What Are Send Effects

Send effects are a different way to add effects to your sounds. Normally, you put an effect plugin on the mixer channel of your sound, and the effect will edit the dry sound. These are called insert effects. You insert the effects on the mixer channel.

With send effects, you make a dedicated mixer channel for a certain effect, and send the dry sound to that mixer channel.

  • For example, you can create a mixer channel for reverb. You send a part of the dry signal to that reverb channel. Hence the name send effect. So now you have the dry signal on one channel, and the reverb signal on another channel.

So in short, with insert effects, you do something to the sound, and with send effects, you add something to the sound
