Mixing engineer Ben Baptie shows some great reverb tips

Reverse Reverb and other Reverb Tips with Ben Baptie at Strongroom.

Seriously 'up and coming' mix engineer and producer Ben Baptie shows his reverb tricks in this short extract from our hour long video feature shot at Strongroom Studios with George Shilling.




Ben shows his reverse reverb methods and some other very cool reverb and delay ideas that we found so interesting we thought it would be a great idea to make this a stand alone feature.



Plug-ins used in this video

Soundtoys - Little AlterBoy
Avid - D-Verb
Bomb Factory BF-76



Many thanks to Ben for his time, Strongroom Studios for their help in making this feature possible and to George Shilling. Please note that the audio in all of this video was recorded 'on camera' and the actual effects and sound quality is obviously much better than you can hear here.
