Artifical real-time reverb using sox

I had to dig through several pages of tweets to find this command:

sox -d -d reverb 80

It basically feeds back from the mic to the speaker with the reverb effect. So if you like a lot of reverb while playing a musical instrument, for instance, but your room doesn’t have the reverb, then you could run this to get the required reverb.

I’m putting this down here, so that I can search for it the next time I want it 🙂

There are other methods, like:

rec -t wav – | play -t wav – reverb 80

But that requires a lot of processing time, so there’s a significant delay between the input and the output…
