What do you think?
Either. But after is where I put it... its like having the trem in the amp. Also really cool if you wind up the delay for a wall of noise, and then trem that sound.
But again - it depends what sound you'd find more useful.
before. my last two effects are delay and reverb in that order.
i like it after. the delays can get muddy sometimes with the trem before, afterwards just seems so much smoother to me (the guy who currently isn't running a trem on his board cause he was dumb and sold his custom empress....)
I have it before my dd20.
after. just how it sits on the board really. But both are sound great.
my chain is boss temolo-line 6 echo park-boss dd20-boss reverb-amp
I cant think of any effect that would sound good between my delay and reverb (maybe a chorus, but a delayed chorus tone is too awesome to change) or after reverb before amp...delay and reverb are meant to simulate good room accoustics, where as tremolo is a volume changing effect...so imho delay and reverb should always be last...
As always, exceptions happen too...but generally, I don't think I'd use them both together....
talk about good chance of fading into the background, at least in a band situation, trem AND delay.
I always have my delay last, but I'd go with what sounds the best.
Trem last - changed my pedal order few years ago. Just sounds more natural to my ears having played amps with trem for quite some time.
Same here. Trem to me is useless if it is washed out by delay. I need it to make the echos throb.
Exactly. Just like if your amp had tremelo, it would be after your effects. I have some amps with trem, some not. Trem last (especially the Vibutron) sounds like the real deal to me.
Having delay after trem will weaken the tremolo effect (maybe you want that effect?). Also as was said, in fender amps, the trem is last in circuit, after the reverb. This modulated the ambience and keeps the trem effect from getting washed out. Placing it after your delay will have a similar effect.
well put TYY, thats what i was thinking... playing through blackface stuff at the church, the trem circuit sounds so nice! and its because the delayed sound is receiving a throb, not delaying a throbbed sound. and the trem is pretty decent quality too...
