  • The 'Outboard' category refers to all outboard signal processing equipment, including reverb, delay & other effects, dynamics processing, parametric and graphic equalisers, instrument pedals, active crossovers, harmonisers, exciters etc. (but excluding mic and instrument pre-amps − those are in the 'Other' category).
