Every tube in every amplifier can be tweaked or replaced with any one of 17 included tube types. ReValver even lets you modify power amp rectifiers, output transformers and tone stacks.

    Amplifier Models
    Peavey 6505
    For over 15 years, the 6505 has been the super-high gain amp for hardcore rock players worldwide. Featuring 5 - 12AX7 preamp tubes, 4 - 6L6GC power amp tubes, and Patented Resonance and Presence controls, the 6505 is the sound of rock and metal.

    Peavey 6505+
    The big brother of the 6505 boasts 6 - 12AX7 preamp tubes for additional bite.
    Peavey JSX
    With unprecedented versatility, the JSX offers the widest range of EQ options and gain structures. This 3 channel amp delivers sounds ranging from the Classic 50 to vintage British to the modern Triple XXX and all tones in between.

    Peavey XXX
    Three all-tube channels of unrelenting sustain, gain, and power makes the XXX the ULTIMATE tone machine. As hot as the name implies, the XXX rips.

    Peavey ValveKing
    Boutique features such as the patented Texture control take this amp from Class A/B saturation to vintage Class A tones, allowing guitarists to coax virtually any tone from this amplifier

    Peavey Classic
    Revered by guitarists of all genres worldwide for two decades, this amp delivers tone that is as classic as it's name.

    ACM 900
    Modeled after a British amp built with both valve and solid state components. It has only 1 channel but the two gain knobs controls the gain at two stages in the preamp. This is the sound of classic rock.

    Higher
    Modeled after the "treadplate" rectified amp which contributed to the sound of modern heavy rock. This amp has 5 modes, Normal/Clean/Modern/Red/Vintage, each with different frequency characteristics and gain.

    Bluesmaker
    Loosely based on a 1962 British classic. This amp has 2 channels, a normal and a tremolo channel.

    Fox ACS-45
    Based on a widely revered amplifier that defined the sound of the British Invasion, it's distinct tone is still as sought after today as it was then.

    Basic 100
    With one channel for guitar and one for bass, this amp has a lot of bottom. As the real thing, it does not provide much distortion but it is usually played "cleanish". The guitar and bass channels have different gain and tone stacks. The bass channel even has a "Deep" switch, shifting the frequency response of the Bass knob. On the guitar channel, the Bright switch gives you a brighter sound on lower gain.

    Matchbox
    The MatchBox is designed to provide clean to overdriven amplification with a minimum of clipping. It has as many as 4 gain stages with considerable attenuation between stages. It has a power amp in a push-pull configuration but no negative feedback (NFB). The sound is fitting for both guitar and for bass. This amp is using a very special tube configuration which gives you an extra bright sound.

    LePetite
    This amp contains preamp 3 chains in parallel which are fed into one power amp. The 3 channels can be mixed individually with the "blend" knobs.The three types are Clean/Diode/Triode. The second part of the amp consists of 1 triode tube and a push-pull pair of pentodes.

    HomeBrew SE-1
    The HomeBrew SE-1 is a low watt single ended amp with two channels. For a low watt circuit it has as many as 3 triode stages for gain. The amp has 2 channels, Clean/Dist.

    HomeBrew PP-2
    The HomeBrew PP-2 is a low watt push-pull amp with two channels and Britishtone stack.

    Effects, Stompboxes, and Utility Functions
    Peavey Revalver Mk III features a robust selection of 30 stomp-box and effects including various types of chorus, distortion, wah, tremolo, compression, limiter, delay, octaver, and much more. An FFT-based convolution reverb allows for very complex and smooth reverbs, including sampled spring reverb. Revalver also boasts 7 Utility functions including tuners, analyzer, splitters, and more.

    Stomp-Boxes

    OverDriver
    This stomp box is wired somewhat like a guitar amp, in that it is using 3 stages of distortion, but all being diodes. The "Turbo" acts like a "Master", adding some extra gain before the last stage. This stomp box could possibly be used stand alone, driving a speaker by itself.

