I recently posted this on the VI forum also but bringing it here for your opinions.
i know this topic has been about a while and that there are numerous threads with different opinions, but thats why im here. I think i have overloaded myself with the various ways people handle the reverb of ERs and Tails and what suits various libraries.
I read James Semples thread on CF:
I agree this is another way simpler method but would still like peoples opinions on the topic below.
Myself and my clients are happy with the sound i get but i am always looking for a step up in my 'Sonics'
I use LASS (lite) for strings, a few VSLs for some woods and EW Platinum and storm drum for the rest. Also Cubase 6.5 Reverence for reverbs (sometimes the Sonnox Oxford rvb which had great ER parameters)
Ive seen SVKs post on the VI forum on how he creates 6 Rvb sends (3 ERs and 3 tails) but i assume this was for his VSL instruments which are completely dry and not for Libraries which have the stage, surround mics ect included.
My question is: How do you guys use separte ER and tails (if at all) with libraries with multiple mics (e.g. East West). Does it even matter??
Ive read its not best to use the ER send on mics with Stage, surround or ambience positions, but after some playing about i didn't like the sound. Most likely because i was doing it wrong :S
Ive seen methods where a separate rvb such as spaces is placed on the groups (strings, brass etc) and that the pre-delay and wetness is only adjusted to "put them in their place". Plus these groups had the various mic postitions all on the same channel.
thanks in advance :)
