FX buss question

I just set up a reverb FX buss on it's own track in reaper- I have figured out how to send the tracks to it and how to +/- reverb amount etc.
Do I leave the reverb track on mute during playback as the track has some reverbed out audio coming out of it- will I still get the desired effect on the other channels if it's muted?
Am I to assume you can only put one effect on each effect buss?- I tried to add delay to the reverb buss and I couldn't find the delay send level - just the one from the reverb(did they mix together on the track?)
What am I gaining by doing this universally? Most of the time I have been able to add multiple effects to each channel without any CPU issues ( sometimes delay will give some jitters to the tune in the first 15 seconds but thats about it)
Will this glue my mixes better?

Apr 19, 2014 11:48 am I was hoping somebody would have read this and had a decent answer for you...I'm afraid I don't, use tracks that way so I have little to add...maybe bumping this to the top of the list will get some attention drawn to it.

Apr 19, 2014 02:00 pm That is awesome, I had never seen that one, but I still rely on the old, trusty, Steinberg Magento...the simplest, awesomest, grooviest analog saturation plug I've ever used...I'll be super curious to hear this one from Waves tho, they don't do anything half-assed.
Apr 19, 2014 03:26 pm For the helluvit and as an experiment I am recording my entire next project on my old yamaha 4 track cassette machine and uploading those tracks to reaper. I did a quick little piece the other night and it sounded HUGE! Gonna be kind of fun I hope.
May 28, 2014 12:04 am I have been using an FX buss now for my last few tunes. I like it. I just recorded some live drums and a buss for reverb for them, then for guitars and for drums. I like it better for the use of reverb since they are all drawing from the same source. sounds real.
