ReValver 4

Peavey Electronics®, one of the industry’s most progressive musical instrument and audio equipment manufacturers, is proud to introduce the groundbreaking ReValver™ 4 amplifier modeling software. Redesigned from the ground up, this latest version of the award-winning ReValver software contains revolutionary amp modeling capabilities that capture true characteristics of real tube amplifiers.



ReValver is renowned for its industry-leading amp modeling accuracy, which is achieved by modeling an amplifier down to the component level. Now Peavey has updated and improved the modeling engine in ReValver 4, taking amp modeling to a whole new level of realistic tone-shaping possibilities. The new ReValver 4 also incorporates a GUI and UX redesign and the ability to run on a Windows® tablet, plus other high-level features including GIG mode, ACT™ (Audio Cloning Technology) and RIR 2 cabinet modeling.

Based on feedback from the extensive ReValver user community, the application’s redesign has been done so to improve user experience and workflow. The GUI now separates pedal board, amps/cabs and effects into their own views, thus minimizing the amount of vertical scrolling needed to navigate the application.

GIG mode further expands ReValver’s power as a live performance solution by allowing the user to load 8 presets into memory and seamlessly switch between them. The presets can also be assigned to MIDI controller switches. In addition, another primary consideration of the GUI and UX redesign was to make ReValver 4 the ideal solution for amp modeling on Windows tablets. As a result, the combination of ReValver 4, an audio interface, and a Windows tablet makes the perfect live performance rig.

Peavey’s ReValver 4 also features ACT (Audio Cloning Technology) modules that allow the user to mold and shape the guitar sound at both the input (before amp modeling) and output (after modeling). At the input, ACT turns ReValver into an instrument modeler by altering the incoming guitar signal to mimic the sound and characteristics of other instruments, such as acoustics, folk instruments, and even other electric guitar and pickup combinations. At the output, ACT allows the user to load presets that sculpt the signal to fit in a recording mix or mimic the sonic characteristics of famous guitar rigs.

With improved Impulse Responses, ReValver 4’s RIR 2 feature takes cabinet modeling to a whole new level of accuracy and realism by giving the user independent control of speaker configuration, microphone, and mic placement, allowing for almost endless tone shaping options. Plus, the new Pedal Board feature provides a familiar environment to build and edit an effects chain.

With ReValver 4 also comes the introduction of the ReValver Amp Store, allowing users to purchase new amps, stompboxes, effects, and ACT content through in-app purchases. Users can begin with the free version of ReValver 4, and then simply purchase the additional content they desire.

ReValver 4 supports the powerful new AAX plug-in format for Pro Tools®, and can now host both VST and AU plug-ins even in a Pro Tools environment. As always, the software can also be used as a stand-alone virtual amplifier.

I tried Revalver way back, don't remember the version number, but it did indeed sound pretty Peavey to me.

I never liked the IK idea of this ether, but the base software will be free, so come on this is good news.

At first glance I didn't like the idea, but as time went by it actually made sense. You get a free base app and extend it with the modules you actually need/want. I think it pays off in the long run - if the practices are fair and pricing is right of course.

I agree, the thing that ik got wrong was their stupid credit system, just charge what it really costs in real money $€£

Is it just me, or does anyone else just hate the tones at about 1:00 and 3:20 ?? Sounds like a BOSS distortion pedal straight into the ear.

And who is impressed by multitap delay + chorus to polish a turd? And acoustic guitar simulation? Hello, is this 1986?

I've only tried Revalver HPse, but I've been really impressed. Great tones, and the chorus is in the same league as my TC M3000...

Many new amps, and tweakble like real amps. ReValver MKIII.V you only could tweak some.
Here you could mod the amp/effect like real.
Later (with Ampbuilder)you will be able to built your own amp (If you have the wisdom) and make any amp/effect from ground up with grafic.
The engine of ReValver 4 is complete new.
And release is soon.

Modding and building amps within the plugin is a fun idea, but if the sound is not there, it's worth absolutely nothing.

I have ReValver HPse which is a cutdown version. It has a great EQ (!), excellent chorus and good reverb. I'm not a guitarist so I can't speak to the amp modelling.

Overall, I'm impressed with the quality.
