Listening on your website - what are some of the key steps to creating that level of space and air in your music? If most of those comps contain a large amount of live instruments, that might explain it to some degree.
How much of the air and space you achieve is just simple panning? Do you always try to pan to realisim? ie. where instruments are typically placed on the stage?
What is your usual effects template for sample instrument compositions? How do you usually apply reverb/EQ - and what reverb/eq do you use? Maybe the less effects the better in most cases?
For someone just learning how to apply effects - what approach would you recommend. ie. just start using a straight reverb and then progress to convolution etc?
