Overuse of re­verb is an ob­vi­ous sign of an am­a­teur pro­duc­tion. Un­less you’re go­ing for a spe­cific spe­cial ef­fect, re­verb is best used spar­ingly, as it can over­whelm a mix. You can sim­u­late a sin­gle sound­stage by us­ing a sin­gle re­verb on an ef­fect send, and ap­ply­ing dif­fer­ent amounts of it to each in­stru­ment to sug­gest its po­si­tion in this ar­ti­fi­cial space. Also, our ears get in­ured to the sound of re­verb over time, so take reg­u­lar breaks, or as­sume you’ve used too much and re­duce the re­verb af­ter a lengthy ses­sion.
