I'm trying to dial in a great Uni-Vibe sound, but I can't seem to get the sound I want.

The sound I want is your typical Robin Trower-vibe, so can anyone help me with settings..?

Based on this video, Trower plays his Fulltone Deja 2 in Chorus mode, with the Intensity set at about 60%, controlling the speed with the expression pedal.

 

To mimic that, here's how I'd start setting up a patch:

Speed: Expression Pedal

Depth: 60%

Feedback: 50%

Volume Sense: 0%

Mix: 80%

 

Adjust from there. Keep in mind that setting the Mix to 100% initiates Vibrato mode, which is not how Trower sets his Vibe.

 

Trower sets his Vibe up first in the chain, so you should start there as well.

I just worked on this earlier today.

 

Speed: Expression Pedal (min 10% max 80%)

Depth: 100%

Feedback: 50%

Volume Sense: 0%

Mix: 75%

 

This is a little more Rotovibe/Zakk Wylde to my ears. Hope this works for someone.

The real trick to Trower tone is putting the Vibe first in the chain, before distortion....

However you play music using whatever gear you may choose that day-- the JOY of making it is the heart of it.

I found the sound I wanted on the X3 but I can't get it on the 500x. UNIVIBE. To hear it hit click on "univibe". You can hear it in this song on the melody during the verses. What I ending up doing was hook up my Roger Mayer univibe as outside effect. I still can't find that sound in the 500x.
