Before I ship this out to a client. Wondering which of these sound better. One I'm using a stereo spread effect, the other just a smidgen of reverb. I'd send them both, but I don't want the client to think I don't know what I'm doing. If this was a classical track, I'd definitely go without the FX. But the FX may work better in the popular music realm.
I think I agree with Lisa. I felt the NO FX version was easier to listen to. The one with FX seemed to be slightly disorienting to me with my headphones on.....like a surround effect was moving around me and I couldn't quite nail down the feeling of the tune. Hope this helps.
