Hi, i am looking to get that thick almost fuzz tone in the low frequencies that paul gilbert and Now days joe satriani tones have. I tried to get it with a fuzz, but it is too much. i know paul gilbert uses a supro drive to get that. Satriani, i am not sure, he changed his rig since his new amp and chicken foot, which i like the way it sounds now. anybody has an idea what disto block i could use to get that ? I have not find yet something close to that result. cheers olivier
Latest song I've just finished, using an HD500X, called Prime Vinculum. Does anyone else who writes music find that it always takes longer than you think to get an acceptable finished version? Appreciate any responses, good and bad. Hope you enjoy it. Now off to re-record the bass parts of my other songs with my new awesome 1205E. For anyone interested in a brief description of the concept of the song read on, else ignore at your pleasure: The idea behind this song is the strong nuclear force. The force that holds the component parts of protons and neutrons together, as well as protons and neutrons themselves. Without this force nuclear fusion couldn't take place in stars. And without nuclear fusion, there would be no end of a star's life in an immense explosion, and thus no visible matter in the universe of seemingly endless variety. So this song is also about matter and the universe's way of organizing itself. And the most wonderful organization of matter that we know of is the human brain. It's the universe organizing matter in a way that allows itself to question itself. It's amazing that the universe can create something that's capable of creating its own virtual (or is it real), universe, As Carl Sagan said, "We are a way for the universe to know itself." Unnecessary information follows, may or may not be of interest: Short description of subtle/prominent effects used: The first 30 seconds uses an auto-volume effect to change the guitar's attack to give it a very subtle backwards-record/clicky type feel/sound. At 1:23 (and throughout parts of the rest of the song) I make heavy use of a pitch glide to give a sort of simulated feedback as well as in some cases an emphasis of blooming higher frequencies at the end of a notes life. I also use the pitch glide in the distorted backing track to achieve a nice simultaneous stereo separation/chorus (no double tracking going on). Any other uses for these effects? Main solo starts at 2:34 and is mostly melodic in nature with a flurry of notes towards the end. Then the song changes feel at 4:30 in preparation for the ending, which is upbeat and tries to be uplifting. Everything you hear (except drums of course) is just an instrument through an HD500X only. No elaborate processing going on in the DAW. Only a multiband compressor, louderizer, and limiter on the master track. So this could be a good example of what the HD500X can do. Anyway, I've attached all the patches I've made for this song to this post. The lead patch actually has two variations because there's a tempo change at 1:23 from 66 to 60. So the only thing different is the delay. The spacey clean patch and the distorted backing patch I think would work on an HD500, but the rest only work on an HD500X. Pickups are Dimarzio Evolution neck, single coil middle, and bridge. Lead parts are all bridge pickup except the first 30 seconds, which is neck. Bass pickups are Nordstrand Big Singles. The u799 in the bass patch filename indicates where the EQ (mid-switch, bass, mid, treble) on the bass was set when recorded. Prime Vinculum HD500X Patches.zip
