Qu'est-ce que la réverbération ?

What is reverb?

Sound is made up of sound waves.

When you hear a sound, it's actually sound waves hitting your ears.

If a sound wave contains a lot of energy - if it's a loud sound - then it will take longer for the sound waves to die out.

The energy of sound waves is measured in decibels. When you increase the volume, you increase the decibels. And conversely, when you lower the volume, you also lower the decibels.

Reverberation occurs when sound waves continue to reflect in a room even though the source is no longer emitting sound.

What's technically happening when you experience reverb is that you're hearing the same sound multiple times - echo, echo, echo - which means the sound is mixing, so you're hearing the same sounds multiple times.

The reason you hear the same sounds multiple times is that you not only hear sound waves that travel directly from my mouth to your ears - you will also hear sound waves that reflect off surfaces (walls, floors or ceilings). ) into the room, which then hits your ears with a slight delay.

This is especially a problem if you have a lot of flat, hard surfaces in a room.

Outdoors, you would not experience reverberation, because the sound waves would not encounter any obstacles that they could reflect off.

Now that we understand reverberation, we can move on to the next thing, which are the things you can do to create a good acoustic environment in a room.
