I hope this is the right place to post? We ran sound for a band last weekend in this bar that was about 30 feet wide, 150 feet deep and the walls and ceiling was a solid plastic looking material. We have a Lexicon processor we run looped in our board. We usually like a live verb type effect and a little compression. Well when we mixed this band we did not use compression only live verb. The mix is muddy anyway due to the accoustics in the room. My thinking is we should have used compression because the live verb effect along with the accoustics really made the mix muddier. Does compression smooth out muddiness like that? In that situation do you turn off the reverbs and start off with the compression since the room has crazy reverb anyway? I should mention our gear, we have 2 15's with horns, 2 18's with crossovers. Also our board is not the best it's a Carvin 12 channel board with only one effect return, so that will soon be upgraded but just overall any feedback would be appreciated with effects like that.
