  1. I've always loved reverb for all instruments...but does it have a use for bass?:confused:

    Sure, lots of folks have found a use for reverb on bass. Like any other effect. And, like all other effects, you have to be judicious in your usage. Reverb spreads your signal around across time, so look for tunes in which there are a lot of open, empty spaces to fill; and don't try to use reverb in a mix that is already busy or full.

    I use a really short reverb with not much delay time or reverberation to fatten out the sound.

    Technically, its the Chorus+Reverb setting on my ME-50b
