So get it if you can.
Thanks..appreciate the reply. Can you tell me just why
you feel Eventide Blackhole is "not good really
"? And why do you think Valhalla Reverb plugins are the best to go for?
I'd love to get more details from you on these points, as the more you tell me, the clearer the understanding I'll have of your own experiences and where you're coming from on all of this.

Thanks, dude, for the feedback..nice one.
Obviously the price is a lot more attractive, too..with the VintageVerb currently selling for 1/4 the price of the Blackhole, and that's what really got me wondering about these two..I mean, I get the Blackhole has that ribbon feature..but there doesn't really seem to be all that much more to justify such a huge difference in the price.
Sound-wise..and this is based on the demo vids I've seem..the Blackhole seems to sound a little "clearer" when applied to something, whereas the VintageVerb sounds like it's slightly warm and muddy..or maybe it's just how it's been applied in those instances.
But yeah, there's a big difference between $50 and the best part of $200..so it's certainly looking like I'll be going with the VintageVerbbased on what you guys are telling me.

Yeah, like I said above to Relic, the Vintageverb sounds like it's slightly" warm and muddy" to my ears. What I guess I should have said is that it's sound has more of an analog feel to it, compared with the BlackHole unit, which would maybe be better on the kind fo music I make.
But I hear you on the high-end units and going with Lexicon in general. That's something I've thought about, too, in the past..funny you should mention them here like this now.
