Snare reverb?

For everything after the recording stage: hardware/software and how you use it.

:lol: :lol: I'm enjoying the laughs here. As far as I'm concerned MOF wins with his agricultural and oil refinery equipment.

Thanks Alasdair. I won't be giving up the day job to go into standup comedy though, I'm dreadful at telling jokes. :)

I recently acquired Exponential Audio's Phoenix Verb for a mad price. It has a 'sizzle verb' which adds life to snares.

Generally, I use plates for snares or even springs. Both work well depending on the context.

It was, like £9 or something... Clearly iZotope are blowing out the old EA plugins - it will be interesting to see what they have Michael Carnes working on for them going forward...

Decent 'verb that one. Certainly glad I snapped it up too, my friend.

I always hesitate to chime in on matters such as these as I believe it has so much to do with context and taste. Is your snare in a military marching band or a Flock of Seagulls cover band?
That said, there is an excellent article in this month’s SOS on what are all those knobs for on reverbs. Well worth a read if you’re interested in reverbs. It helps to know all the variables that make up a particular sound so that you tweak your reverb to get what you want. Or you can pick through presets to find the one that works for you.
For me I’ve recently been playing with the Exponential Audio verbs. Very deep in the ability to adjust parameters.

That's why I bought the UAD AKG BX20 no boings. I couldn't afford the GBS back in the day, I had something even worse.
