I messed with a rack limiter inside a processor a bit today. I believe they are offered in many processors these days (?)

First I tried the traditional way, at the very end of the chain. It helped glueing the guitar to the backing track a bit more (softening the harshness) but also hyped fx like the reverb a bit. Not much for the beginner as this tends to need some mixing skills and plug-ins can be better...

Then I tried at the begining of the chain which was interesting. With almost fastest attack, fast release and minimal ratio it very transparently increased the sustain of the guitar. More transparent than a compressor pedal as compressors tend to characterize pick attacks. Overall the tone felt a bit more "expensive" smile.gif

Finally I activated my analog overdrive (placed before the processor). The processors amp was set to almost clean, it took away the thinness of the overdrive making the tone closer to an amp feel. Just keep the ratio minimal to keep the noise low when testing, the aim is always adding a little spice to the sound rather than a very noticable change.

Skip to 8.25 in this video, anyone has a looper to try this?

Visited a friend who works in a major music store here. They recently started selling daddario products but the store was currently changing its design and there were boxes everywhere.

I noticed this pick in a small bag;

I couldn't try them as they weren't for sale yet but did look interesting. There is a barrier on the pick and if you give the wrong angle or keep the tip too long of the pick it gets in the way with the string. Thought it might be a cool idea for beginners or getting rid of a bad habbit for any guitar player.
