Mix n' Match

Some time ago, I wrote an article suggesting that you could get interesting results on drums if you combined a dry snare with a fully-wet reverbed different snare at the proper levels, you could get some unique sounding drum and percussion sounds.

It just so happens that this works on synths, too. Try setting up a lead line on a dry (no reverb) synth lead sound. Copy that sequence to a new instrument track and call up a different synth lead. Now, feed the second synth lead through any sort of reverb you like with the wet dry mix at 100% wet. You can get some really striking sounds this way. Don't just try it with reverb either. Try distorting one layer and keeping another clean, etc.
