It's usually the norm to send channels to a send effect channel for reverb FX purposes. You can have more than one reverb sends and you can also send more than one track to the same reverb send.
I just noticed recently that I was paying no attention (or very few) to panning of the reverb channel. Creating different spaces at different places in the stereo image. I'm sure it's a common practice but some questions arised.
Is it better, for a given send reverb, to pan the whole reverb channel (will result in all tracks sent to this reverb will be pan to the same space, no matter where these tracks are panned in the mix themselves)
use the send bus to pan each of the sent tracks individually, so they will be reverbed in the same space they are panned in the mix
use the send bus to pan each of the sent tracks individually, to different places from what they are actually panned in the mix (for example, I experimented to pan reverb of each tracks exactly at the oposite field of what the tracks were in the mix).
Oh god, sounds confusing as I read it again...
Anyway, any creative use of the reverb spaces in stereo you'd like to share ?
