Does anyone have any go-to effects that they feel their p12 wouldn't be complete without? I'm particularly interested in checking out some reverb units, but I'd be interested to hear anything that folks are into.

The Strymon Bigsky is a natural pick.

Big Sky would probably be great. I use an Eventide Space and absolutely love it.

Eventide Space here as well. Irreplaceable.

Recently I got a Strymon Deco to use with my P12. It's very subtle, but it can make the 12 sound a lot warmer. Also I use and OTO Bim for additional Delay, sounds fantastic.

The H9 is amazing... ANAZING.

But my answer to the general question is: the best Eventide box you can afford.   H8000, Eclipse, H9.

You could also do 2 H9s... That would be extremely flexible.

Just picked up a P12 Module and I'm excited to pair it with the analog keys and octatrack.  I plan to run midi out from the analog keys-> Octatrack-> Prophet with the prophet audio being pushed back through the Analog keys effects and then in to the octatrack.  Getting all my ducks in a row will take a little brain power but it should be a wonderful mix.

I have a Line 6 POD HD Pro X that I was using with my guitar and decided to run my P12 through it. It has a lot of effects and it worked out well.

Based on how much I see Eventide's reverbs and delays mentioned I've got to say I'm feeling pretty inclined to check into their stuff more closely. The Strymon effects seem pretty interesting too. I'll start saving up :)

To add to the previous question -- do you all tend to use the same effects for live performance as well as recording/studio use or do you find certain effects work best for certain applications?

There a number of comparisons with the Bigsky against the Eventide H9 on Youtube.  You should check them out.  I prefer the Bigsky sound myself.

In no way did I intend to belittle the Strymon effects -- I have several of them and they are TOP NOTCH.  And I agree with Igglethorpe:  if you want a reverb stomp box, and only ONE reverb stomp box, the Strymon BigSky is hard to compete with.   And you did stress reverb in your original question.

But if you expand the topic just a little bit to include all effects (choruses, phasers, flangers, pitch mod, granular crystals, etc.) the H9 is your box (unless of course you step up to one of the larger Eventide rack boxes -- even an older H3000 would be dreamy with a DSI synth).  I know this is the P12 section of the forum, but I once put my OB-6 through the H9 distortion algorithm... oh mother!
