Let’s check out this reverb plug-in. So it’s a really simple reverb. Here’s what the track sounds like.


Cool. So reverb. I’ve never had a chance to use this before, and I finally got my hands on it, and — really warm. Super versatile. Great sounding plug-in. Let’s go through the controls here.

You’ve got a pre-delay slider, which is really simple. Then you have time, which is basically your reverb setting, and it’s going to go from really small early reflections stuff, all the way up to like, a large hall, depending on what you want to do.

Then it will — you can change the color of the verb, whether you’re making it bright, neutral, or dark, which is sort of some EQ stuff. Reverb mix, and then you have an output volume knob.

Okay, so let’s listen to this thing. I’ve got it on some acoustic guitars and some vocals, so let’s solo this acoustic guitar track.

Really natural, really versatile.

So let’s check it out on some vocals here. I’ve got it on this kind of hall-ish setting.

[vocals with reverb]

Alright, that’s neutral. Here it is on bright.

Alright. Dark.

Anyways, you get the point. Really great plug-in, I love the sound of this thing.

So yeah, enter the contest, win a copy of this thing, it’s great. Simple. You don’t have to overthink it. Just kind of throw it to where you want it and move on, which is always the best way to work.
