Chapter 8. Effects > Creating a Master Effect

Creating a Master Effect

If you want to use reverb on more than one instrument, you don't have to insert an RV-7 for each one. Reason will also let you set up a master effect, which is cabled to the Mixer so it can be used for any instrument in the Rack.

To use an RV-7 Digital Reverb on multiple instruments

1.
Select a Mixer in your Rack and choose Create > RV7 Digital Reverb.

Reason will automatically cable the RV-7 left audio input to the first available Mixer Aux channel send (Figure 8.18).

Figure 8.18. The RV-7 is connected as a master effect here, so it can work on any instrument connected to the Mixer.


2.
Cable the RV-7 audio outputs to the left and right Aux channel returns.

All the Mixer channels can now feed into the Aux channel as little or as much signal as you want using the channel Aux Send knobs.

3.
On the RV-7, turn the Dry/Wet knob all the way to the right.

Your dry signal is in the Mixer channel, so you don't need it in your effect.

4.
In the Mixer, simply turn the Aux knob on any channel to feed signal to the master effect (Figure 8.19).

Figure 8.19. Feed a master effect in the Mixer using your instrument's Aux Send knob.


5.
Play your track to hear the reverb.
