What Electro Harmonix say....

Enter the Cathedral and surround your music with the aria of divine presence. True stereo reverbs reveal your inspirations while programmability recalls your spirit of creation. The Cathedral is the performer's mantra creating the perfect space for your instrument or voice while offering an elegance that takes your music to a higher ground.


Special Features of the Cathedral Stereo Reverb:


• Two SPRING modes including the Spring reverb taken from the Holy Grail and a new Accutronics Spring tank emulation.

• Top notch, professional HALL, ROOM, PLATE and REVERSE reverb algorithms.

• GRAIL FLERB mode is the Holy Grail Flerb with greater adjustability.

• ECHO mode makes the Cathedral into a versatile two second digital delay.

• Up to two Seconds of Pre-Delay, with Feedback allow for reverberant echoes.

• Tap Tempo Footswitch sets the pre-delay time with your foot.

• Instantaneous infinite reverb by pressing and holding the TAP FSW.

• Tone controls on the reverbs allow for further refinement of the sound.

• True stereo in and out.

• Ultra low noise and transparent signal path

• Studio quality A/D and D/A converters.

• Save and load up to 8 presets: 1 preset for each different mode.




GRAIL SPRING — This mode is the Spring setting taken directly from the Holy Grail. The Cathedral gives you additional control over the Reverb Time and the Tone of the spring sound; both of these parameters are preset on the Holy Grail. If you would like to set up your Cathedral’s GRAIL SPRING mode to sound exactly like a Holy Grail spring, turn the REVERB TIME and DAMPING/TONE knobs to 12 o’clock and the FEEDBACK and PRE-DELAY knobs down to zero (full counter-clockwise). Set the BLEND knob wherever you like for your ideal wet/dry mix.


ACCU SPRING — Is a new spring reverb model designed specifically for the Cathedral. For ACCU SPRING mode, we emulated a medium decay, 17” Accutronics spring tank with 6 springs. You can adjust both the Tone of the ACCU SPRING and the Reverb Time to suit your exact needs.


HALL— uses a smooth and lush sounding reverb algorithm. You can set the Reverb Time to obtain the exact decay rate that works perfectly for your music. The DAMPING/TONE knob works as a damping control in HALL mode allowing you to control the sound of the reverb from both a tonal and spatial perspective.


ROOM — is medium sized room algorithm, similar to HALL mode except meant to produce a smaller sounding space. The DAMPING knob again will allow you to control the sound of the reverb from a tonal and spatial perspective.


PLATE — is an emulation of a metal plate reverb commonly found in high end recording studios during the 1960’s and 70’s. The Cathedral’s Plate reverb is a very smooth, tonally balanced sounding reverb. Works great on many different instruments and is wonderful on vocals. The DAMPING knob will again allow you to control the sound of the reverb from a tonal and spatial perspective.


REVERSE— Reverse Reverb is an emulation of the reverse reverb trick commonly performed in studios, where a note’s reverb fades-in, in reverse of course, before the note is actually struck. The Cathedral works in real time and cannot create backwards reverb for a note before it is actually played so the REVERSE reverb in the Cathedral will create reverse reverb after a note is played. The length of time between playing a note and hearing the reverse reverb completely fade in is set by the REVERB TIME knob (in addition to PRE-DELAY). The further you turn REVERB TIME clockwise the longer the note will take to fade-in. In REVERSE mode, the DAMPING/TONE knob works as a tone control, allowing you to increase or decrease the high frequency response of your reverb.


GRAIL FLERB — This mode is the Flerb setting taken directly from the Holy Grail. On the Holy Grail, the rate of modulation and resonance of the flanger block is fixed but the Cathedral brings out these parameters onto their own knobs. The REVERB TIME knob
controls the flanger’s modulation rate. The DAMPING/TONE knob controls the flanger’s resonance.


ECHO — turns your Cathedral into a digital echo. You can tap in the delay time using the TAP/INIFINITE footswitch, or dial it in using the PRE-DELAY knob. Set the number of echo repeats by using the FEEDBACK knob. The DAMPING/TONE control can be used to either low pass or high pass filter the echo repeats. The REVERB TIME knob can be used to smear the repeats so that it sounds more like a reverb than an echo effect.
