Precautions
1. Select a suitable location.
Keep the REV500 away from locations where it is
likely to be exposed to high temperatures or
humidity—such as near radiators, stoves, etc. Also
avoid locations which are subject to excessive dust
accumulation or vibrations that could cause
mechanical damage, and locations subject to strong
electromagnetic fields such as those produced by
broadcast equipment.
2. Avoid physical shocks.
Strong physical shocks can damage the REV500.
Handle the REV500 with care.
3. Do not open the case or attempt repairs or
modifications yourself.
This product contains no user-serviceable parts.
Refer all maintenance and repair work to qualified
Yamaha service personnel. Opening the case and/
or tampering with the internal circuitry voids the
warranty.
4. Always turn the power off before making
connections.
Always turn the power OFF before connecting or
disconnecting cables. Failure to do so may damage
the REV500 as well as other connected equipment.
5. Handle cables carefully.
Always grip the connector, not the cord itself, when
plugging and unplugging cables (including the AC
power cord).
6. Clean with a soft dry cloth.
Never use solvents such as benzine or thinner to
clean the REV500. Wipe the unit clean with a soft,
dry cloth.
7. Always use the correct power supply.
Make sure that the power requirements listed on the
rear panel of the REV500 match your local AC
mains
8. Have the back-up battery replaced regularly.
The REV500 has a long-life lithium battery that
maintains the contents of the user memory even
when the REV500 is off. Under normal use, the
battery should last several years. However, Yamaha
strongly recommends that you have the battery
replaced by a qualified Yamaha service center
every five years, to prevent the accidental loss of
valuable data.
Should the battery’s voltage fall below a certain
level, the message “LOW BATTERY” will appear in
the LCD when you turn the REV500 on. If this
happens, it means that contents of your REV500’s
user memory have been lost. Have the backup
battery replaced immediately.
Prompt and regular replacement of the back-up
battery is necessary to prevent the loss of important
data. In addition, if possible, you should use the
MIDI bulk dump function (see page 17) regularly to
store backup copies of your REV500’s data in a
MIDI sequencer other MIDI device. This will allow
you to recover your data should the back-up battery
run down sooner than you think.
Introduction
Congratulations on your purchase of a Yamaha REV500 Digital Reverberator! The REV500 is a high-quality,
inexpensive, and easy-to-use digital reverberator, suitable for home recording or smaller sound reinforcement
applications.
A true stereo processor with two inputs and two outputs, the REV500 offers high-quality stereo reverb, either
alone or in combination with a variety of other effects. The 20-bit A/D and D/A converters feature a 44.1 kHz
sampling rate, for superb sound quality and wide frequency response. The REV500 comes complete with 100
preset programs that take excellent advantage of this high-performance hardware, plus room for 100 more
programs that you can edit for yourself.
The REV500 is also flexible and simple to use. It lets you use either 1/4" phone or XLR connectors for both
input and output, and gives you the option of +4 dB input and output levels. Four rotary controls allow quick
and easy editing of the basic program parameters. And MIDI IN and OUT terminals allow remote program
selection, remote data storage, and realtime control of program parameters using MIDI messages.
To get the most out of your REV500 Digital Reverberator, please read this manual thoroughly and keep it on
hand for future reference.

1 INPUT LEVEL control and meter
The INPUT LEVEL control sets the input level for both
the right and left input channels. It is accompanied by a
stereo LED meter that shows the levels of the signals
received by the REV500 after A/D conversion. Lighting
of the red CLIP LEDs thus indicates clipping of the
digital signal. You should adjust the control so that the
CLIP LEDs do not light.
2 PROGRAM keys
These keys let you choose the program that the REV500
will use to process the input sound.
The TYPE key selects the type of effect program to be
used: HALL, ROOM, PLATE, or SPECIAL. The current
program type selection is displayed in the upper left
corner of the LCD.
The PRESET/USER key selects between the PRESET
and USER program memory areas. The currently
selected memory area is displayed under the program
number in the LCD. It is possible to change the
parameters of a preset program, but the edited program
must be stored as a user program.
The NUMBER keys are used to select different programs
within the chosen program type and memory area. The
number and title of the currently selected program are
displayed in the top row of the LCD.

