AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--REVx Technologies, an Austin, TX company, has debuted the REV33, specifically designed to provide a better, lower distortion mix and reduced ear fatigue for musicians and sound engineers using in ear monitors or headphones. Each REV33 is calibrated to work with the drivers in your specific in-ear monitors and headphones to greatly reduce ear-fatigue without touching the music. The profound effect of the REV33 has been validated with over 6 months of on-stage and in-studio trials with over 40 music professionals.
“The greatest thing about the REV33 is I’m not ringing and my ears are not exhausted at the end of the night,” said Marty Sammon, keyboards for the Buddy Guy band. “The REV33 really works well with my custom-molded in-ears. I hear much more detail.”
Stu Cook, one of the founding members of Creedence Clearwater Revival and 1993 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee agrees and enjoys the mix produced with the use of the REV33. “I am really feeling the impact in my mix. The noise and distortion that’s been there all along is gone with the REV33.”
“Coming off just one gig with the REV33 was like night and day. I felt like I was able to mix the low-end a lot higher, the distortion was gone… I wasn’t having to 'crank it' to sound full anymore… so much less destructive,” stated Max Frost, Singer/ Songwriter with Atlantic Records.
Ear fatigue can have a tremendous impact to the quality of an artist’s performance and how their ears feel after a performance. The distortion that is generated by the drivers in in-ears and headphones reduces the quality of the artist’s monitor mix, leads to higher volume settings as they listen for critical details and contributes to the ear fatigue felt after a live performance or studio session. More drivers in your in-ears means more opportunity for distortion to be generated. The REV33 impacts the unwanted electrical signal generated by that distortion energy before it can corrupt the music signal and electronics. The REV33 is a small, plug-and-play passive device that connects between your in-ears and receiver pack. The REV33 does not process, equalize or filter the music headed to your ears, instead, it works on the signal that flows back toward the amplifier, leaving the music untouched.
The reduction in ear fatigue was validated in a scientific study with the University of Texas Communication Sciences and Disorders department. This was further validated in early trials with accomplished sound engineers and well-known national touring bands such as the Buddy Guy band, Max Frost, Creedence Clearwater Revisited, and Big Head Todd and the Monsters.
The REV33 also provides another significant benefit. By keeping distortion out, more of the pure music is able to come through. This is what we call the REV33 TrueSound. What you will hear from in-ears and headphones will have more sonic clarity, separation and detail.
REV33 was developed by the Austin, TX-based company, REVx Technologies. REVx Technologies, Inc. was founded by Brett Butler, Dr. Dennis Rauschmayer, Karl Kipke and Bryan Anderton. The common thread running through the founders is a passion to improve the performance experience of music professionals and the listening experience of music lovers. Brett and Dennis together have nearly 50 years of experience managing hardware and software R&D teams and leading complex businesses in the semiconductor industry. Both are driven by an inherent desire to apply technology in ways that can make a profound impact and have found that in music and the way it is delivered to your ear.
