There are two good reasons to place the reverb after the loop:

1. You want the reverb in stereo and you probably do not want to spend a
second looping device just for this (Echoplex can be stereo synced)

2. While building the loop you maybe do not know what clima will come up,
so it is very interesting to be able to change the character of the
ambience, say the reverb time, while the loop is running.

So far just with two synced Echopleci
