Hi,

With VI libraries I like to add MIRacle after MIR PRO, to glue things together (in combination with a little compression). I mix it in conservatively, because I like to have most of the tail from MIR.

Conservatively seems sometimes still too much. What about using the "Abbey Road trick" on the master? That is, sending the MIR-processed stereo signal to two busses: one with hard low-pass, and the other with hard high-pass. Each of the resulting bands will be applied a different degree of MIRacle to apply a different algorithmic reverb to the highs and the lows. Three band would be even better than two, to give the middle frequencies their dignity.

The signals coming from the MIRacle instances would then be mixed back o the master.

Would this make sense?

Multi-band operation can make a lot of sense when used carefully. As a matter of fact there are even dedicated (meta-)plug-ins which allow for multi-band operation of any other plug-in.

That said, I don't see the dire need for frequency-splits in case of reverbs, really. This might have been necessary in the wild analogue days of Abbey Road ;-), but we have _so_ many options to sculpt our digital reverbs today directly in the engine that I haven't run into a situation which called for that approach. 

IOW: Try it and tell us what you found out! :-)

Dietz, thank you very much for your answer. I guess the EQ included in MIRacle can already shape the sound as needed. And if the mix is fine, everything should work well. I'll do some experiments.

Something I was not considering is that MIR has a Room EQ. This is the most direct and effective way to remove excessive low frequencies from the reverb, if needed.

Yes, it is. And you can use different settings for different sources on the same stage!
