Future Audio's AD 480 Acoustic Designer is a Universal reverb app, released with full Audiobus support so you can add it to anything. It comes in three flavors, including a free version to try it out. Thanks to reader Florent Roux for this news!
AD 480 Pro iTunes Description:
The AD 480 pro is the first professional reverb app for your iDevice. Use it to put your music into any acoustic space you can imagine. Do you always wanted to sing in a cathedral or play guitar on a theater stage? Or do you want to give your recordings the professional acoustic touch? You are musician, DJ, producer, technician or just interested in a good sound for your music? The AD 480 pro is the solution!
The convenient user interface offers infinite options for sound manipulation. The AD 480 pro is designed for professional use in the studio, on stage or in the rehearsal room, as well as for all users and music lovers at home or on the road.

The key differences between the versions seems to be that the Free version just let's you try it out without changing anything, the Basic let's you play with the reverb parameters to shape your own sound, and the Pro "gives you everything you need to create the music you want" whatever that means. No video or audio demo yet, and searching "AD 480" on YouTube just gets you a load of commercials in 480p. They do have a slick website with references to drug use, and an interview with the CEO in German.
