How to use reverb on vocals


HomeStudioProject, how to use reverb on vocals

This blog post I can say that is a part b of post that I have written some time ago on how we can use reverb in our projects. Today I want to talk about a specific topic and more specific on how we can use reverb on vocals and the types of reverb you can use. This is most for you ,that you are a beginner in your home studio and anyone who wants to learn for reverb on vocals.

As you may know ,there are two ways you can use an effect ,or plug in. Like an insert ,so it affects the specific instrument you want and the second way and more practical I would say, is like a send effect,where we can use it in multiple tracks.

The same happens with vocals. Let’s say we have a vocal track and some backing vocals in a project. Instead of using a different reverb on each track ,we can apply one reverb in many tracks by creating an Fx channel.

At this point, I would like to tell you that there is no rule ,that we must always use reverb on vocals. There are some types of songs ,where no reverb is needed on vocals.

Let’s take for example a reverb that comes with the DAW I use ,Cubase. As you can see in the picture below , I have a vocal track, a b voc track and a couple of backing vocals tracks. For this reason I am going to use a single reverb for all these tracks. And how do we do this? Simple by creating an Fx channel. In your DAW , maybe it’s called Fx track or Aux track. They are all the same.

In this track we add a reverb that we have or we can use the stock plug ins that come with your DAW ,and this way you can apply the Fx in any instrument you want,by sending this instrument to this Fx track.
