    Generally speaking, sounds at a distance tend to have more highs rolled off than closer sounds, and you hear more reflections (kind of hard to manage if you're already heavily using reverb). You may need more of a "foreground" sound to put the farther one into perspective.

    Prodyspace is a plugin that works fairly well for automating the process somewhat though. http://www.gersic.com/plugins/hosted/prodyspace.rar

      great topic! hope others will contribute to this! - for the time being, what may help you to put things "in front" (as opposed to far away) is the pre-delay setting in your reverb. most of the time this is defined as the timespan between the sound and the first reflections bouncing back...somewhat counterintuitively, the longer you set the pre-delay (within reasonable limits), the "closer" the sound source appears. so, while this is a pretty fine brush, it might help you "painting" a nice depth field with your reverb.

        Yeah, I think if you're already heavily using reverb it will make your task a little more difficult so you maybe want to include sounds that are definitely up front to provide a sense of perspective. Roll off some of the higher frequencies and play with the pre-delay as the others have said. Also, I think set your send on the "far" sounds to be pre-fader to really go deep and then pull back on the fader. The farther away the sound is the more you will be hearing the reverb and less of the actual sound.

          The other thing in addition to putting a lot of reverb on something is to make sure it has its own space carved out in the mix. Make sure it's not conflicting with any other part of the mix and that way you can 'hear' the distance that the reverb imparts quite clearly.
