Reverb decay reaches after end of track

asked Dec 5, 2016 in Studio One 3 by svenlieber (210 points)

thanks for help but it does´t solve my problem.

For the sound i want i need a 3 second 100%wet reverb for 16 bars which is fine.

 But i dont understand why the reverb is running out after the track (16 bars )ended.

In Cubase, where i came from, the effect is only applyed as long as the track lasts.(Stops right after 16 bars)

When the end of the track is reached the reverb stops - no matter how long the reverb is set.

in Studio One the reverb keeps going on although the end of the track was already reached.

Its like a "trails" swich on an guitar pedal.

Because the track is allready over i cant do any fade out :-(

Of course i could use a shorter decay but this would sound different so that is not an option.

thanks for help

Unfortunately that's just not how reverb works.

If you want the reverb to end when your song ends then you need to setup some automation.

There are quite a few different parameters you could automate to achieve this and it's going to be up to you to figure out which way works best for you.

I personally would probably automate the dry/wet signal to dip to totally dry where I wanted the song to end. But, once again, this is going to be up to you to decide how you want to make this happen.
