Licensed users with Pro Tools upgrade for free!
PRESS RELEASE: The highly anticipated RTAS release of ReValver MK III is available now as a free download at Peavey.com for licensed users of the acclaimed virtual amplifier software.
Developed by veteran tube-amp maker Peavey Electronics, ReValver MK III is a revolutionary 64-bit amplifier modeling software that captures the true characteristics of vacuum tubes while allowing users unprecedented control over their tonality and gain structures.
Consumers who have purchased ReValver MK III can download the RTAS upgrade now at www.peavey.com/products/revalver.
ReValver MK III models 15 of the world's most popular guitar amplifiers, including several Peavey amps, through an exclusive algorithm that analyses the interactions of the components at the circuit level, based on the amps' original schematics.
By controlling these amplifier models from the component level, ReValver is able to model every nuance with amazing accuracy, allowing serious players to design their ultimate custom amps and speaker systems.
As advanced as ReValver's modeling algorithms are, operating the models can be as simple or in-depth as the user desires. The software GUI is instantly familiar and easy to use, with a drag-and-drop interface where users can add and subtract individual components and devices such as amplifiers, preamps, power amps, stomp boxes and effects.
Unlocking ReValver's groundbreaking customization tools is also easy. By right-clicking on an amp model, users can "go inside" and adjust the amp's tones and components on the Tweak Module GUI.
This allows users to change, add or subtract tubes on all amplifier models, and then calibrate even the voltage parameters of those tubes. In all, users can program more than 15 elements and functions on each tube stage, with as many as 17 different preamp and power tube types to choose from.
ReValver MK III also features a robust stomp-box and effects section including various types of chorus, distortion, wah, tremolo, compression, limiter, delay, octaver and much more.
A new FFT-based convolution reverb allows for very complex and smooth reverbs, including sampled spring reverb, and allows users to import their own .WAV samples. Models of Peavey 6505, JSX, Classic, ValveKing and Triple XXX guitar amps are available in ReValver in software format.
