This installment of Foundations of Audio explains one of the most essential ingredients in audio mixing, reverb—the time it takes for sound to bounce, echo, and decay during a live performance or recording. Reverb gives a natural richness to your recordings, which is possible to reproduce. Producer and audio engineer Alex U. Case covers the acoustic, mechanical, and digital means for creating reverb, and charts the parameters (room size, density, etc.) you'll need to know to take advantage of the original recording space and enhance it in post. He then shows how to simulate reverb digitally with effects, adding timbre, texture, and contrast, and improve the sound of your mixes with a sense of space and depth.
These techniques can be practiced with the free Get in the Mix sessions, currently available for Pro Tools and Logic Pro.
This course features Get in the Mix exercise content, actual multi-track projects with built-in demonstrations, and practice material for you to use on your own, using your preferred Digital Audio Workstation or DAW. Using your DAW's video track capabilities I will guide you through automated audio examples demonstrating a number of the concepts and techniques discussed in this course, and all you need to do is press Play. Since the files are actual native high fidelity project files, purpose built for your specific DAW, you can manipulate the audio examples yourself, so feel free to pause, rewind, repeat, and zoom in on sections during the demonstrations to solidify and expand your knowledge.
Get in the Mix project files also feature additional practice tracks, so you can explore the techniques you just learned on your own. These tracks are labeled practice and their content is located at the end of the demonstration material. Before using Get in the Mix content, you must first download the package prepared for your specific DAW from this courses page in the lynda.com online training library. Inside this package you'll find the Get in the Mix files. Throughout the course I'll direct you to open these files when appropriate.
If you're viewing this course on DVD, the Get in the Mix files are included on the disk. Unlike Premium exercise content, Get in the Mix content is available to all lynda.com subscribers. If you are a Premium subscriber, you also have access to the raw audio material used to create the exercise content, as well as all other audio examples featured throughout the course. So download that content package and Get in the Mix with Foundations of Audio: reverb.
