AMS RMX16 Digital Reverb reincarnated as 500-series

Posted on: Sunday 19th of January 2020

Nearly 40 years since making its debut on the professional recording scene, the iconic AMS RMX16 Digital Reverberation System has been relaunched in hardware format as part of AMS-Neve’s rack-mounted 500 Series.

In keeping with its predecessor, which AMS-Neve say “was the world’s first microprocessor-controlled, full-bandwidth digital reverberator”, the new RMX16 500 Digital Reverb Module is designed to be musical rather than simply implementing mathematical algorithms. Great care has also been taken to replicate the complex sonic characteristics of the original unit’s analogue and converter circuitry, which played a big part in the overall sound.

The AMS RMX16 was designed by ear, with each program tuned and re-tuned to provide as wide a “sweet-spot” of settings as possible by means of “carpet graph” parameter tables, interactively linked control by control. These design principles are key to its longevity and have been carried forward to the new RMX16 500 to ensure that it replicates the original’s outstanding performance.

Key features include:
  • An 18kHz bandwidth, allowing it to also be used as a high-quality digital delay line.
  • 90dB dynamic range and 0.03% distortion in delay mode.
  • Adjustable input and output levels for optimum signal to noise performance.
  • Low power consumption (and therefore cool running).
  • Independent control of each program’s fundamental reverberant parameters.
  • Nudge buttons to increment or decrement data for all selectable reverberation functions.
  • Alphanumeric program descriptions for ease of use when storing or recalling information for the unit’s memory.
  • New rotary push encoder enabling all parameters and settings to be adjusted by ear.
  • New wet/dry mix blend function.
  • New save/recall feature with 100 user-defined memory slots.
