connect 3 effects on my board

Hello there,

i just wonder how to connect 3 effects on my Soundcraft m8.
8 mic/line in
4 stereo line in
4 stereo return
4 aux send (2 post. 2 pre)

the board got 2 post aux (already used by tc electronic M one Xl dual mono reverb)

and i would like to add a ping-pong stereo effect.

You question is strange because the answer seems kind of obvious... you have 4 Aux sends and 4 returns and you only want 3 efxs... so
The only question is efxs are normally run on the Post aux so that they will follow the level of the channel fader. Pre aux are normally used for monitors and stay the same level.
So as long as someones working the board no problem.

I don't get the question, it sounds like you already know what you're doing. The way you normally connect FX is post fader aux send out and effects return in or line in. If you don't have enough of those you need to patch, get a bigger mixer, or do it some other way, like with a pre fader send.

Looks like the only option is using 2 effects daisy chained on one post aux to free up the other post aux for a third effect.

I kind of like the idea to send from the Aux pre and return the effect to a stereo line, at least can control the amount of return without playing with Aux return via 2 small knobs...

Thanks Guys

ps; i'm still looking to get a bigger mixer such as StudioLive 16.4.2 or Onyx 1640i but cannot makeup my mind on those.
