Request to admin wink.gif

How about a course on effects use. I have been working in the Eye Opener Collab and Kris gave me some pointers for my effects. I would never have known about these little tricks.
Just the basics for setting each of the most common effect and how to use them along side each other would be great.
Of course, if you could base the course around the Boss ME80 that would be awesome because I have one wink.gif I also have Amplitube.
Just an idea but I think it would help. Most student will have a couple of pedals or a multi effect and won't be getting the best out of it.

Thanks

Phil

Thanks Bogdan,

I think many students have distortion, chorus, delay + many others but don't really know how to get the best from them, we all know how to turn the knobs to get long delays, high gain, etc BUT, as Kris showed me, to make it part of your tone without sounding like an effect is a different matter. Thinking of food, a pedal doesn't have to be the main flavour, a bit of salt here, a bit of pepper there, a little oregano, a little cumin, all combine to make ONE taste without actually identifying on single element. It would be nice to have guidance in how to apply herbs and spices in a subtle way to add an overall sound.
Obviously effects have their place to dominate the sound if that's what you want but subtle colouration can be very very sweet wink.gif
Compressors are greatly misunderstood too, I know I don't get them at all unsure.gif

Hope this makes sense smile.gif

Cheers

Phil

This is a cool idea - but the tricky part (as always) lies in creating a lesson that is generic enough for everyone ( people have different softwares and different vision of how they want to sound) yet still useful.

However this could be more of collab style thing, is that what you were thinking? Basically a collab where the sole purpose is for people to dial in a cool sound they're happy with.

That is definitely doable and actually a very cool idea.

or maybe having a thread specifically designed for settings or pedals.amps etc.. ? or something like that

Thanks Kris,
I hadn't thought of it being a collab but that would be good if we knew how to get the most from our gear in the first place tongue.gif I was thinking more of a workshop type thing where each effect is covered showing the most common features of each. I know units vary but there are some features, like feedback for instance that I would think most delay units have or maybe some units have it called something else. Obviously there are gong to be some pedals that have unique features but that can't really be covered.
The advice you gave me in the eye opening collab was great smile.gif that's what sparked this idea wink.gif
Cheers
Phil

Phil - sorry, a workshop was the word I should have used. I think we're on the same page, and we should do this.

Basically a thread where everyone would try to get a cool tone over [the same!?] backing track. We could then help each other out to get the best possible out of the gear/software we're using.

I'm reminded of watching guitarists fool with their knobs and stomp on pedals and only hear small differences. Seemed like a waste of time, get to playing. When I wanted to stomp on a pedal I wanted it to knock my head clean off and then dump salt into my shoulder hole. Seriously.... I was at a stage in my playing that I couldn't think about the gear as I could barely play.

Nowadays I'm taking more time thinking about how small a adjustment or effect can go a long way. I'd definitely benefit from a workshop like this!
