I cannot recommend the neunaber WET reverb enough. If you are looking for a post-rock style reverb, this one is hard to beat. It goes from slight shimmer to ghost trails to whale songs. http://neunaber.net/products/wet-mono-reverb-v4
You can use it as a MIDI controller although not through the USB connection (which I think is a shame) so you have to have a MIDI cable and a MIDI input on your computer.
