Full Version: To Remove Reverb

Hi,

I've recorded some drum tracks with a condenser in a big room and now in the recording there's a lot of reverb.

Is there any way to remove the reverb? Any plugin or settings I could use with sonar 8?

Thanks

what about micing the drums up seperatly?
think its hard to remove reverb. And if im not wrong the condensators are there to add some ambience and of course for the cymbals

It's always difficult, or impossible to remove effects afterwards.
If you're looking for a good result you better rerecord the drums. And remember that the further away you keep the mike the more room/reverb you'll get.

I actually saw a de-reverb plug-in a few days ago, but I can't remember the name for the life of me... sad.gif

I'll keep looking and you know when/if I figure out what it was smile.gif

Please remember it, it will come in handy on the entire 80's music production.... laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif
Maybe the name was Deverb??? tongue.gif

I'm not sure if this is possible. If you can try re-recording in better fitted room. You will get better results if you mic up separately every part of the drum set.

If you guys find that DeReverb plug let me know smile.gif

Denoiser is very good but very expensive - as is all Algorythmix pro end stuff. It's up there with Cedar noise removal apps for pro end mastering daws like SADiE etc. At a guess it would probably cost about 1000Euros. Also I think you'll need the USB security dongle to use it. If you can afford it Adrian's absolutely right that it will do a great job.

Algo do some simpler cut down noise removal stuff aimed at the consumer market - one of those might do the trick. Another possibility is the RX from Izotope -again the pro version of that is about 1000Euros - and there is a simpler consumer/prosumer orientated version for about 400Euros but I don't think it's upto removing reverb. Failing these if you know how to do convolution then take a convolution of the room to get only the reverb. Use that file to de-convolute the file - a bit hit and miss as you can get phase effects as it is pretty hard to get a proper mirror image due to imprecise mic placement.

If you can't afford the Algo then personally I'd agree with Bogdan - re-record.

Tony gave a great response of what can be done. Just to add, for demo recordings, I wouldn't count on too big improvement @ high costs. If you have the chance, add some dry kick & snare samples with Drumagog or something and adjust the triggering with that drum audio file (if possible). This will help the drums to be more defined. The rest can be tucked in the overall mix in a more comfortable way. Record everything else dry, except one guitar or vocal, and don't overdo there as well.
Or if it is not a problem, get some curtains on walls, and call the drummer once again. smile.gif
