Many reverb plug-ins include some form of modulation effect. Dialling in small amounts can help make reverbs sound deeper and wider though not all reverbs have this functionality such as Waves Abbey Road Plates. To be able to modulate your reverbs you need to insert a modulation plug-in, such as Waves Mono Mod, into the chain.
In this free video tutorial, brought to you with the support of Waves, we show you a simple way to de-mud your reverb effects. Reverbs have a tendency of cluttering up a mix but don’t blame the length of the tails, often it’s the overall tone of the reverb that is upsetting the balance. A super simple way to address this is by reaching for the tone controls in a reverb plug-in or better still, using a dedicated EQ plug-in in the effects return.
In this video we show you how to not only setup the gated reverb on an effects return but also how to change the tone and attitude of the send that feeds the overall gated reverb effect. Gated reverbs lend themselves very nicely to snare tracks, watch this free video to hear this effect in action using Waves GTR Stomp Boxes and C1 Gate.
In this free video tutorial, brought to you with the support of Waves, we show you a very simple way of injecting some instant attitude into your reverb effects. Break free from the comfort of natural sounding reverbs, experiment with this creative technique as the results are explosive. In this video we show you how you can make a safe sounding 808 snare sample jump out of the mix using a reverb feeding into a distortion plug-in.
The idea of applying plug-ins to your tracks is to make things sound better but we've all overdone it at some point and without checking the before with the after we really can’t be sure we’ve achieved what we set out to.

In this video for Pro Tools Expert, Technical Editor James Ivey shows you how to use the Universal Audio Apollo interfaces as hardware effects processors for use with your analogue mixing console.
Mixing small amounts of short reverbs is a great way of making space in a mix and also a great way to create separation between instruments in a deep and emotive way without mixes becoming muddy with long reverb tails.
Reverb is, most likely, the most used effect in audio production and there are so many different types and flavours to choose from. Knowing how reverb types differ by sound and characteristics is key to selecting the right reverb type for the job. Take the reverb quiz to see if you can tell the difference between different reverb types such as Spring, Plate & Hall on an electric guitar loop - Identify six different reverb types
In this free video tutorial, courtesy of Eli Krantzberg from our sister site Logic Pro Expert, Eli shows you how he creates drum room ambience using TSAR-1 reverb plug-in by Softube. Watch the video to hear a few examples of how Eli sets the parameters in TSAR-1 to get a nice warm drum sound in his not so great sounding low-ceilinged basement studio.
