Modulated Reverb: a thread for those who like to ride its cloudy goodness
This is a thread for those that really like Modulated Reverb. Seeing as how many people have picked up a RV-5 in the last years, I'm guessing that might be quite a few folks! Also, Strymon coming out with a mod section on their BSR and Hardwire having a Modulate Mode on their reverb as well.
Anyways, here are some clips I made in the past 2 days:
This is a clip I did, using two different guitar loops into Ableton Live's Reverb (on a Return track, so it's in parallel with the dry sound). I changed the parameters on the fly in real time (hence why you hear some noises when a certain parameter is changed) to change the diffusion, the decay, you name it.
Eventually I also engaged Guitar Rig 4 with the Psych Delay for pitch shifting, since someone requested me to do it. Just to make clear: I think this whole 'shimmer' thing is ridicules, haha. I'm definitely not a fan of it OR U2.
I just used the clean channel of the Koch Powertone with the Keeley C4 Compressor and a little analog-like modulated delay and a hint of reverb, both from the G-System.
