Room Re-Verb? What to do about plug-in?
« on: September 23, 2009, 10:44:43 PM »
Let's say the recording room has natural re verb, is it necessary or needed to use a plug-in?  Plug-in to much in this case? OR would it be best to capture the re-verb in room with a delay and call it done? What's your opinions?

I sometimes use plug-in reverb over recordings made is spaces a little to 'tight' and boxy sounding (for example a Piano recorded in a living room). Can help to smooth things out a little.

If it sounds better/good then do it. Generally tho most bands play in very live sounding environments and adding reverb is a backward step.

If you are recording instruments in a controlled setting then I usually try to get the recording as dry as possible and add my own reverb/delays/effects later. Gives much more post production flexibility.

But if the room sounds good, then record it.
