The t.c. electronic models I mentioned use a reverb technique called "point-source" - the main character is the early reflections and first echo circulants, both based on the stereo placement of the source send.portland wrote:Thanks, that's good to know. I've been thinking of a Powercore Express if I want a reverb upgrade. I generally like reverbs that are either very realistic or so unrealistic they don't even necessarily resemble spaces anymore (and Reaktor covers the latter).
This is in opposition to "diffuse cloud" reverbs, such as Lexicon - where the main character is from the RT60 tail, usually with some degree of internal modulation.
My sense of the two (well, I used to have a M3000 and M-One (not XL) - now I have just the M3000) is that the sound is near-identical. The real difference between the two is the UI and build quality. The M3000 is solid, the M-One, not so much. I've heard an anecdotal report from a t.c. rep who said the M-One uses the same VSS3 algo as the M3000.chordmemories wrote:Also, has anyone had a chance to compare the M3000 to the M One XL? Is it just a matter of stepping down in terms of conversion quality and processing power (ie tails are not as smooth/natural?) or is there more? RTFM I know but...
I own every reverb you just listed but I don't own, nor do I have any experience with, the Dynacord DRP20, sorry.chordmemories wrote:Aeon I was wondering if you could place the Dynacord DRP20 in context with other reverbs? In looking around I have only found opinions on whether it is good or not, without much comparison. Would you place it close to the SRV-330, R7/DPS-V77, Rumour, M3000, Eventide or Lex Model 300?
This is the first I have heard of this, and reports on Gearslutz from those with experience suggest otherwise. I don't know for sure.madtheory wrote:The Dynacord reverb is exactly the same as the Sony, according to Roger Nichols. Sony bought the algorithm from them IIRC.
I know Sony had licensing deals with Ibanez back in the day as it concerns the shared algos of the Sony MUR-201 and Ibanez SDR1000 and 1000+.
