Reverse reverb is exactly what the terms mean. It creates a reverb tail of any sound or instrument in the reverse. This effect started to show its signs in the late 1960s. You will be able to create a significant effect with horns, drums or a signature cacophonous guitar sound.
Modern music too uses reverse reverb very often especially when a vocal passage needs to be dramatized extensively. This feature may however seem to be more technical to you rather than creative and it is actually true.
- If you are working with a complete vocal recording you will have to first single out one specific word that is preferably at the opening of a verse. If you cannot find any such word then alternatively you can drag a one-shot vocal sample in your DAW.
- In both these cases you will have to create a facsimile of the selected vocal on a new track and then reverse it. After that you will have to add your chosen reverb plug-in. The primary goal should however be to create a long reverb tail. You can do this by turning the wet mix and decay time way up.
- Listen to both the original as well as reverb version of the vocal by bouncing the audio file to the disk and bringing it back into your DAW.
- You must reverse it again so that the audio file plays forwards with the long tail created acting as a riser to the vocal.
Lastly, you must line up the completed vocal after processing with the original file so that the final transition between the two samples is seamless. It may be sometimes required to add fades on either side of the processed vocal version to attain this result.
