Room Reverb

BigSky MX Room algorithms create intimate environments ranging from well-tuned studio ambience to larger nightclub acoustics. The Tone knob, Diffusion, and Low End parameters adjust the damping and scattering effects of room materials, furniture, and people.

Hall Reverb

Diffused reflections and slower-building density are the hallmarks of this beautiful and versatile reverb. The Concert size is well-balanced, spacious, and warm, while the Arena size is huge, enveloping, and booming. The Mid parameter allows for precise EQ tailoring of the reverberated sound.

Chamber Reverb

A generous and dense medium room-sized reverberation with excellent focus and clarity. The selectable Color options capture the effect of speakers and mics used in the chamber recording process.

Plate Reverb

The Plate is a rich, fast-building reverb that creates depth without early reflection cues to a specific environment. The Tone knob and Low End parameter are simple but powerful frequency-shaping tools

Spring Reverb

The standalone spring tank became a staple of surf and spaghetti western music that developed in the ‘60s. The Spring reverb allows for complete customization from warm and mellow to splashy and dripping with its Tone and Mix Controls, Dwell parameter, and selectable number of springs.

Impulse Reverb

This convolution reverb utilizes Impulse Response (IR) files to create mathematically perfect recreations of recorded spaces. A variety of IRs is included, selectable from the Impulse menu. The Impulse reverb can be shaped and customized even further using the provided parameters. Optionally, load your own reverb IRs using the free Strymon Nixie 2 app

Cloud Reverb

A gorgeously big, ambient reverb that draws from techniques developed in the late ‘70s. Using processing power not dreamed of in those days, the Cloud reverb obscures the distinction between reality and fantasy.

Shimmer Reverb

Two tunable voices add pitch-shifted tones to the reverberated signal, for resplendent, unearthly ambience. The Amount and Feedback parameters allow for a range of shimmer effects from laid-back and subtle to full-blown majestic splendor.

Bloom Reverb

In the ‘90s, more diffusion blocks were added to reverbs to smooth out the sound. A side effect of this was the tendency of the reverbs to have a slowly building envelope that “bloomed,” resulting in big ambient reverbs that sit nicely with the dry signal even at high Mix levels. The Bloom reverb features a bloom generating section that feeds into a 
traditional reverb tank, with a unique Feedback parameter that expands the possibilities exponentially.

Chorale Reverb

A vocal choir accompanies your music. Choose vowel ranges and intensities to customize the choir as it sings in venues that vary with the Decay knob. As the Modulation is increased, the choir becomes alive with a multitude of voices.

Magneto Reverb

More than just a reverb, Magneto is also capable of some old-school tape delay, slapback, and patterned repeats. The Magneto reverb sets up a multi-head echo with all heads on, while the Pre-Delay knob adds feedback. The Diffusion parameter adds a new dimension of ambience, smearing the response of the heads and blurring the line between delay and reverb.

Nonlinear Reverb

A variety of physics-defying reverb shapes are available for special effects and unique textures. Choose from three “backward” shapes (Swoosh, Reverse, and Ramp), employ a Gate, add tremolo (via the Chop parameter) and more. Feedback control (Pre-Delay knob), Decay, and Diffusion parameters allow for a vast array of time-warped possibilities.
