I’ve been on a little reverb kick these days. I’m guessing it’s coinciding with my increased listening to Explosions in the Sky as of late. I’m super excited to see these guys in a few weeks here and that is a band that does it right. Another band that I’ve mentioned before that uses reverb really well (again, my opinion) is Foals. Good stuff.
Anyways, I came across an interesting video showing Jake Cinninger of Umphrey’s McGee taking a Soundblox 2 Dimension Reverb for a little test drive. The Soundblox 2 series is great change in my opinion to the original Soundblox. They’re smaller for one, and the housing is cast aluminum. The original Soundblox were made with aÂ plastic enclosure.
The Soundblox 2 Dimension reverb has 12 styles of reverb, which include 6 reflectivity styles of verb, two plate, two spring, a modulation reverb and an echo. You can adjust wet/dry mix, time/resonance, bass, treble, pre-delay, diffusion, output level, modulation rate and modulation depth. You can also include a Source Audio Dual Expression pedal (I really liked the use of the expression pedal in the video below) or MIDI. The pedal uses a 56 bit Digital Signal Processor (DSP) and uses 9 volt power.
