eventide effects

Super happy with this setup. I recently downsized from a board twice as big that I felt unnecessary, I had two more fuzzes and another eventide that was way underused which I traded for the MXR; the carbon copy is an amazing delay eventhough dark, I have no issue with that however and I find it works great. The catalinbread is a cool delay too, I have it set all wet with no delay though.

However I feel I may want to replace the hardwire, it sounds great and I love how clean it is (also the instant Shields soumd 😝) but I don’t think it really works as a standalone effect. I use the modulated setting and even if it is notoriously weak I have figured out how to get some washy modulation from it but I still feel like it only works to compliment other effects and that doesn’t really work as I play music with many quick changes; a reverb that would be noticeable as a cool effect by itself would therefore be a much better option.

Other than that I have tone for days! I get great chunky distorted sounds and lovely ambient soundscapes; I maybe may get a good FSU pedal to compliment during freakout-oscillation jam sections, other than that really content with the setup.

This is definitely a cool setup, damn. I feel you on the Hardwire, sounds like the digs are good though. Thanks for sharing. I still haven’t played that cattybread yet, so sick though. The Pitchfactor is always bae, hard to utilize the crazier stuff it has going on but when you can it’s so damn rad. 

Made some changes to the board since the last post, and brought the board home from the practice space tonight for more changes.

I bought an H9 Max which has been amazing and I don’t see it going anywhere, in fact I’m adding an expression pedal just for further control. The Haymaker is practically always on; I just love what it does to my sound and gets me that edge of breakup clean sound that I can’t get enough of. The Black ‘65 is new and still finding its place. The RAT is just being a RAT and devouring everything.

The Strymons are awesome and the trem on the Flint is my favorite thing ever, to the point my band mates give me strange looks now because I turn it on for songs that don’t even need it. Playing around with the DIP switches on the SL Drive to find its place on the board, but for now the RAT is as dirty as I need things. Might use the SL as a cleaner boost if I can tweak it to do so.

Can’t wait to wire things back up and really excited about the expression on the H9, since I loved it with my Pitchfactor. Might look into getting a full size volume pedal as well :D

THE GREEK CLASS || listen

Julian, at the head of the long table, rises to his feet and lifts his wineglass. “Live forever,” he says. And the rest of us rise too, and clink our glasses across the table, like an army regiment crossing sabres: Henry and Bunny, Charles and Francis, Camilla and I. “Live forever,” we chorus, throwing our glasses back in unison. And always, always, that same toast. Live forever.

PLEASE LISTEN TO THIS.

This has been my main music project for a long time, and I’m submitting this to a competition tomorrow. I have worked for months upon arranging and playing every single part on this cover. I don’t want to sound arrogant, but the final result is fucking amazing. The high synth parts are my favourite. I have never been more proud of anything in my life.

I really hope I place in the competition, because I’ve worked so hard on this piece. Anyways, please let me know what you think! Because of my awesome job at Long and McQuade, I got to use their professional studio to record every single part. It was an amazing experience.

Here is the list of all the equipment used:

Bass Guitar: Gibson USA 2014 SG Special Bass

Acoustic Guitar: Ibanez AVN1

Electric: Gibson ES-339 Hollow Body and an Epiphone Les Paul

Synthesizers: Roland Jupiter-80 (chorus w/delay and echo/reverb setting), Roland Juno-Di (high synths w/vibrato, low synths, bridge synths w/edge and fuzz, power chords, vocal enhancements, and piano w/reverb)

Effect Pedals: Boomerang III Looper w/reverse delay setting (backing guitars) and Eventide H9 Harmonizer Multi-Effects Pedal (lead acoustic)

Amps: Fender Deluxe Reverb (both electric guitars), AER Domino 2.A (acoustic guitar) and Roland KC-550 (Juno-Di and Jupiter-80)

Editing softwares: Apple Logic Pro and Pro Tools

All parts arranged by a-class-act-president (by ear), and was inspired by the instrumental version as made by Tegan and Sara as well as different covers found on YouTube.

Sound editing done by a few of my co-workers at L&M.

Recorded in the back studio.

Enjoy! :)
