Dankverb by PerforModule

DankVerb is a selection of 150 delicious reverbs suitable for post-apocalyptic sound design. These are not meant for happy, pristine spaces, but rather for pouring on vibe and character with blatant (or subtle) dosages of rich, gritty darkness. These reverbs are meant for dirty places. Dark places. Scary places. Places you know you shouldn’t go, but something inside compels you to.

A Robust Collection Covering All Needs

The DankVerb IRs range from minimal ambiences to vastly huge spaces, sampled at 192kHz/24-bit, ideal for usage in professional sound design for film or audiobook to perceptibly place objects in creepy locations. DankVerb IRs are suitable for a dystopian, post-apocalyptic science fiction sort of setting as well as a dark sorcery fantasy style setting — as indeed a dramatic modern psychological horror setting. Need the chamber echo of an ooze-infested monster’s lair from the depths of a subterranean dungeon? Or perhaps the cavernous ambience of a massive sentient robot office building that occupies the space of an entire continent? Or maybe a crazed lunatic’s personal torture lab.


By combining different multiple algorithmic reverb tails in this manner, “extra-big” sounds have been achieved, blending solid early reflections that present psychoacoustic cues evoking physical placement in environments as well as opulent, fertile decay tails each with their own nuanced behavior as they fade to silence.

Many reverb processors have the detrimental result of making sounds feel “thin” or “overly washed out” when applied, but these IRs tend to avoid that problem.


There are ten colors (flavors) of IR, each comprised of an amalgamation of various reverberation processors which have been grouped by color and set to carefully calculated settings, blended simultaneously to form ultra-thick sustain tails that are packed with a lush density far beyond that attainable with any of the individual units on their lonesome.

Five Sizes – Three Tones

Each of the 10 varieties of DankVerb has had a matrix of multiple IRs crafted for it: (5 sizes) x (3 tonal foci). This gives fifteen total IRs for each “flavor”, for a grand total of one hundred and fifty different presets to choose amongst!

“Ambient” is the minimal length and is good for imparting a sense of realism (3D depth) to raw sounds without adding much of a perceptible tail. “Room” to “Hall” all tend on the larger sizes given their archetypes. If one you try is too large for your intended purpose, try the next corresponding smaller size. “Arena” is of near-infinite decay time, for exceedingly vast spaces.

The tones include…

  • Low (for a darker, warmer, boomier sound).
  • Mid (for a more mid-focused, relatively neutral sound).
  • High (for a brighter, chillier, more shimmery sound).
  • Ambient
  • Room
  • Chamber
  • Hall
  • Arena
