Technically a "spring reverb" similar but interesting characteristics.

Warning, This is an early version thanks to Jan Brählers monstrous all pass filter. It's pretty CPU Heavy but sounds alright ;) Just needs some early reflections which have a proper chirp at the beginning.

Came upon the idea that Jans filter was essentially a dispersion filter simulating springy sounds.. I have developed that forward to make a spring reverb. I have taken the knob GUI from 2cAudios Resource files.

Spring rendered in 3d Program, You Drag it up and down to determine the spring length.

Sorry that the GUI is so big.. will need compacting and re-arranging.. a touch wonky at the moment.

PreFilter-Filtered Dry signal before entering the springs
Tension-How tight the springs are,
Decay-Length of Reverb
Spread-How wide to make the stereo image.
Mod-Modulation of springs, good for choral effects on tonal sounds.
Dampening EQ for the Springs.

Hello - I was looking for a decent spring to use on vintage modular synth sounds (think Keith Emerson). And here it was. Thanks!
