    How do you mix dry and ambient libraries?

    IE: SAM Brass with SISB with VSL STRINGS.
    Do you apply reverb to all? only dry instruments?

    I usually apply reverb to all. With the case of SAM, this really gives the impression that brass players are sitting at the back of the room, while the VSL strings are up front - without additional tweaking. The SAM stage mics are ideal for this - though depending on the sound you want, the far mics will also give good results.

    Depends.

    I like putting reverb over all, and using fairly ambient brass and wind samples. This saves me from having to use a seperate reverb for strings, winds and brass.

    I go 95% dry samples .. hardheaded some say, for me it seems to save me from yet another part in the work process.

    I usually add reverb to all samples but EQ out the really low muddy stuff from the master verb.

    Sometimes i send the mix to two convolution plugs on seperate busses: a really short and wide one, so everything sits more in the same space and a long one. I EQ both of them since IR's tend to boost certain frequencies. 2.8 seconds tail at relatively low volume works nice for me.
