Insert Effects and Aux Effects
To avoid connection errors, it's important to distinguish between insert and aux effects. Their operation is different, so their integration in the audio path is different too. That's why it's important to distinguish inserts from auxiliaries to process a signal.

I just read this article and I must say, I really enjoyed it.

Quote:
That's why inserts are usually used for effects that change the waveform of the audio signal, like dynamic processors (gate/expander, compressor/limiter), saturation/distortion effects, bitcrushers, de-essers, filters (EQs, wah effects, etc.), audio restoration tools, and psycho-acoustic processors (harmonic generators, stereo width processors, etc.).


We've also mentioned that an aux adds an effect without actually changing the source signal, which makes them ideal for effects that are mixed with the original signal. We are talking about "acoustic generators" (reverb, delay, echo, etc.), pitch effects (harmonizer, octaver, pitch-shifter, etc.) and modulation effects (chorus, flanger, phaser, etc.).

A special remark: if you have the choice, use a post-fader aux so that the effect amount (ratio between effect signal and direct signal) stays the same, regardless of the fader position in the channel.


Very good information to have, right there...
