I often get asked about reverb on vocals. There seems to be a common misconception. Most people assume that you should use reverb alone to create a space around the vocals… but in most cases, you don’t.
With reverb, the vocals seem too wet. Without reverb, the vocals seem too dry. To solve this issue, most people use delays to create a space around the vocal.
But there is still a great way to use reverb to add space and width to your vocal, without making it too wet.
In this video tutorial I’ll show you exactly how you can use short reverbs and multiple delays to add width, depth and space to a lead vocal.
