Absolutely splendid natural clean workhorse Reverb. Call me nuts, but I compared it to a Lexicon 480L and Iliked using it better! I use it for just about everything. I use it to print verb to digital ADAT from my sampler via lightpipe, AES/EBU from the computer to DAT for post-production, and as an ambient room reverb on the whole board. Morphing is a real handy feature that let's you essentially fade between reverbs in real time. In other words, no more sudden clicks or pops. The unit also lets you recall your last setting, (also using morph) so if you're doing, say a live show or broadcast, you don't have to turn it down to set for each song. Also handy for live, the power button doesn't power down unless you press it for a full second. Good interface for a 1U piece of gear.

Good Points
Stereo linking, great algorithms, and a flair for doing it right. Presets are a great jumping-off point for customisation.
Bad Points
PCMCIA cards are not cheap and they get hot. Would have liked the option of a LARC-like controller.
