While reverb Time, Pre-Delay, Wet/Dry Mix, and the spectral manipulation of Reverb Time…are common, nearly universal parameters, you'll see other terms that are less well defined…and aren't particularly consistent from one make and model of reverb to another.…Terms like Diffusion, Density, Room Size, and similar words sometimes appear as adjustable…parameters on our reverbs.…Remember, all of the parameters are there to give us some ways recording engineers to…interact with qualities of the reverb, but reverb is itself such a complex and musical…sound, and we savored it in part by listening to fine details and attributes not captured…by the core reverb parameters.…
The number of individual contributing reflections within the impulse response is sometimes an audible trait.…Surfaces, like the wall behind me, are common design features in concert halls and recording studios.…These highly articulated, geometrically complex surfaces come in many forms, all with the…goal of breaking up the sound.…
These techniques can be practiced with the free Get in the Mix sessions, currently available for Pro Tools and Logic Pro.
