Reverb techniques

There's this sound I'm hearing on some records and in my head and I can't quite put my finger on it. You know how when you bury a track in a long reverb, it sounds a mile away? Well how would one go about getting that kinda thing, but without the long, mushy tail?

It's like the reverb is really pristine and there's not much "shhhhhh" sound to it, so it's transparent and just pushes the instrument back really nicely. I've only managed to get it sounding like a room reverb by cutting off the tail.

Try a pre-fader reverb with a short dark tail. Start by pulling down the source signal and listen to only the reverb return. Then blend the source track in to taste.

Might be what you're after

You can also EQ the reverb return, as well as adjusting the reverb and predelay times.

...or the reverb send. Rolling off some treble helps contribute to a sense of distance somewhat independent of Rt60
