Raum- Mix and Reverb Control

The manual says
  1. Mix: Blends between the input signal and the effect signal by means of an equal-power crossfade.
  2. Reverb: Adjusts the amount of reverb added to the effect signal.

Do I put the mix on full when I use it on a send track?

And how do I use the reverb knob if used on a send?

    As the reverb control only affects the effect (wet) signal, it doesn't matter whether you use Raum on a send or return effect. It simply affects the amount of reverb in the effect's signal (as the name suggests). If the parameter is on 0, you only hear the early reflections (or delay). If it's on 100%, you only hear the reverb, but no early reflections.

    And, yes, put the mix parameter on 100%, if you use Raum as a send effect (as you always should do with reverb effects). You control the effect amount with the send amount in your DAW then.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    So what you are saying 50/50 is you have equal amount of early reflection / reverb.

    With many reverbs you just put it on wet only and use the send level for the mount.

    This one I just don't quite understand it because of what I see in some tutorials.

    "So what you are saying 50/50 is you have equal amount of early reflection / reverb."

    Yep.

    "With many reverbs you just put it on wet only and use the send level for the mount."

    "Wet" means that you only hear the effect signal, opposed to the original AND effect signal going out of the effect. For send effects, ALWAYS use 100% wet in the plugin. Or, in Raum's case, 100% "Mix". The Mix or Wet parameter only makes sense when you use the effect as an insert effect.

    Ok I get what you are saying with raum.

    What about the reverb knob, can it be adjusted freely depending what reverb I am looking for.

    Thanks again.

    Yes, absolutely. Depends on whether or not you are looking for a more "reverb" type of effect, or early reflection or delay type effect. If you dial in 0 for the reverb parameter, you can use Raum as a delay effect. 😉 Sounds pretty damn good too.

    I don't know how NI did this. Both Raum and Replika sound absolutely crystal clear, something I never got from other delay or reverb FX. Really superior sound quality.

    Hello,

    first: yes, if you use it as send fx, you turn d/w all the way to wet

    second: you use it until you have a healthy signal I would say

    Thanks it sure does. Was a bit confused of how I saw some guys using it.
