Peavey releases ReValver MK III.V, guitar amplifier modeling software

Peavey has announced the availability of ReValver MK III.V, a guitar amplifier modeling software for Windows and Mac.

Peavey ReValver MK III.V

Developed by veteran tube-amp maker Peavey Electronics, ReValver captures the true characteristics of vacuum tubes while allowing users control over their tonality, configuration, tube types, and gain structures.

ReValver MK III.VReValver MK III.V features the debut of 21 new amp models, including the Peavey 3120, Peavey Masterpiece, Peavey Sensation, Budda Superdrive II, and Budda Superdrive V Series. New effects models in ReValver MK III.V are the classic Peavey VCL-2 tube compressor, the Budda Budwah expression pedal, and the Gate Keeper, a tube-based noise gate. All of the amp models, effects models and deep editing popularized by ReValver MK III are also available in MK III.V.

ReValver utilizes exclusive Peavey algorithms that analyze the interactions of the amps’ components at the circuit level, based on the original schematics. ReValver is able to model every nuance of tube amplifiers with “unprecedented accuracy”.

As advanced as ReValver’s modeling algorithms are, operating the models can be as simple or as in-depth as the user desires. The software GUI is intuitive and easy to use, with a drag-and-drop interface where users can add and subtract individual components and devices such as amplifiers, preamps, power amps, stomp boxes and effects.

Unlocking ReValver’s customization tools is also easy. By right-clicking on an amp model, users can “go inside” and adjust the amp’s tones and components on the Tweak Module GUI. This allows users to modify every imaginable tube parameter on all amplifier models. Users can also modify tube types, power amps, rectifiers, output transformers and tone stacks.

ReValver MK III.V features a robust stompbox and effects section, including various types of chorus, distortion, wah, tremolo, compression, limiters, delays, octaver and much more. Its convolution reverb allows for very complex and smooth reverbs, including sampled spring reverb, and allows users to import their own impulse responses. The VST Host module allows users to load their favorite third-party VSTs for use within the ReValver software.

ReValver MK III.V also features many “under-the-hood” updates. The tube model algorithms have been enhanced, resulting in a new level of realism. The convolution modules have also been updated to improve the handling of imported IRs and new “Brilliance” and “Bottom” parameters have been added to the modules, allowing for further fine-tuning of the impulses’ tonal characteristics. The VST Host module also features enhancements to ensure robustness and ease of use. MK III.V now boasts improved runtime performance on both the operating system and host level, with a focus on upgraded Pro Tools support.

ReValver MK III.V features

  • 21 amplifier models, including the Peavey 6505, 6505+, JSX, 3120, Classic, ValveKing, Masterpiece and Sensation.
  • 12 preamp models.
  • 9 power amp models.
  • 21 stompbox/pedal-type effects.
  • 12 rack-style effects.
  • VST Host module.
  • 32-bit and 64-bit operation modes.
  • More than 150 speaker simulations using real-time convolution and membrane modeling.
  • 8 utility functions, including tuners, signal splitters, analyzer and more.
  • Fully MIDI mappable.

ReValver MK III.V for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS) is available to purchase for a MSRP of $299.99 USD.
