Do this.

Take the clip you want effected. Cut it and make it a new file. Make sure you leave some nice blank space at the beginning of it. Once you have this new clip, reverse it (so the blank space is at the end) then apply a shitton of your reverb of choice on it. It should have a nice long tail. Mess around with some effects on it or whatever, then reverse it again (back to normal) and then place it back in your song.

yeah, i get that but im saying HOW is it reversed? :)

Well, you open the file in a hex editor, chop off the .wav file header, scroll to the end, and then write down the last of the series of nibbles. Then you open another hex editor and paste the .wav file header in there, and you write down the series -first-.

Keep this up for a few years and you'll have reversed your waveform.

No, of course not :lol:. You install a wave editor like Audacity : http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ and then choose the menu option "reverse".

Man, trance must have been so hard back in the day. ;)

wait. i think some people might have misunderstood (or maybe my fault for not explaining too well)

the reverb comes BEFORE the sample played. and it sounds reversed (or maybe it just 'fades' in). there is nothing after the sample.

know what i mean? i think Phntm of the Opra's example was just the thing i'm thinking of.

plus like, i know this can be done with some simple chopping and cutting up but there HAS to be an easier way, some effect or something because there's no way it would be used as much as it is if it were THAT tedious to do...

that's what i'm asking if anyone knows :)

No no no no no. The explanation was already given. We understand what you're trying to do. You really should try to do it as it was written.

Wait, let me illustrate it.

Actually drew it out and everything!

Try using a delay instead of a reverb for a slightly different result; it's interesting with vocals.

Honestly, I can't think of a simpler way to achieve this effect. From my limited knowledge of vsts and plugins, anything that would be able to achieve this effect would probably be a) CPU consuming and B) pointless.

It sure is. The best example I can think of off the top of my head is Sepultura's "Slaves of Pain". Reverse-delayed vocals are awesome.

Reverse delay is done differantly though. If you'd apply the same technic of reverse reverb with a delay you'd get an ascending delay. (wich is cool none the less).

Anyone know how to do a reverse delay without haveing a reverse delay software?
