Digidesign's D-Verb is a reverb plug-in that comes free with all Pro Tools software. I've run it both in Pro Tools LE 7 and 8. I believe that the plug-in can be found in some of the earlier versions of Pro Tools, but I don't know this for sure since the earliest version that I've run is 7. The plug-in has remained unchanged as far as I can tell between these two versions however. You don't need to take any action to install the plug-in once Pro Tools is all set, as it installs all of the DigiRack plug-ins during the initial process of installing Pro Tools. The interface is really straight ahead, as I'm sure they were trying to cater to new users with their free plug-ins, or at least wanted to make them as user friendly as possible. The parameters that it has to work with include sliders for mix level, input level, diffusion, decay, pre-delay, high cut, and a low pass filter. It also has a variety of algorithms to choose between different types of reverbs, as well as three different room size options. Some of the algorithms include hall, church, plate, and room reverbs. I don't think that there is a manual for this plug-in, unless they say something about it in the Pro Tools manual.

SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

I'm currently running the Digidesign D-Verb plug-in and Pro Tools LE 8 on a Mac Book Pro that has a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM. I run Pro Tools 8 with a Digi 002R audio interface or a Digidesign Micro Box if I'm on the go. I've also run the plug-in a small amount on a Pro Tools HD system. However, no matter what system I'm running this plug-in on, it doesn't seem to take up much processing power at all. I should mention that when I use it, I do so on an auxiliary track and I bus individual audio tracks to it to save processing power anyway, which is what I do with all reverb and delay plug-ins to a degree. Either way, you should be able to run D-Verb smoothly if you're able to run Pro Tools well.

OVERALL OPINION

Digidesign's D-Verb is their original reverb plug-in, and from what I can tell, is one that hasn't seen too many changes in make up over the years. It's always been easy to use, and while the sound quality isn't up there with TL Space or anything like that, it does have a very respectable sound that is capable of getting a wide palette of different reverb sounds. While I'd personally recommend adding TL Space Convolution Reverb to your Pro Tools suite, D-Verb is more than adequate for those just getting started.
