Plate simulates the sound of early analog-mechanical reverbs. This algorithm allows for long reverb times that won’t take over your sound. Be sure to play with the [LO-DAMP] and [HI-DAMP] knobs to explore the full palette of tonal variations.

Plate Algorithm Controls
Mix [MIX]
wet/dry mixer, 100% is all wet signal
Decay [DECAY]
decay in seconds or note-based in Tempo Mode
Size [SIZE]
plate size
PreDelay [PREDLY]
pre-delay in milliseconds or note-based in Tempo Mode
Low Band Damping [LO-DMP]
Sets the damping frequency for the low end
High Band Damping [HI-DMP]
Sets the damping frequency for the high end
Transducer Distance/Spread [DSTNCE]
sets room/transducer distance from source/plate driver
Diffusion [DFSION]
adjusts diffusion amount which affects reverb build up and tail density
Modulation Level [MODLVL]
mixes in random modulation in reverb tail
Tone Control [TONE]
a pre-reverberator tone control, left is darker, right is brighter
Output Level
At 0 the output level is unaffected. Increase the output level of the effect by up to 20 dB or lower by 30 dB.
Tempo is turned ON/OFF on the H9 by simultaneously pressing the Right Footswitch and the PRESETS button. With Tempo OFF, tapping can be used to adjust delay parameter values (displayed as milliseconds or Hz). With Tempo ON, tempo is in BPM.
Turn effect on or off..
The Middle Footswitch can be programmed to act on the loaded Preset as a programmable controller allowing the user to switch between the normal Preset parameter values and a programmed, alternate set of parameter values. It’s like having two Presets in one.
If Tempo is ON, the display indicates the current tempo in BPM (30 to 500 BPM) while tapping and the Tap LED will blink at the BPM rate. If Tempo is OFF, the display indicates the parameter value (milliseconds for most algorithms).
