How To Use Reverb and Delay in Series for a Spacious Vocal Sound – Audio Issues : Audio Issues
So I added the delay plug-in after the reverb to add the effect. But that made the reverb too delay-y, so I turned the wet/dry signal to 50/50.
That way some of the reverb came through unaffected to add normal space, while some of the reverb was delayed to add a subtle echo effect.
After adding an EQ to filter out the highs and the lows, the vocal space sat nicely with the rest of the mix.
Thanks to Björgvin Benediktsson for the tip…
This is a very handy tip.
Re: X-AIR and M-AIR mixers and system delay? – Music Tribe
You can add delay to a bus or Main LR mix on an XAir mixer by inserting a Pitch Shifter FX processor. This is the best processor to use for this because the Delay control has finer resolution than the normal delays. If you set Semi and Cent to zero, Mix to 100% and Hi Cut to 20kHz, the processor will just act as a delay. Use half of a Dual processor for a bus or the Stereo version for Main LR or a linked bus pair.

Deciding how long a reverb tail to use in your mixes encompasses a lot of variables. What is the tempo of the song? How busy are the parts? Are there a lot of open spaces between phrases, or are they densely packed together? Do you want to convey a sense of an intimate closer space, or a larger distant space? These are just some of the considerations that play an important role in communicating the intended emotion of the music.
