The back panel explained: 

The AD 480 Reverb RE algorithm is inspired by the sound of the sought after studio reverb units that were only available for the big budget recording studios and major touring acts.

The AD 480 Reverb RE is capable of simulating a great variety of acoustic spaces and its parameters allow to shape the sound in many different ways. The Parameter 'size' practically provides an 'algorithm' - a set of reflections '" from a continuous range of values corresponding to a certain room size and thereby offering a lot more freedom than other reverbs with fixed 'algorithms' (room sizes). Powerful filters shape the sonic color of the reverb tail and the 'cross feed' function enables to control the directional behavior of the reverb tail according to the panorama angle of the input signal. The unique 'dim' parameter determines the spatial dimensions of the reverb without influencing its first reflection pattern. At this parameter's maximum the reverb is identical to the AD 480 Reverb for iOS.

The back panel of the AD 480 Reverb RE offers stereo outputs for the mixed signal as well as for wet and dry separated, providing great routing flexibility. The vast number of CV-inputs allow to automate and modulate almost all of the AD 480 Reverb REs parameters and support discovering entirely new ways to creatively use reverb in any kind of audio production.
