The Mo-Verb MicroPlug employs the same processing technique like the original Transient Designer. SPL’s Differential Envelope Technology has revolutionized dynamic processing with a level-independent method.
This radically different approach allows to forego the setting of a threshold. Other parameters are set automatically and in a musical manner as they follow the characteristics of the input signal. After all, only one control allows to reshape the sustain characteristics of a sound.
Working with the Mo-Verb is disarmingly simple: All reverb events can be amplified – regardless of their signal level. However, the possibilities for studio and live applications are seemingly endless when reverb curves of any sound event can very simply be enhanced to emphasize dry ambiences and reverb-tails. The Mo-Verb also offers an output gain control that allows to compensate for level changes after processing the signal. This ensures a simple and safe adjustment of levels and helps avoiding internal clipping.
The following examples are given as suggestions and examples. The described procedures with specific instruments can of course be transferred to others which are not mentioned here.
Drums & Percussions
Adjust the apparent “distance” of the microphone by simply varying REVERB-ENHANCEMENT values. If your drums happen to sound as if the room mics have been placed in a shoe closet, the Mo-Verb can immediately turn that sound into the ambience of an empty warehouse. Slowly increase REVERB-ENHANCEMENT values to bring up the room tone. For a solid and driving rhythm track just fine-tune the settings to make sure that the room mic envelope ends more or less exactly on the desired upbeat or downbeat.
Increase distortion with a sustain period. If you want to create soaring guitar solos that would make even David Gilmour blush, just crank up the REVERB-ENHANCEMENT control to the max and there you go.On acoustic guitar tracks you can emphasize the room sound by turning up REVERB-ENHANCEMENT.
A common problem especially with tracks that are recorded and mixed in different studios: Backings lack of ambience, and finding a reverb that “matches” takes time ... so simply emphasize the original ambience by turning up the REVERB-ENHANCEMENT control.
