Reverb Pro Audio Signal Processors & Effects
Reverb is a very common type of sound effect used in all kinds of music, especially popular music. The principle behind it is to vibrate the sound so it appears to ‘reverberate’ or reverb around the air. This can sometimes sound like a wobbling effect on the sound being listened to.
Reverb is commonly used in rock and pop ballads to add a different quality to the sound of the singer’s voice, as well as being used for many other types of effect that you can add to the music you’re either recording or playing live.
