Sometimes you want a pristine reverb with the most delicate and precious tail imaginable.
Other times, you want a layer of digital dirt to add a touch of gritty color.
For those other times…
here’s another new free audio effect rack for Ableton Live 9.
It’s called “8-Bit Reverb” and is a lo-fi reverb effect that can be used on individual tracks or in a return channel.
It stays at an output bitrate of 8, for an old-school computer noise sound.
It has robust controls for sculpting the timbre easily to apply to many versatile usages.
The amount of reverb.
At 0, effect is bypassed.
To use this as a send effect in a return channel (in order to add amounts of the same reverb to different channels), set it to 100% (127).
Affects the reverb and erosion bandwidth.
Increase this for a more dense, colored sound.
Alters many parameters simultaneously.
Set this carefully for the desired reverberation contour.
Adds in erosion coloration to the reverb layer. At 0, no erosion is added.
Sculpts the lower range of the reverb. Boost this for more boominess.
Sets the midpoint of the reverb and erosion tones.
In conjunction with Tone Width this has a great effect on the overall sound.
Sculpts the upper range of the reverb. Boost this for more shimmer.
Divides the sample rate by the number shown.
(Note that the bit rate is always set to 8; dividing the sample rate further degrades the sound.)
