    I am moving into a studio that still had one of those lying around. The one or two times I have put my hands on it, I thought it wasn't all too practical, but maybe I was too inexperienced back then (i knew nothing, pretty much).

    Is it worth using on anything? Any recommendations on what YOU like to use it for? The stuff I record is varied...some rock, some slow stuff á la international soft music, some electronic pop...

    If you have one, what do you use it for? Does it have any strengths?

    It's an OK Kik drum reverb.

    I've had one here for about a year. It's been used on vocals, drums and the occasional synth pad or guitar solo. Not a bad unit but there's better out there.

    The Rev7 is actually a pretty cool unit. We have one here and I doubt we will be getting rid of it any time soon. There's this neat preset in the single digits that is a subharmonic processor with reverb that sounds pretty cool on bass guitar if you're trying to fatten up a thin sounding bass track. That's all I've ever really used on it but I know that some producers come in here and go goo goo over the thing. Play around with it - you might be surprised!

    Thanks for the input. It seems like I will be able to put it to use then. I am not sure about the kick drum verb though...is it like a cathedral kind of patch or more on the tunnel side of things?
