too much reverb can't be fixed can it?

After I doused my vocal track with way tooooo much reverb and saved it like that from wavlab, there's no way I can go back and take it out can I. I reckon I'm gonna have to re-record my vocals again, you think????

yeah, most likely...you can try EQing out some of the ringing frequnecies, but I'd say it's best to record it again...

always save a copy of the original take.

you using wavelab to add reverb?

i'd mix in a different program if you can...so you can go back to your 'mix' and back off the reverb without accually applying it to the raw track. then bounce the mix to a stereo track.....

but yeah if you applied it to the .wav then you're stuck with it.

Yeah I learned that over the 4 or 5 years that Ive been recording...Always save the dry take and "Save As" to a wet take after you've applied your effects.

What do you suggest. I thought about since I use acid 4.0 to record in, it has the same effects as does wavlab, getting my effect right there, then deleting the effect from the track and edit the wav in wavlab with the same effect and set all settings the same and saving it then. But yeah, I learned this one the hard way!!!!

i see....ok yeah record and mix (reverb eq's ect) in acid then export that audiofile to one stereo .wav file(with FX)....save that acid 'project' file so you can come back later if something needs changed, now open your stereo .wav up in wave lab....you can tweak further, but you should be focusing on dynamics (compression) and EQ (for balance between different audio systems) which is the Mastering process.

ya follow?
