Today's digital effects and plug-ins can create almost perfect room simulations. However, when it comes to characteristic and charismatic reverb, analog effect processors are yet to be beat. The reverberating sound of a spring is so lively and unique that its sound is almost impossible to recreate in the digital domain. In addition to this, Retroverb Lancet is not just a spring reverberation system; it is also an analog multi-effects-processor. It offers overdrive, filtering, VCA, envelope and LFO to manipulate the spring sound and create different sounds like auto-wah, tremolo, distortion, delay, gater and, of course, reverb.
The typical spring reverb sound is generated by a Belton/Accutronics type 4 spring tank with three individual springs. It can be placed pre or post the VCF/VCA section and equalized by the TONE parameter.
The CRASH function generates the popular 'thunder' effect that occurs when kicking an amplifier with spring tank. You don't have to kick Retroverb Lancet; you can achieve this effect simply by pressing the CRASH button. It can also be triggered by a GATE voltage.
- Compact tabletop analog spring reverb
- Belton/Accutronics type 4 spring tank with three individual springs
- Spring reverb effect can be placed pre- or post-VCF/VCA
- Multimode filter works as lowpass or highpass with a slope of 24dB per octave, or as bandpass with 12dB per octave. It is followed by a voltage controlled amplifier
- Filter and amplifier can be modulated individually by different sources
- Retroverb Lancet offers three internal modulation sources:
- Envelope follower: converts the amplitude characteristic of the audio input signal into a control voltage
- Envelope generator: can be triggered by the input signal itself, a second audio signal or a gate voltage. Depending on the trigger source it works as attack/decay or as attack/sustain/release envelope
- LFO: offers saw up and saw down, square, sine as well as sample and hold. Additionally, it can use the envelope generator's settings as its waveform. It can oscillate freely or be reset by different trigger sources
- CV/pedal input for control via external control voltage sources or expression pedals.
