Pittsburgh Modular has introduced the Verbtronic Eurorack reverb module.
According to Pittsburgh, ‘The Verbtronic digital reverb module generates spaces large enough to overwhelm sounds and smear the audio spectrum with a wash of relentless reflections and echoes, building a tidal wave of never-ending feedback.’
They add, ‘We did not design the Verbtronic to mimic the real world; instead we have created a reverb full of lush, artificial spaces that blend perfectly with the electronic sounds of modular synthesis.’
The Verbtronic controls offer a full palette of reverberation effects.
- Tonal Tilt shifts the frequency emphasis from low and dark to high and bright, acting as a tone control for the reverberated signal.
- The Feedback knob sends a variable portion of the output signal back into the input, creating results similar to simultaneously adjusting both reverb density and decay time.
- The Verbtronic voltage controlled Mode switch flips between two unique reverbs: Verb mode is a shorter, more natural sounding reverb, perfect for augmenting leads and more fragile sounds; and Tronic mode creates a much larger, synthetic sounding reverb.
- The voltage controlled Output Mix knob smoothly shifts between the dry input signal and 100% reverb.
Here are the official audio demos for Verbtronic:
