What Is Reverb In Music? A Beginners Guide

beginner effects reverb Jul 25, 2021

Some people enjoy mixing with huge amounts of reverb, others prefer having just a touch of it. 

One of the great things about mixing with reverb is that it lets you beat the sonic limitations of recording in a small home studio.

From turning your dry vocals into powerful, Adele like ones, to just lifting your drums a notch.

Reverb is probably the most popular effect to use in mixing music. Too much reverb will ruin a mix and is a tell-tale give away of an amateur mix.

Using reverb in music is something that seems straightforward on the face of it but once you start to use it, you might be surprised to find how quickly your mix starts to lose definition and turns muddy. Reverb in music is great for adding depth, width and height to a mix and is a skill you need to learn if you want your mixes to sound professional.

In this video, I’m going to explain the main reverb parameters; decay or reverb time, pre-delay, EQ damping, EQ filters, diffusion and density.

If you want to go more in depth to cover every single reverb parameter and delay too, then sign up to my EQ Essentials waitlist because there’s also going to be an Effects and Compression course to accompany it! 🙌
