    New Reverbs and Plex Delay - What´s New?

    Hello, Is there anything you can say to describe what is new and different with the new reverbs and plex delays? Really curious to know, as this personally would be one of my primary reasons to upgrade apart from the power to run more in a given preset. Thanks.
