OVERVIEW

From sopping-wet spring reverb to state-of-the-art echo, the complete evolution of this timeless, haunting effect awaits you.

Reverb emulates the natural echo that occurs because of an environment's acoustics. Think of how your guitar would sound if you plucked a note while standing in a big empty gymnasium-the RV400 can produce that sound, even if you're playing in your bedroom!

The RV600 contains BEHRINGER's Real Sound Modeling (RSM) processor and DSP technology, giving it the incredible power to make your guitar sound like you're playing in a cave, a cathedral, or even the outer reaches of the cosmos. With the RV600, putting studio-caliber reverb into your signal chain is easier than ever before.

Just twist the dedicated dial to select dead-on modeling of Ducking, Space, Cave, Tile, Echo, vintage '63 Spring, Spring, Plate, Room, Chamber and Hall reverbs. Tweak the dedicated Mix, Decay, Time and Tone controls along with the Trails On/Off switch to create reverb that is resonant, abrupt, or just plain otherworldly! The brilliant blue LED tells you when it's working while the top-quality on/off switch preserves the signal integrity in bypass mode. You can power this stomp box with a 9V battery or a DC power supply (not included).

Why settle for one species of reverb? Plug into the RV600 and bring the whole evolutionary tract along for the ride.

FEATURES
  • The ultimate Reverb Modeler that delivers the whole history from classic spring reverbs to high-end studio reverbs”at the touch of a footswitch
  • Real Sound Modeling (RSM) combines state-of-the-art DSP technology with sophisticated algorithms to emulate real acoustic environments
  • Experience any reverbs from Spring, Plate, Room, Hall, Ducking, Echo to Space sounds that you have never heard before
  • Dedicated Mix, Decay, Time, Type, Tone and Trails controls for awesome sound shaping
  • Status LED for effect on/off and battery check
  • Runs on 9V battery or the BEHRINGER PSU-SB DC power supply (not included)

Got this to add ambiance to my 1978 PAiA model 1551 Stringz n Things analog string synthesizer. I needed a compact, affordable reverb that had a wide range of settings and stereo input/output capability, since my PAiA is equipped with the optional 1551 sterero output board.

The RV600 was the only option I found meeting all those criteria. It's small enough to fit on the shelf that is in front of the keyboard on the PAiA, has two truly discrete channels and lets one set the unit to provide anything from tight slapback reverb to Grand-Canyon like deeply extended resonance. I also like the fact it lets you tweak the tone of the output, which is critical when using a chorus based instrument like the PAiA.

I don't have short battery life issues with the RV600, since I power it with a feed from from a small, 5 output "octopus" style 9v wall wart I got on eBay, which also powers a NADY MM-141 mini mixer that lets me adjust the balance of the two final outputs from the RV600.

The worst thing I can say about the RV600 is the interaction between the decay and time adjustments is very complex, so it can take time to learn how set this unit to get the precise type of reverb you are looking for. Tiny changes to the Decay setting have a big impact on the sound; in particular, when setting the RV600 to emulate larger spaces (such as "Hall" or "Space") if you start to get "ringing" or if the repeats are too extended, the way to fix that is not to change the decay but instead slowly tweak the time setting.

The only other negative -- which is more about my whole rig than the RV600 -- is using this item in a two channel system does require a rat's nest of cables: two channels of keyboard out to a stereo Ernie Ball volume pedal, then two out of that to the RV600, then two out of that to the NAD MM-141, which then sends the final mix to two separate amps. I also have two cables that go to another Ernie Ball mono volume pedal, which I use to control the keyboard sustain.

Playing for about 12 years now, and just starting to explore reverb pedals due to a recent amp of mine not having any built in. This pedal has lots of options, but none of them are particularly good - they're not BAD, per se, but neither are they anything worth writing home about. Yeah, it will add some ambient thickness to your sounds, but it's nothing like a simple reverb build into a decent amp; no amount of tweaking could make this sound like an organic part of my tone. It all sounded like a post-production afterthought to my fundamental tone instead of part of it. A fine option if you're on a very limited budget and can begrudge that kind of sound, though.

