The history part of this video has quite a few wrong informations.
EMT plates have a steel plate inside, not aluminium. They weight 180kg, depending on the version ( I have two of them and had to carry them several times, ouch).
The first digital reverb came from EMT in 1976, four years before the AMS RMX16 (which was released in 1980, not ´82). It was called EMT250. Their next model was released in 1980 (EMT 251). It also had a nonlinear program, more or less at the same time as the AMS.

Yes, but are they salted or dry roasted?

I love the gated reverb sound of some 80's records, it created a tremendous punch alongside very clean, glassy synth tones. However, it's particular to that kind of music and it's resurrection in bland pop sh*te today gives me no cause for celebration.

Still, it heralded a sea change in recording as many drums sounded like cardboard boxes and margerine tubs on record before then, particularly in the rock sector.
