In this free video tutorial, brought to you with the support of Waves, we show you a simple reverb trick that you should be setting up in your DAW before you dig into any mix. Try loading three different styles of reverb each with their own stereo effects return (using buses and auxiliary tracks). In the mix blend a little bit of each style of reverb across key tracks in your mix. Try to avoid using just one reverb in a mix as unsurprising you’ll only get one sound. Multiple reverbs, all with their of unique timbres, will provide you with immediate access to a pallet of ambiances and colours that together will help you to add instant depth and interest to your mixes.
For a speedy workflow in Pro Tools you should be making good use of the Expanded Sends mode in the Mix Window.
