In general, DO NOT use reverb as an inline effect (a reverb as a plug-in on an audio track).
Instead, use an Aux Send and Return in a parallel configuration.
Use an Aux to send all the desired channels to an internal bus. Create an Aux track and set the bus as its input. Put the reverb plug-in on the Aux track.
- more efficient use of computer processing
- set level of dry sound independently and then add reverb
- easier to control level of reverb on a large fader – don’t need to open any plugs-ins to make changes
- since several tracks are mixed before going through the reverb, they sound like they are in the same ‘room’.
In general, use no more than 4 reverb plugins per mix. These could be a short bright plate, medium room, longer hall, and a special effect reverb.
This will help keep your mix from getting muddy and unclear.
