Default Connecting rackmount effects unit to mixer....Help needed!

Right im trying to figure out how to connect my rackmount reverb unit to my mixer for vocals as their are no onboard effects on my desk,
would i be right in saying i should wire into the aux send from the reverb unit and then wire from the aux return to the line in on a specific channel?

Yes, a cable from the aux send to the input of the reverb, then a cable from the reverb output(s) to channel(s) on the desk, (if you have a stereo reverb and spare channels). Then you can use the EQ on the channel to further shape the reverb. Oh, and if you have pre-fade and post-fade outputs on your desk, it's better to use the post-fade ones.

If your returning the the effects to a channel remember not to turn up the effects aux on the effects return channel. If you run out of channels at some time you'll have to start using the aux returns for effects. What board do you have.
