Reverb, echo, delay–generating replications; and maybe a transmutation of Benjamin?
In the fields with which we are concerned, knowledge exists only in lightning flashes. The text (reverb) is the thunder rolling long afterwards. Walter Benjamin, The Arcades Project

It should almost go without saying that I am very enthusiastic about delays and reverbs and echoes. On my garage sale quests I am always hoping to find an old mechanical delay. No luck, yet.
It turns out that guitar pedal shop Electro-Harmonix has a pedal guru, Bill Ruppert. He’s been showing what you can do using pedals as modules in signal chains in which one leans into the so-called Send loop, into which the Wet sound, or effect-alone sonic product, is fed.
He gets impressive, even magical at times, sounds–as this video demonstrates.
Moving effects into the DAW using GuitarRig and other software makes doing similar sonic transformations even more accessible.
