The smart:reverb User Guide

August 10, 2020 | Tutorial

With smart:reverb you’ll avoid common reverb problems from the very beginning and you can find the style for your reverb effect intuitively and guided by descripitive properties. Additionally, smart:reverb offers a lot of control options to manipulate the deep-structure of the reverb. This user guide contains helpful tutorials, so you can get exactly the reverb effect you’ve envisioned.

The interface of smart:reverb is designed with users in mind. With helpful visual representations and a generally lean interface, smart:reverb is an efficient and informative tool for audio production. Though the A.I. features of the plug-in are its main attraction, we stayed true to our maxim: “Use smart technology but stay in control”. The Particle Display with its Spectral Shaper Grid and the Temporal Shaper – where you can shape the temporal behavior of decay, spread and density – give you a lot of freedom to shape your reverb effect.

You can download the smart:reverb manual with very detailed information about its features on our support page.

Get started with smart:reverb by watching the tutorial about using the plug-in’s A.I. features.

We show you how you can change the behavior of spread and density over time in the Temporal Shaper.
