lip flap delay
I looked too, but before that...when I was in high school,
Jarvis, no not the Pulp dude that melty danced with,
but Mike and I and this guy denzig (!)
did some out there trio stuff in dudes garage.
One thing that has become indispensible to me that Jarvis
had at the time was a Deluxe Memory Man. Unforgettable.
The things just got this tone. And it wiggles and yeah,
you know me. I bought one in '98 and it rules...
I think some time before that I bought a PS-3 Pitch Shifter/delay
that gets these really cool loop things going. It makes
stuff get fucked really quickly like turning a cupcake
into a roll of spilt nickels or something! I love that shit.
It's also got a few stages of single and dual pitch shifting
which are both cool. >>>quick aside on the subject <<< so my
foray into PShifts went to the purchase of the super shifter
which not only has this queer color to it, it does this flutter
effect where if you hold down the pedal, it will studdd-dd-x-x-d-d-d-ddrer
like an 8mm film burning up. it's weird and it's the first
"intelligent pedal" where it does bends automatically that you
preset with the knobs. It's all over Bowie's Reality record which
I really like as well. I sold it before I came back from
LA, sadly, but the guy I sold it to told me about Stereophones (the instrument)...
another time. So I bought the newer whammy and let me tell you,
this guy ain't dumb. The coolest feature is that is will sweep
up and down one full step like it's swaying. I take advantage of
that like nobody's business when it's least expected. my other
sound i'm really into now is the down a 4th setting. heavy!!! <<<
Last year I found this DSD-2 digital sampler/delay that
has the ability to record a few seconds and then play that back
and edit it. I basically just use the delay/tap, quick echoing
feature. If you check out the top track on the hex machine
myspace page, before that "left field lead" business begins,
theres this little crunching trainwreck that happens and that's
that delay. It's an old boss thing that I'd never seen before and
haven't since elsewhere. My other which you've seen is
that korg unit that just is rediculous. It's got so much mania,
I try to stay away from it unless keyboards are involved,
but that thing too has this "pressure" pedal that works on
just that...how hard you step down. I haven't looked on the page
in awhile, but even parallel to his music, you should check out
Nels Cline's website which is www.nelscline.com
he's got personal reviews of some out there stuff and he's just an
amazing guitar player. He makes me feel like SY owe him big time!
