“As a rule I try to stay away from longer reverb times, especially on percussive type instruments. The accumulative effect of all the different reverbs seem to clutter up the mix, thereby robbing it of transparency. I believe that reverbs, when properly used, can create a three dimensional effect in your mix – giving it height, depth and width. Use reverb to enhance the natural groove of the song by timing the reverb cut off point in tempo with the groove.”
