Heavy reverb a la the Fleet Foxes and Cat Power
I'm not a profession audio engineer. Just a guitarist and songwriter with a home studio. I'm working on a project where I'd like to use heavy reverb similar to what you might hear on the Fleet Foxes record or Cat Power. What is the secret to heavy reverb? My forays into this area have resulted in rather messy and splashy mixes. Tips and tricks? I'm guessing that the thing to do is use a plate or in my case a convolution reverb. Does the reverb need to be EQ'd? Pre-delayed? How many seconds of reverb will get me in the neighborhood?
