Criando Delay Reverso e Efeitos Reverb em Registro

One of my favourite methods to create special effects is to use reverse delays and reverbs. It's a great way to produce something a little unusual and enter the world of sound design.  

Um dos meus métodos favoritos para criar efeitos especiais é usar atrasos reversa e reverbs. Esta é uma ótima maneira de produzir algo um pouco incomum, e é uma ótima maneira de entrar no mundo do design de som. Mesmo os novatos podem entrar em ação aqui.

Im usando Registro Propellerheads para este tutorial, mas basicamente você pode usar qualquer DAW com a capacidade de reproduzir áudio que possui delay e reverb efeitos plug-ins. Então, isso é, bem ... DAW quase todos no planeta!

01 - Escolhendo Alguns de áudio para o Processo

First up you’ll need to focus on a specific audio part to process. Here I am using a vocal clip as I find that these effects work very well with vocals. My part is in total isolation so everything is nice and clear but of course if you are working on a project you can complete this process on one part amongst many.

With your audio selected make sure it’s solo’d and playing in total isolation. Now is a good time to check your audio for any faults, clicks, pops or overs. The last thing you need here are any imperfections being amplified by the processing... So make sure your audio is super clean.

The audio that we’ll be treating is isolated

O áudio que muito bem ser o tratamento é isolado

The vocal we are going to process is isolated:

[Audio id = "6187"]

02 - Reverter o Áudio

Next open your audio file in your DAW’s audio editor. Record now features a more fully featured editor and has quite a few options for processing, one of which is the reverse function and this is exactly what we are after here!

The audio is reversed

O áudio é invertida

Once the audio is reversed play it back to check everything is present and correct. Also double check your levels at this point and ensure that you are working with plenty of headroom, you’re going to need it when the processing is applied.

Our reversed audio is ready

Nosso áudio revertido está pronto

The vocal is reversed:

[Audio id = "6185"]

03 - Aplicar o Reverb ou Delay

For the purpose of this tutorial I have decided to show the effect with both delay and reverb, so I have set up two send / returns in Record’s mixer. I have used Record’s excellent RV7000 Advanced Reverb to produce a very large reverb and a dedicated delay based Combinator to pump out a tape Echo pre-set in the other.

The return effects are added

The effects sends in Record’s mixer

The reversed audio with reverb added:

[Audio id = "6186"]

... E com atraso stereo:

[Audio id = "6188"]

Com estes dois efeitos configurar eu era capaz de enviar nossa vocal revertida para os dois. O efeito que estamos recebendo é já muito especial como você pode ouvir nos clipes abaixo. Até agora estamos prestes a meio do processo e tem algumas etapas a percorrer antes de terminar.

04 - Efeito Exportadores Só

We need to export the results of our processing, and there are really two ways to go about this. You can export the whole thing, in other words the audio and effect, or you can export just the effects. 

In this case I exported just the effects stream as I’m a firm believer that this method gives you much more control over the finished product and a more balanced sound in general. 

Record offers some really great features for exporting very specific parts of your mix (an area from which other DAWs could learn a thing or two!). Once you have accessed the ‘Bounce mixer channels’ area you can actually home right in on the specific effects devices and just render their outputs.

Record’s fully featured export window

With the isolated effects exported they are ready to be brought back into the project and mixed with the original dry parts to create the final effect.

The reverb effect in isolation:

[Audio id = "6190"]

[Audio id = "6189"]

05 - Re-importar os Resultados, Editar Sync, e Mix

The bounced fx streams can now be imported into a couple of new audio tracks. Once this is complete you can go ahead and reverse all of the audio so everything is technically playing in it’s original state.

Reversing and aligning the tracks

De marcha atrás e alinhando as faixas

The newly imported (and reversed) effects audio will now need to be moved around so that it works nicely with the original dry parts. To do this I would strongly advise you to switch off any snap mode. This will allow you to be extremely accurate with the placement and give you a better chance of getting things right.

I generally use any obvious transients to get things in line. Although the effects have often masked much of the dynamic signature you should find this pretty straight forward and the effect files are usually pretty forgiving, so you don’t have to be mathematically correct here!

All the tracks are now aligned

Todas as faixas estão agora alinhados
Once the files are all in place you can mix their levels to strike a good balance between the  dry and effected files. What you should be left with is a great reverse reverb (or delay) effect. As you have all the files you also have complete control over levels, pan and any further processing you might want to apply.

All the sounds are now mixed to create a good overall balance

Todos os sons agora são misturadas para criar um bom equilíbrio geral

The reverse reverb effect is mixed with the original vocal:

[Audio id = "6191"]

Eo efeito de atraso também é misto:

[Audio id = "6192"]

06 - edição posterior e Reciclagem

Although the effects already sound great you can always take things a step further if you like. You can cut your effected files up, reverse sections, add automation and even more effects processing if you like. All this can be done without effecting the original files.

Some automation is added to the delay audio

Alguma automação é adicionado ao atraso de áudio

In this case I’ve automated the pan on the delay channel and added some modulation effects to the reverb. The result is a trippy collage of sound that really enhances the vocal phrase. Now go and create your own reverse effects and see what you can create!

Extra effects are also added to our reverse reverb

The final result with the extra effects and automation:

[Audio id = "6193"]
