Example text

Reverb and delay are great tools to create a sense of depth in your mix. So before you start applying them, think about which of your tracks are close and which are far from the audience. The farther back an instrument is, the higher the value of the mix parameter should be. You can boost this sense of depth by making a more pointed high cut for the instruments in the back (remember, if sound travels a greater distance in air, it will lose more of the high frequency content). A typical set-up for a pop / rock song is: vocals and solo instruments in the front, guitars and drums in the middle, everything else in the back (especially strings and pads).

In A Nutshell - Chorus The chorus effect simulates a choir. It gives the impression that multiple instruments are playing instead of just one. It is produced by creating a duplicate and delaying the duplicate by a varying amount. This also creates a varying pitch shift. Apply it in a subtle manner unless you are producing psychedelic music. Perfect for chorusing are the tracks that make up the background: background vocals, strings, pads and rhythm guitars.

So it's buy a note, get a chord free. You might wonder why it is that we don't seem to perceive the additional notes. Well, we do and we don't. We don't perceive the overtones consciously because the amplitude, and thus volume, of each harmonic is smaller than the amplitude of the previous one (however, this is a rule of thumb and exceptions are possible as any instrument will emphasize some overtones in particular). But I can assure you that when listening to a digitally produced note, you'll feel that something's missing.
