AudioThing Intros miniVerb 8-bit Chiptune Echo Reverb Effect

AudioThing has introduced miniVerb – an 8-bit/chiptune and lofi reverb effect, inspired by the sound of 80’s game consoles and computers.

Here’s what they have to say about it:

Early consoles didn’t have much power for DSP effects, so the video game composers at that time had to improvise. The most common way to add a sense of space/reverb to the sound was to sacrifice one of the internal tracks to play a delayed version of the original sound, essentially using a slapback echo to add depth.

The technique evolved and eventually, consoles started to take advantage of more power for real internal effects.

miniVerb recreates that classic digital echo/reverb sound, made famous by iconic consoles such as the NES and SNES, topping it with two flters (post/pre), vibrato, and crusher (bit crusher, downsampler, pitch shifter).
