Here's a question for you knowlegable types...
I'm currently working on a track for a compilation, I have the basic elements completed, synth patches mostly, no percussion elements. When played back dry (no effects) it is missing something, a little flat, reverb gives it a nice, expansive sound, but it introduces a considerable amount of mud. It almost sounds like 'First Light' from Immersion 3 by Steve Roach, while I like that album, it wasn't the sound I was going for.
I've tried eq'ing the source sounds, eq'ing the reverb, and I've run each sound source through multiple layers of small reverb, and also put one big reverb on a bus and run all tracks into it just to see what it sounds like. It still sounds a tad too muddy.
So my question is... how do you use reverb on your ambient-ish tunes?
