You don't normal your console's sends to any FX inputs?
My 4 sends are normalled to an LXP-1, LXP-5, M300, and #4 is nomalled to the headphone amp. The default patches are usually a quick modulated delay, a longer delay with feedback, and a Random Hall. It gets changed up, but it's just as easy for me to leave them at a familiar starting point as to leave them unpatched.
