How Do I Get a good reverb setting for Guitar or vocals

Aloha, can someone out there help me get to a link that offers a good reverb plug in. I’ve followed various links out there that get me to pages with tons of different options, most of which I don’t understand. Just looking for a nice sounding verb to use on solo instruments and voice overs. Thanks for what ever help you can suggest~

Personally, I like the Anwidasoft DX Reverb Lite, and the Luxonix LF-1310. Both are free VST plug-ins.

I noticed it is now recommended by Audacity team, they suggest settings here …

I’m not sure that counts as an “official endorsement” for Anwidasoft DX Reverb Lite, but personally I think it’s one of the best free reverbs around.

I’ve just noticed that the audacityteam’s suggested settings for Anwida Soft DX Reverb Light’s
pre-delay and decay don’t match the actual controls …

That may have been written with reference to a different (earlier?) version of Anwida Soft DX Reverb Light, or perhaps that’s how it appears when using the VST bridge. (built in support for VST effects in Audacity is quite new). Perhaps you could suggest some better settings (and which version of the plug-in you are using)?

The version I’m using is “ANWIDA Soft DX Reverb Light” , no version number, dated “23 December 2003 12:21:34”, which I downloaded on the 16th March 2010.

My suggestion would be to pick the preset which best describes the effect you are looking for then experiment with the mix setting …

My usual mix values are in the first third ( 0.01- 0.33).

High mix values can reduce the output amplitude (volume), this can be compensated for using the gain slider on the right, (slide up).

You might want to try the “duplicate and mix together” approach as explained on the wiki:
