Reverb 2016

The Reverb 2016 recreates the legendary reverb algorithms of Eventide's SP2016

Every aspect of the original effects have been duplicated, including every detail of the user parameters.

The Reverb 2016 is built for reverb, it's not a multi-effects box. It was designed from the perspective that reverb is used almost always and warrants a dedicated box with an optimal user interface. 

Recreating the original reverbs is the bread and butter of the Reverb 2016, it also features new and enhanced versions of the originals. These new algorithms have the same basic structure of the originals but with more complex early reflections, higher density, and finer control of the parameters. They represent the natural evolution of the development work that maxed out the array processing power of the SP2016.


"I've used the Eventide SP-2016 on hundreds of projects since its initial release in 1983. I've always loved its smooth natural decay for vocals and orchestral tracks. The density of the reverb is great for drums and percussion. The new reverb 2016 retains all the charm of the original while greatly reducing the noise floor and and allowing much finer control of the reverb parameters."
—Mick Guzauski

There is something about the way this neat box generates reverb — and more importantly, the way that its reverbs sit in a mix — that makes this a great machine.

Customer Testimonials

In conclusion, I would, without hesitation, say that the Reverb 2016 is as versatile as a stand-alone reverb could ever be, sounds outstanding, and is without peer in its simplicity of operation. These features combine to make the 2016 anyone’s first choice for a sound re-enforcement reverb unit.
—Peter Aresnal
The 2016 plug is a regular component of my reverb scene. It's colorful texture penetrates guitar music better than just about anything.
—Hank Neuberger
For those of us in the engineering profession, the Eventide 2016 has been the reverb by which we judge all reverbs. These legendary reverb algorithms are among the most eagerly anticipated plug-ins ever!
