Manufacturer's ID: RV-500

What we say:

BOSS's expansive sounding RV-500 is a real step up for floor effects in term of sheer quality of sound. With 32-bit conversation and 96kHz processing, it's boasting some pretty much unheard of specs.

There are 21 Reverb algorithms to choose form here, all available with a fully-featured delay to go along with it! The reverbs are super-lush and detailed. You can decide whether you want 'tails' on them when you change patches and yo can save your favourite settings to well over 200 memory locations. This is one hi-fi pedal!

You also have MIDI, USB and expression pedal connectivity and Stereo outs to give magnificence to your halls, chambers, ducking, plate and various other great 'verbs.

Specification

Twelve modes and 21 newly developed reverb algorithms deliver a huge range of textures. And thanks to the RV-500’s high-octane DSP, you can access a full-featured digital delay along with every reverb patch, and even run two reverb patches at once! Adding in MIDI I/O, support for external footswitch/expression control, and USB for connection to the free RV-500 Editor/Librarian software, the RV-500 is simply the most advanced reverb pedal available, bar none.

Twelve Modes and 21 Unique Reverb Types

Inside the RV-500 are 21 top-quality reverb algorithms that enable you to shape any kind of space you can imagine. Every algorithm has been newly developed specifically for this pedal, leveraging BOSS’s decades of expertise in advanced reverb design. Also included are all-new recreations of the RE-201 Space Echo and SRV-2000 Digital Reverb, two revered Roland classics from the ‘70s and ‘80s.

Simultaneous Reverbs and Independent Digital Delay

The pedal’s Dual mode provides two independent reverbs at once; you can feed them both with a full-range input, or with divided frequency ranges on each input to build rich, multi-range sounds. And when you employ A/B Simul mode, you can use any two RV-500 reverb patches at the same time, with your choice of series or parallel connection order and mixed or split A/B output. What’s more, each patch also includes a digital delay with a full set of parameters including modulation and EQ, plus the ability to set the reverb and delay effects for series or parallel operation on a per-patch basis.

Extraordinary Sound

The RV-500 features 32-bit/96 kHz AD/DA, exceeding all industry standards for pedal-based effects. All internal processing is 32-bit floating point and runs at a 96 kHz sampling rate as well, delivering pristine sonic quality that goes beyond the highest-level digital processors used in top pro studios. If you wish, you can run your analog dry tone straight through so it’s completely untouched with digital processing. You’re also able to select true-bypass or buffered-bypass operation to suit the needs of your setup.

Advanced Interface, Intuitive Operation

The RV-500 is equipped with a large LCD that clearly shows the patch name, delay time, and other vital performance information. And via USB, you can connect with the free RV-500 Editor/Librarian on your computer for remote editing, patch backup, and more.

Intensive Real-Time Control

By default, the A, B, and TAP/CTL switches offer intuitive control for patch/bank selection and bypass, plus tap tempo and real-time adjustment of various effect parameters. If you like, the switches can be customized to access three different reverbs patches, A/B Simul mode, and other functions. MIDI I/O opens the door to even more creative possibilities, offering deep control options with advanced setups.

Customer reviews

Overall Rating 4 (1 reviews)

Very good for adding natural sounding & really high-quality reverbs to guitar, piano, vocals etc but I bought the unit mainly for use with a synthesizer/sampler for making ambient music. I found the reverbs didn't have enough depth for this & the max 10 second decay time was much too short. So great for "regular" use, not so great for getting creative.
