Slowdive/shoegaze Tone

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is the right forum for this post, if it's not, feel free to direct it and/or me to the proper place!

 

Just uploaded a shoegazey type of tone loosely based on Neil Halstead's rig from back in the day. It defaults as sort of a plain old clean tone with just some delay and chorus, good for strumming out chords. Mess with the expression pedal and distortions, however, and you'll end up with a giant wall of noise. The expression pedal controls the reverb saturation. It can get a little out of hand at 100%, though, so watch out! The tube compressor was added as a last minute thought, just to give the clean tone a little extra "oomph." I recommend turning it off if you have the delays, distortion and reverb at full blast.

 

And because I have a Variax and why the hell not, it force opens the Chime-1 patch, which is a Rickenbacker, guitar of choice for many old school Shoegazers!

 

Would love some feedback or suggestions. Feel free to modify and mess with it!

Big fan of the slowdive sound, will give it try once I've got my new laptop up and running. THNX for your post, Regards Ron

PS: Have you tried any settings for Cocteau Twins (Robin Guthrie) ? I'm finding it quite elusive to get just right.

really like the tone, kill the tremolo and dial the reverb down a touch and its killer
