Two way stereo reverb and echo

Reversed stereo direction for echoed signal
  [vote for,

Echo and reverb are dimmed and slightly changed signals repeated at a delay.

But the 2way stereo effect reverses the direction of the delayed signal, so that the delay on the first side is longer and comes back only after the delayed second signal is received.

So instead of hearing
>> sigSide1, [side2Delay], sigSide2 ...[effectDelay]... sigSide1b [side2Delay] sigSide2b,

you hear:

>> sigSide1 [side2Delay] sigSide2 ...[effectDelay]... sigSide2b [echo2Delay] sigSide1b

       Can you explain it better? I'm awake, had 3 coffees and I've read it 4 times. I have a working knowledge of reverb, and I'm still baffled.
bs0u0155, Sep 10 2021

       well it appears that you hear it without the commas.
xandram, Sep 10 2021

       //hear it without the commas.//   

       But... commas are a kind of delay....
bs0u0155, Sep 10 2021

       well maybe that’s your answer then because I certainly don’t understand…
xandram, Sep 10 2021

       So swapping channels/sides as well as repeating? I don't know if an echo cave will affect a multi-spacial source to that degree.

       [bs0u0155], all you have to do is stick your head inside a Leslie speaker and you'll have this. (That is, if the rotation rate is half the signal rate)

       I have a wall full of gold and platinum albums that all featured heavy use of reverb and digital delay machines and I have no idea what’s going on here. If this can be done with one of those can you just describe the settings you’d use?
doctorremulac3, Sep 17 2021

       (As I understand it...) It's a different delay for each channel, instead of (I presume) the standard of a common delay. Possibly with some smarts as to which channel comes first..?
neutrinos_shadow, Sep 19 2021

       That's done all the time.   

       Delays aren't a standard thing, they're an enhancement artistically used to make the song better. So you'd say "Put some delay on it." like you'd say "Put some piano on it." The next question would be "What do you want it to do?". One rule of thumb would be it would match the tempo and create a beat that fits with the song but it's like a paintbrush, you can do lots of stuff with it.   

       This might be great but I don't understand it. If it's a delay that bounces from one channel to the next that's very commonly done.
doctorremulac3, Sep 19 2021

       No no, not "a delay is standard"; I meant " a common delay value for both channels (as opposed to a different delay value for each channel) is standard". Unless you (as the resident expert) have used different delays for different channels?
Maybe [pashute] can re-appear & provide some more clarity.
neutrinos_shadow, Sep 20 2021

       Yea, delays are just like colors in a painting, they take notes, beats etc and make echos of them that you can use on your audio canvas. You can have a note on the right side echo on the left, then back on the right ping ponging back and forth, have echoes change tone, get lower or higher, wherever your creativity takes you.   

       But as far as this idea I'm totally confused.
doctorremulac3, Sep 20 2021

       Never has a [thwarted-pineapple] been better deserved.

       //You can have a note on the right side echo on the left, then back on the right ping ponging back and forth, have echoes change tone, get lower or higher,//   

       Witchcraft. Left is guitarist #1, Right is guitarist #2. You can vary the delay by shouting at the relevant musician* to twiddle one of the many knobs on the floor. After the feedback dies down, we all agree we invented regressive metal for a reason, and the delay pedal is only to be used for playing the Top Gun theme to pass the time while the drummer sets up his 42nd cymbal.   

       *as opposed to the bassist/drummer.
bs0u0155, Sep 20 2021

       Addendum: I was assuming this was mostly for "live" effects, not studio engineering...
neutrinos_shadow, Sep 20 2021

       I have no idea what's going on.   

       Pash, can you clear this up? We're all confused. Intrigued, but confused.
