Deverberate
« on: September 13, 2022, 07:18:30 PM »
I don’t know who might need to hear this, but I do believe many tapers are forced into situations where they must record from less than optimal distances, and often can get way more arena/hall ambience in their recordings than they might want.  Since I often do recordings of live instruments in a smallish studio, I started playing around with Acon Deverberate to help get rid of the “small room” sound, and after much experimentation I can actually make it work pretty well.  After a friend from Australia sent me a recording he had made from too far back in an auditorium that had far too much hall reverb in it and asked me to try to remove the reverb, I found it was quite effective, and it made me think that some of you taperheads might also be able to use the software to clean up and improve the work you do.
There are a few other software plugins that also claim to “deverb” recordings, but the acon plugin works well and isn’t too spendy.  If you have any questions, LMK.  Otherwise, you might want to DL a demo and try it out.  I have no connection to acon - I am just reporting on my experience.

Haven't tried that one. but can add those with izotope RX de-reverb, I'm seldom happy with what it does, but the 'enhance dry signal' check box with no other processing is frequently useful.

I have one song that is low in a finished mix, so I tried the 'enhance dry signal' check box with no other processing. and the song puffed up nicely.  Sat well in the mix after using this trick, and saved me the work of having to backtrack a bit.

Thanks, nice find EmRR  :coolguy:

Following.. Have wondered about the efficacy of these routines and their application to overly distant recording positions.
musical volition > vibrations > voltages > numeric values > voltages > vibrations> virtual teleportation time-machine experience
Better recording made easy - >>Improved PAS table<< | Made excellent- >>click here to download the Oddball Microphone Technique illustrated PDF booklet<< (note: This is a 1st draft, now several years old and in need of revision!  Stay tuned)
