Extend a Chord Note Using Reverb, Compression and Automation

Extend a Chord Note Using Reverb, Compression and Automation

At some point we all run into a situation where an issue arises after the recording session and we no longer have the option to fix it because the musicians are no longer available.

Well, recently I ran into a scenario where I recorded an acoustic guitar, and on the last chord I ended up with unwanted noise from my speakers. For some reason my speakers were making an odd noise that I wasn’t able to fix, but within my DAW I was able to remove the unwanted noise on the last chord by creatively using some reverb, compression and automation. Sometimes when you’re in a scenario where you can’t re-record, tips like these can really help save the day. Watch the video to find out how I fixed this problem.