    Chorus CS-1
    This is a versatile stereo chorus with adjustable speed and modulation depth, stereo width, feedback, delay and 3 individually adjustable filter bands on the wet signal. (The filters are available in the Tweak GUI.) A chorus can be used to fatten up the sound.

    ACS CS1 compressor
    A compressor is used to even out the volume so that the lower levels do not completely disappear. It would make any distortion module distort for longer.

    Limiter LM-3
    A limiter is specially tailored dynamics compressor. This particular limiter compresses the sound a factor 50:1 over the given threshold. It will stop sounds or transients over this threshold, limiting the output volume.

    The Slow Grow SG-1
    An auto swell effect follows you tones and removes the transients. This makes the sound appear being played backwards.

    Octapus
    Behind every great tone there is a another tone waiting to come out. With Octapus you can release this sub octave, taken from and added to your melody. The frequency triggering algorithm will only work properly on a single note at a time. You may want to be careful with chords or it will not sound as expected. The Octapus is a tight and accurate Octaver stomp box.

    Flanger FL-Duo
    A flanger works much like a chorus, by mixing a varying delayed signal with the original to produce a series of phase cancellations. These "notches" make up sound of the flanger. The FL-Duo, is actually two flangers rolled into one. They share the same knobs, except for the mixing controls.

    Texas Treble Maker
    The Texas Treble Maker is a so called "treble booster". The purpose is to equalize the frequency spectrum of the guitar to make the distortion smoother. The overtones of roughly every kind of sound are progressively fainter the higher up the spectrum they are. This means that the distortion a sound generates in a distortion circuit mainly originates from the overtones of the lowest frequencies of the sound. This places the frequency range of the distortion components in a particular place of the spectrum. - A treble booster is designed to reshape the clean sound so that the distortion components originates in equal amount from each overtone. The result is a much smoother distortion, and of course a lot more distortion.

    The Sher'ff
    The Sher'ff stomp pedal constitutes a rather rough but versatile distortion effect. Modeled loosely after a 1980's era cousin it's perfect for blues and rock, either by itself or together with a clean amp channel.

    Re-Lay 2 Delay
    The Re-Lay 2 is a double delay with a lot of options. You can set the volume of each tap, plus 2 individual filters (in the tweak GUI) per tap.

    Re-Lay 4 Delay
    The Re-Lay 4 is a quadruple delay with a lot of options. You can set the volume of each tap, plus 2 individual filters (in the tweak GUI) per tap.

    Greener
    A classic, yet so simple. This late '70s solid state stomp box is using a diode clipping circuit, shaped by pre-, and post filtering for optimal smooth overdrive / distortion.

    Driver
    This is a very versatile stomp box which delivers anything from smooth overdrive (with "Blues" turned up) to a heavily distorted and overloaded sound ("Gain" and "Muffler" turned up high). The module is using a modified amp tone stack which allows for heavy mid scooping. This box does a good job in both blues and Rock 'n' Roll.

    MagnaVibe
    A vibrato is (and don't confuse this with a tremolo) frequency modulation, similar to when you move the string up and down, changing its pitch. This vibrato allows you to select a rate between 0 and 10 Hz, as well as a general depth. A knob for "delay" allows the vibrato to kick in a little bit after you pluck the string, making it more transparent when you play fast. Two modes are available, an "standard digital" one, and emulation of a certain "magnetic" stereo amp.

    Tremolo
    A tremolo is (and don't confuse this with a vibrato) amplitude modulation. This effect "rotates" the volume at the range of 0-10 Hz. Two variants are included, the classic "digital" tremolo (multiplying the signal with a sine) and the even more classic "tube bias" tremolo (adding a sine to the bias of a tube, partly saturating the signal). The tube bias variant adds a natural overtones clarity. The digital variant can adjust the up / down slope of the transition, going from soft to pulsing.

