Fantastic for synths in a studio environment
JanMonk, 04.05.2021
I use the Specular Tempus for my synths (Sub37, NTS1, MicroFreak) in the studio. Both the reverbs and the delays sound lush and absolutely gorgeous. Coming from a (now broken) Lexicon multi-FX unit, this one sounds a lot more modern but with the same "quality vibe".

I initially bought a second hand Strymon Big Sky to replace my defective Lexicon, but couldn't get used to it - handling and sound wise. So I sold it and bought the Specular Tempus based on some example video's I found online. For me the Specular Tempus' algorithms have a lot more instant wow factor than the Big Sky. Especially for long and lush reverbs, but I also found the "standard" (Room etc) sounding very good and instantly usable.

The SpecLab software is very easy to use. The user interface looks a bit outdated, but it's installed easily and works quick and intuitive. When using the device without the software, you can only switch banks upwards. Meaning you have to skip quite some banks before getting to the previous one. Unless you buy the 3-way switch, that is. For that reason only 4 stars for handling.

That said, as I only use this unit in the studio, and usually only have 1 or 2 presets active during a session, this is not a deal breaker for me. When performing live that might be different. All in all it's a very, very good FX unit. Highly recommended.

Very interesting reverb
Tugdual, 06.02.2021
Casing: metallic and very robust
Sound: very nice and soft reverb; the shimmer (which is over used nowadays) is also subtile enough. With the infinity algo you can create drones. If you're looking for a super wide lexicon like effect, this reverb is the right choice. There are also a number of delays and a some modulation that extend the territory of applications.
Handling: while the sound is good, I don't find the use of the pedal very easy. Starting with flat buttons (I prefer the round shape), the tricky use of long press or combination of buttons, the slow response of the pedal leaving you in some occasions puzzled about the state, there is something a bit messy about the interface.
Conclusion: finding a good reverb is not an easy thing. This one definitely has its own sound which is very good and will cover nicely reverb and delay territories. It is a keeper despite the disappointing interface. If you're into VSTs and want to save 350€ go check the Valhalla vintage verb that is similar.

Nice sound quality, ok build quality, but falls short a little on the handling and operation. Different beast soundwise compared to my Ventris and compared to my Avalanche Run v2, so it does make sense to have all of them, as each excels in different area.

It is not as powerful as the Big Sky, but has a certain feeling and charm to it that is almost irrestible...
