US effects maker Old Blood Noise Endeavors, distributed by ADG in Europe, has joined forces with the US-based band Datachoir to come up with the Rêver – a mix of reverb, delay and reverse effects in one pedal.

The Rêver is built around two signal blocks. One side allows for a momentary or latching (all switchable via the toggle on the back) reverse of a signal, while the other block contains a modulated reverb that is fed into a delay.

It allows the player to switch from modulated ambience to reversed textures.

According to OBNE: “The toggle switch on the front allows the user to set the order of the blocks. With the reverse at the start and reverb and delay after, the sound tends to feel washier and the reverse is smoother. Switch the reverse to the end of the reverb and delay signal and you have a more pronounced and choppy, glitch-like reverse effect.

“In addition, there’s an expression input on the back that lets you control the mix of the reverse on the fly, seeing you go from a subtle reverse effect in the background to a complete reversal of your signal, simply by rocking your foot”.


  • Reverb section – controls for mix, modulation and reverb length
  • Delay section – controls for volume, delay time, and feedback
  • Reverse section – controls for latching or momentary operation and blend between reverse and dry
  • Order switching – put reverse first for ambient wash or last for glitchy textures
  • Expression jack – for external control of the Reverse mix
  • Internal trimpot – to control output level
  • Relay bypass switching
  • Powered by regular 9 V DC PSU

UK RRP will be £229.
