    Hey all,

    lately I've been happy with the tones im getting for each instrument in a track but am having trouble making them all sound as one. In other words, a lot of the times the different instruments sound like they are in different environments. Even though the tones of each instrument are good the track lacks cohesiveness. Need to put them all in one space.

    Any advice?

    use the same reverb to put them into one space ... include a sub group compressor.

    if these tracks were recorded in different environments and there is a great deal of verb and early reflection than it might be hard to get them to mould together.

    I think that may be my problem, even with the same reverb, the reverb is not only processing the direct instrument sound but the reflections as well and anything else that follows!

    I havent tried the sub group comp, I'll give it a go.

    Thanks Kev,
