AMS RMX16 500 Series Digital Reverb Module

500 Series module version of the world’s first microprocessor-controlled, full-bandwidth digital reverberator
MFR# RMX 16 500 series module

Product Description

The AMS RMX16 500 Series Digital Reverb Module puts the lush, vibrant tones of the world’s first digital reverberator right at your fingertips in a compact, 500 series format. Equipped with all 18 of the original reverb programs, the AMS RMX16 module is the perfect tool for adding depth, space or vintage 80s vibe to any track.


Originally released in 1981, the AMS RMX16 was the world’s first microprocessor-controlled, full-bandwidth digital reverberator. Used on countless hit records over the years, from Phil Collins and Peter Gabriel to U2 and Radiohead, the RMX16 is one of the most unique-sounding studio signal processors ever made. From lush halls and dense plates to special effects like chorus and echo, or even the iconic Non-Lin ‘gated reverb’ sound—the RMX16 does it all.


The new AMS RMX16 500 series digital reverberation module includes all nine of the original reverb programs, including Ambience, Room A1, Hall C1, Plate A1, Hall B3, Chorus, Echo, Non-Lin 2, and Reverse 1. This new RMX16 also features the additional nine programs stored in the bar code wand, including Delay, Freeze, Hall A1, Non-Lin 1, Image P1, Plate B1, Reverse 2, Room A0, and Room B1.


While the new AMS RMX16 500 series digital reverberation module features the same classic look and feel as the original, it’s also sporting a few new features under the hood. The new RMX16 offers independent control over every parameter using 28 buttons and an all-new rotary push encoder for quick and easy selection. Two new buttons include dedicated Save and Recall buttons, designed to significantly speed up your workflow. The new large OLED display offers super-simple navigation and visual feedback when programming sounds. And with the new wet-dry mix blend function, you can quickly dial in the perfect amount of depth and space for any track.

Please take these comments with a grain of salt. I am really just being as honest as I can. In 1984, I purchased a Lexicon 200, that was the three space "Model 200 Digital Reverberator" released by Lexicon shortly after they released the Model 224. I recently sold it and now terribly regret that decision. All of the algorithms in this reverb are no better, and perhaps worse than an old Yamaha SPX90. Wha Wha Wha Wha,,, woo woo woo woo woo woo. Absolutely horrible reverb tails when they hang out naked at the end of a musical phrase or rest. I was devastated at how miserable this thing sounded, however… and this is a strange “however”…... Ironically, it does have one mode that sounds halfway decent, and that is the Ambience Mode. I decided to keep it and use it for live mixing. If you are doing any kind of mixing with a DAW, by all means purchase Altiverb.

Extra glue for your tracks in the mix. Wonderful sound. Transparent nature when used on vocals. Not cloudy.

Working with this is like having a bunch of shooting stars enter your mix. It’s fun to navigate and the sound is superb. I’ve been printing echo (my time delay chart has really come in handy), chorus, nonlin on drums, and using the awesome sounding plate, hall and ambience on vocals. It’s brilliant.

Sits great in the mix

By JohnZona 8 on October 20, 2021

Sounds great, easy to use, and more creatively inspiring than a plugin. Great piece!

By James W on December 1, 2020

It’s great that this is available in such a format that’s reliable and great sounding, not only that, it has all the sounds that were available from the earlier years and stayed true to their unique sound. I’m glad I purchased two to run in tandem with each other, this should create a tapestry I’ve been looking for, thank you AMS!

I bought 3 pieces of gear and new monitors when I took over RPM. The RMX 16, DMX 16 and a Quantec. We trippled the gross bookings in the year that followed and the AMS gear was in high demand. They were about $10,000 back then and well worth it.

This was my first experience buying something from Vintage King (although I surf the "used" categories on the website frequently!), and, despite being on the other side of the world, I had absolutely no trouble and everything went very smoothly.
Phil T.
The speed of delivery exceeded my expectations! I was VERY pleased that my shipment arrived in time for a scheduled vocal tracking session. The packing insured that my order arrived safely. And the sales staff responded quickly to questions regarding the product.

My experience with Vintage King was excellent. The order was here fast considering it was out of stock. The sales person had SKB send it to me directly and I couldn't have been more pleased.

From the minute I placed my order I was kept well-informed through each step in your process. Even though I was buying a comparatively modest piece of gear, your attention to detail made me feel like I was purchasing a six-figure mixing desk.
