Reverberation in the recording studio comes from a variety of technologies and achieves a great range of results. Echo chambers, plates, and springs still have their place in contemporary music production even as digital reverb algorithms dominate. This tutorial reviews the technologies behind studio reverb units, shares a broad range of measurement data, and offers organization and insight into the creative, musical applications of reverb. Audio engineers reach for reverb effects to create space and ambience, to be sure. Reverb is also employed to influence timbre, create textures, invoke scene changes, manipulate masking, and synthesize new sounds entirely.
