Reverberation and delay effects are widely used in sound reinforcement systems to enhance the mix relative to the desired artistic impact of the program material. Modulation effects such as flanger, phaser, and chorusare also applied to some instruments. An exciter "livens up" the sound of audio signals by applying dynamic equalization, phase manipulation and harmonic synthesis of typically high frequency signals.

The appropriate type, variation, and level of effects is quite subjective and is often collectively determined by a production's engineer, artist, or musical director. Reverb, for example, can give the effect of signal being present in anything from a small room to a massive stadium, or even in a space that doesn't exist in the physical world. The use of reverb often goes unnoticed by the audience, as it often sounds more natural than if the signal was left dry. The use of effects in the reproduction of modern music is often in an attempt to mimic the sound of the studio version of the artist's music.
