Hey folks, Matthew Weiss, and I want to introduce to you my mixing tutorial, Mixing With Reverb.

Reverb is a fascinating subject. It is a subject that I am in love with. I think reverb is beautiful. I have been obsessed with it for years, and so this tutorial has been a long time in the making. I conceived of this tutorial about three years ago, and I started putting together some of the ideas maybe about a year and a half ago.

The reason why it’s taken so long is because reverb is a very complex subject, and it’s something that I wanted to get right. I’m such a fan of reverb, it’s the world in which the music lives. It’s the acoustic world meeting the analog world, meeting the digital world, and it all meets up on equal platforms. There’s as much beauty in a plate reverb, as there is in a digital algorithm, as there is in just a wonderful sounding space, and for certain aspects of music, sometimes a wonderful concert hall cannot be topped, and for other aspects of music, sometimes that perfect digital algorithm is exactly what you need to create the exact feel that you want.

So this tutorial is long. It’s over six hours in length. However, if you’ve seen my previous tutorials or you’re familiar with my educational style, you know that there is no filler involved. The reason why it’s so long is because I wanted to make sure that it was remarkably comprehensive. I want it so that when you’re at ground zero, and just starting to get into it, you don’t really know much about reverb at all, you can gain an understanding that will propel you through your first few years of music production, but I also wanted to make it so that even if you were a vetted person who’s over 20 years of experience, you will learn information in this video that you did not know before.


And I mean comprehensive, I mean talking about both the technical aspects of reverb, as well as the creative aspects of reverb, and then putting it into practical application through multiple examples. I go over genres like Bluegrass, I go over genres like Rap — there are two Rap examples — I go over examples like Indie Rock and Pop, and you see it all in action. How the idea of space gets completely reinvented.

Also, there’s a wonderful feature. Casey from Bricasti flew all the way out to LA just to sit down with me and have an interview, and it’s — it is some pretty in depth stuff. The man is clearly brilliant, he knows so much, and was so ready to share all of his wonderful insights, so I — the video, unedited was over an hour in length. I only cut out ten minutes, because everything that he was saying was so informative, I just didn’t want to deprive anybody of any of the information.

So everything in here is really pretty in depth, and I might say this is probably going to be the benchmark standard for understanding reverb to date, and probably for years to come. I’m putting that one out there.

So the website is I hope you’re even a fraction as excited about it as I am, because I truly love the subject, and I truly love this tutorial, so check it out, you’re going to learn a lot. Until next time.
