In the year of 1995, after years in the analogue world, dbx decided to jump into the world of digital effects, kicking it off with the dbx Model 290 Digital Reverb, a single rack size digital reverb designed to be easy to use.
dbx took the approach that digital reverbs are difficult to ‘programme’ and therefore, they targeted the dbx Model 290 at those who did not wish to fiddle around to get a great sound. As such, the front panel is adorned with a series of large push buttons to select the desired effect.
The dbx Model 290 is a true stereo, dedicated reverb processor designed for the professional who needs high quality results without the challenges of complex programming. Whether used in the recording studio or in live sound situations, world class reverbs are just a button press away.
The dbx Model 290 also includes unheard of signal to noise specifications for products in its price range along with a digital noise gate that pushes unwanted noise even further out of the audio picture. Some of the dbx Model 290’s features include:
