Common Studio FXs units are electronic devices that alter how a musical instrument or other audio source sounds. The most common studio effects are now employed through the use of the software package or sequencer – these normally called a ‘plug-in’.  In the old days when both milk and petrol costs were under a Pound these would be separate units, each built for a different effect, most commonly they are all found within the DAW you are using.

The earliest sound effects were strictly studio productions. In the mid to late 1940s, recording engineers and experimental musicians such as Les Paul began manipulating reel-to-reel recording tape to create echo effects and unusual, futuristic sounds. Microphone placement (“miking”) techniques were used in spaces with specially designed acoustic properties to simulate echo chambers.
