there’s also the gvst plugins – https://www.gvst.co.uk – they’re available for linux – they’re not being maintained anymore but so far they’re stable when I try them.
for gverb, confusingly it comes in a couple of varieties – the original gverb that was ported to ladspa may actually look different than the others ported by harrison.
the traditional gverb looks something like this,
packaged under the name swh-plugins (debian-based systems – package name may be similar for your distro)
you can get tips on how to use this interface with audacity’s page -> https://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/GVerb
^ goes to nice details on how to use gverb… It compares it to “freeverb” which is supposed to be easier though I don’t think I’ve ever used it.
(it too is packaged, – bundled in package “cmt”)
I think the plugin “Gverb” that was being referred to on the thread is this one,
I suppose the gverb release by harrisson consoles would yield the best value in reverb effect. As for between freeverb3 and gverb-by-juhana, I wouldn’t know as I haven’t dabbled with freeverb3 well enough to know. It comes down to fidelity by user expectation, so try them all out and see which one works best for the case.
I’m still quite new to audio production and still picking things up as I go, so I’ve been doing some research, and if I may, I noticed something of a comment around “spectral” support (for Linux)…
@bachstudies: have you ever used vamp plugins for the spectral analysis? from what I gather these plugins work with both audacity and sonic visualizer. I am on the verge of trying these out when I noticed you are looking possibly for the same thing…(no professional in audio – still learning the ins and outs of audio production).
