Pulsar Audio’s Primavera offers a powerful and versatile spring reverb emulation that accommodates modern production needs while preserving the character and charm of classic units. With a range of six different models, users have the flexibility to find the perfect reverb sound for any project, from clean and open to lo-fi and vintage. Additional controls such as Tension and Excitation allow for more creativity and customization beyond traditional spring reverb options.

The Preamp section in Primavera begins with a drive control, allowing users to push the virtual circuitry into saturation and experiment with different tones. Two modes are available: Tube and Germanium, each emulating a different type of preamp circuit. This section also contains variable high and low-pass filters, giving users greater control over the processed signal’s frequency range.

Decay, Pre-delay, and Width controls shape the reverb effect to the user’s preference, while Tension and Excitation dials add extra flexibility and creativity. The Output section contains Mix and Volume controls, along with Ducking and Presence parameters to help the processed signal sit better in a mix.

Primavera is compatible with PCs running Windows 7 or higher, and Macs running macOS 10.9 and above. VST2, VST3, AU, and AAX plug-in versions are available. The plug-in is authorized via PACE’s iLok system but does not require a USB dongle. Primavera is currently available at an introductory price of $59 until April 22, 2024, after which it will cost $99.

Pulsar Audio’s Primavera is a powerful and versatile addition to any producer’s toolkit. With six unique spring reverb models and a myriad of controls for shaping the sound, it is well-suited for a range of applications and genres. Its compatibility with multiple platforms and plug-in formats makes it an accessible choice for a wide range of users. Although some purists may take issue with the emulation aspect of the plug-in, for many, Primavera will provide a practical and creative solution for incorporating classic spring reverbs into their productions.
