Automated Reverb
Another great way that you can use reverb is, you can automate the reverb. For example, I want it to gradually swell up as it goes on. You could also start it dry and automate some of the reverb parameters. Let’s say, you wanted to turn on the space or the decay time and you wanted to turn that up. This way you get that nice reverb build up. Watch the video to see how you can use automated reverb to level up your music production.

Automated Reverb Up Note or Hit
You can also automate a drum hit or a hit or a tone in your music production. It’s really handy if you’re transitioning to a breakdown or you want to create some space and you drop the kick drum or drop some drums.

Gated Reverb
It is also known as the gated snare trick. It was made famous in the 80’s one of the most popular songs that made this famous was Phil Collins “In The Air” but a lot of 80’s songs use this. If you’re trying to go for that 80’s feel or that disco boogie feel, the gated snare or the gated reverb trick is a great way to accomplish that.
