OCEANS 12

Online

Electro-Harmonix introduces the Oceans 12 featuring two simultaneous, independent, stereo reverb engines, series and parallel control for the dual reverbs, 24 presets and advanced I/O allowing for stereo in/out, splitting reverbs to left and right channels, or mono send/return with pre and post reverb options. The pedal also includes a new Tide Control for stereo image alteration, a Lo-fi Control, an infinite attenuation control and an input jack for external expression and 3-button footswitch control.

A Tails switch provides a choice of whether the reverb effect fades out naturally or stops immediately when the pedal is switched to bypass. In most settings the pedal is also capable of producing infinite reverb which can be played over with a different reverb effect. Comes equipped with a standard EHX 9.6DC200mA power supply.

Features
• 2 simultaneous, independent, stereo reverb engines
• Series and parallel control for the dual reverbs
• 24 presets
• Stereo in/out or mono send/return with pre and post reverb options
• Tide Control for stereo image alteration
• Lo-fi Control
• Infinite attenuation control
• Tap tempo to set your pre-delay time, echo time and more
• Input jack for external expression and 3-button footswitch control
• Equipped with a standard EHX 9.6DC200mA power supply

The Oceans 12's reverbs are:
ROOM - two modes: reverb algorithms modeled after a lively room and a spacious performance hall
SPRING - two modes: vintage 1962 Fender[reg] 6G15 tube reverb emulation and the spring algorithm from the EHX Holy Grail
PLATE - two modes: two emulations of the smooth, metal plate reverb often used in high-end recording studios during the 1960s and '70s
REVERSE - two modes: a reverse reverb effect as well as true reversed echoes
ECHO - three modes: a digital delay with various echo rhythms feeding into a plate reverb
TREM - three modes: a classic, periodic volume envelope with various shapes applied to both the wet and dry mix of a hall reverb
MOD - three modes: combinations of chorus and flange reverbs that create rich reverb tails
DYNA - three dynamic, experimental reverb algorithms: swell, gate and duck
AUTO-INF - three modes: auto-infinite reverb (w/optional chorus or flange) that "listens" to your playing and crossfades to a new reverb wash upon detection of newly struck notes.
SHIMMER - two modes: two configurations of a rich octave-shifted reverb wash
POLYPHONIC - two modes: two configurable bi-directional pitch shifts that add dimensionality to the reverb tail
RESONANT - two modes: reverb excited by tunable resonators and configurable self-oscillating filters on the reverb tail

It does everything the Oceans 11 does but double and with stereo output. The Surf Drip of the Spring setting is what started me down this road, then the Mod reverbs Flanger is cool and useable. The Tremelo setting is also great. The delay and tap is good too. Gets wild and trippy with the Reverse and Shimmer and Infinite. Ive only had it for a few weeks so I haven't tried all of its functions fully but you can save 24 reverb presets over 2 channels that work separately or in unison, thats worth the extra $115 over the Oceans 11.

Fantastic service as it came in about a week after I ordered it. It comes with a 40 page manual so have only cracked the shell on this thing but once you read the first 4 pages and check out the charts you are easily stacking the two reverb channels and going through the many parameters. It's easy to instantly find great and usable reverbs here and if you are shoe gazing it practically plays itself, it can ring out forever. it will keep surprising you with nice tricks as you dig in.
