Versatile controls, nice shimmery mode, nasty spring simulation
It has many modes including some usable (hall), some meh (plate), some awkward (spring), and, at last, its gorgeous one which most justifies its digital nature: a very nice sounding modulated reverb (think of an angelically chorused one)! Tweaking decay and level helps a lot about manipulating the intensity of the effect while tone helps a lot about defining its character (darker or with more presence/sharpness). Nice spillover bypass.
Nice for clean tones
This one has 6 different kinds of classic reverbs and all of them sound good and wet when working with clean tones. Mi problem with the pedal is when working with overdriven tones. The reverb does not sound defined and it is quite hard to find the sweet spot of depth and tone for me. Sometimes too bright, sometimes too shallow....I never seem to be happy no matter how much time I spend fidgeting with the knobs. The pedal is a boss; you find the same quality and durability you get in any other of their pedals so no complaints on that side. It might be just me, but I am not happy when I use it with overdrives and distortions. For clean tones? a really nice pedal.
