Learn RV7000 Advanced Reverb in Reason

The RV700 Advanced Reverb is really a very awesome Reverb. It’s a bit old and by now its considered a classic Reverb in the software world IMHO. The RV7000 is advanced and flexible without ever getting too complicated, and lets you dial in your desired reverb sound in seconds, and saving it as your own preset. The future of reverberation, only for Reason users.

The Sections

The RV7000 is made up of three separate sections whose controls and settings are easily accessed from the fold-out remote panel: the Reverb, the main workhorse in RV7000, always enabled. The EQ, for processing of the wet signal. And the Gate, which can be applied to any chosen reverb program or algorithm, allowing for very sophisticated gating effects.

The Reverb

The reverb engine consists of nine carefully crafted reverb algorithms, with seven individual parameters each: Small Space, Room, Hall, Arena, Plate, Spring, Echo, Multitap and Reverse, each with up to seven individual parameters. Where some algorithms simply make up the basic reverb types, others are less traditional: Spring is a very accurate emulation of a classic spring reverb, and Echo is a Reverb/Delay combo that works wonders with vocal samples.

The EQ

Hitting the EQ switch on the front panel calls up a handy parametric and low shelving equalizer for additional tweaking of your reverberated signal. Combine this section with the HF Damp and HF Smooth knobs on the front panel, and be the master of your wet signal’s every frequency.

The Gate

Instead of having a traditional gate algorithm squeezed in with the others, the RV7000 keeps its gate on the outside, letting you apply gating to any and all reverb types. Ever heard a gated Spring Reverb? You have now. You are also free to trigger the gate with CV or MIDI, and to record and automate it as you desire. Which is of course the case with all the knobs and parameters inside and outside of the RV-7000.
