Character And Shine
Introduced in 1976, the original EMT 250 is easily one of the best-sounding reverb effects ever designed. Like its 100 lb. forefather, DVR250 sounds absolutely amazing on everything from lead vocals and synths to drum hits and percussion. Actually, its glistening sway and sweet character is the perfect match for any track that needs sonic perfection and a warm vintage vibe.
Over the course of several years, our software team has refined and polished the algorithm for the DVR250. As a result, it emulates all the nuances that made the original stand out, down to the most minute spectral characteristics. DVR250 truly captures the vintage sparkle and shine embodied within the classic digital reverb.
Add Spice To Taste
Excelling in beautiful pads that will envelope and enhance your source sounds, DVR250 has a lot more to offer. In addition to the silver-toned reverbs, you can dial in a range of smooth effects, including echo, delay, chorus, phasing and space. These five funky extras are sure to work wonders on your guitar bus or background vocals, or to add shimmer to electric pianos and slow bass sections.
Hailing from our high-end processor platform, the triple TEC Award-winning System 6000, the sound quality of DVR250 is second to none. Through the years its sonic magic and vintage depth has been put to the test by countless, brilliant mixing engineers and musicians. DVR250 gives you instant access to a world of airy ambiences, virtually invisible short verbs and subtle depth of field – all that and more, right out of the box.
Record Ready Presets
DVR250’s Signature Presets will fuel your inspiration and add instant character to your mixing or recording session. Custom-built by some of the greatest producers and engineers around, these are not your run-of-the-mill presets, but record ready settings that will push the sound and character of the DVR250 to its full potential. And best of all? They’re on the house. You’re welcome!
Let Your Creativity Take Center Stage
As all the processing is handled inside your DAW, you can load as many instances as needed for your project calls. Plugged directly into your USB port, the hardware add-on lets you intuitively harness even the most-minute detail of your DVR250. This creates the perfect synergy between software and hardware aspects, and makes DVR250 an ideal addition to any modern studio environment.
To That Effect
To the modern eye, the huge upright chassis of the original EMT 250 Electronic Reverberator looks like something yanked from a well-stocked spaceship control panel. In the hands of celebrated sound smiths, such as George Massenburg, Kendrick Lamar, Nick Hook, Brian Eno and Bruce Swedien, however, the 250 has branded itself solidly into the very fabric of music. With the same distinct and open reverb tone known from thousands of classic records, DVR250 delivers that classic reverb in an extremely easy-to-use format.
Metering & More
The optional hardware add-on for the DVR250 provides high-resolution input and output meters for accurate signal monitoring directly on the hardware interface. The hands-on controls also let you tune all tone-defining parameters including pre-delay, decay, dampening and much more.
