I'm sure there will be lots of discussion about reverb, clarity, and gain-before-feedback with the new T1.
Here's a good perspective from our experience at Musik Messe last week in Frankfurt where we launched the product to the world.
Two of the three singers used reverb and the third did not. The two added a little more than I would have for sweeting purposes but it did not harm clarity at all. We were in a pretty dry room and that should be taken into account.
We had a very small amount of squeaky peepies or ringy-dingies that snuck in from time to time but they were very easy to manage. These only occurred when I added my headset mic for my narration.
I was very happy with the way the players dove in and tweaked their reverb themselves. It was so nice to see them dial in their sound instead of asking someone for it. They ALL (seven pieces) took to the T1 like ducks to water.
Glad to have you back. I really appreciate your comments on reverb and clarity from your experience at the show. That was something I was quite curious about
Ken, Would you say that the reverb level on the stage was heard at the same level as at the back of the room.
Coming from a studio perspective, I've often used reverb to "set instruments back" in the mix.
The more reverb, the further back in the mix the instrument appears.
(Usually, I would cut a bit of high end to add to this effect.)
This is different from "sweetening" in live situations I suppose.
The cases I've been thinking about are these:
These things all concern me and make me think that I will probably not use effects so much,
as I have already tried outboard reverbs and delays with the L1, and didn't care for it.
The in-depth EQs, Kick Gate, and Scene Saving ability of the T1 are more important to me than the "reverb".
I realize that hearing only one band use the reverb that it may be too soon to judge, but all that being said,
how did you personally perceive the difference in the voices of those with and without reverb added?
Did the reverbed voices seem to blend alright with the guy who didn't use it?
Or since some "added a little more than I would have", were you not able to reach a balanced conclusion?
Or were you just enjoying the music?
