This video captures a ‘reverb shootout’ by Benge (Ben Edwards) that compares four vintage ‘big’ reverbs with a classic Oberheim Four Voice.
The reverbs, in order, are:
- Yamaha Rev1
- Lexicon 224
- Roland R880
- Eventide H3000
“I tried to get similar settings on them, so they all have decay times of around 10 seconds. You really need to listen on headphones to hear the subtle differences between them,” notes Benge. “I thought the mighty Oberheim Four Voice would be a good way of testing them. Which is your favorite?”
