Electro-Harmonix has announced its latest compact pedal, the Oceans 11, which features 11 reverb styles ranging from essential to exotic. EHX says the Oceans 11’s reverbs are:
1. HALL – reverb characteristic of a grand concert hall
- SPRING – ‘pays homage to vintage Fender tube reverbs
- PLATE – ‘a lush plate reverb’
- REVRS – emulates the reverse reverb effect created in studios where a note’s reverb fades-in backwards
- ECHO – reverb plus delay, a digital delay feeds into the Plate reverb
- TREM – reverb plus tremolo applied to both the wet and dry mix of a Hall reverb
- MOD – modulated reverb, a combination of various modulations creates rich reverb tails
- DYNA – three dynamic reverb algorithms: swell, gate and duck
- AUTO-INF – Auto infinite reverb that triggers a reverb wash for each note or chord. When a new one is struck, the previously resounding reverb wash crossfades to the new one
- SHIM – Shimmer generates a rich octave-shifted reverb wash
- POLY – Polyphonic reverb, two configurable bi-directional pitch shifts ‘
The Oceans 11’s Mode button lets the user select up to three variations of many of its reverbs for greater variety. The pedal also features “hidden” parameters accessible thru its Secondary Knob Mode that enable the player to take greater control of its effects.
An internal Tails switch provides a choice of whether the reverb effect fades out naturally or stops immediately when the pedal is switched to bypass. In most settings the pedal is also capable of producing infinite reverb which can be played over with a fresh reverb effect complete with adjustable parameters.
No UK price was quoted but as a guide the Oceans 11 will have a US Street Price of $147.80.
