Housing an unabridged valve amp-style signal path recreated in analogue electronics, the Origin Effects RevivalDRIVE
and RevivalDRIVE Custom
accurately deliver a wide range of British and American amp tones, from clean to fully cranked.
Connecting the Revival Footswitch to the F/SWITCH input at the rear of the RevivalDRIVE provides two further functions:MID ENGAGE
With the pedal’s MID ASSIGN switch set to F/SWITCH, this allows you to apply the adjustable mid boost to whichever channel is currently selected.
Please note: the MID BOOST is applied to both the DRY and O.D. signals mixed by the BLEND control. The MID BOOST function is not active when the pedal is in BYPASS mode.
This footswitch “overrides” or removes each channel’s BLEND control from the signal path. With the BLEND knob set for a mix of DRY and O.D. signals, engaging the DRY OVERRIDE effectively removes the DRY component and reverts to a 100% O.D. signal.
This offers additional flexibility akin to having another channel on your amp. For example, with the channel controls set for medium gain and the BLEND knob at 12 o’clock, engaging the DRY OVERRIDE footswitch lets you go from an organic clean tone with a little grit to a fully overdriven sound for solos.
By carefully adjusting the DRY GAIN trimmer, you can control the change in volume – up, down or unity gain – that occurs when engaging DRY OVERRIDE. For example, you could set up your core drive tone with DRY OVERRIDE engaged, then transition to a cleaner sound of equal or greater volume by disengaging DRY OVERRIDE and turning the DRY GAIN control up.
The Revival Footswitch includes a TRS patch cable. Origin Effects believe that even patch cables should be of the highest quality, which is why they make theirs with Van Damme cable and Amphenol connectors.
