Ursa Major Digital Reverberator

  1. Hi there,

    first of all.. this is a great site.
    I´m a live-sound engineer and do a lot of live recordings as well.

    I recently got an old Reverb from a friend of mine for low cost.
    An old Ursa Major, which sounds great to me. Very limited in setting up the parameters but up to 6.4 sec of Decay-time in a very good quality.

    I hardly find any information about the Ursa.
    Is there anyone who has experienced this model and can tell me how he likes it ? Is it true that it is somehow related to the "Quantec" Products ?
    Thanx :)

    Congratulations on getting a bargain; you probably know that (at least in the US) the Ursa Major products can be a bit expensive.

    They were made by folks who left Lexicon, according to what I've heard.

    Also, an original engineer has just decided to do a limited re-release in a very slimmed down console-top version, with the promise of the same vintage tone (despite using modern parts....?)

    You'll find lots of info on the Ursa products at his site:

  3. Hi Peake,

    thanx for the link. I found a manual for may Ursa (not that I desperately needed one, three knobs and a Display :) ..).

    Good to know that I´ve got a precious little toy.
