The joyful day!

Effects are not (always) your friends

So ... I'm sitting here at the studio (such as it is) working on a song ... and I'm adding a big background reverb (using that BLOOM setting) running from the guitar's electronics ... and miking the guitar ... so the reverb won't saturate the "real" sound ... just be underpinning added on ...

Problem is ... I had to finally take the reverb out of my headphone mix ... since I kept going

"ooooh ... pretty" ... and forgetting where I was ... and I really do need to add vocals later ...
