Add reverb bypass

Is it possible to control the reverb mix or completely disable it, similar to the compressor?

The reverb currently is built into the samples. We are experimenting with the Webaudio ConvolverNode to customize the reverb, but it’s causing my computer to overheat so it doesn’t look promising.

We emulate reverb by having separate samples for the sustained part of the note and the “release” part, which are stitched together. We do have control over the tail on this release, so that’s something we could consider having customizable.

In general we’ve been thinking more about allowing customizability with instrument settings (as opposed to having many more versions of instruments with canned settings). Also exploring creating an actual synthesizer using Webaudio oscillator nodes, to allow users to create sounds. This would obviously require a high amount of customizability to be useful.
