The RMX160 Reverb comes included with Scope 5.0 and has the look of a classic rack mount reverb unit.  Upon loading this unit for the first time, I gave it my 'rhythm stick' test.  Basically just a stick click from one of my drum modules.  I was pleasantly surprised at the smoothness of the reverb tail when the Reverb Time parameter was set to twelve, producing five seconds of seamless reverberation that was even better than a couple of the hardware units I had owned.

This was a unit I could set and forget in my mixes, and add a bit of brightness to the mix with a boost from it's parametric equalizer on the output.  I found the red LED type display along the top of the unit very handy in showing a summary of the most important parameter values.


  • IN.  Controls the level of the signal going into the Reverb effect.

  • OUT.  Controls the level of the affected signal.

  • CONTROL.  This knob will change whichever parameter value has been selected on the right (with the small red LED light).  In this example, it will change the value of 'Reverb Time'.


  • Time.  Controls the time of the reverberation effect.

  • Size.  Controls the size of the reverberation room.

  • Delay L/R.  Adds a delay to the attack of the reverb signal.

  • Wet / Dry. Controls the mix of Dry signal vs Wet signal.


  • Speed.  Modulation speed.

  • Amount.  Amount of modulation applied to the reverb signal.

  • Delay L/R. Adds a delay to the attack of the modulation effect.

  • Wet / Dry. Controls the mix of the modulation effect vs the un-modulated reverb affect.


  • Threshold.  Level at which the dynamics effect is triggered

  • Attack. Speed of the attack of the dynamics affect.

  • Release.  Release of the dynamics effect

  • DISPLAY.  This will show the envelope of the Dynamics section when selected.

  • Equalizer.  This is a three band equalizer allowing the user to control the tone of the resulting output signal.


  • Each point on the graph represents a parametric EQ point which can control amplitude and frequency of the EQ point when moved with the mouse.

  • The parameter summary display at the top of the RMX160 shows the three values associated with the selected parameter.  For example, if you have selected Modulation Speed, the summary will also show the Modulation Amount and Modulation Dry values.
