phil_m Posted February 8, 2018 Share Posted February 8, 2018 Ok....So, I've been tinkering with the Reverbs for the last two hours and let me start by saying that I really like them a lot. However, I've noticed that if you increase the mix you almost completely lose your clarity of notes and your sound gets reduced. I tried to emulate what someone that was beta testing them did - which was a very wet sound and I couldn't make it more wet without highly diminished quality. Has anybody else used them yet and found this to be true. I admit there are quite a few things to tweak and I certainly haven't exhausted everything but just increasing the wetness shouldn't diminish the sound and clarity IMO. Anybody? I think you are probably misunderstanding how the mix parameter on the Helix reverbs (and, well, every effect that has mix parameter in the Helix) works. It's really a balance knob that controls the relative level of the dry and wet signals. At 50, you have 100% dry and 100% wet. At 0, you have 100% dry and 0% wet. At 100, you have 0% dry and 100% wet. So once you move the mix knob past 50, the dry sound is going start decreasing in level. If you want to have a sound that's more wet than dry, you can compensate for the decreased dry signal by increasing the overall level of the block with the Level parameter. Or the other thing you can do is put the reverb block in a parallel path and try mixing the wet and dry that way. The BigSky mix knob works more like a traditional mix knob where the mix doesn't start get more wet than dry until the very end of the sweep. It also has an analog dry path, so the dry path is never really decreased in volume. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
