Does Wavelab have the ability to send to an aux or FX channel (like in cubase)? I have a situation where I need to restore a historic recording. The reverb on the recording was overdone and unrealistic sounding. I’ve managed to reduce that pretty successfully. However I now need to put back a little reverb (of a much higher quality). However, I don’t want the low frequency content feeding into the reverb, just the mids. In Cubase or Pro tools I’d just use a send and filter out the lows on the FX channel before it hits the reverb. Is there a way to do this in Wavelab?
Sorry, no such possibility in WaveLab.
Ok thanks. It would be a useful feature when we occasionally need add reverb mastering. I find when I do I invariably just want it on certain areas of the frequency spectrum.
You should be able to find great reverb plugins out there with pre-filtering on the input and/or output allowing you to exclude what you don’t want, and then blend with dry signal.
Actually, you could use the Spectrum editor to define a frequency range and use the Master Section mode and insert a reverb in the Master Section. In this way, the effect will only be applied to that frequency range.
Thanks, I don’t think that’s ideal for me as I use the master section for my speaker calibration software. I can bypass that software before rendering but I’ve been caught by that before (forgetting to either by pass or engage) which is why I now exclude the master section from rendering.
Then use the Playback section of the Master Section. These section is precisely for this purpose: these plugins are never rendered. You don’t have to think about it.
Yes that’s what I’m using but I didn’t realise they were never rendered. I thought you had to choose to bypass the master section when rendering to prevent that. Good to know I don’t need to do that.
Re your method above. I’m not clear how the routing works there. How is it that defining a frequency range in the spectrum editor doesn’t also remove those frequencies from the dry signal?
I see, so if the reverb is set to 100% it will act that same as if I’d used a send in Cubase. Thanks.
I just realised that in your screenshot you are using the wav editor not the montage. Is there a way to get this method to work in the montage? I need to be able to change clip effects alongside the reverb to get it sounding right.
No, this is only for the audio editor.
