QUICK TIPS

If you want to add a lit­tle ‘dust’ to your re­verb chains, try a bitcrusher af­ter your re­verb. Set­ting this at 12-bit with a sprin­kling of down­sam­pling can take the ‘pris­tine’ edge off modern plugin re­verbs.

Look­ing to add a gen­tle pitch wob­ble to long re­verbs but don’t have a plugin which of­fers pitch mod­u­la­tion? Bounce your re­verb as a ‘wet only’ au­dio file and load it into your sam­pler.

Tone-wise, vin­tage re­verbs are of­ten less trans­par­ent and pris­tine than their modern dig­i­tal equiv­a­lents. If your cho­sen plugin doesn’t feature its own EQ, use a plugin af­ter the re­verb to con­tour bass and tre­ble. Also, try other plug­ins such as sat­u­ra­tors and tape em­u­la­tors to fur­ther colour your re­verb re­turns.
