Everything we hear involves the direct source of the sound, as well as the sound as reflected off of the environment. We’ve learned to interpret these reflected sounds in a way that tells us something about our immediate surroundings, even in the dark. Take away these reflections and the sound will be perceived as alarmingly dead – as anyone who’s been inside an anechoic chamber will confirm, we need sonic reflections to give a sound a sense of place and reality. Over the years, although the recording technologies which produce ‘modern’ music have changed considerably, the basic concept is still the same: you will aim to create a sense of space to help convey the emotion and energy of your music.
Tverb, the latest plugin from Eventide, is a room reverb modelled on the famous Meistersaal at Berlin’s Hansa Tonstudios. Developed with legendary producer, musician, and engineer Tony Visconti, Tverb provides an extremely customizable room reverb with some unique techniques and features, including the technique used on David Bowie’s ‘Heroes’ vocal recording.
We took a look at Eventide’s Tverb in our latest Plugin of the Week – watch it above and make sure you subscribe to our YouTube channel for more tutorials and live events.
