    Ambience for Dummies

    I have never worked with reverb before Ambience so I need help. The presets are nice, but if I knew what to do to tweek one I could come close to the sound I am looking for, problem is I don't know what the terms mean - I have used gate in some of my audio apps. Is there a tutorial out there that explains the relation between gating, decay, shape, damping and EQ and how it effects the sound?

    I am trying to find something between Ballroom 1 and Church. The church has a bit to much "echo" but I don't even know what to move to reduce it. After that, I may need to change something else, but one step at a time.

    I really don't mind reading, so if there are some books out there that could educate me, please don't hesitate to recommend

    Ok, that reduce the amount of the setting, but what if I want to sustain a piano tone just a bit longer? Would I increase the lenght of the release?

    When I look at ballroom and then church, there are many things that have changed. If I better understood what each thing does, I could come up with the setting between the two I am looking for. I have a bit of an idea how something work, but do not understand how they work together.
