Effects.FreeverbApply method

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Remarks

 

Applies a specific reverberation effect to the given portion of sound under editing.

 

Reverb adds reverberation (rapid, modified repetitions blended with the original sound that gives an impression of ambience). The Reverb effect is based on the original "freeverb" algorithm. Adding reverberation is sometimes desirable for concert halls that are too small or contain so many people that the hall's natural reverberance is diminished. Applying a small amount of stereo reverb to an untreated mono signal duplicated into a two-channel stereo track will usually make it sound more natural.

 

A successful call to this method will fire the SoundEditStarted event followed by a number of SoundEditPerc events and finally by the SoundEditDone event.

 

For further details about methods related to the use of special effects refer to the Effects COM object.
