      Small
      Creates the ambience of a small-sized space. Features adjustable time and balance (ratio of early/later reflections) parameters. Works well with guitars, horns, percussion instruments, and vocals.
      Medium
      Creates the ambience of a medium-sized space. Features adjustable time and balance (ratio of early/later reflections) parameters. Works well with guitars, horns, percussion instruments, and vocals.
      Large
      Creates the ambience of a large-sized space. Features adjustable time and balance (ratio of early/later reflections) parameters. Works well with guitars, horns, percussion instruments, and vocals.
      Cavern

  4. Rotate the Type button to scroll through the reverb list and highlight the desired reverb type.
  5. Press the Type button to select.
  6. (T4S/T8S only) Press the Balance button to select the Time Control
    Rotating the Time control controls the decay time of the selected reverb model from its minimum decay time to its maximum decay time. At 0%, the decay time will be at minimum and will simulate the smallest room size available to the currently selected reverb type. At 100%, the decay time will be at maximum and will simulate the largest room size available to the currently selected reverb type. Each reverb type has their own usable range of decay times that work best for the selected model type. The Reverb Decay parameter allows you to adjust the reverb time between the specific ranges that work best for the selected reverb model type.
  7. (T4S/T8S only) Press the Time control to switch to Bal. Rotate the Bal. control to adjust the early-to-late reflection ratio (0% = all early reflections, 100% = all late reflections).
Note
The Time settings are different from the T1 ToneMatch Audio Engine. There are no direct mappings of the time values in the T1 to the T4S/T8S because they use different units of measure.
If you are trying to get the same results as you had with a T1 ToneMatch® Audio Engine make sure you have Firmware version 1.1.4 or later. Fine tune the settings by ear.
