miniVerb – Universal 8-BIT / Chiptune Echo Reverb Effect

It recreates that classic digital echo/reverb sound, made famous by iconic consoles such as the NES and SNES, with added features like two filters (post/pre), vibrato, and crusher (bit crusher, downsampler, pitch shifter).

Echo Section and Tips

The Echo Section can be used to simulate the tricks used in early video game consoles to add a sense of space/reverb to the sounds. For a more classic approach, you can use a single delay line with a very short time and no feedback, and width set to mono. For a more modern approach, you can switch the Echo to Double Delay Line and increase the width for a wider setting. To simulate a 90s fake reverb/echo (like the SNES), you can play with longer times and add some feedback to simulate a reverb tail.

Classic Consoles

miniVerb was inspired by the sound of classic game consoles and retro computers of the 80s and 90s. Early consoles didn’t have much power for DSP effects, so the video game composers at that time had to improvise and create unique soundscapes with limited resources. miniVerb pays homage to this era of video game sound design, giving modern producers and composers the ability to add a touch of retro nostalgia to their music.
