Which reverb(s) are you using?

Thought this would be an interesting topic to discuss.

I somehow always end up using the Stage reverb, dialed 9-11 o'clock. The Hall reverb somehow doesn't sound ok to me...

What do you use mostly?

It depends on the sound and type of music. Also the setting, the room and amplification can all make a difference. I play in a 4 piece rock band , so I need some air, but not so much that I drag & drown it. For organ soft stage or even room maybe enough. For piano I use soft stage at 2.5 -3.5. For synths, especially brass - Stage 3.5-4.5 . Halls only for pads or some electronic music if needed.

I find that anything above the Room at 5 without the "bright" engaged is too much for live performance. The others sound great at home with the synthesizer sounds like brass and strings, but too much for the piano. For live performance, too much reverb and I get lost in the mix and mud. ( NE 6 has room, stage and hall).

Hall is brilliant for effects - actual drifting-in-space moody piano, crazy swirly strings. The others are right, the more deep in a mix you are the less individual reverb (and the darker) you typically wants. Room reverbs exist for a good reason! But then sometimes you need a huge wash of space for a recording or an intro or as a pad. So they each have their place and I use them all (and more! Eventide’s Blackhole on the space and their modechoverb are two other favorites of mine).
NLA1, NL3, NS3, Prophet Rev2, stack of Elektron, some Moogs, s*** to record with, etc. yadda yadda you know the deal blah blah gear.
