NAMM 2019: Old Blood Noise Endeavors shows Reverse Delay and Reverb
Not content with having perhaps the spookiest name at NAMM, US effects maker Old Blood Noise Endeavors has joined forces with the US-based band Datachoir to come up with one of the more interesting new effects at the show – the Rêver, described as: ‘a uniquely collaborative combination of modulated reverb, delay and reverse effects’.
At its core, Rêver is built around two signal blocks. One side allows for a momentary or latching (all switchable via the toggle on the back) reverse of a signal, while the other block contains a modulated reverb that is fed into a delay. This lets the player switch from modulated ambience to reversed textures. OBNE says: ‘…seeing you put cool creative reverse fx on single stand-out melody lines or entire chord progressions, then returning to your lovely comforting sea of forward-moving ambient waves.
‘The toggle switch on the front allows the user to set the order of the blocks. With the reverse at the start and reverb and delay after, the sound tends to feel washier and the reverse is smoother. Switch the reverse to the end of the reverb and delay signal and you have a more pronounced and choppy, glitch-like reverse effect.
‘In addition, there’s an expression input on the back that lets you control the mix of the reverse on the fly, seeing you go from a subtle reverse effect in the background to a complete reversal of your signal, simply by rocking your foot’.
- Reverb section – controls for mix, modulation and reverb length
- Delay section – controls for volume, delay time, and feedback
- Reverse section – controls for latching or momentary operation and blend between reverse and dry
UK distributor ADG confirms the UK SSP will be £229.
