DIRTVERB

DIRTVERB

DIRTVERB has been designed to scratch your lo-fi itch with a combination of dirty tube-emulated distortion and vintage spring reverb.

In addition to the two basic control knobs, DIRTVERB offers two extra processing options via the signal chain and reverb switches.

DIRTVERB is a stereo effect so we recommend you use both outputs. If your source signal is mono, simply connect to either input, and DIRTVERB will do its lo-fi best to create something stereo-tastic!

ON button toggles DIRTVERB between active and bypass mode.

DIRT adjusts the tube preamp drive. Increasing this control will result in more gain, saturation and distortion.

The signal chain switch allows you to change the order of the effects via the three position switch:

DIRT -> VERB applies reverb to the distorted signal and is the most “traditional” use of DIRTVERB.

PARALLEL splits the input signal(s), applies dirt and reverb processing separately, then outputs a mix of the two according to the level of the REVERB knob. This can be used to achieve an interesting effect by mixing a clean reverberated signal, with a dirty one.

VERB -> DIRT applies reverb to the input signal first, then passes that signal on to the tube processing. This typically results in a darker, denser and fuzzier effect at extreme settings.

REVERB adjusts the decay time and mix of the spring reverb effect up to 100% wet. When used in stereo, DIRTVERB will enhance the stereo image slightly as the REVERB control is increased.

An additional stereo processing mode is available via the two-position switch below the REVERB knob:

LR -> LR is the standard mode where the original stereo image is retained during reverb processing.

LR -> RL switches the right and left wet reverb signals only, which can be used to produce interesting stereo effects, depending on the source material.

We hope you enjoy adding a bit of DIRTVERB to your mix!
