Hi Johnny, just doing some reviews of your videos and have a question regarding using the combination of reverb and delay on vocals.
Being an "Old School" type of guy and lots of live shows using delay and reverb in that capacity, I've always been told that the best way to get really clean sweet sounding vocals with those effects was to "Tuck" the delay inside of the reverb. Reasoning was that with the delay first followed by reverb, the reverb actually helps accentuate the delay. The tail of the delay fades smoothly into the tail of the reverb creating a more realistic sounding echo. What's your opinion on this idea? After all this is studio, not a live performance so possibly it doesn't matter in the studio environment. Just curious that's all. Thanks.
