Paul asked an interesting question over on the IMMusic Forum regarding using multiple Reverb settings in OAX. Like Paul, we are slightly confused with the concept of applying two different Reverb effects to a single sound.
The folks from Wersi sent me some additional information on the implementation of the Reverb effects in OAX. Let’s take a closer look. If you are unsure how to get to these settings, double click on the sound you would like to work with, and you will see a screen similar to this.
A couple of comments on the image above. We are in the “Pro” mode vs. the “Easy Play” mode. Take note that there are two Reverb controls (Rev 1 & Rev 2). Also, notice that under each slider, it’s highlighted in green and says “from Sliders” vs. “from Sound.”
When set to “from Slider,” we control the amount of Reverb in use vs. the “from Sound” setting, which will use the reverb settings that Wersi set for the voice.
Next, let’s take a look at the signal path:
Although in our first screenshot, we show a sound selected on “Upper 1,” the same Reverb options can be applied to all sounds, as noted in the diagram above.
To change the type of Reverb effects that are in use, touch “Effects” on the right side of the main screen of OAX, and you will see:
In addition to setting the Delay and Chorus effects, you see that we can select different Reverb effects for Reverb 1 and Reverb 2. Over on the right side of the screen, the sliders allow you to modify whatever Reverb you choose. Once you have changed the settings, you can save it as a User Effect preset. Of course, you can then select your new “User Effects Preset” and save that as part of a “Total Preset.”
Have you modified any of the Reverb settings and saved them as your own configuration?
