Alesis MidiVerb 4 Digital Effects Processor

Home recording effects used right can bring out the best in your recordings. Knowing what effect to use and how to use it is what this page and links on the page will help clarify. Most DAWs come with software effects that are good quality and can be used with good results. You can also use dedicated effects software and the results can be better. If you have a dedicated hardware effects processor then the results will be of a very high quality.

Effects and Dynamics

Dynamic processors such as compressors, limiters, gates and expanders have and effect on the audio signal and how loud or soft the sound is.

Effects on the other hand, such as equalization, reverb, chorus and delay take away or add to the sound which changes the sound but doesn't affect the audio signal.

This page is about effects, if you need information about dynamics check out the Audio Dynamics page.
