How to Add Reverb at end of music beat

PostMon Jul 08, 2019 2:52 am

Would like to know how to extend the end of any audio as reverb. Can do this in pretty much all other mainstream editors so can someone explain how it's done in Resolve?

Thanks

No special method, just add the reverb effect and the reverb tail will extend past the clip.

Not happening here. The clip ends and so does the reverb.

You should be on the Fairlight Page. For final output you will also need to have some black or other vision in the timeline so the audio clip with the reverb 'tail' is not the last clip in the timeline.

I've got a solid color generator going well past the audio clip that I'm trying to reverb out. The reverb still stops at the end of the audio clip. I also added a silent audio clip that extends past the reverb clip. Reverb still stops at end of clip I added reverb to.

If anyone can make this work can you please detail exactly how to do it? This is standard fair for any high end professional video editor. As far as I can tell Resolve can't do this basic technique, very disconcerting.

I never found a way to make this work in Adobe Premiere Pro either.

That tutorial isn't quite right. He's performing the operation in the middle of the audio file, not the end of it. I wanted to add reverb to the actual end of the song, end of the file. That's what I never got working.

I don't work much with Fairlight, but maybe you could try to convert the color generator clip into a compound clip, or insert a real clip with just black instead of the generator. When you have a generator at the end of a sequence, Resolve will sometimes stop at the end of the real video clip, and ignore the generator.

I came across this via a Google search, so maybe this will be helpful to someone else:

If you remove the Reverb effect from your clip, duplicate it, place it right afterwards, and reduce the volume to -100 (or otherwise insert a blank audio clip), you can select the two clips with the Range Selection Mool (R), going a bit beyond each on either side, then choosing Timeline > Bounce Selected Tracks to New Layer from the menu. You can then trim the clip as needed, and add back the Reverb effect.

It is pretty frustrating that it doesn't have a "bleed" option of some sort, but at least this is a quick work-around. If you're recording these in Resolve, you can just leave some silence at the end of the clip, which can serve as room noise as well (this ended up working better for my application).

The effect does not extend beyond the audio track, so one solution is to effectively extend the track by adding something to the end of it - even a solid color - and making a compound clip out of them both. Then add the reverb effect to that.

Not sure if this is a bug or a feature. I can see danger in allowing effects to live on after the end of an audio track. For example, when you come to export and set an outpoint by looking at the tracks on the timeline. This could lead to accidentally cutting off a continuing audio effect.

The way to do this easily is to add a Reverb effect to a TRACK not a clip. Also use the Fairlight page to do it. There are automation controls to adjust anything you need on the track and/or plugin.

This hardly Seems like the easy way to do it. What happens if you have to move the clip around? Then you have to redo the animation?

Here's how I've been doing this. It's more work than most pro edit programs but it works.
Razor cut about a beat after the chosen ringout beat. Delete everything after this cut.
Next razor cut 2 - 4 frames before the beat hit where you want the ringout to start (one beat prior to the cut just made). Move this cut portion exactly down to a new empty track. Pull 4 to 6 frames out after the cut on the original track clip and add a fade.
In Fairlight, add the Reverb to this new track, not clip. For reverb preset choose "Cathedral and play with the settings until you're happy with it. Add fade to start and end of ringout beat clip. Play it and make sure it works the way you want.
Project Settings > Capture and Playback > Capture window, change “Save clips to” location to a Bounce folder you make in the projects folder. Only way to back up the bounces with project. Otherwise they go into the Davinci cache folder and don't follow with a project backup.
Mark in point at start of ringout clip & out point at the end of reverb. Mute all tracks except the ringout track. Maybe just solo the ringout track.
From Timeline Menu choose Bounce Mix to Track. For Destination Track choose New.
This will create the ringout clip file and put it on a new track (as specified in Bounce window). Can now delete the track with the reverb applied and the part of the clip used for it. Can even put new ringout clip straight up onto original track.

Trippy function here. Resolve creates two mono files for this ringout instead of one stereo file. You can see both files in the folder you had Resolve save it to. HOWEVER, In the Resolve Timeline and Media window it shows only one of the files. Kind of a silly process.

I've also done this without bouncing the ringout that created the new audio files by keeping that first ringout track that the reverb was originally added to. I'll keep that reverb track at the bottom of the Timeline if I plan to make more than the one ringout. So any future ringouts you make can just be razored and dropped onto that same ringout track. No bouncing to create new files needed.

Hope this helps
