Save from cutting down on cpu usage, why would you want to send reverb to an aux channel? If reverb is supposed to make the sound bigger, would you pan the reverb channel to the opposite side as the instrument? How would you make multiple sounds sound big while just using one aux reverb?
I am asking because I am trying to learn how to get a big, ambient sound in my tracks, and I think my reverb does not sound as good as it should. I do not send the reverb, i just place a reverb on each strip. A "typical" song for me has about three guitar overdubs, bass guitar, and drums.
ALSO: Can I use a different mic/amp on the reverb track? For example, ribbon mic on the guitar track, condenser on the reverb track (for the purpose of brining out different frequencies). Or does it not work that way? Could I eq the reverb track to emphasis different frequencies?
Any help greatly appreciated. Sorry about the long question, but I just need a few things clarified. Thanks in advance!
