What option do some Reverbs have that can help adjust for possible bass buildup?
Separate high-frequency and low-frequency Decay controls
Ab uilt-in modulation effect
Separate controls for Attack & Decay

How can you separate the dry sound from the reverb for a little more clarity?
Crank up the Decay Time
Bypass the reverb
Insert the reverb on a separate audio channel from the dry signal
Increase the Reverb's Pre-Delay (Initial Reflection) Time
What are typical delay times for Doubling?
Around 1–2 milliseconds
Around 500–750 milliseconds
Around 15–20 milliseconds
Around 100–150 milliseconds
What effects are created with delays?
Chorusing, Flanging, Auto-Tuning, Overdrive

Doubling, Chorusing, Flanging, Echo
Overdrive, Distortion, Compression
What is Rt60?
A classic digital reverb unit
The time it takes for a reverberant sound field to decay by 60 dB
The number of seconds a reverberant sound field lasts
The number of seonds of Pre-Delay in a reverberant sound field
What is a typical range for a classic Slap Echo effect?

Around 1–2 milliseconds or less
Around 25–50 milliseconds or less
Around 15–25 milliseconds or less
On a chorus effect, what are the Rate & Depth controls made for?

Set the speed and intensity of the periodic LFO Modulation
Adjust the attack time of each nore that's being chorused
Set the mix between the dry and wet sound
What are the three components of a reverberant sound field?
Modulation, Feedback, Threshold
Attack, Sustain, Release
Initial Delay, Early Reflections, Later Reverberation (Tail)
Hall, Room, Chamber
What does Feedback add to a Flanging effect?
A vintage compression characteristic
A stronger metallic resonance
A repeating echo effect
What kind of mixes are likely to use Reverb and Delay-based effects?
Mostly rock mixes
Reverb only on classical, Delay only on pop
Mostly Electro and pop mixes
How is a Send & Return hookup done for Reverb?
Reverb inserted in Master channel strip, dry/wet mix set to taste
Reverb inseted in an Aux, Sends from individual channels feed that Aux through a Bus
All answers are correct
Reverb inserted in each channel strip, dry/wet mix set to taste
What tracks might be assigned different reverbs in a mix?
Each individual vocal harmony, since they usually have different melodies
Every track in a mix should be assigned its own reverb
Drums and Vocals, since certain reverbs may sound good on one but not the other
