#AudiotentTip 271. Reverb into Distortion.

The most common placement for your reverb plugin is at the end of the processing chain. Adding reverb at the start of the chain and feeding it into distortion/saturation can deliver some excellent textures and sonic differences.
Placing the distortion after the reverb gives a more lo-fi and upfront sound. Whereas placing the reverb at the end of the chain can lead to a more laid back feel in comparison.
