    I use (like everybody) an extra hall for Snare, extra for Toms and extra for the kick. Would you suggest another one for the whole set?
    It sounds strange when youcan hear a Hall on the snare, toms, kick and the O.Hs and hihat is "dry".
    Thanks - Vagelis

    Are we talking a reverb setting here?If so, I dont know a lot of folks using any or at least a 'hall' setting on a kick drum....seems like you'd have a problem getting the BOOM out of a mix...Thats just my opinion.Kik is supposed to be "dry and tight' in my thinking...Again thats just me............

    I use a plate or room verbs for the drums and other elements in a mix. But I don't use a seperate one for each drum .... so I don't get the meaning of the original post. I like to use a "common" verb for several elements in a mix, especially if they are all related to the rhythm track. This makes everything sound as if it happened in the same "space". Only occasionally will I add verb to the kick or hi hat. Usually spill from the other mics is enough to add some ambiance to these elements..

    I usually use a plate and sometimes a room for the snare, and then often a room or ambience preset on the whole kit. Sometimes the kick gets a whole Eventide dedicated to it to get that way low end octave rumble and a combo of a very short microdelay and small room reverb.

    I almost never use a reverb on drums, because I use two omni mics as overheads.
    With that I have enough room sound, I like that purity.
    I use reverb when the drums need to be a little more big sounding.

    If you use different reverb settings on everything, the music will start to sound like science fiction. That's not bad, but keep it in mind.
