As I try as much as I can to get a full 64 bits setup to get rid of any problem that could arise with bridging, I recently reconsidered the bundled Cubase RoomWorks reverb and rediscovered it, in a way. And, actually, I don't think it's that bad.
For more than three years, I've been using my beloved Ariesverb, which is sadly an abandonware stuff without 64 bits version. Comparing it to Roomworks again, yes, there is a difference using great hall/cathedral kind of settings when you push the send level to an unrealistic one, in example. But well... I must admit that it's not as obvious than I thought at first place when purchasing it.
So, I'm just wondering what made some of you avoid RoomWorks and choose a third party algo reverb instead and, subsidiary question, which one and for which usage.
Thanks for any insight.
