Layering reverbs

Hello David,

Reptil asked you question previously about 'recording and layering'. You mentioned layering reverbs:

"I am a reverb fan, so I'll also layer those. This came about from not having great outboard to start with, but realising that just taking 2 different budget reverbs actually sounds WAY better than it should, so I still do that with my Lexicon 300 and EMT 246. One is dark and warm, the other is richer and brighter."

What did you mean by that? Is this mixing or sound design technique?

Thanks,

-Olivia

Hi Olivia
Yes a mixing technique
I simply mean combining two distinct reverbs in parallel when mixing, so using 2 linked aux sends on the console to go to two different reverb units (or having one send going to both reverb units via a splitter). It simply means you have 2 effect units working as one and because of this you can create a richer effect or hide any individual weaknesses of each reverb..
Cheers
David
