6 Reverb Programs

The R1 offers 6 studio-quality Reverb Programs - Spring, Hall, Plate, BFR, RFRCT (Refract), and Air.
It can quickly go from from intimate and smaller room sounds to channeling choirs of angels. Every program can be tuned and tweaked and then saved to one of nine on-board presets.

- The Spring program emulates an excited spring reverb commonly found in tube amps with loads of transducing drip. Easily go from subtle to full-on surf rock. Experiment with the decay knob to get more than average amounts of reverb not found in traditional amp spring reverb tanks.

- The Hall program provides the acoustics of large live sound spaces like concert halls to arenas. Longer decays and higher X knob settings result in a massive wash of ambiance. Shorter decay and lower X settings allow for a more intimate reverb expression.

Plate- The Plate program emulates a smooth analog plate reverb with nice even diffusion inspired by famous plates like the EMT 140.

BFR - BFR is a no holds, big, f____, reverb. This is more than a giant arena reverb. It's a hall-esque reverb with rich and lush decay in a vast cavern filled with choirs of angels.

RFRCT (Refract) - The RFRCT program allows for lovely,charming, glitch-like, and reverse delay textures hovering over a largely diffused reverb. The Rate controls on RFRCT change how often the glitch and reverse effects occur while Depth controls the overall volume of these elements.

Air - The Air program offers a larger diffused reverb but has a more"crisp" clarity to its decay. Explore slow-building sounds that don't get in the way of your playing. Air compliments keys and synths as well.

9 on-board presets, 128 accessible via MIDI

The R1 can save up to 9 on-board presets, and up to 128 are accessible via MIDI. On-board presets are accessible with the bank switch.

The R1 employs a powerful reverb engine that allows for the true preset spill over. When you switch presets, the new preset loads, and the previous preset is allowed to decay naturally.

Momentary Functions

Press and hold the SUS/LATCH (Sustain/Latch) switch to momentarily sustain the current reverb and continue to play over it through the same reverb algorithm. No dry signal here!

Clicking the SUS/LATCH switch lets you latch the present reverb decay while you play over it.
