FX Saturation

Is it common practice to apply saturation to FX such as reverb and delays? I see with Soundtoys Echoboy, one can apply saturation to the delay within the plugin.

The idea is to give the Delay an analog color. I have a few plugs that have a saturation feature and typically don't need/want to use it. Obviously some people dig it though.

I agree. Exponential Audio's two first main reverbs for example were 'split' between the "musical" one and the "realistic" one. The "musical" reverb definitely had unrealistic but "sweet" effects on presets. I'm not sure it was saturation (it probably wasn't) but the thinking is the same I believe. It just adds something to the reverb which some people like.

Okay, so it’s not common. It’s more for the mojo and flavor some people look for in their fx hence why they would even do something like that.
