What is Reverb?3:16
In this first video Scottie talks briefly about what Reverb is, its different parts and what it’s used for. Scottie discusses how Reverb, in its most basic form, is made up of two parts.
In this video Scottie breaks down the Reverb device into its various sections and goes over the first half of its parameters. This includes the Input Processing or Pre-Effect processing, Early Reflections and the Global controls. Scottie then takes a listen to how different sources can be placed in a space and how Early Reflections give our ears a lot of clues about the nature of that space.
Scottie takes a look at the remaining parameters that control the Diffusion Network and Output.
In this video Scottie touches on what an Impulse Response is and introduces Live 9’s Convolution Reverb along with its presets.
Scottie looks at the Convolution Reverb’s parameters and how they correspond to the Reverb Device’s parameters. These include Decay, Size, Pre-delay, Width, Gain and Dry/Wet. Then Scottie uses some very delicate source material and sees just how musical this Convolution Reverb can be.
For the Pro7:45
Scottie goes over Convolution Reverb Pro and the additional parameters it brings with it’s Tab View. Then he uses reverb as a creative element adding more than just space to the mix.
What is Delay?3:28
In this video Scottie briefly discusses the concept of delay, how it works and different types of delay.
Scottie takes a look at the Simple Delay and the basic parameters associated with every delay that comes with Ableton Live such as Delay Time, Feedback and Wet/Dry. Scottie also discusses how the Left and Right channels can work in Parallel or simplified to one channel. Scottie then wraps up this video by effecting a dry guitar clip emulating a simple digital delay pedal and using delay to create a stereo effect.
Back & Forth5:04
In this video Scottie takes a look at the Ping Pong Delay that's just a tad more complex. He introduces the option of a filter and two delays working in series. Scottie also discusses where in the signal chain the feedback gets reintroduced, and creates an old 70’s analog tape delay sound.
Never Too Many Filters4:24
Scottie takes the filter idea to the next level with the Filter Delay. Scottie also shows how this device can filter and effect each channel separately to create a very complex sound and finishes up the video by using the Filter Delay to add complexity and space to a rather dry and boring sound.
Chop It Up6:08
Join Scottie as he takes a look at a very creative and down right crazy effect called Grain Delay. The Grain Delay Device can be used subtly to add color and even chorus or it can be used to create over the top textures. In this video Scottie explores all the new parameters this Device introduces and uses it to create some thick and interesting textures.
Change It Up4:44
In this last video Scottie takes a look at how these delays are effected by changing their time parameter and how you can emulate old gear and new gear by simply switching between Fade, Repitch and Jump.
Ableton Certified trainer extraordinaire Scottie Dugan returns and is ready to pull the curtain back on Live 9's built-in reverb and delay plug-ins. Join Scottie as he unlocks the power of these two classic, "must know how to use" effects.
Scottie kicks things off with an introduction to reverb and what it is, and then takes a close look at the Reverb plug-in and its parameters, showing how Early Reflections give your ears a lot of clues about how the space "behaves" in a mix. Scottie then reveals the parameters that control the Diffusion Network and Output, and why they're important to crafting the perfect space.
Moving on, Scottie explains what Impulse Responses are, and introduces Live 9's Convolution Reverb along with its presets. The Convolution Reverb Pro is then examined, looking at the additional parameters it brings, and how it's a creative element that can add more than just space to the mix.
Delay is next up and Scottie covers it all. Beginning with the Simple Delay, Scottie gives an introduction to the concept of delay, as well as the different types of delay. The basic parameters found in every delay in Ableton Live are discussed, and Scottie then shows how to give a dry guitar clip a deep stereo sound by emulating a digital delay pedal.
The Ping Pong Delay is then fully demonstrated, and the technique of using a filter, as well as two delays working "in series" is shown. Scottie then discusses where in the signal chain feedback gets reintroduced, and reveals how to create an old 70's analog tape delay sound. Taking the filter idea further, Scottie demonstrates how the Filter Delay can filter and effect each channel separately, creating a very dense, complex sound.
Lastly, the creative and down right crazy effect called Grain Delay is shown and how it can be used subtly to add color, chorus, and or over the top textures. In the final video Scottie takes a look at how all these delays are effected by changing their time parameter, and how you can emulate both old and new gear by simply switching between Fade, Repitch and Jump.
Reverb and delay are probably two of the most commonly used effects in your sonic toolbox. Let Scottie show you show to conquer Live 9's powerful reverb and delay effects, and then unleash their true power on your productions... Watch "Live 9 Reverb & Delay In Action" today.