Comments about Behringer RV600 Reverb Machine Modeling Effects Pedal:

You'll find similar reverb pedals at higher prices claiming to sound like a vintage reverb found in certain well known american/uk amps. Behringers goal here is to bring you unto the stage of a professional performer and offer same quality reverb effects, while keeping your budget in check
Behringer's RV600 reverb pedal is a fraction of the cost of other reverb pedals, and are very quiet, and have so many reverb options for you to choose from. Aside from draining your battery at a 4 hour gig or practice, an adapter can bought for less than a pack of smokes. Conclusion: I give this pedal an 8 out of ten for features, price and ease of use!

      Love it. I'm tired if gear snobs giving lower priced equipment a bad name this pedal is amazing great quality it won't break if you treat your pedals right. It is made of plastic but it works and feels like a dream. I have bought many "cheap pedals" and they have a better sound then most of the higher priced pedals.

        Amazing for playing worship music!! It's not an Eventide H9, but for the price its unbeatable. The space reverb is great for ambient swells, but also the '63 spring reverb is awesome for most playing styles. This thing has everything you need in a reverb pedal. If you're a millionaire that likes complex multi effect pedals get the H9, if not then get this amazing little pedal.

              Comments about Behringer RV600 Reverb Machine Modeling Effects Pedal:

              This pedal is unashamedly Behringer's clone of the Line 6 Verbzilla. It's much less sturdy, being made of plastic (as opposed to the adamantium-encased series of Line 6 pedals), but it sounds great. All of the reverb settings sound authentic, and the same variety of options exists. Changing reverb settings is difficult, so this would not be the best choice for someone's only reverb unless you're fine with setting it and leaving it. I use it as a one-trick pony for the shimmer effect and use my EHX Cathedral for my other reverbs. One side-effect: depending on where your mix knob is set, you are probably going to hear a slight cut in volume (for me to hear the effect to any significant degree, the volume drops some). However, the pedal features a 'trails' switch (which I find preferable anyway), and when the trails switch is engaged, the cut volume will also be the bypass volume, so you can adjust your overall signal and amp volume to be where you want it without having to boost yourself just to use this pedal.

              It feels flimsy (the first one I got died pretty quickly, but the replacement has outlived its expected board life by a fair bit), but it sounds good. If you've got an expansive enough rig to have room for two pedals, this is a great little addition.

                This may not be a Eventide Space Reverb, but if you're looking for a variety of reverb effects to experiment before jumping into the deep end of the price point, this unit is an excellent bargain. I've only had it a couple weeks, but it's quite deep and flexible. All the basics, tone, decay time, depth and mix level are here plus you can turn trails on or off when you step off the effect for a natural release. Even a basic delay setting as a bonus. Great sound for the price.

                    I can say, best buy for your money but why would I do that?!?! This Effects Pedal sounds great! Just got mine today and I could not believe how full it made my Hughes and Kettner Tube Meister 18 sound. Of course as you know, the head for some strange reason has no reverb. Shame on Hughes and Kettner for that but it was an easy fix. I like RV600 Reverb Machine and yes if it were to break I would buy another one.

                    The reverb is a little bit "fake" sounding but you get what you pay for. I'd say it's worth the price if you're not willing (or able) to spend a lot of money on effects but really want a reverb. Very wide range of sounds, tons of okay reverbs but none of them sound amazing or mind-blowing. "Space" is neat to play with but is more of a gimmick than anything. If you're going for an ambient synthy sound, you're better off using a keyboard.

                          This Reverb is more capable then the one I already have. And it's from the Same People. The old one says..'Digital Reverb', this one say 'Reverb Machine'. They mean it. There is a differnce. This from...the guy who gave Jan & Dean the idea for their Reverb, (XTAL) and disappointed the Beach Guys who had a very good Reverb Coil, according the some, the only one on the market. That is until Jan & Dean's new Reverb. I like competition, Monopoly's are not fun.

                              For what it costs, this unit cannot be beat. Acouple of the reverbs offered are not whatI like, but you may. The vintage settings are worth the price of admission - think how much cheaper than a vintage reverb unit by that major brand. Plastic case isn't a big deal to me - using it mostly at home anyway, and I'm more apt to keep it on top of the cab than on the floor. It DOES eat batteries like a bustard. I went thru 2 batts on the first day I had it. I bought the adapter for 9 clams.

                                I pair this with a six watt tube amp and get a variety of excellent harmonica tones. An extremely versatile device.

                                  This effects pedal will help create those warm dark sounds that some of us look for in our music.
