Hey, I don't usually use effects other than a little compression, so I'm not sure if this is commonly done, or if there's something I should be using instead. I've tried using a little chorus to fatten up my tone at a couple gigs. I wasn't really happy with the sound. It worked somewhat, but something just wasn't right. Tonight I tried using a little delay to fatten up my tone, and I thought that it sounded stronger, fuller, punchier etc. I told the soundman what I was trying, and he told me that he liked it. I haven't looked in my owner's manual for my BMax yet to see if the DI is pre or post effects loop, so I don't know if he was getting it out front or not. Anyway, is delay something that is usually used to fatten up tone? I have a Lexicon Alex that all of these experiments are being conducted with, so the decay, delay, and the amount of effect are all adjustable.
