    For those of you who mix with the Spitfire Symphony Orchestra, what reverb do you use to bring other instruments into its space well?

    Here’s a great starting point.


    Best of luck!

    Spaces II is pretty fantastic. Find a hall you like that includes instrument placement and apply to all your orchestra sections. Then add overall a good hall sampled front and back and gently add that to everything, the orchestral way of 'gluing' everything together. This outperformed, for me and my libraries, following Allan Meyerson's instructions, though that sounds pretty good too.

    with front and back you mean a quad setup or do you use two types of IRs stereo?

    Haven't watched that Alan Meyerson video. Can you elaborate? Does he use Spaces?

    I'm pretty sure any basic hall IR would do the trick with some equalization to help match the sound of Air. I would also think it wouldn't be too hard to create an Air IR using your Spitfire instrument and a sharp, percussive sound. I'm not sure if that would violate a EULA, however. While I appreciate the Air "sound," I'm not sure it's worth the effort. Another alternative is to Deverberate the Spitfire instrument to get it a bit drier and find a suitable alternative hall. I've experimented with the latter with varied results.
