    Hi there would you generally have your reverb on the drums in stereo or mono?

    Mono for kick and bottom of snare. Top of snare and cymbals with a little of stereo.

    If you cut the lows off the reverb wet signal it doesn't matter really. You can use it to make your mono kick and snare sound a bit wider.

    Note the point about equing the signal *before* the reverb plugin.

    I have all my reverbs in stereo, and sometimes even skew the output a bit using a mid side processor to boost the side and attenuate the mid slightly. If you want LOUD, overdo this and compress at the end of the signal chain (with sidechaining against beats if "necessary").

    I used to place a stereo width plugin on the atmospheric reverb bus and automate te width before a drop
