Reverb

Reverb, of course, is short for reverberation. A sound in an enclosed space will take part of its quality from the space in which it occurs. Reverb is really nothing more than an extremely complex set of delays that simulate the effect of a sound bouncing off the walls, floor, ceiling, and any other objects in the room. These numerous delays (and delays of the delays) are so close together that our ears perceive them as a wash of smeared sound instead of as distinctive sonic events.

The characteristics of reverb vary widely, depending on the room (its size, shape, composition, number of objects inside it, and so on), the position of the sound generator and the listener, and even factors such as the temperature and humidity of the air. Reverb is almost always used as a send effect and is used at least some of the time on every instrument in every type of music, for every style of mix. Cubase includes two distinct-sounding reverb plug-ins.
