    Hey i used this program audacity and there this special effect named bass boost. Will a larger amp have more bass naturally?And am also curious how does natural reverb occur? I am guessing live reverb sounds Much better then software reverb correct?

    Could you clarify what you mean by large amp - PA Amp., guitar Amp. or hi-fi Amp?

    Here are some definitions of reverb from Google:

    a continuous wash of echoing sound, simulating an acoustic space such as a concert hall.

    an effect that simulates natural reverberations (sound reflections) that occur in different rooms and environments to create an ambience or sense of spaciousness.

    a short, recirculating delay effect used on some guitar amplifiers. It is similar to echo, but instead of discrete, long delay repeats, it is a series of very short delays that add up to create a sense of spaciousness in the tone.

    Depending on the mix and how the live recording is done, it can sound better as it also incorporates the natural acoustics of the venue.

    Live reverb sounds different than a software reverb, not better per say. Obviously a software reverb will have a "Digital" sound that mic'ing a room will not have, but it's easier to control a digital verb than an analog.

    Reverb occurs when sound waves hit a surface and bounce off of it, depending on the what the surface is made of, the angle the sound hits it, temperature, humidity, density, and a number of other factors the qualities of the sound change.

    As far as an amp is concerned. Bigger speakers typically tend to go lower in frequency response, however with proper mic placement, a well tuned instrument, and an ear for tone you can achieve a balanced sound without pulling out the 18's

    the bass knob on an amp will be part of the eq section. it will make the bass frequencies coming through the amp louder. but keep in mind it cannot amplify what isnt there.

    btw, you still havent said what type of amp...
