New products from McDSP – Revolver and Project Studio

Revolver is a high-powered convolution reverb that drives like no other, providing total impulse response sculpt-ability, dedicated and routable EQ, two syncable delay lines, and specialized stereo imaging for unprecedented control. With literally hundreds of sounds from rare holy grail out of production reverbs and acoustic spaces, Revolver provides the most compelling impulse library to date. Also included is a complete tool set to shoot your own rooms and gear. Any acoustic space, outboard gear, or signal path can be modeled in a few minutes with Revolver and the Revolver analysis tools.

The Revolver plug-In uses convolution to extract and replicate acoustic spaces and other equipment exactly. It combines this extraordinary processing power with the flexibility only found in ultra high end outboard reverbs.

Revolver has two bands of dedicated shelving EQ and three additional bands of routable EQ. It’s routing system has eighteen different possible EQ insert combinations, and two programmable delay lines with five different possible insert combinations. The delay lines are each 3 seconds long and can be panned and synced to MIDI beat clock independently for a variety of tempo-based effects. Additionally, all parameter adjustments are heard immediately, and the outputs are not muted during any control updates.
