Death By Audio Announces the ROOMS Stereo Reverberator

Death By Audio ROOMS Stereo ReverberatorDeath By Audio revealed their latest creation at Winter NAMM with the ROOMS Stereo Reverberator. The pedal offers six reverb algorithms (Room, Digital, Peak, Wave, Gate, and Gong) to offer a wide variety of soundscapes.

“ROOMS is a stereo, multi-function digital reverb capable of searing volume, gated walls of sound, and long, trailing reverberant ambiances with an intuitive array of controls designed with real-time mood-bending in mind,” they write. “It’s the finely tuned and infinitely tweakable result of Death By Audio founder Oliver Ackermann’s lifelong obsession with reverb effects units.”

One of the pedal’s main features is an ALT footswitch, which engages a second set of controls to let you shift between settings as well as activate the expression pedal for real-time exploration. Death By Audio collaborated with Electronic Audio Experiments to create the output mixer, which “provides pristine, studio-quality control of the wet and dry signals from -inf to 20x gain.”

The Death By Audio ROOMS Stereo Reverberator is available for pre-order with a direct price of $395.

Death By Audio ROOMS Stereo Reverberator Features:

Six unique, meticulously programmed stereo reverb algorithms:
ROOM – A classic reverb that simulates many different rooms
DIGIT – A filter matrix verb capable of creating otherworldly resonances and fractured repeats.
PEAK – A super intense bandpass filter combined with an ambient reverb.
WAVE – A gated reverb. Short reverb times create a classic gate effect, long reverb times create a controllable freeze effect.
GATE – Creates a pitch vibrato effect. Lowering TIME will blend out the reverb signal, allowing sweeps from chorus/vibrato to long modulated reverbs.
GONG – Ethereal, crushed reverb sounds guaranteed to make you a star in the upcoming remake of DUNE and live out your sci-fi fantasies of space travel and galactic domination. Control the spice, control the universe.
ALT footswitch switches between two sets of controls and engages expression pedal (optional)
Clever I/O switching also allows for a variety of routing possibilities for parallel processing and stereo amplifier setups
Hi-fidelity output mixer designed in collaboration with Electronic Audio Experiments
Dimensions: 5.95″ x 3.86″ x 2.96″ (including hardware)
Weight: 18oz.
Power: 80 mA, 9V (runs on a standard 2.1 mm negative center 9V adapter)
Expression Pedal: Almost any expression pedal will work with ROOMS. When not plugged in, the controls work as normal. NOTE: Expression control ONLY controls the F or T knobs when ALT mode is engaged and when an expression pedal is plugged in.