You can use the PROGRAM keys to select a desired
program, as described below. (Note that the following steps
do not have to be performed in the order listed.)
1. Select a program type.
Use the PROGRAM TYPE key to select a program type.
The REV500 has four program types: HALL, ROOM,
PLATE, and SPECIAL. Each program type contains 25
programs, as described in the REV500 Preset Program
List on pages 4 through 7.
The current program type selection is displayed in the
upper left corner of the LCD.
2. Select a program memory.
Press the PRESET/USER key to switch between the
preset and user program memory areas. When you first

can set early reflection levels ranging from 0 to 100.
Changing the Effect Level
You can also use the ER LEVEL control to adjust the effect
level, that is, the level of the total effect output. To do so,
press the EFF LEVEL key before turning the ER LEVEL
control. The LED above this key will light, and (as with the
other basic parameters) the program information in the LCD
will be replaced by a graphic display. You can set a level
from 0 to 100.
Use the PRE DELAY control to move the cursor from the
parameter name to the parameter value and vice-versa. Use
the REV TIME control to select the parameter you wish to
edit, and to adjust the value assigned to the parameter you
select.
Please note that the parameters available for editing will vary
with the effect type of the program you have selected. You
can identify the effect type of a program by checking the
upper right corner of the LCD.
Effect type
Refer to the next section for a list of the internal parameters
for each effect type.
Realtime Parameter Control

Saving Edited Programs
You must save the programs you have edited before
selecting a different program or turning off the REV500, or
the changes you make will be lost.
To save a program, press the STORE key. The program
number in the LCD will begin to flash, and the REV500 will
ask you if it’s okay to store the program. (If you are editing a
preset program, the memory area indicator under the
program number will automatically change to USER.)
If you want to save your program under a different program
number, use the PROGRAM NUMBER keys to change the
program number. (You cannot change the program type,
however.) Press STORE a second time when you are sure
you’re ready to save the program, and the REV500 will
comply.
If you decide you’d rather not store the program after all,
simply press the PROGRAM TYPE key or the PRESET/
USER key, and the display will return to normal.

