Revolver Native from McDSP is a convolution reverb plug-in that uses convolution to exactly extract and replicate acoustic spaces and other electronic reverb generating equipment. It provides total impulse response sculpt-ability, dedicated and routable EQ, two syncable delay lines and specialized stereo imaging.
Convolution is known to be computationally expensive. Revolver is a highly optimized convolution engine, and to help maximize the power of any system, the software provides selectable latency modes and "Tail Cut" controls to save the computer from having to process signals that are inaudible.
When using a higher buffer size and the Low Latency mode, output delay can be as low as zero samples. When the user adjusts the playback buffer size of their DAW, Revolver will also check which latency mode has been selected and automatically choose the best one.
The Revolver Windows XP versions require an Intel Pentium 4 or greater processor. iLok required if one is not already on the system.

- Provides two bands of dedicated shelving EQ and three additional bands of routable EQ.
- The routing system has eighteen different insert combinations.
- Two programmable delay lines have five different possible insert combinations.
- The delay lines are each three seconds long and can be panned and synced to MIDI beat clock independently for a variety of tempo-based effects.
- All parameter adjustments are heard immediately, and the outputs are not muted during any control updates. The user does not need to wait while the reverb is "re-rendered."
- Contains positive and negative pre-delay, controls for the articulation and overall attack of the sampled impulse, as well as other specialized stereo field controls.
- Separate from the delay lines, the split delay feature can be used to create an image shift of up to 50 msec, between the left and right channels. The split dampening and selectable diffusion controls can accentuate an image shift in the frequency domain.

- Optional three band crossover provides control over the specific tonal characteristics of the reverb tail over time, separating out the lows, mids and highs.
- Applied directly to the impulse response essentially rendering on the fly and saving on system overhead.
