Suite owners - do you ever use Live regular reverb anymore?

Post by Citizen » Sun Aug 04, 2013 3:11 am

Since Suite ships with convolution reverb, do you ever find yourself using Live's regular reverb? I've never been a huge fan of Lives regular reverb myself -perhaps it is a better idea to switch over all my reverbs to convolution?

Thoughts?

Actually, I just started using the Convolution reverb in a mix today - and I like it a lot.
I was never a fan of the regular reverb myself and I there's a lot of improvement in the Convolution in my opinion.

Yeah, my main issue with the basic standard reverb in Live is that I can never get it to sound 'lush' - it always sounds kinda 'plastic' or 'metallic' to my ears.

Maybe I'm crazy - then again, I'm yet to find another reverb that I really like, either.

I'll have a comparative tinker with the convo reverb and see how I go. Any favourite settings, guys?

It's only ok, till you try something else. Then you really can see how limited it is, there are a lot of really great reverbs out there....

Isn't convolution a bit resource heavy? I find it really bumps up the CPU...
