Snare reverb

Post by wernervonw » Mon Jun 20, 2016 7:12 pm

Hey guys

So sorry, I know this is such a beginner question probably but I wanna get a similar reverb like the snares used in these two tracks. Almost like a slap back reverb. Do I just play around with the reverb in ableton or are there some tips and tricks to get this sound.

Thanks so much. Appreciate it

The main method I would to use to get that slapped reverb sound would be to tweak the predelay and make it much longer. You can do this in most reverb units, including Ableton's.

Hope this helps!

Another great trick for snare reverb is putting a gate on the reverb and messing around until it sounds nice. Good for a punchy snare.
