Revival is a "neo-classic", hybrid instrument that combines the power of modern synthesis with vintage organ sounds of another era. Drawbar additive-synthesis, harmonic modifiers and vintage effects combine to create an instrument that spans multiple genres with a vast sonic palette and responsive feel.
- Four drawbar sections, with 10 drawbars each, create the tonal palette with up to 40 oscillators per voice.
- Drawbars and wave-sets determine the basic tone of a Revival patch. Modifiers can then be used to create more complex textures. An envelope section provides control of the patch's basic dynamics.
- Wave-sets are used with drawbars to create an enormous variety of base-textures.
- Tuning and voicing overlay options can emulate classic instruments such as the Hammond B3 organ.
- Harmonic modifiers can dramatically alter the tone of the drawbar components, with several algorithms to choose from.
- Modifiers can be animated (modulated) with preset envelope shapes. Each modifier also includes note and velocity scaling controls.
- Modifiers are assigned to drawbars with a matrix of LED switches, creating an almost limitless range of sound-design possibilities.
Built-in Effects Rack:
- Tube and transistor-modeled preamps.
- Vintage stereo phaser.
- Multi-mode mod-filter.
- Speaker/cabinet-emulation includes classic rotary speakers with alternate miking.
- Rich, high-density reverb/plate/room-simulator.
- Multi-mode delay module.
- Master limiter with variable threshold to manage rogue peaks and maximize perceived level.
- Effects section can be used with external devices by patching them into the back panel's stereo audio input.
- MIDI and external modulation (CV-Input) can be scaled and mapped to several front-panel controls.
