@Fab I have never found some one that make more sense in a musical way, when we talk about mixing than you, Being from Brazil it is so hard when some one talk to technical to romantic for me, it loses the art of it! The man you're an artist! Learning a lot from here glad I found puremix

Ah, thanks for clearing up about the sends Fab, was about to ask myself until I read that. Absolutely love these videos, found out about this website through squarecad podcasts, these are top notch.

@ Bibiboucledor . I use sends for all my reverb unless I'm trying to do something really specific like a vintage sounding mono plate on a tambourine for example. It's really a work habit thing, it's not right or wrong. Since I use reverb as sauce I like to spread them on many different tracks, hence the sends. Some early reflection type reverbs are easier to dial when inserted on the track too. It does not happen that often.

Hi Fab, Great video, very interesting and fun ;) Just one question : About the "Office", room and Hall reverb : Do you insert them directly on the track, or do you use the "Send" ? I would say that you're using the Office in insert and the 2 others by Send, but I would like confirmation ;) Thanks ! Gaby
