EQ'ing FX (Altiverb & Echoboy)

Howdy Mark,

A couple questions concerning your use of reverb & delay--

1) Do you typically EQ your Altiverb and Echoboy sends? If so, how? Are you using a high/low pass filter on either? Do have any go-to settings?

2) Do you include any delay plugins after (or before) Altiverb in your FX send?

Thanks!

Caz , I wish I could give you a better answer than all of the above. On echo boy I just open it it up and make whatever I feel is right for the song. Sometimes I use the filters in the plug in and sometimes I use an SSL EQ or Futzbox . I put it before altiverb or after depending on what I am trying to achieve. I use the altiverb EQ , leave it flat ,and use other EQS. . Crap I am not being much help here am I. I stack multiple reverbs or delays as well or side chain the delay send or use tremolator after reverbs.

No, I completely get it. I started putting a filter on before Altiverb using what apparently is ye olde Abbey Road method of rolling off 600hz and everything over 10k. But I have gone down as far as 3k for a dark 140 plate for drums. So, yes, it always just depends. 1,000,000 thank yous for responding. Really appreciate you and your work!
