You know it makes me laugh, weird effects have ALWAYS come natural to me. I can always make the weirdo things that should sound gimmicky and stupid work in NORMAL song context. Things like Ring Mod, Talk Box, Whammy/Pitch Shifting, etc I can always just make work for me. But normal effects like trem, reverb and wah I have problems getting to fit into songs.

For me it was flanger. As a bass player, I always get the urge to play Tool (it doesn't help that my flanger is a bf2) but I finally found settings and such I can use in my own music the other day after some tweaking

I've always been a Mesa guy, to the point where my first tube head was a Dual Recto. For years I never "got" overdrive. All it ever did was thin out my tone and it generally sounded like ****************. For years all I could think was "people actually like this sound?"
Then I plugged one into a Marshall. Suddenly it all made sense.
I never really thought the reverse delay on my DL4 was that usable; just seemed too wacky to me.
Then I got my Superdelay and fell in love ... I discovered how great it was for swells and for pulsating background rhythms and such... the SD's reverse is, w/o a doubt, the most usable reverse I've ever used.
