Hi,

I'm still a noob playing with recording my guitar. I am playing finger-picking and chord/melody on an acoustic-nylon with an under-saddle piezo pickup. I am recording straight into a little portable digital recorder (24-bit).

My questions are for when I master on the computer. Here's what I currently do:

1st ---- I apply some EQ to remove bottom end boominess
2nd ---- I apply some compression to smooth out the peaks and valleys
3rd ---- I duplicate the recorded track and pan one left and one right

Now, I would like to add some final additional finishes -- perhaps some chorus, some delay, and/or some reverb.

My question is --- typically, which fx would I apply first?

I've read that for "acoustic" guitar, adding some chorus can really "fill out" the sound. I've personally found that adding some delay can also add some dimensionality. I can play with the settings, but I don't know which order to apply the fx. Is there a "typical sequence" for applying the fx???

Thanks!!!

I would put the reverb last in line right before the amp, after the delay/chorus effects. It'll sound best that way cause the reverb will be spitting all that nice verb right at the head/amp.
