Metasonix Intros Euro Vacuum-Tube Reverb Module

metasonix-vacuum-tube-reverbMetasonix has introduced a new Eurorack module that, after the Metasonix Fucking Fucker, the Assblaster and the Scrotum Smasher, seems almost wholesome.

The R-56 Vacuum Tube Reverb uses two 9-pin miniature triode-pentodes, type 12CT8. The design is optimized for maximum sound quality and minimum noise and hum. It is presently the only vacuum-tube spring reverb usable in a Euro-rack modular synthesizer. Continue reading

Strymon BigSky Reverb Offers Immersive Sound

The Strymon BigSky Reverb is a new hardware effects pedal designed to create immersive ‘lush, glorious, radiant reverbs’.

Here’s what they have to say about the BigSky Reverb:

Using the fundamentals of acoustical science as our beacon, we carefully studied and scientifically analyzed reverb technology from the past fifty years. We faithfully captured the essence of these classic sounds, and forged ahead to dream up our vision of reverbs from the future.

Feel the mechanical tension of the Spring reverbs. Hear the floating particles of the Cloud machine. Defy the laws of physics with the Nonlinear reverbs. Unleash the multi-head reverberations of the Magneto machine. BigSky gives you twelve studio-class reverb machines, each with simple yet powerful controls.

We knew we must take reverb to a whole new level. With careful attention to detail, innovative analog circuitry design, an insanely powerful SHARC processor, and the utilization of top-shelf components, we’ve developed a reverb pedal that fits on your pedal board yet has better audio quality than many rack reverb units. This fusion of science with art has just one goal. To provide you with the most musically inspirational reverb experiences possible.
