Uneven Reverb Tails

I'm working with altiverb (convolution verbs) in stereo with a mono snare. I wanted the snare to kind of blow up into stereo as it hit the verb however i noticed that most of these IR's have an uneven tail. It's really annoying because i want the snare to sit nicely in the middle but these uneven reverb tails are messing up the image.

So my question, is it normal for stereo verbs to have uneven tails?

I assume your talking about some uneven decay between L and R? It really depends on how the impulse responses were recorded, what the room really sounds like, etc.

You might try compressing the wet reverb output signal with a dual mono/unlinked stereo compressor with both channels set to the same settings. If one side gets louder it will get attenuated more and may help even the sound out. YMMV.

real stereo yes uneven

if it was faked with panning then maybe the same
