Post by studio460 » Tue Apr 06, 2021 7:18 pm

Yup! Finally a thread to show off your insane collection of hardware reverb modules, pedals, desktop, and rack-gear *(except plug-ins). Here's my humble list:

Eurorack:

• 2hp Verb.
• Tiptop ZVERB.
• Synthesis Technology E520 Hyperion (shimmer reverb).
• Grayscale Supercell (Oliverb).

Pedals:

• Eventide Blackhole.
• Source Audio Collider.
• Mooer Ocean Machine.

Rack:

• TC Electronic G-Major/1, G-Major/2.
• Peavey Dual DeltaFex.
• Alesis MIDIVerb II.

Curious to know everyone else's insane lists of fancy hardware 'verbs!

Nice collection, curious about those other two pedals you have (aside from the Eventide). Do you integrate the pedals with Euro, too?

I’ve got a short list of stuff:

Eurorack:
Monsoon (oliverb)
FX Aid XL

Gear:
Kork km2 kaoss mixer
Korg NTS-1

Not strictly’verb, but kinda in the ballpark:
Mimeophon
Beads

Thanks! But again, it's a very humble list compared to many here. I just had a big discussion (with myself!) about your question in the end-of-chain thread. I bought the Blackhole (I know you asked about the other pedal—I'll get to that), and the Collider specifically to use with my modular but just decided (yesterday, in fact), that I prefer to have all my modular effects in-rack.

Not necessarily because they accept CV (I don't really use CV for reverb-effects), but because it's so much easier and mainly because I don't have any desk-space by my modular stuff. Even with my two brand-new Mazzatron patchbays (which are pretty slick), you just can't beat the convenience/form-factor of modular effects.

But now the Mazzatrons are free to integrate my guitar multi-effects units (e.g., G-Majors) into my modular. Not sure why these aren't more popular for use other than guitar. They have incredibly wild-sounding presets (e.g., Skysynth) programmed into their rack-strength DSPs, so meldling them (finally!) with my modular will be an interesting voyage.

So all of my pedals are now paired with fixed-architecture synths—and I love it! Never really been big on pedals. Been playing guitar since high school and the only guitar-pedal I ever really bought over the last decades is a Dunlop MC404 dual-Fasel wah (which is awesome!).

I bought the Tiptop ZVERB/ECHOZ to sit in the rack, right next to the stuff they'll be reverbing/echoing. It seems EVERYTHING sounds better with reverb, plus I have a ton of voices, many of which I use concurrently, so I plan to have multiple reverb-modules.

The Mooer Ocean Machine I bought a few years ago—this time, specifically for my keyboarded synths. It sounds pretty good, but it's not true-stereo, so I've had mixed feelings about it. My main composing board is a Korg Kronos Platinum-88, so it'll probably go there, especially for putting reverb on pianos (the Kronos' built-in reverb just isn't "enough").

Z-DSP
Which Z-DSP? I think the old school ones look badass. I missed out on a super-deal on one here in the forum—an OG Z-DSP plus like four cards for something like $250. Others on Reverb are selling their used Z-DSPs at near-new prices, so I just went with the new Tiptop compact ones. Actually, really happy for the space-savings and from the demos, I think they sound great.

Never got into those (mainly out of just ignorance over which ones are the best bang-for-the-buck), but I only hear great things about them! Which ones, exactly?

Wow! I bet that sounded interesting! That's actually a very interesting list—I mean, I think it's just as valuable to know which ones you don't have anymore. In fact, I think a "reverbs you no longer have because . . . " thread would be equally informative. On that list would be my Boss RE20 (too metallic, shallow, ungood-sounding). Gotta get rid of that one someday.

In my case, the usual answer for that is software plugins :mrgreen:

Even the springs -- I A/B'd the Field Kit FX with u-he Twangstrom, and managed to tweak the plugin to the point where I couldn't tell the difference.

Others on Reverb are selling their used Z-DSPs at near-new prices, so I just went with the new Tiptop compact ones. Actually, really happy for the space-savings and from the demos, I think they sound great.
I have one of the newer ones, they made some improvements in the newer version, so I think that's why people are selling the older ones for significantly less:

"the Z-DSP got an all new design of its analog circuitry, contributing to a lower noise signal path, clearer sound of the entire frequency range, lower distortion and better immunity to noise emitted by other modules sharing the same power supply. A new analog dry/wet circuit has been implemented to remove the 3db gain drop when the mix knob passes through the center of the dial making the use of this function more practical in a live application. A reverse polarity protection has been added as well."

I really like the Valhalla Reverb, and I also like the Spring Waves card. Haven't really gotten around to spending much time with other cards yet. They're wide but not deep, so I've mounted 2 of them on the wall where the width isn't really an issue.

Probably the cheapest "just try em!" ones are the MPX-1 and MPX-100

I think you can grab an MPX-100 for around $50 presently. They will be $300 in no time, my guess. (Reverb shows their prices going up) - I have two MPX-100s, which I just love for the dials. It's a preset reverb but there's an adjustment dial on each of the settings which is VERY flexible, is stereo i/o, and has a footswitch and midi. It's just a lovely room reverb with great delays and pitch shifting.

Also have the MPX-1 - much more expansive, can get into Eventide territory with the menu, but the menu itself makes it less playable than the instantly tweakable MPX-100. Only thing to mention on Lexicons is many of them have a soldered battery to the board, so if you get one, inspect it and change out the battery with a user-replaceable battery holder for a regular nickel battery. Any tech should be able to do it for under $40 if you can't yourself.

There are other rackmount Lexicons with nice sliders and other features. I keep my MPX-1 stuck in one built room that I made for it, which I've saved, that's an almost perfect ambience of a small wood interior - so reflective and soft in reverb to just sound like a normal room. That's a good test of a reverb, how can it do plain stuff like carpet damper or wood reflections. It just adds a perfect amount of air boost to whatever you're recording.

OK...

Main Rack - https://www.modulargrid.net/e/racks/view/1249433

Blackhole DSP 2
Monsoon
A119 Spring reverb - with both a medium and a large tank available
A few via the Disting

Percrack - https://www.modulargrid.net/e/racks/view/1320853

Black Hole DSP
Some reverbs I can use via the Endorphin.es BLCK_NOIR module which are pretty good
A few more via the other Disting

Outboard:

A unique Snoopy Theme spring reverb pedal made by some guy who makes pedals for some well know Americana guitarist - can't recall which one though! (seriously - sound lovely too!)

The ones in the Zoom MS-70 which is a new addition but I'm pretty impressed by given the price of the thing

Seriously considering a Big Sky for the future since I can use it with CV (via expression) and have MIDI cc control - which I currently do with a Mobius pedal I have from Strymon and works a treat :)

Eurorack:
-Monsoon
-2x FX Aid XL
-2x Intellijel Multi FX 1U
-Flame FX 16 CV
-Disting mk4 and EX, although these should count as algo instead of hardware

19" current:
-Alesis Akira
-Sony DPS V55m
-Sony DPS V77
-TC M350
-Roland SRV 3030d

dead, traded, stolen, gone whatever way...
-Quantec QRS
-B. Virtualizer 1000
-Lexicon Alex
-Lexicon MPX 1 or 5, not sure (traded dud, never worked)
-Lexicon MPX 200
-Zoom 1201+1204
-racked spring reverb of unknown origin, seemingly butchered from some old guitar amp
-plastic stompbox reverb, funny shape like danelectro, but without any reckognizable logo

I think that was all.

edit: no, it wasn't. Forgot the Kurzweil Rumour that's still in one of the racks. :doh:
