The article presents an interview with sound recording engineer Max Bacchin. To the question as to what sort of whacky effect he would use behind closed doors, he replies with a description of sending a signal to a small speaker placed over a toilet seat by placing an SM-57 at the end of the hole, and making the signal run from the microphone into a Roland distortion pedal for a low-fi reverb effect. He also recalls having made the sound of reverb pass through a phaser in a movie of Jenna Jameson.
