Default Difference between FR and RR in QL Spaces?

Hi folks,

My guess has always been that FR is an abbrevation for Front Row and RR for Rear Row. However, ever since I purchased QL Spaces, I've pretty much only been using the RR patches as I personally prefer their sound.

What is the difference between these two, and how are they supposed to be used? Should I used both of them in any cases or always just one depending on the instruments position?

They are front mics and rear mics. I think one of the problems is that EastWest did not think it was necessary to release a manual for Spaces. There is some information on the product page, and I think there are some videos somewhere which I can't find at the moment.

Well, that's good to know... Am I wrong to constantly use the rear mics then? That sounds weird...

How does others use these different ones of spaces?

From the product page ...

Generally, all info related to the reverb selected is displayed in the interface window of SPACES. The following is useful information -

M-S: means mono in and stereo out. So normal stereo reverb, where the input is summed to mono before being processed.
S-S: means stereo in and stereo out. So true stereo. Each channel L and R is processed with it's own unique stereo impulse.
Typically an impulse is taken with the source on the left side of the stage and the right side of the stage. Each impulse is stereo. When they are put together you get a true stereo 4 channel snapshot of the space. We encourage users to use the true stereo versions of the impulses. The true stereo switch on the interface is an indicator, not a switch. It indicates what you have loaded.

FR: means front mics.
RR: means rear mics. These can be used to create a surround mix, or to pick a reverb that you like. Generally the rear is longer and darker.
FILTER: This allows users to limit the frequencies sent to the reverb, you can high-pass, low-pass, or both. When selected, a frequency response graphic will appear in the center window.
MONO: turn on to mono the reverb.
The last 2 additions are in the latest version.

That's all there is to it apart from choosing the reverb you like, everything else on the interface is self explanatory.

No. It is a matter of personal preference.

The total time EW has spent answering questions like these in these forums probably exceeds the time they would have spent making a manual.

Thank you for your response Jeff, and everyone else.

Is there any situation you could think of where using both at the same time would be beneficial?

There's nothing more to put in a manual that's why there isn't one.
