iZotope Ozone Reverb – how to create a mix reverb video tutorial explains how to use iZotope’s reverb plugin to create the master reverb for your mixes.

Creating a mix reverb that all instruments can benefit from requires a different mindset to creating a reverb effect for colour.

Sculpting the reverb to denote a given space is often harder to achieve than using a type-specific reverb (eg: using a plate for vocals). Type-specific reverbs are perfect for processing specific sounds but not as adaptable for creating spaces. The space’s qualities need to be understood to best manipulate the reverb’s parameters. It’s not very useful to select a hall reverb and have zero pre-delay as that negates the whole concept of creating a space for all sounds to sit in. A basic understanding of how we perceive space in the virtual domain will take you a long way in structuring your reverbs.

In this iZotope Ozone Reverb – how to create a mix reverb video I show you how to use iZotope Ozone’s reverb to create a lush mix reverb for use with vocals. I run a female vocal take through the various parameters of the reverb effect and explain how each change creates a different type of reverb effect. I explain how iZotope Ozone’s reverb works and how best to use it on both vocals and the master mix.
