Who Knows production question

Postby papalazarou » Fri Dec 18, 2015 8:09 pm

Long time no-see, forum. Hope everyone is well.

I have a question regarding the sound/production on Who Knows. There is a very interesting and beautiful reverb on this song. To my ears, the recording seems to collect the reverberations of the acoustic guitar and vocals throughtout the course of the song. By the time we have reached the end of the song, a small and beautiful wall of reverb has built ever so subtly over the course of the song. Can anyone explain to me what kind of reverb or delay sound is used here, and how it is done? My best bet is a studio delay added in post-production, but I could be wrong. Any ideas?

And apologies to the mods if this is in the wrong forum.

I'll hazard a guess, sounds like infinite decay, if we're talking delay pedal settings.

It is really nicely done, no argument there. I love the feel you get from Who Knows / Endless / Man I'm Only Human in that running order, almost feels like a different band, a melancholic La's.