    Wow-Wah!
    A Wah pedal is a low-, high-, or band pass filter with adjustable frequency. At the point of cut off, there is a peak with adjustable resonance, making the guitar sound "waaaoooowwwoooaaa". The resonance has similarities with the human mouth, hence the name. The frequency can be controlled either by a midi pedal (or the main knob) or by automatic rotation. The resonance can range between any 2 frequencies of your choice. An extra knob for addition of overtones can give the guitar a clearer tone.

    BassBox
    This is a distortion pedal with a slightly different harmonic spectrum. The even harmonics are stronger than the odd, making the distortion very smooth, bordeline "clean". A second gain knob allow ordinary diode clipping, being somewhat asymmetrical. This module can be used for adding just a little bit of color and spice to the sound. Great for bass due to the harmonic spectrum.

    ShutUp Sch-1b, Noise Gate
    A noise gate is a simple way to get rid of noise in the signal. The traditional way such an effect works is lowering the volume of the signal when the signal itself becomes very weak (as it is mostly then you can hear the noise). The ShutUp Sch-1b is different in two ways
    This noise gate is not "either closed or opened", but is sliding smoothly in between the two. Secondly, Sch-1b does not affect the actual "volume" but is continuously changing the filter parameters of an intelligent filter circuit. You may very well notice that the noise gate is half-closed when playing softly. Compared to traditional noise gates this has the impression of being perfectly responsive. The noise gate has 4 separate bands, where as the fourth has an adjustable frequency.

    Ph2 Phaser
    Phasing works by mixing the original signal with one that is phase shifted. The phase is shifted by an LFO which frequency and depth can be controlled. This phaser has a feedback and width control for stereo effects.

    Effects

    8Q
    8 band parametric filter with adjustable frequency, gain, Q. It comes in the types: High shelf, low shelf, high pass, low pass, band pass, notch and peak. Each band can be either a 1st order or second order IIR filter. Please note that "first order" filters cannot represent eq, band pass or notch curves.

    3Q
    Triple parametric filters with adjustable frequency, gain, Q. It comes in the types: High shelf, low shelf, high pass, low pass, band pass, notch and peak. Please note that "first order" filters cannot represent eq, band pass or notch curves.

    Stereo Reverb R1
    Stereo reverb designed to be placed last in the chain to give ambience or width to the result. Adjustable echo, pre-delay, room size. 3 filters can be programmed to shape the character of the wet part.

    Stereo Reverb R2
    Stereo reverb designed to be placed last in the chain to give ambience or width to the result. Adjustable pre-delay, room size. 3 filters can be programmed to shape the character of the wet part. This reverb is thicker than Reverb R1; it has also different default filter parameters.

    Stereo widening effects
    A module with combined ambience, stereo widening and exciter / enhancer. This module gives your sound a wider, fuller sound with more presence. The enhancer is working on the principle of delaying lower frequencies to allow the higher frequencies to come first, giving the sound a touch of presence and clarity. Because of the delay, the enhancer may appear to add "distance" to the sound. You can blend the enhancement with the mix control. The widening effects applies a rotating phase distortion to each channel and in combination with the ambience component you can place your audio in a rich virtual room.

    Channel Delay
    A module which can delay each channel 0-100 ms independently. Each channel can be adjusted +-16dB. Using the ambiance option, the module acts as if the time delay represent a distance in a room. The further away from the source a channel is, the less high frequencies and less volume it has.

    VST host module
    This module does not provide any effect or signal processing in itself, but simply allows you to load a 3rd party VST plug-in and run it as if it was a regular ReValver Mk II module. This allows you to use your favorite plug-in inside of the ReValver Mk II system. VST Plug-In Technology by Steinberg.

    CS3 tube compressor
    A compressor is used to even out the volume so that the lower levels do not completely disappear. It would make any distortion module distort for longer. It is believed that a tube compressor sounds warmer than a a solid state variant. This is due to the slight saturation of the tubes, and the transformer adding a subtle touch of "crunch". By rolling off some bass on the side chain, the compressor do not trigger as easily on lower frequencies, which effects the dynamics.

