The R1 is an extremely powerful and
versatile multi-function reverb that can quickly go from small intimate
room sounds to massive washes of experimental euphoria with six
customized, studio-quality programs - Spring, Hall, Plate, BFR, RFRCT
(Refract), and Air. Every program can be tuned and tweaked and then
saved to one of nine on-board presets. The R1 boasts a volume swell
effect that can be applied to any program, sustain and latching
momentary features, stereo in and out, MIDI control, and up to nine
on-board presets (128 via MIDI). Players of all styles and genres will
be able to find eternal inspiration with the R1.
The Spring program emulates an excited spring reverb commonly found in
tube amps with loads of transducing drip. Easily go from subtle to
full-on surf rock. Experiment with the decay knob to get more than
average amounts of reverb not found in traditional amp spring reverb
X knob adds a warm grit to the reverb decay.
The Hall program provides the acoustics of large live sound spaces like
concert halls to arenas. Longer decays and higher X knob settings result
in a massive wash of ambiance. Shorter decay and lower X settings allow
for a more intimate reverb expression.
X knob controls the room's size; smaller at lower settings to larger room sizes as you increase X.
Plate – The Plate program emulates a smooth analog plate reverb with nice even diffusion inspired by famous plates like the EMT 140.
BFR is a no holds barred, big, f____, reverb. This is more than a giant
arena reverb. It's a hall-esque reverb with rich and lush decay in a
vast cavern filled with choirs of angels.
X knob controls the amount of diffusion
applied to the multi-tap delays used to form the program. At lower X
settings, you'll hear these delays bouncing around for a more textured
sound. As you increase the X knob, the delays are diffused, creating a
smooth texture, and lifting your riffs and chords into the atmosphere.
RFRCT (Refract) - The
RFRCT program allows for lovely, charming, and glitch-like textures
hovering over a largely diffused reverb. The Rate controls on RFRCT
change how often the glitch effects occur while Depth controls the
overall volume of the glitch effect.
X knob is used
to shape the tone of the glitch effect. At zero, the glitch effect will
have a lo-fi, almost tape-like sound to them. Increasing the X knob
brightens these elements with more pristine details.
Air - The
Air program offers a larger diffused reverb with a subtle shimmer but
has a more “crisp” clarity to its decay. Explore slow-building sounds
that don’t get in the way of your playing. Air complements keys and
synths as well.
Use the Tune knob to shape the amount of
low and high frequencies in the reverb signal. The X position is unique
to program-specific features listed above.
Each program can be fully customized to your taste and playing style with the Tweak knob.
• Rate: Controls the rate of the LFO applied to the wet reverb signal.
• Depth: Controls the Depth of the LFO applied to the reverb signal.
• Pre Delay: Controls how long it takes after you play for the reverb to become audible.
The R1 has three different bypass modes.

Press and hold the SUS/LATCH
(Sustain/Latch) switch to momentarily sustain the current reverb and
continue to play over it through the same reverb algorithm. No dry
signal here! Clicking the SUS/LATCH switch lets you latch the present
reverb decay while you play over it.
