in ableton i use the track delay to calibrate it with the mix at 50% or so, so i can hear the transients, then i turn up to 100% wet for the record.  Hadnt thought of a way in Bitwig, which Im using now, I shall try your suggestion :)

I third Valhalla.  Valhalla sounds amazing.  I've only tried the demo but I'll probably get it.  

 

I'm rocking Logic, so Space Designer is where it's at.  But sometimes, too many IR reverbs sounds almost too spacious. 

 

I have minimum 4 reverbs on sends - Long, Short, DrumVerb, and Snare.  

 

I like big wet spacious tracks, so most sounds get sent to Long, which is usually a giant Space Designer patch.  

 

Bass gets sent to Short or nothing at all; sometimes live-tracked guitars get sent to Short, if Long sounds too muddy. Short is a short reverb with <5ms pre-delay.  

 

Drums go to DrumVerb (heh), but usually only ever so slightly.  Usually no pre-delay.  It's just for high-end shimmer and buss glue.  

 

Snare goes to Snare, which may be just about anything.  Whatever the track needs.  Big and metallic in a dubsteppy track.  Warm and quiet in a chillout tune.  Maybe spring reverb in a breaks track.

 

I high-pass my reverbs at 200hz or more, and may take off some of the top end.  Clutter in the mix builds up quick with too much reverb.

 

I also use an Euroracked Erbe-Verb, which is an awesome DSP reverb module.  

 

Anyone here make their own IRs for convolution?  I'm super interested in trying.  


If it sounds good, it is good.

I've just picked up an Eventide Space. I'm sorry NI Reverbs... huge difference in quality, depth, and transparency. Wow. Highly recommended.

Thanks for Matt and others too sharing some good tips here! Some I've already started using in my productions :)

 

I also tried Valhalla demo version and decided to purchase it immediately after hearing how good it actually does sound.. So I fourth Valhalla here :)

Haha I just read my post on here about demoing Valhalla and chuckled.  

 

After demoing Valhalla for like 4 days I bought both Room and Vintage Verb  :lol: .  Both are amazing, and each is like a different flavor.  I'm sure i would have been fine with just one but... damn.  Those are by far the best sounding algorithmic software reverbs I've ever used.  They have fully replaced Space Designer on all my busses on my primary template.  Maybe I'll go back someday but... Valhalla all the way for now.  

 

As a side note... Their simple frequency shifting delay (here) is excellent, totally free, and takes real-time knob tweaking/automation really, really well.

I was just about to start a new thread about delays.. Let's continue there!