    CS2 compressor
    A compressor is used to even out the volume so that the lower levels do not completely disappear. It would make any distortion module distort for longer.

    Gr8 Graphical Equalizer
    Simple 8 band graphical equalizer with frequency bands strategically placed for bass and guitar. The bands can be adjusted manually by pressing the "T" button. Pressing "R" will reset the band.

    C-Verb

    Utility Functions

    Signal splitter
    The signal splitter divides the signal into 2 streams, each running in parallel using their own set of modules. In the "signal merge" module, these two streams are mixed into 1 again. It is only possible to use the signal splitter once.

    Frequency Analyzer
    The frequency analyzer can scan the audio in real time and present the frequency content on a live display. The update speed is can be switched between 50 ms and 500 ms. The analyzer can create up to 3 snapshots and overlay them over each other. By hovering over the graph with the mouse you get an accurate readout of that position. The anti-aliased display yields a very accurate picture.

    Levels
    A utility module to insert where ever you wish to monitor or change the volume levels. Monitors left + right channel. This module has a volume adjust and "Learn" button to automatically adjust level to 0dB.

    Stereo Levels Adjust
    Same as "Levels" module, but with a control knob for each channel. A utility module to insert where ever you wish to monitor or change the volume levels. Monitor left + right channel. This module has a volume adjust and "Learn" button to automatically adjust level to 0dB.

    Tuner
    Guitar tuner with two simultaneous displays, needle & strobe. With anti-aliased graphics, this tuner displays your tuning with unbelievable accuracy. The "A" is adjustable between 425Hz and 455Hz. Never go out of tune again.

    Simul-Tune
    This is not one but 6 independent tuners running at the same time. Each channel is tuning strictly against a preset tone. That way, one can always be sure the tone has "triggered". The tuning is presented in strobe form and represent the total tuning error for that channel. (5 of the 6 channels will probably display as wildly out of tune at any given time.) The brightness of the strobe indicate the confidence level of a frequency in that particular range. (I.e. dark display = not even close.)

    One Tone Stack
    This module only contains one tone stack. The module has "Bass", "Mid" and "Treble" knobs to adjust the filter aspects of any of the included tone stacks of ReValver Mk II. (The Foxy tone stack does not use the "mid" knob.)

    One Triode Tube
    This module only contains one single triode tube with no filters, and with level adjustment before and after. Using a couple of these and you could probably build an amp yourself.

    Comments about Peavey ReValver MK III Amp Modeling Software Plug-In:

    Incredibly realistic! The warmth of tube with all the tediousness. That's right... be prepared to work your tushy off for that "sweet signature sound". It is more possible than ever to do so with this giant. Ran this through my two tens and two twelves via PC and outboard mixer... WOW! The downside, (albeit minimal considering the product); I wouldn't use it EVER for direct recording. For those of you who record guitar, you already know that the best sound comes from adding plug-ins and effects to the dry recording. This awesome product gives you limitless possibilities to do so. Not really for acoustic guitars... kind of short changed there. Got this as the Stupid Deal of the Day... would never have paid full price for it.

          Anyone saying this amp sim is less than awesome is pretty much out to lunch. I've been recording guitars for 17 years now, and as long as you know what you're doing, this is BY FAR the best sounding software amp on the market. I have music on television right now featuring Revalver. Get yourself some good impulse responses for the Recabinet and tweak... This thing KILLS for metal! There are also samples all over the internet with sounds so you can hear for yourself.

          Poor quality. I have uninstalled it and will not use it.

          By Glenn-Abk3X

          from California

          Comments about Peavey ReValver MK III Amp Modeling Software Plug-In:

          For me, this was a waste of money. There are far better options out there.
          The user interface is clunky. Seems to have been developed by a computer nerd who hasn't spent a whole lot of time actually recording or performing. Customizing or even navigating to settings should be a whole lot easier and intuitive. See Pod Farm for an example of a user interface done right.
          In my opinion, this software has inexcusably poor quality.

