UAD for me as well. Most of the time though, I reach for impulses. I have an incredible impulse library that is so scary real, it’s been my go to. The only actual verb/plate I use is the UAD plate and the UAD EMT. If you’ve not really given impulses a fair shot, give them a try Jonathan and buy some quality impulses. I think you will find them so intense, you may actually like me a little. LOL!
I’ve been using either the Waves impulse/IR loader, or Voxengo Pristine Space. Totally blown away by them. They do plates, halls, gates, everything…and they are of course real rooms as opposed to verb. I know you probably know about them and use them already…but if not, they are definitely worth looking into. There are sites that offer some really awesome free ones too. I have a link somewhere…these guys are so obsessed with shooting impulse responses, they just go nuts and give them away for free. They use all state of the art gear to do this…high end mic’s and pre’s. I think it’s noisevault.com or something. Or noizevault…one of them. Last time I was there, the impulses I grabbed knocked me out of my chair.
