LL Cool J - Phenomenon Reverb?

Hi all,

Wondering if anyone here knows what specific reverb unit(s) were used on the LL Cool J album Phenomenon (1997 / Def Jam) ?

Particulaly interested in the track Candy mixed by Rich Travali.

Any info much appreciated.

It’s possible they used plate reverb at Universal Studios. Who knows. But given the technology these days, you should be able to achieve the same results with the built in reverb plug ins you have in your DAW. It’s not about what they used but it’s about how good you are at using the tools you have in front of you. Just learn how to use what you have - even stock plug ins - and your stuff will sound amazing.

I use mainly all the stock plug ins from Ableton and I get incredible results including reverb. Just learn to use what you have. Don’t worry about what someone else used or what they used. Even if you know what they used, you probably won’t be able to replicate it anyway.
