Effects & Processors

What are Effects and processors for live sound? These refer to things such as any effects or preamps that are used in the live performance or live stage setup. For example, if a singer would like reverb, delay or chorus on their vocals then an effects processor will be necessary for this. Many mixers have effects built in. However, for those that don’t an effects processor could be your solution. Furthermore, these effects and processors often come in the form of rack mount units.

Having said that, many singers and vocalists are starting to invest in their own portable vocal effects processors so that they have full control and consistency over their sound. Popular portable effects processors include the Boss VE-20 or the TC Helicon range.
