Order of effects

Post by valiant » Mon Dec 28, 2020 12:23 pm

If I’m recording an electric guitar and using the guitar amp effect along with, say, echo, reverb or EQ, does it matter whether the effects go before or after the guitar amp effect, going from left to right across the effect button panel? And what about the effects themselves, echo before reverb or vice versa? My ears can’t tell the difference but maybe other people can. When playing live, obviously the effects go between the guitar and the amp but on MTS, I don’t know!

Yes, this makes a difference. The Guitar Amp introduces distortion and changes dynamics. This depends on the input signal, so it behaves differently if you apply EQ before going into the amp.
