I'm doing some simple recording with an 840...mostly accoustic guitar, light bass, and vocals but I can't find a reverb setting that I really like. The factory patches I've been trying are either too "light" (i.e. "ambience") or too much reverb. Does anyone have any ideas or favorites and/or do I need to change the settings on one of the factory patches to get a good sound? BZ

BZ, first thing to try is to change the send to the reverb. First make it really obvious, than back it off a little until you find that your instrument really plays in that room. This is hard to explain, but a good reverb shouldn't be heard when it's on. Only when you switch it off, there should be 'something' missing in your sound. So, try to do a lot of A/B-ing between EFFECT ON/OFF.

If you really don't like the Roland reverb, look for one of those nice boxes from Lexicon or TC Electronic (M-One) and send your signal via the AUX OUTS to this one.

Hi Peter,

We've discussed the roland reverbs before, about how its all or nothing with it. Since buying an ART FXR I never use the reverb on the roland anymore. I prefer to use a delay or pitchshift on the roland along with the ART reverb. I think it makes a big difference. I'm just curious, what kind of effects unit do you use and do you ever use the roland reverb.
