The Output Metering section is a sophisticated feature that mirrors the Input Metering with its left (L) and right (R) LED displays, covering a range from -72dB to +12dB.
This section is uniquely designed with an additional two meters, reflecting the plugin's four-output architecture, reminiscent of vintage surround four-channel formats.
These meters provide important feedback on the distribution of your reverb's sonic characteristics.
The primary L and R meters give you real-time insight into the balance and intensity of the Dry signal, the 1st Reflection, the Reverb, and the Enhancement you have applied.
This visual guidance is crucial for fine-tuning your reverb's depth and spatial quality.
The additional meters have a specific role in this setup. They are dedicated to monitoring a separate Reverb output, which can be configured independently from your main mix in terms of phase and channel interchange.
They provide essential insights into how this secondary Reverb output behaves and interacts with your main mix.
Steps to Use: Output Meters
Step 1: Exploring the Output Metering Section
- Get acquainted with the Output Metering section, which includes left (L) and right (R) LED displays.
- Note the range of -72dB to +12dB, identical to the Input Metering, for consistency in monitoring.
Step 2: Understanding the Four-Output Architecture
- Recognize the additional two meters in the Output Metering section, displaying the plugin's four-output architecture.
- This setup is inspired by vintage surround four-channel formats, offering a unique distribution of your reverb's sonic characteristics.
Step 3: Monitoring the Primary L and R Meters
- Use the primary L and R meters to gain insights into the balance and intensity of the Dry signal, the 1st Reflection, the Reverb, and the Enhancement.
- This visual feedback is essential for adjusting your reverb's depth and spatial quality.
Step 4: Configuring and Monitoring the Additional Reverb Output
- The additional meters are dedicated to a separate Reverb output, which can be independently configured in terms of phase and channel interchange.
- Regularly check these meters to understand how this secondary Reverb output interacts with your main mix.
Step 5: Applying Adjustments for Optimal Sound
- Adjust your reverb settings based on the feedback from both sets of meters.
- Ensure that both the primary and secondary outputs contribute positively to the overall sound mix.
Step 6: Fine-Tuning for Spatial Quality
- Use the insights from the Output Metering to refine the spatial qualities of your reverb.
- Balance the dry and wet signals to achieve the desired depth and ambiance in your audio.
