  • You ever finally "get" an effect?

    For the life of me, I've never been able to find a creative use for reverse delay that didn't sound like I wasn't trying to use it.

    I hope that makes sense.

    Put another way, I've never been able to pull off using it naturally. Like, not making it sound like I was forcing it in just to be cool or gimmicky or something.

    Totally.

    Never had a compressor before b/c I really didn't see the point. Then I was trading a guy for a Wampler Pinnacle, and he brought with him the Ego Compressor cause he was looking to get rid of it. I figured, "what the heck?" and tried it with my clean channel. Never again will I not have a compressor to spice up my clean channel or to give a little more to my low/mid gain distortion.

      I had a friend who loved reversed delay and I really looked up to him a guitar player, so when I got my first delay pedal (DD-20) I tried so hard to get a cool reverse delay sounds but I never could. So I gave up on it and just used the warp delay all the time. After like 3 years, I had gotten a lot more comfortable with my effects and was messing around when I tried to use the reverse again. I got what seemed like the perfect settings for it and was so proud of myself. But then next week I traded that DD-20 to get a DL4 because I was a baby influenced by lies. Biggest mistake of my life...

      I still don't get chorus though...

        Phaser. Hated it for years. Static up/down, whoosh, whoosh, whoosh = boring.

        Been using it a lot for Floyd-y textures and some single string funk riffs lately. Don't know why I like it now. :lem:

I think I write or play to impress the hot cool hippy chicks not mega millionaires actresses, thats why he sounds plastic.

            Played without reverb for ages. I thought it would make me sound like mush live. I decided to turn it up on my AC30 once, and boy was I retarded for not using it all those years

              I was like this with compressors until recently. When I was younger I had one and I would just turn it up as far as I could so I could instantly tell the effect was on. Now that I have one again, I'm learning to use it and I'm finding it very useful.

                This happened with my compressor and my tremolo. One day, as I was playing with them I realized how they should be used. It also continues to happen with my DL4. I learn new things with that everytime I mess with it...

                    Ring mods.

                    Well, not really. But they can sound cool at times.

                      Trem for me. Outside of that one Green Day tune, I could never figure out a practical use for it. Then one day I was playing sustained notes and thought, "I really need a light trem here." The rest is history.

                      I would say that I've grown into fuzz, but the first one I ever had was a Maestro FuzzTone, which was absolutely horrid, so I think it's just more about finding the right one.

                        Man ring mods were the first effect that immediately made sense to me!
