24 Bit Digital Reverb

Roland SRV-3030

One of the latest offerings from Roland in terms of digital effects.

Quality multi-effect processor, with very valid reverb spaces, but also great-sounding digital multi-fx.

The small rooms in particular sound very realistic, and detailed.

Notable the inclusion of an "EZ Edit" section, where one can edit the principal parameters of each patch very quickly and efficiently.

The SRV-3030D version adds S/PDIF digital connections to the unit.


Roland SRV-3030 audio demos

Here below are some of the SRV-3030's factory presets.

I used a Roland Fantom XR and a Roland V-Synth with their internal effects turned off for the examples.  The signal is first heard dry, then through the processor.
