R 24 REVERB IN HEADPHONES

Post by g6120 » Sun Dec 18, 2016 8:19 am

How do I get a little reverb through my headphones when I do vocals laying tracks down . What steps do I take to do so . It would not be recorded with reverb it would just be in my phones .

Based upon the manual, you will not be able to do that using the send/return reverb module. Only insert effects have the option for wet/dry (you are asking for dry mode).

Unfortunately, looking at page 78, the only insert algorithm with its own reverb is the basic clean/distortion/acoustic (ie, guitar). Microphone algorithms do not show a reverb unit.

Page 55 of the manual describes in detail exactly what you want to do.

Insert effect > select your delay/verb algorithm> select 'Dry' for the record signal (ie no effect gets printed, but you'll be hearing the 'wet' version)

It's quite easy to do. I don't recall how you dial up the amount of reverb you want to hear, but it's definitely possible to do so (either via the jog wheel or a fader, I don't recall which)

Edit...the above refers to the R16 manual, I assume it's similar or identical for the R24 ?
In the R16 manual, it's in the "Effects" section, under the topic: Using the insert effect only for monitoring

As I pointed out, however, the only algorithm with a true reverb on it is "clean/distortion/aco/bass" on the R24 (the R16 doesn't even have that)

The other insert algorithms have a delay module, which may not produce the desired effect (closest would be to configure the Mod/Delay to "AIR" which attempts to simulate room wall acoustics but does not incorporate the decay/repeat of a real reverb.

I must have read the original question wrong? Because this is EXACTLY what the Send/Return effects are for (e.g., the Reverb Send/Return).

Whether the R24 is in audio interface mode or standalone mode, the Send/Return Reverb (I recommend the Soft Hall preset as a decent reverb "room" for vocals) would give you some reverb for laying down vocals, but by default, the Send/Return effects are NOT recorded "wet" (but you CAN "burn-in" the Send/Return effects through Bouncing tracks THROUGH the Send/Return effects to the destination channel(s).

Both manuals (main operations manual as well as the audio interface manual (see: https://www.zoom-na.com/sites/default/f ... nglish.pdf) have steps to follow when wanting to use Send/Return effects while laying down various tracks.

Did I misunderstand the question??

Probably not -- I have to admit I don't have enough experience with the send/return signal path to be sure where the return gets back into the chain.
