I'm assuming you are using Pyramix version 10.

For sending audio to a reverb (either a hardware unit or a plug-in), you should use an Aux. Group. The "Group" has the provision to have its output routed to a Mix Bus (so you can hear the reverb applied to your source material and have it incorporated into the mix).

The Aux. sends (without the "Group") are designed to send information to one destination and no further - i.e. to headphones for performers. Similarly, the Mix Group can have its output routed to another mix bus, just as you would if you were making sub-mixes, i.e. from a drum-set or from a string section, to be incorporated into to your main Mix.

Yes, it's a little confusing, but it's all laid out in the manual on Page 225.

Thank you very much for your answer ! I am also inclined to the described embodiment of you))) but the promise on the reverb can be done using a mix group .... clicking on routing and deliver value like -21 dB, and it works too))) with respect

Really, the only difference between the Aux. Group, and a Mix Group, is that a Mix Group can be routed to hardware outputs (so that you can, among other things, hear it). It's the "Groupieness" that makes it routable. That's why the plain old Aux. is no good for adding effects to a Mix, because it can ONLY be routed to a hardware output, and not simultaneously to any Mix bus.
