 Hi everybody,

this might be a very dumb question, but I'm not a professional and use VSL products just for relaxation and to express my musical ideas to myself and some friends. I've been working with MIR Pro for quite a while now and I really love it. Now, I've added Vienna Suite to my collection, mainly because of its EQs and the Exciter.

After playing around with the Hybrid Reverb I kinda liked the sound when I put additional reverb into my master channel (after all the reverb and spacial orientation that had already been applied by MIR). Yes, I like the sound, and I know that if it sounds good it's ok to do so ;), but I'd just wanted to know if that is the right way to do?

Can you actually use both reverbs (MIR and Vienna Suite) together? Am I "overdoing" it, or is this a common practice to add additional reverb in the master channel after MIR?

Thanks a lot and keep up the great work!

Cheers, Michael

Michael,

Vienna Suite and MIR make a great team.

Placing this reverb on your Master Channel is an all or nothing approach.

Perhaps it's better served on individual channels, you may want some sections to sound roomier than others.

No wrong way to do it.... and no dumb questions.

Yes you can make sure the MIR signal is dryer than it is wet, and turn MIR's reverb down a bit, but most important

is you having fun and enjoying what you hear.

The rest is just opinion...

Ahhh yes.....

MIRacle does work well in the Master Channel.

 Thanks a lot for the replies, everyone!

Yes, I have tried MIRacle already, and I will try using Hybrid Reverb not on the master but on different instrument channels to get some instruments / groups more "wet" than others. Best way to do so would be post MIR, right?

Thanks again Smile

Hi Jacen, 

Maybe you can get the desired result with the dry/wet slider in the instrument icon? 

Best, 

Paul

Paul,

thanks for the advice. That's clearly an idea so simple I couldn't think of it myself Wink

Also, re-reading the MIR manual actually helped a lot, as it clearly states that one can use MIR and Hybrid Reverb together. So after all, it was a dumb question. Smile

Now I'm realizing a mix similar to the one shown on page 49 of MIR's preliminary manual with MIr's wet signal send to MIRacle only on a separate bus and original reverb time reduced.

Thanks again!
