The New Generation SPX with 96kHz Audio and brand new "REV-X" Reverb Algorithm
Superb Sonic Quality with 24bit/96khz Standard Throughout
Refined Preset Programs Including the Newly Developed "REV-X" Reverb Algorithm
Other 80 presets consist of the popular trademark SPX programs such as gate reverbs, delays, pitch effects, modulation and other special effects. All programs went through refined editing by the top engineers, and no program is the same as the ones offered in the previous effect processors or digital consoles. The "CLASSIC" bank on the other hand consists of 25 programs giving you the reminiscence of the original SPX90 presets. "USER" bank can store 99 user programs.
Reliable and Efficient Front Panel User Interface with Colors
SPX2000 LCD offers 5 back light color variations(!). You can freely assign any of the 5 colors to user programs. The preset programs are colored by effect groups giving you an instant recognition of the effect type even from the distance. (CYAN: Reverbs, WHITE: Delays, MAGENTA: Pitch & Modulations, YELLOW: Others, GREEN: CLASSIC Bank) RED is reserved for warning messages. SPX2000 "OPERATION LOCK" function offers 3 security levels; from preventing accidental changing of Utility settings, or protecting stored memories to prohibiting almost all operations.

SPX2000 EFFECT PROGRAMS
The REV-X presets in particular all 17 of them were redesigned completely from the ground up, with new reverb algorithms. The Hall presets (#1 - 7) provide various natural, high-density reverb programs, while the Plate programs (#16 - 18) give you a crisp, well-defined sound perfect for vocals. The seven Room presets (#27 - 33) feature realistic recreations of various environments, with fine parameter control over room size, as well as a variety of wall materials and sound-absorption characteristics.
Each and every one of these programs boasts incredibly rich tone and a super-smooth, grain-free decay giving you authentic ambience for enhancing the original sound. Moreover, various parameters provide detailed, comprehensive control over the processed sound.
- The SPX2000 also features: Stereo Reverb, Gate Reverb and special Drum Machine Reverb programs refined and updated from the SPX990.
- ER group effects especially for enhancing drums, percussion and guitar, as well as creating powerful, in-your-face sounds. These include #34 Fat Reflections, #41 Full Metal Gate (a dynamic gated reverb program), and #42 Reverse Gate.
- The Classic bank offers 4 basic reverbs Hall, Room, Vocal and Plate, as well as the early reflection, gate reverb and reverse gate programs from the early SPX models.
REV-X PARAMETER LIST
|BASIC PARAMETER||REV TIME||0.10~46.92s||Determines the amount of time until the reverberation decays to silence.|
|HI.RATIO||0.1~1.0||Determines the reverberation length (release time) for the high and low frequency sounds. This is used to simulate the damping factor of walls and ceiling.|
|LO.RATIO||0.1~1.4||Determines the reverberation length (release time) for the high and low frequency sounds. This is used to simulate the damping factor of walls and ceiling.|
|INI.DLY||0.0~125.0ms||Determines the time that elapses between the original sound and the reverberation.|
|DIFF.||0~10||Determines the density and separation of the reverberation.|
|ROOMSIZE||0~28||Determines the virtual 'size' of the room, and affects the reverb time.|
|MIX BAL.||0~100%||Determines the level balance of the original (dry) sound and the processed (wet) sound.|
|OUT LVL||0~100%||Determines the overall level of the mixed original and processed sound.|
|HPF||Thru, 22.0Hz~8.00kHz||Cuts the low frequencies of the processed sound.|
|LPF||1.00~18.0kHz, Thru||Cuts the high frequencies of the processed sound.|
|LO.FREQ.||22.0Hz~18.0kHz||Basic frequency for the LO.RATIO parameter.|
|DECAY||0~53||Determines the shape of the reverberation envelope. |
This affects the 'color' of the reverberation.
DELAY AND ECHO
A full selection of delays is provided, with mono, stereo, and a special stereo with center channel (#50, Delay L, C, R) for creating three-dimensional ambience. There’s also a Stereo Phasing preset (#66) that allows you to modulate the delay sound with a sine or triangle wave for complex, unique delay effects.
The Classic bank also effers two popular programs from the early SPX models: Delay L, R and Stereo Echo.
The Classic bank features the original modulation programs of early SPX models.
