Selecting a type of reverb

The Reverb Type function allows you to select the type of reverb that is applied to all input channels. The decay time (Time) and balance (Bal) are adjustable. Balance controls the ratio of early-to-late reflections.

      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
      Creates the ambience of an extremely large space. Features adjustable time and balance (ratio of early/later reflections) parameters. A unique and interesting reverb effect.
  3. Rotate the Type button to scroll through the reverb list and highlight the desired reverb type.
  4. Press the Type button to select.
  5. (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.
  6. (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).

Adding reverb
