One thing many home or project recorded tracks lack is a sense of cohesion. It’s likely because everything was recorded at different times in not so musical spaces (i.e. a bedroom). You can be left with disjointed sounding tracks, and that’s no fun.
Having Something In Common
A great way to give your tracks that unity they desperately need is to “glue” them together with a simple reverb effect. A touch of verb on your tracks (the same verb) is a quick and easy way to give your mix a sense of space and focus.
