Peavey releases ReValver 4 amp modeling effect

Peavey ReValver 4

Peavey has announced the release of ReValver 4, an amp modeling software for Windows and Mac.

Redesigned from the ground up, ReValver 4 contains amp modeling capabilities that capture the characteristics of real tube amplifiers. It runs as Stand Alone or as an AAX/VST or AU plug-in on Mac OS X or Windows.

Peavey has updated and improved the modeling engine in ReValver 4. It also incorporates a GUI and UX redesign and the ability to run on a Windows tablet, plus other high-level features including GIG mode, ACT (Audio Cloning Technology) and RIR 2 cabinet modeling.

Based on feedback from the extensive ReValver user community, the application’s redesign has been done so to improve user experience and workflow. The GUI now separates pedal board, amps/cabs and effects into their own views, thus minimizing the amount of vertical scrolling needed to navigate the application.

GIG mode further expands ReValver’s power as a live performance solution by allowing the user to load 8 presets into memory and seamlessly switch between them. The presets can also be assigned to MIDI controller switches. In addition, another primary consideration of the GUI and UX redesign was to make ReValver 4 the ideal solution for amp modeling on Windows tablets. As a result, the combination of ReValver 4, an audio interface, and a Windows tablet makes the “perfect live performance rig”.

Peavey’s ReValver 4 also features ACT (Audio Cloning Technology) modules that allow the user to mold and shape the guitar sound at both the input (before amp modeling) and output (after modeling). At the input, ACT turns ReValver into an instrument modeler by altering the incoming guitar signal to mimic the sound and characteristics of other instruments, such as acoustics, folk instruments, and even other electric guitar and pickup combinations. At the output, ACT allows the user to load presets that sculpt the signal to fit in a recording mix or mimic the sonic characteristics of famous guitar rigs.

With improved Impulse Responses, ReValver 4′s RIR 2 feature gives the user independent control of speaker configuration, microphone, and mic placement, allowing for almost endless tone shaping options. Also, the electrical features or the cabinet that alter the response of the amp have been captured, allowing for even greater realism and dynamics. The new Pedal Board feature provides a familiar environment to build and edit an effects chain before the amplifier whilst the effects rack sits post amp for all your delay, reverb and modulation needs.

ReValver 4 also comes with the introduction of the Amp Store, allowing users to purchase new amps, stompboxes, effects, and ACT content through in-app purchases. Users can begin with downloading ReValver 4 which is free (included modules listed below) and then simply purchase the additional content they desire.

ReValver 4 for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX/Standalone) is available to download for free and comes with a number of free modules. Extra modules are available for purchase from the Amp Store.

A Producer Pack, which includes Over $250 USD of modules, is available for purchase for $99.99 USD. ReValver MK III.V owners can upgrade to the Producer Pack for $49.99 USD.
