Mix Reverb Returns - Landscape of the Record

I have a couple questions about the 4 mix reverb returns and your thought process/workflow:

  1. When you’re EQing the returns to fit the mix, what are you personally listening for? Do you want the verb to poke through? Or is it more about tucking it back enough to be less obvious, while keeping the length?
  2. When you send your delays to the verbs, are you patching the output directly to the delays, or is it a parallel send + blend to taste?

Thanks in advance for taking these questions! I’ve been wanting to ask these for quite a while. This ambience workflow has been my favorite “trick” I’ve learned for glueing elements together.
