Improving Depth In Your Mixes Using Shape & Spread In Tai Chi

It’s no secret that reverb is essential for creating atmosphere and depth in a mix. Alongside more familiar parameters like reverb pre-delay and the early reflection balance, how a reverb itself develops over time is crucial to how we perceive the space.

LiquidSonics’ Tai Chi ensemble reverb gives you a set of controls called Shape & Spread that were inspired by iconic vintage digital reverbs from the 1980s. With just a little knowledge about how these work, they offer a quick and simple way to level up your mixing skills.

In this tutorial video Julian David explores how to enhance the sense of depth in your mixes using these powerful tools on drums, vocals and a jazz duet.

The shape and profiling controls were added in the free Tai Chi v1.4 update, so just pick up the latest versions from the downloads page if you’re not running our latest plug-in software.
