BOSS RV-500 Reverb

BOSS

collapse expand iconDescription

The BOSS RV-500 Reverb features 32-bit/96kHz AD/DA, deep programmability and advanced features. It offers musicians unlimited creative capabilities with cutting-edge BOSS technology.

The RV-500 features 12 modes and 21 reverb types, and all include sound-shaping parameters like modulation, ducking and EQ. On tap is everything from standard reverbs to shimmer, non-linear, fast decay, SFX and more, plus recreations of the classic Roland SRV-2000 and RE-201 Space Echo. Thanks to powerful DSP, players can access a full-featured digital delay with modulation along with every reverb, and even use two patches at once with Simul mode.

Free editor/librarian software is available for the RV-500, allowing users to edit sounds and organize patches on a computer via USB.
