What’s your favourite effect? I don’t mean favourite plug-in, though if it produces an unusual effect, that might be the case. I mean the effect that you find yourself using a lot, perhaps over-using, the one that inspires you most.


My favourite effect is convolution reverb. It’s so incredibly versatile and I find I can create soundscapes at the touch of a button with it, with very little need for fine-tuning. Plus it produces the most convincing reverbs.


I’m also a big fan of the reverse echo as a buil-up to something dramatic. That’s something I have to stop myself from over-using.
