More than a one trick pony.

This pedal is astonishing. Stepping on it make you realise that it’s not your typical reverb pedal. It’s just huge, powerful and atmospheric. The pedal itself makes adjusting the parameters quite simple. Connecting the pedal to your computer, which is a good idea, allows you access to other presets. These presets demonstrate the versatility of the algorithm. Although you can configure the pedal without the app, like setting tails after switching the pedal off or turning the buffer on and off, it’s just simpler to do so here.
The only downside for me is accessing the midi and this is just because I’m not used to midi. I’m trying to daisy chain it with other midi comparable pedals and I’m just finding it difficult to select the exact connections I need. I just wish the pedal that midi in and through 5 pin dins. Its just a bit more awkward but totally possible.
I’m absolutely delighted with this reverb.

Amazing effect! I use it with my Korg MicroS and it sounds absolutely amazing!!! The deepest possible sound, like in a big big concert hall with a lot od possibilities


shoegaze in a box +

Andy Bell from Ride advised this as a shoegaze pedal on youtube. I didn't see it that much though in shoegaze rigs on you tube, so I had my doubts. But it really is that good to put in front of some dirt. Andy Bell was right. It is a Slö , an Afterneath, a reverse reverb, ... at the same time,.... Very fast dialed in, very intuitive. The tone control almost can get you in shimmer like regions.
To be clear; I am writing this review from a shoegaze point of view.

The modulation is beautifull and can be controlled with rate and depth. It goes well with dirt.

The sound is clear but not sterile, not too cheesy; it stays mysterious. The big advantage is that it can carry a lot of dirt without losing sound caracteristics. Many other reverb pedals aren't capable to carry that much noise and still have this ambient vibe. They get muddy to soon.

Very user friendly. The secondary modes are an exemple fot other manufacturers like EHX. A led knob opens the wel written down secondary modes.

The Gravity knob gives that reverse and wet mix effect - hazy - sound in many forms, so essential for shoegaze. Off course nothing beats a Lexicon reverse reverb if you just want that pure sound.

It goes just as long as you want it to go.

It is a very simple pedal if you understand the knobs. Not like a H9, or a Space or a Bigsky. A Space Pedal would give you this and also other top reverbs. But because you have to menu dive, it won't rock that hard as this one simple box.

I think the price is good for the value. It is 100 euro more then another categorie of reverb pedals. But it has the same power as the 'Big Reverbs' and overclasses that categorie under 300 euro.

Off course, it goes 100 % wet

You've got to have some experience with effect on reverb before really understanding the possibilities of this pedal. I have been exploring reverse reverb, delay based reverb, modulated reverb, ... in other pedals for shoegaze sounds , with dirt (Slo, Afterneath, Context, ... ) for a while. Before this investigations, this pedal would have been too much for me because I didn't understand al this things.


just one sound

sounds good, but not like H9. I like that it is compact and durable,
expression pedal does not work well, very rude! for this reason I sent it back, I will take BigSky..
