I use AUD-1 plugs for instance , and the LA2A doesn’t have a wet/dry control within the plugin ( waves LA2A , and IK Multimedia does ) , but anyway , besides that specific plug in , for amy plug , reverb … I wish Cubase had a wet dry fader knob available when you open the plug in ( where the bypass , sidechain button ,and presets are )
That way every plug in now has super easy parallel compression without having to add fx track + send it it bla bla bla . Also reverbs can be mixed to taste . also echos, amp simulators …
You can get very interesting reverb effects running them as inserts instead. Very short delay times/small room sizes and wet only get some kind of claustrophobic effect that’s hard or impossible if you have the direct sound in there as well. And it’s just a beginning. For emulating your general large space the standard send->fx channel is of course the preferred method.
Cant blame a guy for thinking outside the box… after all, this is a virtual environment based on the physical… Interesting suggestion, most of us would use sends, but to me it could be handy in some scenarios.
