Course Overview



Do your mixes lack ambience? Do the instruments feel disconnected? Do they lack the all-important depth? Reverb and delay are two of the most valuable effects available to you as a mixing engineer. They can help create a beautiful-sounding performance space for instruments to sit in and can be used creatively to add texture/ interest to a mix. When used correctly, these effects can take a mix to the next level. This course aims to provide students with an understanding of the different types of reverb and delay available to them within their DAW. Students will also receive advice on how to use these processors effectively. By the end of this lesson series, students will have been provided with a complete guide to reverb and delay, giving them the confidence to employ it in their own mixes.
