Vocal Reverb Tricks to spice up your mix

Commonly used in the field of Audio Engineering, Music Production, and Sound Design, reverb is a sound effect that simulates the reflections of sound in a physical space, creating a sense of depth and ambiance.

Below given are just a few tips to help you improve the quality of your mix using reverb. The important thing is to experiment and find what works best for you and your mix.

1. Automate the reverb. You may generate dynamic and fascinating soundscapes by automating the reverb levels. You may, for example, enhance reverb during the breaks to give a feeling of space or decrease it during the sections where words are placed closer together to bring the parts closer together. Automating reverb on vocals may add depth and intrigue to your mix, and it's a great way for managing reverb intensity over time.

Here's how you can automate reverb on vocals:

1. Set up a reverb on a separate auxiliary track and send your lead vocal to the reverb track.

2. Record the automation: Record the automation by manually adjusting the reverb send fader to increase or decrease the reverb level at different points in time. You can also use the automation pencil tool to draw the automation curve.
