Transcript of Algorithmic Vs Convolution reverb. Differences and important features.

Hello everyone. I am Raphael Hadjimichael from Cyprus. This lesson is for week 5 of Introduction to music production of Coursera.org. I will be comparing the Algorithmic and Convolution reverbs and note their differences and important features.
Algorithmic reverb
Algorithmic reverbs create a reverb from kind of a formula, just like synthesizers do.
Convolution reverb
Convolution reverb is an actual recording of a real space applied to the sound that you're currently using in a DAW. Like the sampler instrument.
Thank you for your time and review!
Convolution reverb
Contrast to the convolution reverb it offers more opportunities to manipulate the sound of a space, but it won't sound quite as real.
Usually when creating an algorithmic reverb they divide the room in two seperate components:
1. Early reflections 2. Diffuse reverb

Early reflections are a set of short delays
Algorithmic vs Convolution reverb
Differences and important features
The convolution reverb is going to sound more like a real space, because it is an actual recording of a space, but like a sampler, you're limited in the type of manipulations you can do to it.
Experiment with parameters like Reverb Time which controls the size of the room/space that you're in ( keep below 2 seconds ).

Note: It is best to use a balanced 50%-50% between the Early reflections and the Diffuse reverb.
Algorithmic reverb
With a Convolution reverb most of what you do is choose an impulse response or a space that you like.

Impulse response = the recording of a real space applied with this mathematical procedure called convolution.

Note: using a different reverb can make a mix sound brigh or dull or empty or full.
