They are, plus by boosting the input right up with the preamp you can run the reverb at a fraction of the volume you needed to before - noise issues solved...

I got this pedal yesterday nd while I like the masses of verb, unortunately it doesn't play nice with my other pedals.
There really seems to be an input impedance problem with the unit in and out.

Instead of a transistor buffer I think I'll try using a sub-miniature valve. :idea:

Thinking more on this, you could just build a buffered fx loop with blend control, right?
No need to hack the pedal itself that way.

Been a fan of la revolution deaux for a while now, keep it up :thumbsup

Hope someone is still reading this half a year later.
I'm planning a rehouse, but want to keep using the pedal until the housing is finished, and then do a quick changeover.
So does anyone have the pot values for me (and other rehousers).
Cheers

Would anybody who has one of these be willing to read the DSP chips' numbers and post them? Wondering what DSP they're using.

I don't know for sure, but it's supposed to be a copy of the Line6 ToneCore series, therefore using a Freescale DSP56364.

Any gutshot to confirm this would be greatly appreciated.
I only give negative feedback.

Would it be difficult to create a housing for 2 Behringer Echo Machines to become one massive pedal? Even if there are two 9V barrel jacks for each pedal, so they are semi-independant power wise yet interconnected internally?

Hi Briggs,

can you tell me the size of RV-600 PCB? I am planning to rehouse it on 1590N hammond casing (121mm x 66mm x 35 mm)

thanks...
