    the right order: Stereo Image before Reverb or visversa?

    sponsored links


    ***Advertisments***
    greez all,

    i just ask myself which order would be better:


    first adjust the stereo image of a track and then adjust the reverb or visversa?

    as the (stereo) reverb does affect the stereo image i think it should make sense first to set the desired reverb for a track and then adjust the outcoming stereo image with a stereo imager.

    the only problem in this theory is that the reverb is a send effect and the stereo imager would be inserted into the insert chain of the channel so it can only affect the dry signal. this fact makes me finally conclude that it might be better first to set the stereo image (insert) of my dry signal and then set the reverb (send).

    please tell me what u think is wiser...

    raspects,

    Re: the right order: Stereo Image before Reverb or visversa?

    I consider reverb a critical part of panning and imaging, but much is dependant on your style of music. For classical or film style music your desire is to place instruments in a virtual space. The pan pot is a poor tool for doing that. A much better one is Cakewalk\'s DirectX plug in Soundstage (aka FX3). This plug in allows you to place instruments in a virtual space and determin mic placement relative to your instruments. You still use the p[an pot, but only in very juducious amounts.

    Here\'s a link for more info;
