Effects help for recording.

What's up guys... I'm a long time lurker on other HC forums and am looking for a little advice before I go in to record my next album.

 

My music is mostly hip-hop and rap and I do most of the sequencing and songwriting on my computer with a keyboard controller, but am considering adding some guitars for edge on the next album. It's still 100% in your face hip-hop, but I'm talking about bringing it to the next level.

 

What sort of crazy {censored} is out there that can add some whacked effects to the mix? I'm not talking about lame metal {censored}... I'm talking beat.

 

What you got?

Black people played Jazz, and White people stole it from them.
Black people played Blues, and White people stole it from them.
Black people played R n' B, and White people stole it from them.
Anticipating theft, Black people got together on a Sunday afternoon and decided to create something horrible. They came up with rap and hip hop as a revenge on whitey.

P.S. Sorry I cannot offer any advise.

Doesn't have to just be effects on the guitar. Not sure if you've messed around with it, but I'm a sucker for distortion on drums. Just really filthy sounding.



Thanks for being a bro. Yeah... I've got all sorts of {censored} running post after the drums and bass... filters, distortion, you know. It's all patches off the soundcard though. I'm considering picking up some external effects to run in the loop.

You might enjoy a Fuzz Factory. That'll give you much better (or cooler to me anyway) distortion for the drums, and it's awesome on guitar, and you can do some crazy oscillation stuff, and I'm sure you can sample that and do some cool stuff. Guess it depends on what you want to spend. Maybe some more stuff that you can't do too much of on the computer, some more oddball effects or something. Here's another idea, you know any songs that have an effect you like? We might be able to tell you what it is.

I'll look into that too. I'll see if I can get up some of my clips from my last album to give you an idea where I'm coming from. I don't listen to rock or anything like that, so I'm really just coming from the rap/hiphop scene. Just tryin to bring something fresh.

I don't hate and I'm not a prick. I don't even know fag emo {censored}, and I apologized for not being able to help.
