Presented at NAMM 2020, the Death By Audio Rooms is a stereo multi-function digital reverb that treads new sonic ground. Long trails, gong tones, gated reverbs, and mangled long trails are just some of the stereo effects you can add to your sound. From the one-of-a-kind scientists at DBA.

The pedal is now available for pre-order, with shipping scheduled for the Spring of 2020.

Here’s a description of each one fo the six modes:

1 – ROOM: Tone of Decay : Pre-Delay
A classic reverb that simulates many different rooms.

2 – DIGIT: Delay Time : Delay Feedback
A filter matrix verb capable of creating otherworldly resonances and fractured repeats.

3 – PEAK: Filter Frequency : Filter Resonance
A super intense bandpass filter combined with an ambient reverb.

4 – GATE: Decay Tone Gate Response Time
A gated reverb. Short reverb times create a classic gate effect, long reverb times create a controllable freeze effect.

5 – WAVE: Modulation Frequency : Modulation Depth
Creates a pitch vibrato effect. Lowering TIME will blend out the reverb signal, allowing sweeps from chorus/vibrato to long modulated reverbs.

6 – GONG: Modulator Frequency : Blends from Aliasing (left) to Ring Modulation (right)
Ethereal, crushed reverb sounds guaranteed to make you star in the upcoming remake of DUNE and live out your sci-fi fantasies of space travel and galactic domination.

And here are the videos of the rooms!

ROOMS is a stereo, multi function digital reverb capable of searing volume, gated walls of sound, and long, trailing reverberant ambiances with an intuitive array of controls designed with live mood-bending in mind.

ROOMS was designed to the highest standards of flexibility and audio fidelity. A studio-quality mixer section provides independent DRY and FX controls over six meticulously programmed reverb algorithms; ROOM, DIGIT, PEAK, GATE, WAVE, and GONG. Each different verb is capable of a universe of sounds, and ROOMS is here to help you explore them.

ROOMS’ creative I/O switching and dual-mono dry signal lines allow for a wealth of possible mono and stereo configurations, making it easy to route signals for parallel processing or stereo amplifier setups.

CONTROLS

 

FREQ: Controls the frequency parameter of the current mode.

DEPTH: Controls the depth parameter of the current mode.

TIME: Controls the reverb time in all modes.

DRY: Controls the volume of the dry signal, from -inf to 20x gain.

FX: Controls the volume of the reverb signal, from -inf to 20x gain.

ALT: Engages the ALT mode, switching between two sets of controls. When active, FREQ is controlled with the knob, DEPTH with the knob, and TIME with the T knob. Additionally, the ALT mode turns on expression control of either FREQ or TIME using the F<->T Switch on the side of the pedal. NOTE: Expression control ONLY works in ALT mode and when an expression pedal is plugged in.

 

SPECIFICATIONS


Dimensions: 
5.95″ x 3.86″ x 2.96″ (including hardware).

Weight: 18 oz.

Power: 80 mA, 9V (runs on a standard 2.1 mm negative center 9V adapter).

Expression Pedal: Almost any expression pedal will work with ROOMS. When not plugged in, the controls work as normal. NOTE: Expression control ONLY controls the F or T knobs when ALT mode is engaged and when an expression pedal is plugged in.
