I've never used sends too much because I've always felt that they are hard to manage. eg- if I have a mix that sounds perfectly balanced but I want to add reverb to a piano track (without making the piano LOUDER) using a sends reverb won't help me because the more piano signal I *send* to an aux strip (with reverb on it) the more I'm actually *increasing* the piano LEVEL itself, hence there is more piano signal in my mix and now adjustments have to be made to attenuate the signal... Isn't this true? How then can I make sense of effectively using sends? Thanks!
