In this episode I demonstrate the Slate Digital Verbsuite Classics reverb plugin on drums. I typically use three different reverb types to build an over all drum sound that can fit will in a mix.

This is a video that was requested by several viewers. I was asked to show people how to go about organizing your plugin list in different ways as well as saving favorites within pro tools. I also added a few quick keys to help speed up your workflow.

Have a great Holiday weekend and keep an eye out for all those great Black Friday deals!
