His response was that you could use one reverb for the whole song and have independent wetness levels for each track using its respective send. That made sense to me, so ever since then I've done it that way.
Now this thread has me rethinking it... hmm...
No way! I went to the same community college! haha.
I've done it the same way as well, but I've mostly been relying on stereo room mics for ambience. Now that I have the PF2626 I can finally record more than one mic at a time compared to my Mbox Mini I used to have ha.
