Making your own custom reverb

Making your own custom reverb

This article is going to be a long stretch and a daring one I might say. If you think in terms of "room" and "size" the first thing you think of is an effect called a reverb. Since a reverb creates "space" right? While using a reverb is basically something everyone has used, tried to manipulate and so on. Let me say this: did you know that you can mimic a reverb with a bunch of delays in a sequence? While most people tend to overlook the idea, it is quite similar to a plain spring reverb. Since in theory, a spring reverb (technically) passes on the sound over a spring, and the spring starts to "move" (tremor) based on the sound. This causes the artifact of a repeating sound that slightly gets altered by the frequency of the spring itself. While there are plenty of ways to mimic this behavior I am going to throw in one simple idea that will reshape the sound in a different way. Just keep in mind while a sound is traveling in a towards a specific object the composition of that object will have an impact on what the result of the rebound sound will be like. Anyway, enough about the intro lets start making a unique type of effect that could be a unique type of reverb while doing so.

Creative Delay effects

Creative Delay effects

Welcome to another tutorial about Propellerhead Reason. Today I will dive in to setting up a wide range of different creative effects using Digital Delays or using Digital Delays in combination with different utilities that come as stock devices. While there are rack extensions that do something similar, the idea with these creative setups is to show case what some crafty wiring can do for you while setting up an effect chain. It is more or less a combination of thinking inside the box, while thinking outside the box more or less. So if you have the proper mindset to be creative, and you are up for the challenge, then maybe these type of articles can be useful. If you think it is a waste of your time (because it is too much work), then just don't bother reading any further and just VST your way using effects in Reason.

Digital Delay Line Overclocked

Welcome to another article on Reasonexperts about the Digital Delay Line. In this topic we'll be putting things in high gear and go mental on just a simple thing called the Digital Delay Line. In this article I will go pretty heavy on stuff called modulation or routing. If this is becoming too much, don't worry, just have a couple of aspirins standing by since you will most likely going to need them. Note: All files posted in this article are made with Reason 4. All these files can also be ...

Digital Delay Line

A digital delay line is something we have probably touched since Reason version 1. Yeah, it is that old. However a delay effect by itself never gets old, so I thought it would be fun to grab an old device like the DDL-1 Digital Delay Line by the knobs and throw some new ideas and twists against it while we are covering this simplistic effect. What is a digital delay Lets start with explaining the basic concept of a delay effect. A delay is an effect where the in coming audio is being repeated over .
