Understanding Ableton Live’s Reverb and Convolution Reverb
Liam O’Mullane breaks down the differences between Live’s two reverb models.
Adding space and presence to your instruments and recordings can make your track more exciting and immersive – but which reverb is best suited to the job? Ableton Live 10 comes with its own reverb unit, and Max for Live users can take advantage of the Convolution Reverb Pro plug-in. In this Ableton Live Tutorial video, Liam O’Mullane takes a look at both types of reverbs, which use different algorithms to generate different reflections.
