There are indescribable differences in tone and playability not captured by the simple factual descriptions of their features. The same is true for reverb processors, and we audio engineers need to develop an ear for the nuances that distinguish them.

The last few videos have surveyed the most essential parameters that we will specify as we tailor our reverbs to our production, but it's worth recalling the technologies used to create reverb. Remember, we walk through a list of acoustic reverse like room tracks and chambers, mechanical reverbs like springs and plates, and digital reverbs whose algorithms can create any sort of reverb from real to fictitious.