System Functions
Selecting an Input Mode
Setting the Footswitch Function
If you will be using the REV500 to process monophonic
input (from the left input connector), you must use the
INPUT SELECT function to inform it of this fact.
You can use an FC5 footswitch with your REV500, for
hands-free control of one of two functions frequently
required during live performances. You can use the
footswitch either to mute the REV500’s effect output, or to
advance the current program selection.
To change the input mode, first press the UTILITY key. If
necessary, press the UTILITY key again until the INPUT
SELECT display appears:
Stereo input
Mono input
Use the REV TIME control to switch between the STEREO
and L-MONO input settings. When you have made your
setting, press one of the PROGRAM keys to exit the utility
mode.
Selecting an Output Mode
You can set the REV500 to output the processed effect
signal only, or a mixture of the both direct output and the
processed signal. (If you elect to add the direct signal, the
balance between the direct and effect output signals will be
determined by the EFF LEVEL setting.)
To change the output mode, first press the UTILITY key. If
necessary, press the UTILITY key again until the OUTPUT
MODE display appears:
Effect output only
Effect plus direct output
Use the REV TIME control to switch between the EFFECT
ONLY and ADD DIRECT output mode settings. When you
have made your setting, press one of the PROGRAM keys to
exit the utility mode.
14
You can select which of these two roles the footswitch will
perform using a utility function. To access this function,
press the UTILITY key. The LED above this key will light,
and one of the REV500’s utility function displays will
appear in the LCD. If necessary, press the UTILITY key
again until the FOOT SWITCH display appears:
Footswitch mutes effect
Footswitch
changes program
Program
change range
Use the REV TIME control to switch between the EFF
MUTE and PGM SEL functions. If you select the former, the
REV500’s effect output will be suppressed when you
depress the footswitch. Depress the footswitch again to
release the effect mute.
If you select the latter function, depressing the footswitch
will cause the current program selection to advance in the
order specified by the MIDI program change map (see page
16). This function also lets you adjust the range of MIDI
program change numbers that the footswitch can select. Use
the PRE DELAY control to move the cursor from PGM SEL
to the range setting, then use the REV TIME control to
adjust the upper value of this setting (which may be
anywhere from 1 to 128). The footswitch will advance the
current program selection until it reaches the program
change number you have set. Depressing the footswitch
again will return the program change number to 1.
When you have made your settings, press one of the
PROGRAM keys to exit the utility mode.
Adjusting the Audition Function
Changing the Initial Title Display
The REV500 lets you customize the audition function to suit
your needs. You can select one of two tones: either a snare
drum or a rim shot. You can also specify whether pressing
the AUDITION key will play the selected tone once, or start
it playing repeatedly. You can also turn the function off, to
prevent the REV500 from producing unwanted sounds if this
key is pressed accidentally.
This utility function lets you personalize your REV500 by
entering a short message that will be displayed briefly when
you turn on the power. This message can consist of two lines
of up to 14 characters each.
To edit this initial title display, begin by pressing the
UTILITY key. If necessary, press the UTILITY key again
until the INI TITLE 1/2 display appears:
To adjust the audition function, first press the UTILITY key.
If necessary, press the UTILITY key again until the DEMO
TONE TRIG display appears:
Cursor
Tone selection
Trigger mode
Cursor
Use the PRE DELAY control to move the cursor from the
tone selection parameter to the trigger mode parameter, and
vice-versa. Use the REV TIME control to select the desired
tone (SNARE or RIM), or the desired trigger mode (OFF,
ONCE, or SEQ).
When you are satisfied with your settings, press one of the
PROGRAM keys to exit the utility mode.
Cursor
This display is used to edit the first line of the initial title.
Use the PRE DELAY control to select a character you wish
to change, and the REV TIME control to change that
character. Repeat this process until the line appears as you
wish it to read.
When you are satisfied with this line of your startup
message, press the UTILITY key a second time to display
the INI TITLE 2/2 display. Repeat the process to edit the
second line.
When you are done editing the initial title, press one of the
PROGRAM keys to exit the utility mode.
Initializing the REV500’s User
Memory
At some point you may wish to clear the edited programs out
of your REV500’s user memory and restore it to factory
condition. The method for doing this is as follows:
Hold the STORE key down as you turn the POWER switch
on. The REV500 will instruct you to press the STORE key a
second time to initialize its memory. Press the STORE key
to go ahead with the initialization, or any other key if you
decide you don’t want to.
Please be aware that this procedure will initialize any system
settings and MIDI settings (such as the MIDI program
change map) as well as the contents of the user memory area.
15
Using MIDI Functions
Selecting a MIDI Channel
You can change the MIDI channel that the REV500 uses to
transmit and receive data. First, press the UTILITY key. If
necessary, press the UTILITY key again until the MIDI
CHANNEL display appears:
MIDI channel setting
Use the REV TIME control to select the desired MIDI
channel. You can set the REV500 to use any of channels 1
through 16, or select OMNI for all channels. You can also
select OFF to disable MIDI communication.
When you have made your setting, press one of the
PROGRAM keys to exit the utility mode.
Using the MIDI OUT Function
This function determines whether MIDI channel messages
received at the MIDI IN terminal will be echoed through to
the MIDI OUT terminal. You should turn this function on
when you want to connect two or more REV500s in a “daisy
chain” so they can be controlled by a single master device
such as a sequencer or keyboard.
Begin by pressing the UTILITY key. If necessary, press the
UTILITY key again until the MIDI OUT display appears:
MIDI message echo setting
Use the REV TIME control to select between the ECHO
BACK ON and ECHO BACK OFF settings. If you choose
ECHO BACK ON, the MIDI channel messages received at
the MIDI IN terminal will be echoed through to the MIDI
OUT terminal. (Other messages received at the MIDI IN
terminal will not be echoed.)
When you have made your setting, press one of the
PROGRAM keys to exit the utility mode.
16
Editing the MIDI Program Change
Map
The REV500 has a MIDI program change map that assigns
REV500 programs to MIDI program change numbers. This
feature facilitates remote selection of REV500 programs
(which are stored in eight banks numbered 1 through 25)
using MIDI Program Change messages (which can specify
program numbers from 1 through 128).
To edit the MIDI program change map, first press the
UTILITY key. If necessary, press the UTILITY key again
until the MIDI PGM TABLE display appears:
REV500 program selection
MIDI program change
number and cursor
Use the PRE DELAY control to move the cursor to the MIDI
program change number, and the REV TIME control select a
program change number whose program assignment you
want to change. Then move the cursor back to the REV500
program selection, and use the REV control again to select
the program that you want the REV500 to use when it
receives the selected program change number.
Repeat this process to change as many MIDI program
change assignments as you like. When you are done editing
the program change map, press one of the PROGRAM keys
to exit the utility mode.
If you are using a Yamaha FC5 footswitch with the
REV500’s footswitch utility function set to PGM INC/DEC,
depressing the footswitch will select REV500 programs
sequentially in the order specified by this MIDI program
change map.
Storing Data with MIDI Bulk Dumps
The REV500 is capable of transmitting its data as bulk
dumps, for storage in a sequencer or other MIDI device. To
use this function, first make sure that the REV500 is
properly connected to the device that is to receive the data,
and that the MIDI channels of the two devices match.
Next, press UTILITY. If necessary, press the UTILITY key
again until the MIDI BULK DUMP display appears:
Bulk dump type
Program selection
Use the REV TIME control to select the type of bulk dump
to be transmitted. The REV500 is capable of sending four
types of bulk data:
MIDI Bulk Dumps
Dump Type
Data transmitted
ALL
All data (system setup data, all user
programs, and program table data)
SYSTEM
All system setup data
PGM
Data for all programs, or data for a
single specified program
PGM TABLE
MIDI program table data
If you select PGM as the bulk dump type, you must select
the program to be dumped. Use the PRE DELAY control to
move the cursor to the program selection, and the REV
TIME control to change the setting. If you select ALL PGM,
the REV500 will send the data for all user programs as a
single dump. You may also select a single user program and
store it externally using an individual data dump.
When you are satisfied with your selection, press the STORE
key. The REV500 will execute the data dump.
When you are finished transmitting data, press one of the
PROGRAM keys to exit the utility mode.
