Reverb A Settings

Cubase's Reverb A plug-in (Figure 14.21) includes parameters common to most digital reverb effects. If you take the time to become familiar with how it works and how the parameters change the sound of the reverb, you will have an easier time understanding lots of other reverb effects.

  • Predelay mimics one of the characteristics of reverb in an actual room, where there is usually a slight delay between the sound being created and the start of the reverb. This delay occurs because the sound has to travel to at least one wall or other surface and then travel back to our ears before we hear the start of the reverb. This delay can be anywhere from a couple of milliseconds in a small room to much longer in a big room.

  • Filter changes the timbre of the reverb. The High Cut filter is used to make the “room” sound more or less bright. A room with deep shag carpet on the floor and curtains on one side will sound different than a brick-walled room with a hardwood floor. Using High Cut to filter out the high-end sound will make the reverb sound more like the carpeted, “darker” room. The Low Cut filter is useful for cutting out low-end rumble that usually sounds pretty bad when fed to a reverb.

  • Roomsize controls the character of the reverb by mimicking the timbre differences between larger and smaller acoustic spaces.

  • Reverb Time controls the length of time the reverb lasts. The Reverb A plug-in reverb time can range from very short to very, very long.
