Behringer say that new DSP technology breaks modelling sound barriers at amazing prices 27/08/08
Behringer say that they have added sixteen new effects pedals to their collection of high-performance, low-cost guitar, bass and keyboard effects processors. 24-bit RSM, or Real Sound Modeling pedals utilize advanced DSP algorithms developed by Behringersâ€™s team of acoustic, hardware and software engineers. Hereâ€™s what they have to say in their press releaseâ€¦
Based in Willich, Germany, and led by Senior Product Manager Jan Duwe, Behringer engineers have analyzed virtually every parameter of musical instrument sound production; from room acoustics and instrument construction materials, to electronic modification and amplification methods. The result is a new line of pedals that model everything from room reverberation to tape flanging and echo, to acoustic guitar simulation and more.
â€œDeveloping RSM pedals has been a multi-year program for us that has resulted in a platform on which we can develop in many directionsâ€�, states Duwe. â€œOur 24-bit hardware, firmware and software system will allow us to model many acoustic spaces, instruments and electronic modifications; at very little cost to the customer. One could easily be misled by the compact pedal form factor, but under the hood of our RSM processors you will find a lot of substantial FX for DJâ€™s, keyboardists and guitar amp effects loops alike.â€�
Jesse Bond, guitarist for Kanye West adds, "The Reverb Machine sounds amazing and has a lot of controls to dial in a perfect reverb sound. I played it through a couple of amps that are known for their classic sounding reverb and the RV600 did more than hold its own. It automatically earned a place on my pedalboard the first time I heard it."
Behringer RSM pedals include chorus, phase shifting, flanging, reverb, delay, echo, octave, dynamic formant eq, acoustic modeling, rotary, harmonizing and synthesis modeling. All pedals feature:
Real Sound Modeling with advanced DSP algorithms
24-bit A/D/A conversion
Rugged impact-resistant injection molded cases
Sealed rotary controls
Dual outputs for stereo or split-signal applications
Ultra-bright On/Battery LED
Battery or DC powered
