  • FxForum, i need ya help! - What kinda pedal would be able to recreate this sound?

    for all i know, there is already a pedal readily available that does this...

    anyways...

    ive recorded two albums or so worth of material on my computer (and you can listen to it all in my signature) but on a few songs I recorded the guitar through GuitarRig in to Ableton and used some of their FX. one of the effects i used is called "Cut Off" -

    check out this song.. its the guitar chord at around 1 minute in.



    heres another song i did that uses the sound a little bit more out front. just listen to the guitar for the first couple seconds.



    ive heard some tremolo pedals that might be able to approximate the sound, but i have yet to see a pedal that does the full on cut off sound. sorta that REM guitar sound, i guess. one that has a sorta tap-tempo feature would be fantastic as well.

    anyways, thanks for the help! - id rather not have to run my guitar through my laptop!

    Sort of sounds like a tremelo paired up with a digital delay set to the same tempo.

    Might be wrong, but I hope that helps.

      hey you could use an externally triggered gate with a drum machine going to the trigger input to do that and potentially do all sorts of complex patterns.

            sounds like the tremolo sound Spacemen 3 used to use a lot. they used an old Vox Repeat Percussion - there's loads of clones of this available. the circuit is pretty simple too if you want to make your own.

                  That would be a trem with a square wave, depth at max.

                      I could do this with a TR-2

                        I second this statement, check out Catalinbreads Semphore - awesome trem pedal.

                            Great thread and great songs, OP.

                            Perhaps a Goatkeeper would do tremolo like this as well, plus tap tempo and varied patterns?
