Select pitch glide from the pulldown. You'll need two since its a mono device and assign these appropriately L/R in the signal chain.
Set one to Left and the other to Right at your taste and requirements do the following.
I usually set my pitch shifter at either
-6, 45% and +6, 45% (EVH style) works well for hard rock/heavy metal
in conjunction with ducked stereo delays (370-400ms, 22% regen pan r>70)
-5, 45% and +5, 45% (Lukather style) works well for blues/bles/rock/fusion
in conjunction with ducked stereo delays (300-400ms, 22% regen, pan r>70)
Diff people like Carl Verheyen use pitch values of -12 +5 in the studio.
The classic rock stereo pitch is -11L -11R or -13L -13R very wet (like 70-85%) for more wet dry wet 80s stuff
Crazy drop tuning stuff is in the -100 pitch zone gasp!
The very basic way to get a doubler is the same way you set it up in a TCE 2290
with one delay at 30ms or 80ms. Elementry Holmes ...
My Rocktron Prophesy has an amazing doubled lead patch with
PAN completely to the right, delay time 16ms, Regen 0%
You've got a lot of options.
From my experience in the studio a combination of very short delays in conjunction with stereo pitch shifting is the ticket for recording w/o totally faaking it up.
For live I keep stereo pitch at 45% wetness otherwise it gets too estrogeney mushy
I personally don't like any delay shorter than 224ms starting in the basic Ritchie Blackmore tape delay zone. I'm not a slapback country guy dig?
have fun with it -
