    Reverb mostly, but still offering some effects chorus, flanger, phaser and tremolo ..

    UTILIZATION

    In two units, the control layout is perfect, rational and can move relatively quickly to escape the desired effects or change them. Flawless!

    SOUND QUALITY

    Some program I would describe the term "light" to enrich individual instruments are even more convincing. This is sometimes successful, but also, occasionally, to smile a little, digital reverbs have made enormous progress since 1985 the year of release of REV 7 ..

    SOUND QUALITY

    Some program I would describe the term "light" to enrich individual instruments are even more convincing. This is sometimes successful, but also, occasionally, to smile a little, digital reverbs have made enormous progress since 1985 the year of release of REV 7 .. The colors of the reverbs are still rather interesting, even if the authenticity is questionable. This is not the great sound of a reverb principal that said, the sound is still very convenient, and provides a color undeniable.
    effect "LIVE REFERENCE" in particular, the program simulates a local "living" of small dimensions, it enriches the harmonic instrumental sources using multiple reflections in natural character. The effect is certainly not spectacular, but its effectiveness is it more evident with acoustic sources.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I do not use very rarely, but I refuse to sell, mainly for some effects that I never managed to get with other machines .. It should be used preferably as an adjunct in making the split, it will be the best of itself. It should be stressed also that it is a silent operation, certainly not all, but still remarkable despite his advanced age, and she feared not at the difficult operating conditions ..

    The reverb has everything: love!

    Yamaha REV7Published on 02/03/11 at 07:26

    mainly the effects of reflections (some delays, I never use, I have dedicated devices for that).
    All effects are editable via the front panel.
    parameters are explicit and easy to access, at least for my personal logic, for example I find it much more intuitive than the Lexixon LXP15 (that may not be the same sound OK, but the Lex must turn the wheel 100 years and through 3 menus before editing a parameter! not here, called the parameter in question and edit it with the Up Down + / - and logic ..... Enter Yam 'what,!

    plus she has a numeric keypad to enter values directly!

    I do not use it, but it is controllable over MIDI, suited with a publisher that should be even easier!

    That's a r…

    I do not use it, but it is controllable over MIDI, suited with a publisher that should be even easier!

    That's a rack version, but a little high because of all the keys!

    is a digital reverb of course, I can not remember the characteristics of sampling, I'll have to watch it, but it was very honest at the time and in my opinion it still is, the sounds are not "artificial" as some effects on low-end .... (Obviously this is not a Lexicon 480 either!)

    XLR Connectors and Jacks + MIDI of course!

    stereo model!

    usable in Mono.


    UTILIZATION

    See above for ergonomics!

    the manual is clear enough in my taste

    Besides the selection MONO, there is especially a semi-parametric equalizer analog front, very useful for scouring the reverb without tying a strip by ex!

    I used to live above this reverb has the time (and it always happens on analog boards) this feature was really nice.



    SOUND QUALITY

    I agree with the advice above, I would add nothing more for now, good reverb, now it is better for less, but this much is ergonomic? ?

    if we put in the context of time and especially for the live, that's great, now and in the studio, I moderated a bit, so I put on average anyway "8" ....

    OVERALL OPINION

    Ola! Me it's been since at least 97 that I used ..... and it was not a young girl already!

    Yes I worked on TC Electronics, Lexicon, Yamaha ..... effects of internal concole digital live of course but also plugs ins more or less expensive ....

    and I concluded that this is a reverb reverb has to do everything that sounds very good, it would be ideal if you want to stay HARD to have a lexicon of proper invoice, REV7 Yam, a TC, and select "color" depending on what you want to treat ....

    I did not purchase one because I already have one and I agree very much!
    yes it is a seriously good machine but pay no more than 250 € as stated above!

    but it does its job really well!

    Yamaha REV7Published on 03/12/09 at 17:54
    The Yamaha REV7 is a digital reverb unit in the form of a rackable piece of outboard gear. It will take up two rack spaces and I believe it has both 1/4 inch and XLR connections, but I'm not 100% sure - I use this in a studio where the REV 7 was pre-mounted.

    UTILIZATION

    The configuration of the Yamaha REV 7 is the units worst quality, as it is pretty hard to follow. Like most early digital units, the menus are somewhat hard to follow. There are a lot of sections on this unit that I have never used because I'm not sure how they work. This being said, I usually use this to get a basic reverb sound.

There are a lot of sections on this unit that I have never used because I'm not sure how they work. This being said, I usually use this to get a basic reverb sound. It is easy to get your typical reverb sounds, but it can be somewhat hard to follow the deeper you go. I don't have a manual for this, but it would definitely be helpful when learning this machine.

    SOUND QUALITY

    The reverb effects from the Yamaha REV 7 digital reveb are good and usable, but I wouldn't call the effects great. I have used this unit on everything from lead vocals and back up vocals to guitar and have found it useful in a few different applications. While the reverb is useful and sound pretty good, it isn't the best outboard reverb I have used by any stretch and actually prefer a few different reverb plug-ins over this unit as well.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've been using the Yamaha REV 7 digital reverb for about four or five years and while it has served me well and has been useful, I don't use it all that much for a simple reason. While the sound quality of this unit is pretty good, unless an outboard reverb is top notch, I find myself using plug-ins more and more as I have found some reverb plug-ins sound better than digital reverbs like this one and are much easier to use. I suspect that sub par effect outboard gear like this will die out as plug-ins sound better and better.
