Enhance any sound with a vibrant, slappy, squelchy spring reverb that sounds so real, you’d swear you could kick it yourself.
The bouncy “boing” of a spring reverb has brought joy, soul, and atmosphere to countless records since the technology was devised in the 30s. Now Rev SPRING-636 will add that authentic, physical tone to your DAW.
VIBRANT SPRING TANKS
Multiple spring reverb units in one fantastic, character-packed software effect
The unrivaled sound of a physical spring resonating with your music
A super-crunchy, musical input that lets you drive it hard for extra distorted tone.
Originally invented to add some “space” to the sound of Hammond Organs way back in the 30s, the reverb is a relatively simple design of a suspended spring inside a tank. The sound of the instrument is passed through the spring, and picked up again, blended into the original sound, and that’s it!
For the core unit, we based our software reverb on the legendary Grampian 636 spring reverb. The original 636 was the go-to reverb of The Who’s Pete Townshend, of legendary dub producer Lee Scratch Perry, and a cornerstone of reggae and ska music.
The great thing about spring reverbs, and one of the reasons they have been so popular for the last 90 years, is that every one of them seems to have a unique tonal character. Some are bright, some zap, some zing, and poing, and some boing, but they all have their uses. This is one of the reasons we’ve included many different “spring tank” models in Rev SPRING-636: you can find the one that suits your music best.
Thanks to the power of our TAE® and Phi® modelling technologies, we’ve been able to recreate everything that made the 636, and spring reverbs in general, so very special. True Analog Emulation® handles the electronic side, analyzing and accurately modelling the way the circuitry works, and how it responds to various audio signals. Phi® lets us study the physical nature of the reverb, how the spring reacts, how the tank’s resonance changes the sound.
It’s this marriage of audio techniques and modelling technology that let us create the best-sounding software spring reverb ever heard.
