Hi UG!

Sorry for my first post being a thread, but I couldn't find anything when i searched.

I was wondering if there is a reverb out there that has an fx loop, similar to the EHX superego, where you can put other pedals in the loop to alter the sound of the reverb. Like, put a chorus for mod reverb, or a octave for shimmer or whatever. I just realized that would be kinda cool.

So, what do you think, is there anything like that out there?

Sorry man, i can't think of any myself, but have gotten similar sounds using the stereo-out of my reverb pedal to run to two amps. One dry/clean, one wet/reverby, running in to an octave/chorus/delay/whatever-else, to the second amp.
Have gotten some really cool sounds that way!

You can also get the same effect through one amp using a mono Y-splitter

(see this EHX thread/video to get an idea, except using the reverb pedal to split the signal, and a single Y-splitter to re-join them: http://www.ehx.com/forums/viewthread/2328/)

Just curious, what purpose would that serve? What are you trying to do?


You could get a long reverb going with a rotary on it, for instance, without having your dry signal being fed through the rotary.

Thanks for the reply and idea! I was actually just curious since it seems like quite a non-revolutionary idea. I mean, with the eventide and strymon stuff out there, reverb has gotten a lot more advanced. This seems like a natural follow-up.

I play ambient/post-rock-ish music with a band, so reverb is kinda essential to my sound. Thing is, I imagine that using the same unique reverb on several songs will be boring eventually. It would be nice to customize it more by putting stuff in the loop

Well. It seems I cannot find a reverb with an fx loop. But for those interested I found a delay with one, by a spanish boutique company http://www.servuspedale.es/#!productsyodel/ceds

Electro harmonic puts effects loops on a few delays as well.

I couldn't find anything about reverbs. It's odd because it seems like a really good idea.

A complicated version would be to split your signal into an A and B. Then put a reverb that's 100% wet in the B side with, for example, a chorus behind it. Then run the A and B back together somehow and into the amp. This way, when you turn on the reverb, it cuts out all dry signal in the B chain. And then the chorus will only effect the reverb. But you still get your dry sound in the A chain. It's probably not worth the trouble though, as there are so many co reverbs out there with all sorts of odd modulation on them.

i know of no standard guitar pedal style products that do this, but it is something that could be fairly easily done in a daw.

thanks for the tip! Although, I stalked effectsdatabase for a while and look what popped up http://www.effectsdatabase.com/model/flux/liquidambience

EDIT: btw, I recognize you from the gear for post-rock thread. I've been a long time lurker there, cheers!

Why not just put other effects before and after the reverb. I imagine you intend mixing the reverb with other effects since you're looking a pedal with an effects loop.

Yeah, thats kind of what I am already doing, the question was more regarding if someone actually was making this kind of thing
