02 Dec Pro-tip: Sometimes stacking unorthodox plugins after one another can produce very interesting and useful results.

Normally, placing distortions after reverbs is a bad idea but with enough fiddling and extreme enough settings you can stumble across artifacts and sounds which are actually very useful and unique.
As a side note to this, if you’re working on percussive material with lots of reverb and distortion, a gate somewhere in the mix can help to shape and add structure to the sounds and generally clean it up. Gates can be useful before or after extreme distortion or reverb.
