music production knowledge

Arturia’s Rev Plate-140 brings back a classic. The iconic EMT 140 is the model for this new plate reverberator. For context, the original EMT 140 was a complete technological breakthrough upon its release. After all, it was the first plate reverberator in the world. Its brighter and versatile design outclassed spring reverberators at the time, becoming a favorite tool in many studios. However, it was a serious investment, costing as much as a house and weighing as much as 3 or 4 people. Now, Arturia uses it as the basis for the Rev Plate-140, combining its timeless quality with top-of-the-line innovation.
