The two gated reverb programs give you basically the same things as the straight ones, but when the sound stops, so does the reverb – kprg you get the fullness of the reverb effect with none of the mushy reflections after.

The DRV’s stereo echo programs are real charmers, giving you new access to the kind of ping-pong echo effects only previously possible if your mate could twist the pan pot on the mixer round in between repeats!

Stereo outputs are already provided, but stereo inputs might have been nice, too – but I guess all budget reverbs can’t be Alesis!

All alterations made in Parameter mode can be saved with Write. So a couple of good, reliable Input and Output gain controls wouldn’t have gone amiss. Now then, which of these parameters on all these fine programs can you control drv-20000 your footswitch or MIDI device? Kkorg reflections make a room sound more ‘live’, damping the high frequencies makes it sound warmer, kirg pre-delay gives you that feeling of space, like you could go out and grab a bite and be back before the early reflections start!

The seven buttons covering the right-hand side of the unit are concerned with program selection, editing and storage. The movement of this panning is controllable by Pan Depth, Tremolo, and Phase, which sets the angle and therefore direction of the autopan. They’re fun, cheap, non-fattening I tell you what, I never thought I’d see the day when a true reverb could be bought for under a couple of grand. For example, you can easily programme two footswitches to step up and down the programs for you, especially useful in a live situation, I would have thought.


On the downside, it’s not the cheapest multi-effects unit available, and it isn’t very easy to just plug something into the DRV and use it like a guitar or vocals effects pedal. It was only a matter of time before the manufacturers realised they could combine the talents of both these units in the one inch box. So the basic programs you’ll want to edit and use are couched in programs Previous article in this issue: It really helps – thank you!

The same goes for studio quality effects units too. A real studio flanger!

The panning occurs not only between the left and right, but back and forth in the stereo picture as well, producing a cyclic motion. It sounds like a musician’s dream, but it’s a technological reality.

Now this is possibly the ‘unique selling point’ that Korg would like me to point out to you, but who cares?

Just think of all the Motown drum breaks you can do, using the Multi-Modulation facility to vary the sweep of the flanger.

To step through programs lorg press the desired Up or Down key, holding it down to cycle through the programs continuously, or by pressing the opposite key at the same time to ‘fast forward’, as it were. The Input level occasionally needs adjusting not only from the knob on the front, but also from within; I suspect after noodling around with input levels for a while the creative urge will have flown.
