Gain a strong understanding of natural and artificial reverb from the ground up and learn how to apply them in the context of your mix.

Join Jono Buchanan, an Apple-certified Logic Pro instructor, composer, sound designer and mix engineer, for a closer look at one of the most popular and widely used effects in a producer’s arsenal: reverb.

Over the course of nearly two hours, you’ll build a strong understanding of natural and artificial reverb from the ground up, learning the fundamentals of space and reflection and how they can be applied in the context of a mix.

No matter if you’re recording in a professional studio or your bedroom, the sound you get will be informed by the acoustic qualities of the space. Normally, measures are taken to reduce as much of the reverberation in the room as possible in order to get a dry sound that you can have more control over. With a good clean recording in the bag, reverb can then be added to locate your sound in almost any space imaginable, whether it’s a concert hall, a cathedral, or smaller room settings.

When applied correctly, reverb provides a sense of depth and thickness, and allows the natural harmonics of a sound source to shine through a mix. With too little reverb, your sounds can end up dry, flat and lifeless; with too much they’ll come across washed out and cavernous. Knowing how to get the balance right is crucial when producing music, and that’s where we can help!

In The Science of Sound: Reverb, Jono shows you how to design a reverb to fit your track, diving into the parameters of some well known algorithmic and convolution plugins. You’ll see him play around with decay, damping, size, diffusion, modulation and EQ parameters, and hear how they affect vocals, instruments and drums.

At the end of this course you’ll also know how to use a reverb plugin as either an insert or an auxiliary effect, and learn how to get creative by adding delays and filters to the chain.

This course is part of the Science of Sound series, which goes deeper into important music production topics that you’ll use again and again in your own projects. Understanding the fundamentals behind concepts like reverb, equalization, compression, delay and the way in which we as engineers and listeners perceive sound will allow you to approach your productions with a greater confidence, purpose and know-how.

No PhD needed, the science-y parts are explained by our awesome educators in a way that anyone can understand!
