Re: YAMAHA Rev 7
Hi! Thanks for the reply's so far.  
The owner of the REV7 has offered me to buy it. He claims 1500 D.Kr for it !!!  
I think that is too much. I have testet the unit and came to the following results:  
It has some nice reverb/echo sounds indeed, but when the effect is engaged there is a constant uncontrollable hiss in the background. There are many parameters to adjust for each individual sound/patch, but i found it is difficult to get a decent chorus / flanger /phaser sound out of the box.  
(The flanger sounds like little reverb with a white-noise, sweeping up and down, mixed in).  
I have looked inside the box. In the audio section af the unit yhe op-amps were: JRC 5532, and JRC 4559. Date codes on the chips stated around 1985 - 1987.
