Hey everyone. I was wondering if anyone knew of a good website that has good explanations of all the different amp effects that are out there - what they do, how they work, maybe some examples of well known artists/songs that use them, etc. I have a Behringer GMX110, and I have just recently gotten curious about the details of all the effects that it has. The manual gives a brief explanation, but I am looking for a little bit more. Mostly curious, but I thought it might help me out when I am trying to get my sound similar to another artists also...thanks! :)

I like the MonkeyFX guide to effects. Pretty amusing to read, and fairly descriptive, without being too technical. As for who uses what, I know I've seen a site that details the gear of lots of different artists but I can't remember the name right now... I'm sure someone around here has it bookmarked...

That Monkey FX site is pretty funny.

Came across this link a few days ago - may even have been from somebody on this site. Can't remember now. However it does quite a good job of explaining how different effects affect your sound. Haven't got round to reading all the info on there yet but it looks pretty good.

Enjoy.

Here is a very good site I like that explains different effects and what they do, and even gives suggestions on pedal chain order.

THIS one is basic but has everything you need including what order to put the effects in

I don't have any sounds associated with the page yet. By looking at it, it will have your imagination coming up with the unlimited possibilites for tone.
