbs. (I have previously used Quantum Leap Spaces for convolution reverbs before).

To me, Aether is almost made redundant by B2, because B2 seems to be a superior version of Aether. Some will prefer the interface of Aether though. Additionally, B2 is VERY CPU heavy. It can significantly increase render time (if you are not rendering in real-time). It is better to just run 1-2 instances, though powerful computers will be able to handle 3-4.

The signature of 2CAudio’s reverbs are the reverb decay, depth, and clarity. Most algorithmic reverbs have terrible decays/reverb tails. B2 in particular doesn’t, it is just a pure sound from start to finish. Once you start making 100 second reverbs in the FX section, you will just get lost creating dreamy soundscapes.

I have been a 2CAudio customer since very early on in their development. They are still not particularly well-known (not compared to Native Instruments or Altiverb) – but everyone who I’ve asked to try the demos of their products, has not looked back.

This is not to say that other reverbs are bad, and particularly it’s good to have other options for convolutoin reverb. But in terms of algorithmic reverbs, I don’t believe that B2 has any equal, especially for the price ($250). I recommend you try the demos on their website.

I just picked up the new Native Instruments Reverbs. I used to work with a Lexicon 224 and the new NI reverbs have the same lush characteristics as the original hardware version.

PCM Native Reverb is my favorite when it comes to reverb.

I use integrated reverb in Presonus Studio One. Very good reverb.

Gareth Coker being awesome, as usual… Thanks for the very in depth explanation.
Which one would be more appropriate for orchestral stuff?

Valhalla Room, CSR Hall and an outboard Lexicon MX300 do most of the reverb lifting here.
