What do these effects do?
Chorus
Equalizer
Synth

You spelt n00b wrong.

chorus is kinda like a rate effect i think, makes it sound a little funky.
an equaliser is a piece of equipment which changes guitar fx such as the ones youve named
synth im not of

Chorus makes it sound like theres more guitars playing in your signal, but its just your sound like some odd times over depending upon how much you use.
Equalization, or EQ, is not really an effect but a tone shaping device, it controls what bands frequencies or pitchs you cut and boost. Synth is neat thing that changes the sound of the instrument to violins, pianos, and keyboards. although all have their uses, i like my signal really dry. no reverb, just distortion from the amp and my 31 band eq.

chorus is rad... it's like a really fast dealy(sometimes so fast the dealy isnt audible) but the "delayed" signal is played back partly out of tune... so it sounds like two guitars... really cool stuff....
like they said eq is just something to shape your sound with... alot of times it's as simple as bass, mid, & treble...

i'm not sure if you mean like a synth keyboard or pedal for guitar or what.... but it's pretty much for synthetic sounds...

chorus is great for when you are playing clean, but i am getting to the point where effects just get in the way, all i really need is distortion.

i have a chorus pedal and i have used it for a whomping 0 parts for my songs. if you want to sound like kurt cobain, chorus away. but it has no place in metal.

other than chuck, who used it in his leads, and i hate the way it always sounds anyways


you are ignorant, dumbass

ha... maybe because you don't know how to use one... i play all sorts of heavy shit and i find my self using alot of fx in my material including chorus.

i'm not ignorant because i KNOW what i'm talking about and can prove my points... you're just saying shit like you know what you're talking about... chorus being "absolutly useless??? my ass... it's one of the most usuable fx ever made in my opinion as well as thousands, hell, maybe even millions of other guitarists. you can just use it for a suble smooth chorus to add texture to your cleans or you can make creepy melodies with heavy settings & mega distortion. ect...
like every other effect, it has it's place. metal is easily one place you can put it...

you sissies can fuck up your signal with all sorts of little gadgets and doo dads but ill stick with my sound. chorus sounds decent for some jazz, but overall it blows

and never once did i say "all effects suck"


and bls, shove it

i never said i use effects. im not particularly partial to them. but if other people do, its their choice, and im not about to give them shit about their tone, because unless hes in a band with me, i could give two shits about their stuff.

we never said you had to do anything... but to say what you said... well, it's ignorant.

i don't get how my intellifex "fucks up" my signal.... it's in my fx loop, when i'm not using fx, it's like it's not there. you wouldnt be able to tell the difference between my signal with or without a bypassed intellifex in the fx loop.
hell, i bet you wouldnt be able to hear much of a difference between a signal with or without a big pedal board with over half a dozen pedals in front of your amp.... because the signal loss would be barely audible.

no it doesnt "overall blow".... i've gone through this.... me and tons of other guitarist use chorus for all sorts of music. and it sounds great. whether i'm playing jazzy stuff or grindcore, it can work...

EFFECTS ARE ONLY AS GOOD AS THE PERSON USING THEM!
your being a moron doesnt mean chorus is bad at all.

how can chorus be any worse than say... a flanger, wah, envelope filter,delay,reverb,phaser,ect????
the point of effects is that they "effect" your sound. if you don't like chorus then don't use it in your own rig... but don't be a complete fucking idiot and say stupid shit making yourself look like a fucking retard.

have a nice day
