What does Wet/Dry mean?
 
Hi everyone

Could someone explain to me precisely what (i.e. for a reverb or delay) Wet/Dry means.

I always thought Wet means you can hear the effect and dry means you can't hear the effect. But I'm not quite sure if that's right.

Thank you!

You can choose to mix the dry signal (no effect) with the wet signal (which is 100 doused in reverb or delay) so you can have a teeny bit of reverb, or a metric ****ton, which is a bit more than a metric ****load.

Dry is the input signal, Wet is the output (effected) signal, a Wet/Dry knob controls the mix of the two.

Everyone has been saying the correct things, but just to be clear, "100% wet" means 0% original dry signal. If you use a reverb plugin after your instrument and you set it to 100% wet, you won't be hearing any of the original signal (only the reverberations).


This setting is often useless if you set up a reverb as per above, but very useful if you are bussing to a reverb, where the dry signal is still coming from the original track, and where you can use the reverb track fader to adjust the total amount of reverb sound.
