New reverb guide!

by Kim Lajoie on December 13, 2013

Well, how about that. My reverb guide is finally finished.

It took me much longer to write this than I expected. It turns out there’s a lot to know about reverb. Who would have guessed?

Anyway, 6500+ words later, this is the definitive record of everything I know about mixing with reverb. Short of actually going into the internal design of reverb processors (which you don’t need to know), this is your one-stop-shop to becoming a reverb boss. It covers my four primary characteristics of reverb. It describes all the common settings, and then goes into detail about how to use those settings to create the right ambience for your mix. It also covers a variety of different ways multiple reverbs can be combined, and how to get the best results when combining reverbs with other effects.

The knowledge in this one is pretty much gold for anyone who’s mixing. Which, if you’re reading this, is probably you.
