Yamaha R-1000 Digital Reverb

Previewed at this year's Frankfurt Music Show, the R-1000 is a new studio-quality reverb featuring a built-in equaliser. It comes in a standard one unit 19" rack-mounting format and has front panel power and bypass switching.

Four reverberation types or modes can be selected, representing decay times of 1.55, 1.62, 2.3 and 2.4 seconds.

In the interests of economy, there's no readout of reverberation time other than an LED above each switch.

The equaliser is a three-band design which can be switched in or out at any time, using a footswitch if desired. It acts parametrically using dual-concentric pots, within the ranges Low (up to 700 Hz) Mid (up to 5 kHz) and High (up to 20 kHz). Each band can be boosted on a scale of 0-15.

An Input Level control and associated LED display indicates -13 to +10 dB, the control being calibrated from 0 to 10, as is the Output Level control. The final front panel feature is the Direct/Reverb mix.

The R-1000 is not expected to be available until late 1983 or early 1984, and the figures given here are those for the prototype and should be regarded simply as an advance preview to help ascertain the degree of interest in the unit, which Yamaha feels has been very encouraging. No retail price has been fixed as yet.
