Rev PLATE-140 - General Questions

plate
Do you have questions about Rev PLATE-140?
You will likely find an answer here:

Plate reverbs are among the most used reverb types in the music industry.
It sounded smoother and more natural than the spring reverb, and at the same time didn't demand a dedicated space, like the echo chamber.
filtermodes
As is implied by the name, plates are metal sheets that are hanging in cases, suspended in a way that allows the plate to vibrate well.
The plate is excited by a signal it gets from a transducer, and then vibrates according to that signal. The vibrations are captured elsewhere in the plate by two contact microphones, creating a stereo reverberation effect.

Power

Turn the unit ON or OFF.
Unlike the blend control, this control fully bypasses the unit to avoid any processing of the signal.

Model

This switch lets you pick three different plate models for further versatility.

Blend

Blends between the preamped signal and the reverberated signal. This lets you process audio with the tube preamp only.

Drive

Adjusts the gain of the input signal fed into the valve preamp. Push it harder to add some beautiful vacuum colored saturation.

Decay

Adjusts the reverberation time. The longer the decay, the longer the reverb tails will be.

Width

Controls the stereo wideness of the reverberated signal, mono on the left and stereo on the right.
filtermodes

Pre Delay

Adds a delay to the input signal to add a distance feel and create echoed reverberations.

Pre Filter

Shapes the input signal before reverberation with a multi mode resonant filter.

Modulation

Lets you add some chorus or the input or on the reverberated signal.

Post Equalizer

Lets you tame or boost the frequencies of your reverb tails with two shelves.
