    Default Chorus pedal placement

    Hey fellas,

    Just looking for advice on where to place my Chorus pedal. I purchased a Boss Chorus Ensamble pedal a while back, but really never had time to dick around with it. At that time I was going for a chorusy type of vibe, but that changed, so I barely used the thing. Now I'm wanting to place the chorus pedal back into my rig, but am looking for the perfect place to put it.

    In the loop I've got, digital delay, flange, phaser, eq, sonic maximizer. On the floor is an OD pedal.

    Should I place the chorus on the floor with the OD? Or in the loop?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'd recommend putting it in the loop... Here's my pedal board order in my loop.

    Tuner, digital delay, phaser, chorus, Uni-Vibe, Analog Delay.

    If you did run it on the floor... I'd probably go OD then Chorus.

    Maybe try both and see which floats your boat sound wise.

    Sorry if this seems like a stupid question...I am just basically a bedroom/weekend guitarist but why does it even matter where it is in the loop? Would it change the intensity of the effect?

    i love the chorus ensemble.
    i run mine ibanzez tube screamer, chorus ensemble, dd-3 analog delay, phase shifter then a hendrix wah (i like that high end). and its all boss except the wah and tube screamoriffic obviously.
    definetly chorus before delay.

    haha is my setup proper? sorry to get off topic but its the same pedal so why not ask.

    not a stupid question, but yes, it will sound different in the front vs the end.
    neither is wrong, just a matter of what sound you want.
    applying an affect that already has other effects will change what it does to the sound. in the case of sucka.. chorus, phase, flang are all based on the same princible of what it does to a wave form, so the most logical place would be where you have those other two effects.

    thats why I love my old rack units everyone has dropped to go back to floor units. I can program several ways and then just switch it with a midi channel.

    I'm one to put chorus, flange, and phase effects after delays; I like that the "tail" of delays is manipulated by the wavering effects of the others.

    That is cool too. No rules, just tools.

    One noticeable difference between Judas Priest and Metallica...
    ...Judas Priest only has one gay guy in the band.

    There are no rules on effects order. You won't break any pedals by putting them in a 'wrong' order. In fact, experimenting is the best way to learn, and in doing so, you can come up with many unusual and interesting sounds.

    How do you like the CE-5 ? I've been tweaking it for a while now, trying to find a good sound close to "Humans being". The CE-5 is all I have, because I don't have the money to drop on an Eventide, but for you, and anyone that owns the CE-5, what settings do you use on this pedal to get that sound ?
