Mixing with Reverb and Delays: Mixing with Reverb and Delays http://homerecordinghome.com/mixing-with-reverb-and-delays/ PowerPoint Presentation: The other day I was getting towards the end of a mix, only to realize that I had slathered reverb and delay all over the song. After spending hours sculpting the perfect space, it had come to dominate the song. So, I started thinking about the rules and guidelines for using reverb and delay in a mix. As I searched the Internet, I found tons of information, and no clear consensus. PowerPoint Presentation: I realized that the experts are actually just like you and me. That is to say they have preferences and their own way of doing things. So, if you want to be an expert, you should probably get some experience in the field, mess about with delays and reverbs, and then adopt an uncompromising opinion on the “rules of creating depth with time-based effects.” PowerPoint Presentation: Pick your reverbs and delays so they best compliment the sources they are effecting. For example: - Bright reverbs on dark sources. Dark reverbs on bright sources. Open and smooth reverbs on dense, harder sounds like snare drums - Dense, coarse reverbs on smoother sounds like clean guitars.

Take the suggestions and throw them in the blender with the rest of the stuff we find here.
