How to make HD400 sound like Sitar?
by indigobjn on 2012-08-25 19:16:10.5820

Hi all,

Is it possible to make a preset on HD400 to sound like Sitar? If yes, please help me with finding this tone.

Thank You,

Not possible with a standard guitar over implemented effects, but possible with a JamesTyler Variax guitar.

Demo see here:">">

But you can try this one, better than nothing:

fx 1: Preamp (from EQ category), change HPF about 350 - 500 Hz, because a sitar doesn't have bass sound.

fx 2: Pitch Glide (from category Pitch), change pitch to +12.0, Mix at about 50 - 60%. This will generate a mixed octaved sound.

The information above may not be current, and you should direct questions to the current forum or review the manual.
