Mixing 101 - very basic questions

Recommended Posts

For synth tracks, Eventide Black Hole is becoming my favorite reverb for the bus!

yes, there are many ways to do it all but I will explain  why most people use 100% wet for their reverb bus.

If it is not set to 100% wet, then you are actually hearing 3 things:

1. your dry channel
2. your reverb return
3.  dry coming via return which is delayed for the reverb unit's AD/DA latency... which means you are hearing your dry signal twice which could result in comb filtering.

My general advise for reverb is KISS. Unless you have a specific use case to ride the reverb effect hard and/or use side-chain compression, just slap it as an effect at the end of the chain, and keep it at around -6dB or less. And if a synth has a wet sound, don't even bother, you can easily oversoak the sound that way.
