So, what is reverb and how is it used?
Reverb is the effect a space or solid object has on the sound before it reflects into your ear. It lets you transport a listener to a concert hall, a cathedral, or an intimate space.
A reverb pedal can provide space, depth, and intrigue to your mix, but it also gives the listener important clues about where the sound is taking place and where the listener is in relation to the sound.
Reverb pedals can be used as a utility or creative tool. It is added to an input signal with devices that either digitally model the reverberation of a real - or even imagined - space, or by using the input signal to vibrate an object.
The classic implementation of reverb with guitar in rock music is often created by spring reverb tanks in amps or tape delay units.
Essentially, reverb is one of the most versatile effects in mixing which not only immerses listeners but also glues your mixes together.
There are also several common reverb types which can range from hall reverb, which simulates the acoustics of a concert hall or other larger performance space, to chamber reverb which simulates the acoustics of an echo chamber, and room reverb which simulates the acoustic of a mid-to-large sized room.
A reverb pedal, then, is an effects unit that produces audio reverb and is built in the form of a stompbox.
Reverb pedals are often used by guitarists and bassists, as well as keyboardists and synth players.
