Create rich, spacious reverberations with the Ventris Dual Reverb. The Ventris features 14 meticulously crafted reverb engines built on two completely independent 56-bit signal processors, essentially housing a matching pair of high-powered, stereo reverb pedals in a single box. The pedal’s dual DSP architecture provides massive processing muscle, adjustable preset spillover time, and advanced dual reverb effects. Step into a vast realm of ambient space.
Two Reverb Pedals in a Single Housing.
The supremely intelligent Ventris Dual Reverb features two completely independent 56-bit reverb processors, essentially housing a matching pair of high-powered reverb pedals in a single box. The Ventris’s powerful dual processing architecture gives the pedal some serious advantages including massive processing muscle, adjustable preset spillover time, and the ability to create dual reverb effects.
- Dual Reverb Effects: The power to combine two reverb engines truly expands the pedal’s ambient possibilities. Run dual reverb effects in a parallel or cascading signal path, or split your reverbs and send a different effect to each of the pedal’s two Outputs.
- Massive Processing Power: Dual processing eliminates bloated all-in-one reverb programs. Instead of being forced to allocate 5% of the processing power to something vital and complex like the True Spring reverb, we can now dedicate 100% of the processor, opening the door to a new frontier of realism and sonic exploration.
- True Spillover: Seamless “spillover” from one preset to the next is an enormous advantage in live situations. Switch from one reverb preset to another without abruptly cutting off the trail of the previous effect. And, the dual reverb engines make it possible to program (with the Neuro Desktop Editor) the decay rate of the first reverb trail.
Neuro Editing System
Job one in the development of the Ventris Dual Reverb was to create an exceptionally realistic and easy-to-use reverb pedal. Out of the box, that’s exactly what it is – plug in, select from the twelve onboard reverb engines and create a new world of time and space. But there is much more here than meets the eye – the truly “Big Idea” behind our One Series pedals was to give musicians a second, far deeper, set of options and editing tools with which to craft the perfect tone. The Neuro Desktop Editor and Neuro Mobile App are free downloads for iOS, Android, Mac, and Windows. They offer a collection of additional reverb engines as well as an expanded set of editing parameters. After editing your preset, burn it directly to the pedal and access it easily without reconnecting the Neuro App.
Source Audio’s two man engineering team of Bob Chidlaw and Jesse Remignanti took extreme care in crafting the Ventris Reverb’s exceptionally spacious tones, covering all the bases from beautifully natural reverberations to haunting “unnatural” tones. The Ventris Dual Reverb includes 12 onboard reverb engines as well as an ever-expanding collection of reverb effects available via the Neuro Mobile App or Neuro Desktop Editor.
The True Spring engine is the perfect example of the Source Audio engineering team taking full advantage of the Ventris Dual Reverb’s immense processing might. True Spring flawlessly captures all the subtleties and idiosyncrasies of classic spring reverb equipped amplifiers, including the characteristic “drip” associated with the vintage effect. Spring reverb simulation was a major challenge, requiring a deep understanding of the physical characteristics of reverb springs, advanced experience in sound design, and exceptional processing power. Chief Scientist Bob Chidlaw drew upon all his knowledge and experience in the creation of the True Spring engine, from his days as head engineer at Kurzweil to the creation of Source Audio’s Soundblox 2 Dimension Reverb. The result is a supremely natural sounding reverb effect.
Neuro Editor Features
Connect the Ventris Dual Reverb to the Neuro Desktop Editor or the Neuro Mobile App and explore the power of effect downloading, customization, and sharing that comes with every Source Audio One Series pedal. The Neuro Desktop Editor is a free downloads for Windows and Mac computers. The Neuro Mobile App is a free download for iOS and Android mobile devices (download instructions below).
- Free Effects Downloads — Access a growing library of additional effect engines. Edit those engines and burn them to any position on the effect selector or any of the pedal’s 128 presets.
- Customize Effects — Make deep editing changes with the Neuro Editor’s huge collection of additional parameters.
- Save and Share Customized Presets — Fine tune your reverb effect, then save it to your personal effects library and easily share it with the growing community of Neuro users.
- Download Presets — Explore Source Audio’s ever-expanding, library of free effect presets.
- Simple Connection — The Neuro Mobile App. connects with the Ventris Dual Reverb via the mobile device’s headphone jack and stereo Input 2 on the pedal. A Neuro App connector cable (1/8” to 1/4”) is included with the pedal. The Neuro Desktop Editor connects to your computer via the mini USB port on the top of the pedal.
- Join the Neuro Community — Visit the Web tab on the Neuro Mobile App or the Neuro Collective page on the Source Audio website and download from the ever expanding library of Ventris Reverb presets created by other Neuro Community members.
Using the MIDI IN jack (5-pin DIN) or a USB connection, the Ventris can be controlled by generic MIDI Continuous Controller (CC) and Program Change (PC) messages. Many of the Ventris’s parameters (even those that are not assigned to a control knob) are directly accessible via MIDI continuous controller messages.
- Preset Saving / Program Change (PC) Messages — Save up to 128 effect presets recallable with MIDI PC messages.
- MIDI Continuous Controller (CC) Messages — Control individual parameters or specific pedal functions with MIDI CC messages. Accepts multiple CC messages simultaneously (the number of possible simultaneous CC messages varies depending on the message complexity)
- 5-Pin MIDI DIN Ports — Send MIDI program change (PC), continuous controller (CC), and clock messages to the Ventris via its MIDI IN jack. Pass MIDI messages on to other pedals with the MIDI THRU jack.
- USB Port — Send MIDI program change, continuous controller, and clock messages to Ventris via its USB port.
- Neuro Hub — Connect the Ventris to the Neuro Hub and send receive MIDI messages via the pedal’s 1/8” Control Input.
