In this free video tutorial, brought to you with the support of Waves, we show you a simple way to de-mud your reverb effects. Reverbs have a tendency of cluttering up a mix but don’t blame the length of the tails, often it’s the overall tone of the reverb that is upsetting the balance. A super simple way to address this is by reaching for the tone controls in a reverb plug-in but these can be a bit limited at times. Some reverbs don’t even offer any tone shaping abilities. A quick and easy way to shape the tone of your reverbs is to throw an EQ plug-in into the chain that you know well and can use quickly. In this video we show you how to set this up using Waves plug-ins. Listen to how the vocal reverb lightens by use of a high pass filter and how the acoustic guitar gains focus back in the mix because of this mix move.
