Walrus Audio Mako Series R1 High-Fidelity Stereo Reverb
High-Fidelity Stereo Reverb
The R1 boasts studio-grade reverbs from intimate and smaller room sounds to channeling choirs of angels. Six highly tweakable programs await and are ready to be explored. The R1 also boasts stereo in and out, up to nine on-board presets (128 via MIDI).
6 Unique Reverbs
The Spring program emulates an excited spring reverb commonly found in tube amps with loads of transducing drip. Easily go from subtle to full-on surf rock. Experiment with the decay knob to get more than average amounts of reverb not found in traditional amp spring reverb tanks.
The Hall program provides the acoustics of large live sound spaces like concert halls to arenas. Longer decays and higher X knob settings result in a massive wash of ambiance. Shorter decay and lower X settings allow for a more intimate reverb expression.
BFR is a no holds, big, f____, reverb. This is more than a giant arena reverb. It's a hall-esque reverb with rich and lush decay in a vast cavern filled with choirs of angels.
The RFRCT program allows for lovely, charming, and glitch-like textures hovering over a largely diffused reverb. The Rate controls on RFRCT change how often the glitch effects occur while Depth controls the overall volume of the glitch effect.
The Air program offers a larger diffused reverb with a subtle shimmer but has a more “crisp” clarity to its decay. Explore slow-building sounds that don’t get in the way of your playing. Air complements keys and synths as well.
The Plate program emulates a smooth analog plate reverb with nice even diffusion inspired by famous plates like the EMT 140.
9 on-board presets, 128 accessible via MIDI
The R1 is able to be controlled via standard MIDI messages. Simply connect your MIDI controller to the R1 MIDI “IN”. Downstream MIDI devices can be connected to the MIDI “OUT” which serves as a MIDI passthrough. The R1 is not able to control other devices via MIDI. The R1 ships with the MIDI channel set to 1 by default. Refer to the manual for more info.
