Death By Audio's description of the Death By Audio Reverberation Machine


The Reverberation Machine has one job, and that’s to make you sound incredible.

This synthetic atmosphere generator simulates amp-top spring units, or at higher levels, creates a blooming distorted reverb so thick and heavy you could carve a statue from it.

Maybe you’ve noticed the Reverberation Machine doesn’t have regular reverb pedal controls. That’s because it isn’t a regular reverb pedal. Unless you want it to be. You’re operating this machine.

Try it as a subtle always-on ‘verb or experiment with
pushing the Altitude higher to blast your reverb signal into distorted gloom and lo-fi sheen. The tone-toggle switch selects between swampy cavernous ambience or shimmering, splashy reverb with exciting upper-harmonic sparkle.

The VOL control adjusts the output volume which lets you push the front end of your amp even harder past unity gain and beyond. Crank it to push gutsy reverb sounds to the front of the mix, surging from your speakers with elevated ambience and a lush, natural decay.

The [Altitude] control adjusts the Reverberation Machine’s ALTITUDE setting, which is similar to gain on a distortion pedal and blankets the reverb trails with blossoming fuzzy warmth and harmonics for an
unmistakable and unforgettable effect. The Dark / Light toggle switch selects between the two reverb voices – dark and cavernous or drippy spring – and the knob labeled VERB controls the wet/dry mix, size, and density of the reverb.

In true Death By Audio fashion, the VERB control goes all the way to 125% wet for trippy psyched-out reverbs that are louder than the input! This thing gets intense!

Vol: Adjusts the master output volume.

Altitude Control:
Post-reverb fuzz control. Turn it
up to add harmonics and character for a wide-open distorted sound.

: Adjusts the reverb wet/dry blend, density, and size.

Dark/Light Symbol:
Dark cavernous reverberation
to bright shimmering reverberation.

: When the Altitude and Verb controls are turned past 12 o'clock, the pedal can produce potentially harmful volumes, white noise, and other artifacts. Always check your gain staging!
