How to apply delay as ambience and special effects
- [Voiceover] Okay let's talk about the best ways to use…Echo, and Delay, and Reverb.…And talk about the differences.…And some of the criteria I use to determine just the right…space for the stuff I'm working on.…And those kind of cues, those audio cues that point…me in the right direction sometimes.…So I've turned off, you can see down here below,…all of the returns for my effects for the entire mix,…just to play this dry as I first heard it…and I wanna show you something interesting.…
Let's listen, this is Peppina "Young Hearts"…(music playing)…Okay so I wanna draw your attention to this little guy…right here, I'll solo it.…(buzzing)…So with that little track that one innocent looking track,…the producer has dictated to me the kind of ambiance…this song requires.…
It has to be big, expansive, lush, dreamy,…all these adjectives that to me equate…with a long lush reverb.…And the depth of delays.…So this is duet and the first voice we hear is a male voice.…Let's hear it dead dry.…That's what I got.…Now let me open up the digital reverbs.…
