I know a lot of people like their chorus before delay, who likes it after instead?
Chorus->Reverb->Delay. Never understood why its the norm to put the reverb after the delay, I want a repeat of my reverbed tone, not have my original signal and my delayed signal mushed together by the reverb.
I have my delay before chorus and though I rarely use the two together - I like the warbled delay effect.
I've always treated it like reverb/trem are pat of an amp, therefore I go pedalboard -> trem -> verb or pedalboard -> verb -> trem.
I am a chorus after delay guy (last in chain, no 'verb pedal)... That seems natural to me if you're not using modulated repeats.
Non Dirt/Boosts that I like after Delay
- Leslie & Rotary (not counting Uni-Vibes/subtle Vibes...meh you get the point)
Non Dirt/Boosts that I like before Delay
Well, Eric Johnson for one. His clean signal is: Boss DD-2 (or EP-3 Echoplex) into a TC SCF chorus into a pair of Twin Reverbs. He's got my favorite chorus/reverb/echo sound.
I'm a big fan of this trick.
One of the things I like about it is that it turns a light chorus into somthing quite dominating when the delay is on..... thus changing your overall tone alot.
Its a very good way of having alot of different textures out of a small number of pedals.
I've always used delay last in my chain of effects, with reverb coming after, as it's on board on my amp, but you guys are making me think I should experiment with my line up. Thanks!
And if you have a reverb pedal afterwards, it's worth experimenting w/ the reverb settings for a really big sound.
having an M9 has made stacking different FX in various orders so much fun.
i've been doing Reverb into Delay for a while in the studio, and the results are gorgeous. Though sometimes i want that definite repeat to be heard, so live i usually run Delay into Reverb.
i was hoping to snag a simple Reverb so it would be like this:
Reverb-> Delay-> Reverb
but now you've got me thinking about Chorus...
Alas.... only reverb is on the amp
