In this week’s tutorial, we will explore a commonly used technique used in today’s Hip-Hop & Trap music on adlibs: sidechained reverb.
This effect has been used for decades; however, Travis Scott has made this technique a popular demand for engineers to execute. You have probably heard this effect on ad-libs such as “It’s Lit” & “Straight Up” in the background. These ad-libs sound drenched in reverb, but add a really cool spacious effect to the song. Chances are if you have mixed Trap music, you may have tried using this technique, but it ended up overcrowding the rest of the mix.
Have you ever wondered how engineers pull this technique off without creating a muddy sounding mix? If so, then this tutorial video is filled with the information you’ve been searching for!
Follow along as professional engineer Eric “Realistic” Michael gives you a step-by-step guide on executing the Trap adlib effect.
