I’m just interested in discussing people’s workflow with Reverb when working in Renoise. I’ve been trying to refine my approach a bit with reverb lately, and am curious to contrast with the approach of other users.
I’m more interested in Reverb as a mix tool, rather than as a wild effect – that is, reverb used for a sense of space , not reverb for an obvious spaced-out wash, etc. (because the latter is quite easy to achieve, whereas the former is much more difficult to get right, in my experience).
1 - what reverb are you using in renoise to create a sense of space around your instruments? do you ever use the native Renoise reverbs, ‘reverb’ and ‘mpreverb’ ?
2 - when using reverb, are you always putting it on a send track and sending things to it, or are you just inserting it on each channel you want it on?
3 - if you’re using sends, are you also EQ’ing the reverb on the send?
Would love to hear the approach you guys are using and liking. I’d post my specific approach to it…but I don’t really have one currently, I’ve tried numerous different approaches and currently I’m not quite getting the depth / space imaging I’m wanting with it, which is why Id like to discuss it further here. I will say that I own too many reverb plugins, and have realized it’s less about *which one* and more about *how any one of them is used*. I’ve got all the Valhalla’s (I honestly find them a little over the top, tbh – I feel like they’re too obvious / loud, and even when dialed in very subtly, they kind of ‘warp’ the sound – it’s hard to describe but I can’t shake it, after tons of testing and trial & error). I also have Arts Acoustic, which I like a lot, and I’ve gotten a lot of good, subtle results from Uhbik-A.
let me know your approach, thanks!
