Delay into Reverb and Predelay

Hi all,

For vocals I have been routing my vocals into an aux send with an eventide eclipse using the micropitchshift delay setting then routed in series into a reverb.

Since the eclipse is adding delay already, should I be keeping the predelay on my rev erb at zero, and adjusting the delay via the eclipse?

That seems to be right to me, but maybe I should be adding predelay on the reverb unit too (which is what I normally do).

All the units are at 100% wet and I mix the returns to taste.

What do you do?

Cheers,
Lumen

Do what sounds good to you heh

On my EMT 140 plate i use an external delay but when i use the Lexicons i use there internal pre delay

i would probably not feed the output of the eventide to the reverb; I would bring the outputs to the console, And then send the eventide to the verb through another Aux if i wanted it to have verb

I don't think it really matters. See which one sounds better.

I would expect them to sound identical, and it shouldn't really matter. I would tend to use the predelay in the reverb, and only use a seperate delay if the reverb lacked one.

The idea of using a delay that adds some color or diffusion or modulation can add some interest to a reverb.
