In this episode of MakeMineMusic, Marc Daniel Nelson shares his insight and thoughts on Predelay on reverbs!
Predelay on reverb is when the reverb starts after the source you are giving it to; it is the delay between the dry signal and the reverb.
An example of this is putting a one hundred millisecond delay on the reverb send of vocals. It will then take one hundred milliseconds for that reverb to start, meaning that you are creating a depth imagery in the stereo imagery, which is allowing the vocal to sound forward and the reverb behind it.
If you juice up the Predelay, the higher you go, the more the reverb sounds like it is distancing itself. This can be used as a trick to get depth and size from your vocals.
Join Marc as he breaks down a song and demonstrates different settings to create depth and reflection!
