Reverb has always been the main reverb producers reach for for their mixes. Creating specific spaces for your music to swim in is accomplished by the use of reverb.

In most cases producers will use their own favoured reverb plugins but I have to be honest DAW manufacturers have come a long way in providing quality stocks plugins and in this tutorial I am using Cubase’s Revelation plugin to create a lush reverb effect you can use on your mixes.

In the video I use a wonderful folk vocal recording and show you how to create a lush and smooth reverb effect. I explain how Revelation works and how best to use it to achieve different reverb textures.
