Hi everyone,

I've got a pretty simple question for you, in what order do you usually place your effects for vocals?

I'm in the process of building a little effects chain for live vocals. Our band plays rock/prog/electro/etc., it's a somewhat ethereal blend of genres, so I like to play with some effects for the vocals. Right now I've got a Boss DD-20 and a Line 6 Verbzilla, looking to add a compressor too (maybe the TC-Helicon Voicetone Correct?).

In what order should I place those effects? I'm pretty sure the compressor/de-esser should be at the beginning, but should I put the reverb before the delay? or after?

Thanks for your help! Smile

compressor first and reverb after the delay because you'd want the echos to have 'verb as if they're in a big room as opposed to having echos of the 'verb.

Thanks!

While I'm at it, does anyone have any impressions to give about the TC Helicon Voicetone Correct? I'd like to use it for the compressor, de-esser, "Shape" EQ, pre-amp with warmth for live vocals. Thanks!
