Budget reverb and delay for instrument and vocal input .

Very simple interface based on plain knobs control.

not RACKMOUNT 1 unit height.
The main panel features a simple 7-segments display and 5 knobs for patch edit.



Back panel terminal connectors:
- 2 main inputs
- 2 main outputs
- bypass pedalswitch input
- impedance selector switch between MIC/ INST / LINE.

not ALGORITHMS
there are 9 reverb models available: just select the main mode with the rotary knobs and adjust feedback and time values.
TIP: The only real interesting feature is to change the parameters in real-time, however tweaking knobs creates digital artefacts.

REVIEW "Cheap and so-so quality sound, but really easy to use on-the-fly. If you don't pretend too much quality from a reverb, this could be ok."
