Lesson 9 - RV7000 Reverb

In This Lesson: Using The RV7000 Reverb

TheRealMusician Recommends:

If you want to take marketing your music to another level, then I can't recommend enough John Oszajca's music marketing manifesto. My favorite aspect of his complete program was his stance on email marketing, where he really leverages the that "1000 true fans" philosophy.

His website is a bit hokey (Flaming guitars? Seriously?), but his program really shows independant artists how to get a leg-up on signed artists.

How To Use This Lesson

Watch the video below and take the quiz at the bottom of the page. If you need a bit of extra help with the videos, then by all means read the accompanying written content (the written content on this page simply restates what was said in the video).

Make sure you set the video below to at least "720p HD", if not "1080p HD", and then set it to Fullscreen as well. Otherwise the video won't display properly, and it will be quite difficult to follow the tutorial.

You can set it to 1080p HD by clicking the little Gearbox icon at the bottom of the video, and clicking "1080p HD". You can set the video to fullscreen by choosing the very bottom-right button in the video.

The RV7000

You can change the mix from WET - DRY. The more "Wet" it is, the more reverb you will hear. The less wet it is, the less reverb you will hear.

  • The "Hi EQ" will affect the high frequencies that you hear from the reverb.
  • The "HF Damp" (High Frequency Dampener) will work to Dampen (Or NOT dampen) the higher frequencies that you hear through the reverb.
  • The "Decay" will dictate how long you hear the reverb after the note is played. A very long decay will mean that a single note will resonate for seconds.

The Remote Programmer

You can access the programmer by clicking the "Remote Programmer" button, which will allow you to go into some very advanced reverb settings.

Use the knobs to fool around with the settings in the remote programmer. I know I say this a lot, but EXPERIMENT! It really requires experimentation in order to fully understand how this programmer works. I believe you would learn these settings much faster through experimentation, rather than me explaining every detail.

In any case, you are able to work with Reverb, EQ, and the Gate using the remote programmer.

Just click the "Edit Mode" button in order to switch between these modes. You will be pleasantly surprised by how many different sounds you can come up with using these modes!


  1. What does the Wet/Dry Knob Do?
  2. The Decay Knob controls how many layers of reverb are present. (True/False)
  3. Exercise: Open the remote programmer, and play around with it for 5 minutes and 49 seconds.

Quiz Answers

  1. Changes to mix of reverb-original signal. The more wet it is, the more reverb there is. The Dryer it is, the more of the original signal there is.
  2. FALSE. The decay knob controls how long it takes the reverb to fade away (How long the reverb is present after playing a note).
