How do I add reverb to my master track?

I'd like to add a touch of the same reverb to everything equally in order to "put it in the same space."

I'm aware I can add the same reverb in different amounts via the Send knobs / Return tracks; this is not what I want to do.

I can add a reverb to the master track directly, but this results in a serial effect (dry signal is lost as the wet's turned up), and I'd like to run it parallel (keeping 100% of my wet signal no matter how much dry is there). Basically, I'm just wishing the master track had the same Send knobs as all the other tracks.

Anyone know how to put a parallel reverb on the master track?

    put an audio effect rack into the master channel. create 2 effect chains. put nothing in the first chain. in the second chain put a reverb at 100%, and turn the volume all the way down. start playing your track and turn the volume of the second chain up slowly until you like the sound.

    this technique works for any kind of audio effect that you would like to run in parallel.
