routing. The five configurations appear on the front panel as follows:
C1
C2
C4
C5
C3
Effect Module Size
Effect Configuration 1 uses one effect module because both processing engines are combined for maximum processing
power. This larger module allows you to have longer delay times and more dense sounding reverbs. Effect configurations
2-5 use Half size effect modules which allow you to use two effects per program

Reverb is the perfect effect for adding dimension to any recording or live application where you need to emulate the size and
shapes of different types of rooms. The following explains the parameters that are available in the Reverb effects.
Note: When Reverb effects are used in Effect Configuration 1 (which is a Whole effect module) larger and more
dense sounding Reverbs can be attained.
Pre Delay
This parameter controls the length of time before the reverb reflections
are heard. Range is from 0 to 99 ms.
Decay
This parameter controls the decay length (reverb time) of the reverberation. Range is from 1 to 10.
Damping
This parameter controls the high frequency decay of the reverb effect
and ranges from 1 to 10.
Diffusion
This parameter controls the reverb smoothness and ranges from 1 to 10.
Level
This parameter allows you to set the overall level of the selected effect.
Range is from 0 to 99.

The S-100 also offers an additional menu of hard to find effects including: a Vocoder effect which takes a vocal signal (using
the Left input) and superimposes it onto another input signal such as a keyboard (using the Right input) to produce a vocal
effect that sounds more robotic than human. This menu also provides you with a Ring modulator that can produce mathematically-based harmonic effects. And last but not least, we have also included a state-of-the-art Compressor that is ideal for
making any signal stand out with the right amount of compression. The parameters for these effects are as follows:
This parameter sets the modulation frequency of the Ring Modulator

effect. Range is from 1 to 99.
Threshold
This parameter sets threshold level of the compressor. Range is 60 to 0.
Ratio
This parameter sets the compressor ratio. Range is from 1 to 19
and ∞.
This parameter controls the attack time of the compressor. Range is
