BAM is a stereo reverb processor inspired by the late 70s / early 80s digital reverberator units.
These units are sought after by sound engineers, producers and musicians for their grainy, warm and musical reverberations.
Here at OTO, we are passionated by the technology of the digital reverberators, especially the old models!
We have carefully listened to all digital reverberators built from 1976 to 1986, studied their architecture and read all the available papers (from 1961 to nowadays) on digital reverb design.
It seemed obvious to us that the musicality of the early digital reverb processors was partly due to the algorithms (the way the processor synthesized a natural reverberation), but also to their hardware limitations.
