Sony DRES 777 vs. Yamaha SREV1 vs. Altiverb....

Anyone lucky enough to have a chance to compare these two? That 777 sure is sexy...never have a chance to actually use one. Those Sony engineers put a lot of time and efforts in capturing many awesome 'reverb' space around the world. I believe Yamaha has a similar product but I just can't remember what the model is. I had a chance to play with Altiverb but it used up lots of CPU resource and basically made the computer freezes up.

Altiverb gives you the longest convolution time [depending on your CPU] over the Sony or Yamama. 23s vs 6s [sony] and 10s [yamama w/ dsp card]

OK....but I can't really remember when's the last time I needed a reverb time more than 6sec. So alphajerk, you had tried the Sony or the Yamaha? What do you think about them?

well, verb times for altiverb are VERY different than the RT60's on algorithmic verbs. i find myself using 12s verbs with no problem at all.

i havent used the sony or yamama.

I have had a few hours with the sony machine, and it sounds quite impressive, especially on drums. It sounds absolutly natural. When a fellow engineer introduced the sony to me, we a/b'd it with a 460...It sounded like the lexicon was broken!

just read a description on the sony pro audio web site, the max reverb time is 11s. i guess the current unit's expanded dsp card surely gives the unit a boost.

Just got a chance the other day to fool around with the S-777. I find the thing to be pretty amazing. It seems to so easily fit into a mix...

I sure hope the Alitverb can do a similar thing. I'd love to have that sound at my home studio. Leave the 5 digit reverb purchases to corporate accounting.
