In my opinion, Logic Pro has a pretty well-stacked selection of reverbs to choose from.
Before 10.4, Logic already had a good thing going:
- Space Designer delivers convolution-style reverb that recreates all sorts of spaces, speakers, and special effects.
- EnVerb is a unique reverb that allows you to go nuts with the envelope of your reverbs.
- SilverVerb strips things back with a more straight-forward approach
But when 10.4 dropped back in 2018, I don’t think anyone could’ve expected any its new features. Let alone the awesomeness that is ChromaVerb.
ChromaVerb is a wonderfully versatile algorithmic reverb that offers:
- 14 different reverb spaces – ranging from typical rooms and halls to special effect spaces like Strange Room and Bloomy
- Decay Damping for tuning the frequencies of the decays themselves, plus an Output EQ
- Tempo-synced Pre-Delay and Tempo-synced Decay parameters that allow you to lock your reverb to your Project’s Tempo
- Modulation for giving your spaces movement and depth
- Stereo Width control, ranging from 0% (mono) to 150% (super-wide). And even a Mono Maker control for fine-tuning the stereo width of your reverbs based on frequencies
On top of that, there are 3 levels of quality for each space (low, high, ultra). If you do the math, that’s 14 spaces with 3 levels of quality each. Which comes out to 42 reverbs of varying textures.
And as superficial as it may be to say – how about that amazing graphic display?
If Apple hadn’t developed ChromaVerb, I’d definitely have guessed it was a new Fabfilter plugin 😉
So today let’s explore how wonderful and versatile Chromaverb actually is. Check it out in today’s video.
