Roland SRV-2000

The SRV-2000 was released in 1985, and was Rolands first digital reverb, (like the SDE2000 was their first dig' delay), and to some extent the styling is still quiet nice & 80's with lot's of colour & bristling with controls & titles etc as did the other major Jap' players' studio kit from that era.. I like that styling.... These are a 'not bad' reverb, bit dated soundwise but ok, more of a collectors special i'd say when you can get way subjectively better 'verbs so cheap from so many manufacturer's, or as a retro sound it's great of course, harsher and more 'metallic' or ringing, but it's a good gritty sound, don't be fooled many of these get used still cos they have a sound like old spx90's that just works on vocals etc for upfrontness etc... but cos they are old as a consequence they can be had cheap, people tend to look at digital spec's and 'glisteningness' to evaluate 'verbs sadly when the overall reverb sound in the mix is so much more important.... here's the Roland brochure release text from 1985....

The SRV-2000 - a long-awaited digital reverb from Roland - was realized by fully applying Roland's advanced digital technology.

Thorough analysis of actual reverbrated sounds in numerous acoustic environments allowed Roland to determine the kinds of parameters necessary for a digital reverb to effectively simulate an acoustic environment. The SRV-2000 features all such parameters and cna thus simulate all acoustic envirnoments of any shape, any size, and any building material, from small rooms to big halls, churches, even tunnels!

The SRV-2000 incorporates a 16-bit A/D/A converter which converts analog signals into digital signals. The core of the SRV-2000 is a 28-bit, parallel-operation signal processor which serves as the arithmetic-operation circuit. All analog circuits feature discrete cinstruction to reproduce digital reverb sounds without loosing clarity or subtlety. The SRV-2000 offers an S/N ratio of 80 dB, a frequency response between 30 Hz and 10 kHz, a dynamic range of 90 dB, and a THD of 0.03%.

Its flexible, versatile performance, and excellent sound quality completely satisfy even the most demanding professional needs.
