CSR Room Reverb
Room Reverb Processor
The CSR Room reverb was designed to reproduce the kind of reverberation generated by medium to small acoustical spaces. It is particularly useful to “dress” a dry, close-mike recorded source in a natural ambience that won’t make it sound like an artificial reverb, but as it was actually recorded in a real room. This is far from easy as even though the reverberation doesn’t have a long decay the presence and importance of the early reflections make it really tricky to reproduce convincingly.
In a mix situation the CSR Room reverb will make tracks fit better because of the natural “air” surrounding them or, when driven harder, place them on a different sonic plane, making them literally jump out of the mix.
Tweakable to the minimum detail it can be an invaluable tool on a tonal palette to shape mixes that will sound 3D, articulate and real, where every track fits into its own place and space.
Try it on a bone-dry acoustic guitar and listen to how the CSR Room module instantaneously makes it more real and lifelike. Percussion instruments are also a very good candidate for this processor, especially in studio recordings with a very controlled ambience that must be rendered “looser” in a mixing context.
