Chapter 11. Applying Effects > Using the Reverb Effect

Using the Reverb Effect

Reverb is short for reverberation, which is what happens to sound in an enclosed space. The sound bounces off the surfaces of the space, decaying a bit at each bounce. It's like a long, smeared-out echo, without any distinct repetition of the original sound. A judicious amount of reverb can sweeten any recording. It creates a sort of acoustic glow that can create just the right atmosphere for a song, and it can cover up some of the imperfections in a mediocre performance. In the real world, reverberation depends on the size and shape of the room and the materials the walls and ceiling are made from. GarageBand's reverb effect can mimic the reverberation you would hear in a variety of real performing spaces.
