Meris Verbs For LABS Soft Piano
This sample set is designed to use in conjunction with Spitfire LABS soft piano which you can download for free here:
Simply arm both this sample set and the LABS soft piano for a super lush reverb created through Meris pedals that were curated to create sounds inspired by the Ridley Scott film BLADE RUNNER.
Signals included are:
Verb 1 – Mercury 7 Lush long reverb with modulation controlling the “modulate” knob of the pedal.
Verb 2 – Mercury 7 Lush descending reverb with modulation controlling the “modulate” knob of the pedal.
Verb 3 – Mercury 7 Lush shimmering reverb with modulation controlling the “modulate” knob of the pedal.
Verb 4 Mercury 7 / Enzo, Ottobit, Hedra mentalness with mod controlling pitchy stuff again.
xtra Blade – A big pad created from Verb 4
xtra Mega Pad – An even bigger one of above
xtra Mega Verb Multi – This is verbs 1,2,&3 mixed together by myself for a really orbital soup!

Great add to Soft Piano (and others)
I haven’t tried it yet with other pianos, as another review suggested, but imagine the reverbs can combine nicely too. But Labs Soft Piano plus Reverb 1 in this kit leads to a really nice cinematic reverb piano which is highly useful. I need to spend a little more time with it to see where the others take me.
An inspirational reverb patch
A few hours before Christian posted his video about this extraordinary patch I began working on a piano melody. At that point I didn’t know where it was going or what I was going to do with it. I hadn’t even decided which piano would suit it best. I’ve used the LABS Soft Piano as my starting point on many occasions and, once I’d worked out how to use this with Ableton (on which you can’t have more than one track armed at a time), the sound of the reverb took me in a new and thoroughly inspiring direction. A little like Native Instruments’ Raum, I’d describe the Meris Verbs patch as a ‘creative reverb’. Try it and you’ll discover what I mean. It’s perfect for ambient, Harold Budd-type sounds. (Oh, and the ‘trick’ in Live is to set the ‘Input Type’ chooser on your Soft Piano track to the track on which you have the Kontakt verb patch, then on your verb track set Monitoring to ‘In’, much as you would if using a MIDI track to trigger a sequencer). I even used the ‘Mega Verb’ patch on LABS Piano Pads for my demo and I think it works beautifully. Thank you, Christian; I’d never otherwise have had the means to try the Meris stompbox on my own music.
Thanks! It even works with other pianos.
