I recently posted a piece... and was told that I had used to much reverb and not enough articulations. Well, I knew that I had written all sorts of articulations... maybe the reverb was masking everything else?
My settings were about 70% wet/ 30% dry... and that was to much. I was told to start at 100% dry... slowly adding wet until I thought that it sounded good, and then Back it off some. Suffice to say, I ended up with about 30% wet/ 70% dry. It was ironic that that was the opposite of my previous settings, don't you think!?!
After reposting the track, David (who started all this in the first place) was amazed at the difference in clarity. All the articulations, he thought that I should add in there, were there after all. As an example, of what not to do with your reverb... and to show what a difference the right amount makes... David thought that I should post both versions.
Here they are...way to much reverb and just enough reverb
Do a little experimenting to find that sweet spot for your reverb.
I have to thank David once again for his insight and advice!
