This is a pedal made for those who are looking for Eventide's more unique reverb effects. There's room, hall, spring, plate, reverse and shimmer, just to name a few. It's fully MIDI, updatable by USB 2.0, true bypass, can work in guitar or line level applications and can work in either mono or stereo.

UTILIZATION

The best thing is that this pedal is fully MIDI. You can have tons of presets set up and switch them all with a MIDI board. That means no fumbling around on the ground all the time every time you want to switch to different presets that are a few banks away. The switches are extremely high quality, and it's true bypass so there will be no direct harm to your tone. It's extremely sturdy and built like a tank. You could hurl this thing off the top floor of a skyscraper, and it should still work. The Eventide manuals are fairly long and a bit boring, but if you take the time to sit down with them, you'll know the thing in and out. The menus themselves are a lot easier to use than the rack stuff, I've found. There are tons and tons of features in here, so it's hard to exactly explain every little detail, so it's best to read the manual.

SOUND QUALITY

The reverb on this pedal is great. Eventide is known for lush reverbs that really fill the room. The hall and plate reverbs are probably some of my favorite in the pedal. The ModEchoVerb is probably my main one I use for lead tones as it makes the room sound huge when it's in stereo, adds that bit of echo that I think all lead tones should have and gives it that slight bit of modulation to help cut through the mix.

OVERALL OPINION

While this pedal isn't quite as useful as the other pedals, it still contains some of the world famous Eventide tones in a small stomp box. If you're a huge reverb fan, you should definitely take a look at this, especially since it's fully MIDI implemented.
