    I have one in my studio. Sounds good but I use it on all except vocal where I use Lexicon. You have very ggod Modulation EFX and delay.

    I had one at the place I worked. It was a very nice unit but somewhat dated in today's 24/96 world. If you can get a good price on it BUY IT you won't be sorry.

    The REV7 was all the rage back in the 1980's. The SPX-90 came about as a downsized REV7. There is still a few who cheerish and love them. Like many things from that era, grainy, limited bandwidth and kind of noisy.

    I LOVE them....I sold mine because I was getting out of the recording business(yeahh rightttt!)..they are all I personally like on drums.I still have an Spx90.Yes they're grainy..Yes they're a bit noisy...Yes they're dated...Yes they work on drums...and sometimes on headphone feeds to singers who love and need to be down in the barrel.

    I LOVE mine too... And yeah, awesome on drums. A bit noisey for sure.

    Some day soon, I'll be sending mine (along with my LXP-1 and LXP-5) and to Jim Williams at Audio Upgrades for a mod.

    The Rev 7 was the last Yamaha processor that I liked. I owned a pair. Noisy, but much better sounding than the processors that followed, and much more and more easily controlled.

    I doubt that the noise spec would work today. That is why I finally got rid of mine about 8 years ago. But the ability to quickly set up two different delays for left and right, and the very cool reverse reverb (used on hard rock/metal power snares...) are neat.

    Does anyone know what the difference between the REV 5 and the REV 7 was. I have seen numerous REV 5s in studios.

    Thanks for the input guys. I have a friend with a Rev-5 and he still uses it for a lot of things.
    He thinks it has a warm sound to it due to the limited band width.

    Wow. I'm surprised so many folks like the Rev 7. I've had one forever it seems. Noisey and grainy are the words. I still keep it. Not sure why. I haven't used it in years.
