Issue 297 of Future Music is on sale now

Reverb - it's one of those stock effect types that we all own and all use regularly. It's hugely rare to get through a project without turning to a reverb processor at some point, be it to smooth out the rough edges of a sound, gel elements together or simply to add a sense of space to a track.

Once you get to know your chosen reverb tool, it's easy to apply it on auto-pilot, but step out of your mixing comfort zone, and there's a whole world of unique spacial effects out there. That's what this issue's Creative Reverb cover feature is all about - exploring the sonic scope of applying and processing reverb in unusual ways.

Don't miss the accompanying audio examples too, which can be downloaded - along with the rest of this issue's video, audio and samples - from

There's still time to enter our massive backline competition too. In conjunction with our sister magazines, we've rounded up a huge bundle of music gear worth over £14,000, including synths, software, interfaces, monitors, guitars, amps, drums and loads more!