          Very simple functions resulted in hung screens. A screen that stayed displayed even after the plugin was removed from the track!! (environment: PTLE, RTAS)
          No value. I have uninstalled this software, and will not use it.

          Still trying to find "the pleasant sound"

          Comments about Peavey ReValver MK III Amp Modeling Software Plug-In:

          I have difficulty understanding who this product is intended to please, but I am sure there are many such high gain tube fans out there.

          For me, I seek a need palet of guitar sound for recording with DI. There is more for me to try out in this package, but I am losing my patience.

          I wish the apparently talented product designers would focus on "nice sounds" rather than modeling old high grain tube amps, but that is me and my taste.
          I do not wish to be unfair.
          Access to models of all of the high gain, rocker, heavy metal, heavy blues, blow your brains out sounds. I am not an expert in vintage and ancient tube amps and old amplificant equipment, but according to other users and reviews, software gives accurate reproduction. Many models. Many variations. Many knobs. A very long rack is possible.
          Here is the issue. If that is the sound you want, this I suspect that this is the product you want. If you are looking for soft, detailed and melodic sound, this may not be the correct product for you. As for me, I want that differentiated melodic sound, and I am having a lot of trouble finding it.

          I had difficulty using this product with my Mac and Logic. One of the Peavy product developers and their forum help line helped me resolve the problem by deleting one of the presents.

          I also have an issue with two settings for the simulation, a recording quality with very high processor demand, and a performance grade simulation. A bit of a challenge changing between the two. Also, the high processor demanding simulation is so demanding that it seems to consistently bring error messages on my Mac dual Xeon quad core processors, hard to believe!

          I am still exploring this program, but losing enthusiasm and hope of finding the sound I seek. I seem to revert to bundled amp simulators in my DAW, with better success, for my particular tasts.

          It often seems to be that one modeler in this module is louder and with more shirll gain than the previous one. And yes, I tried to reduce the gain and crunch settings, only to find that my sound completely goes away before I get the gentler sound I seek.
          I you want a high gain, aggressive and vintage tube amp, to rock your brains out and blow up your speakers up, this is the product for you.

          For the rest of you, I am still experimenting and trying to find the sound I seek.

          Very Realistic

          Comments about Peavey ReValver MK III Amp Modeling Software Plug-In:

          ReValver models not just Peavey but Mesa Boogie, Marshall, Fender, etc. amps.This is the best software modeler by far. I've tried the others, but nothing else comes close. Some more amp models would be nice, but the ones included will cover just about any style.A trick I learned is that the "soft clip" parameter within the tube models can make the tones more organic and realistic. You can alter many component values in the amp circuit like resistors and capacitors to change the sound to your liking, or you can just dial in a tone using the front panel controls.If you have played tube amps you know that the dynamic response is just as important as the sound. ReValver doesn't disappoint. WHEN PROPERLY ADJUSTED this software rocks. The distortion can be adjusted so there is no "fizz", only a smooth, organic distortion that changes from distorted to clean seamlessly with changing playing dynamics and note decay.I've owned and played an AXE-FX Ultra for 2 years, and ReValver is the only amp modeler (software or hardware) that comes close.

          I would not recommend this product to anyone. While it does have some decent tones, the product has the worst support I have ever seen. Zero updates since release, and numerous bugs that have never been fixed.

          from The land with only bluegrass and bad metal bands

          Comments about Peavey ReValver MK III Amp Modeling Software Plug-In:

          I have never really thought of peavey as being anything other than average in the audio world. I must admit, that after I have been messing with this software I can not believe the sounds that are coming out of my computer.It can run as a standalone application, or as a vst in a host (Sonar, Cubase, Etc.). My only problem with the way the program works it that audio can't be directed from the standalone app to the vst host. No biggie for most though.The interface is amazingly easy to use. Everything has a box that will pop up and explain the function if you leave your cursor over it. It is amazingly user friendly.
