In a reddit ama Scott Hansen (aka Tycho) did, a Redditor asks him some gear related questions, including, "What’s your favourite reverb? Do you only use analog?" Tycho answers: > "My favorite reverbs are probably the one on the Virus C series, the Ursa Major Space Station SST-282, and the Ursa Major StarGate 626. But I love Toraverb and Epicverb in the VST domain." By "Toraverb" he means the D16 Group Toraverb reverb plugin. In [an interview](http://www.soundtoys.com/tycho/), he's asked, "When I listened to your show last night, and when I listen to the records, I hear that really watery chorus reverb sound running through a lot of things. What is that?" Tycho replies: > "It’s definitely the D16 Toraverb, which has this… it’s a lot like that Ensoniq DP/4 thing. I guess it’s like a modulated reverb. But whatever’s going on in there it’s got this really weird kind of warbley thing, and I used to do a lot of pitch modulation on the actual tone or on the printed tone with the effects and just kind of warp it. So it sounds like it’s going through tape or something. And I found that I don’t really have to do that as much anymore when I use a reverb like that. So it’s really nice. But then on the Virus, that’s a Virus C, and I just felt like that series, whatever was going on with the conversion or the output stage, gives everything this warmth. It smooths things out and gives it this darker space. And so I like to run stuff through that. It’s got a nice sound."more
