"CD-SR1" Modal Resonator Powered Spring Reverb Plugin

This fully functioning VST plugin designed, programmed and developed for my masters degree final thesis successfully uses a novel method of modal resonance to produce a commercially competitive spring reverb.


A modal resonator model of spring reverb was developed and implemented as a realtime

functioning plugin in C++. Through the use of physically informed damping profiles,

interpolated lookup tables and SSE optimisation a commercially competitive sounding and performing spring reverb plugin was developed.

My full thesis report details the physics and mathematics behind this project, the functionality of the C++ programming and the intentions behind all majors decisions made during the project. This can be found below:
