Real Sound Modelling Stompboxes


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 Behringers’s team of acoustic, hardware and software engineers. Here’s what they have to say in their press release…
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.
“Developing RSM pedals has been a multi-year program for us that has resulted in a platform on which we can develop in many directions�, states Duwe. “Our 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 DJ’s, keyboardists and guitar amp effects loops alike.�
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
