Re: Recommend me a wild delay pedal

So many fun delay pedals out there.
For the hazy washed out thing, I’ve been really into the Demedash pedal I traded for. It’s got loads of character. No tap tempo, but I don’t miss it.

Re: how often are you using non cardioid patterns?

Omni for my Oktava mc012, super close to the 14th fret of an acoustic for finger-picked stuff. I’ve been experimenting with lots of acoustic mic’ing lately, but this old standby just works in finding a nice balance.

Re: Andy Martin, Knopfler, Buckingham..who are some awesome fingerstyle players?

Richard Thompson has a beautiful approach to fingerstyle playing - really delicate and lyrical. And I like John Fahey for the opposite reasons - he seemed to get some grit and twang in his playing.

Re: What are your influences?

This is fun to read.

When I was a kid, I was so taken by Ben E. King's Stand By Me. It sounded like the perfect expression of emotion. I'm still chasing that.

Yeap, she is the real deal when it comes to synth land.
For sure. The Grandmother is a wicked fun synth, by the way. Not sure if you’re looking for a poly, but for a really great mono, it’s excellent. 100% wet spring reverb sequences on that thing are my jam and bread.

Re: limiting busses in rock music - digital

I have a template in Reaper I use often, with four busses (Vocals, Drums & Bass, Guitars, Keys & FX) feeding the master buss. No brickwall limiting, but I do like compression on the busses more often than not, though typically in the 1-2 dB range. My four instrument busses then go out as pairs to a ...

Re: How loud do you listen?

I use a dB meter app on my phone and usually monitor around 65-70 dB's. I don't have a great room and only monitor through some smaller Adams, so I find the more I excite the room with volume, the more out of balance everything gets. I end up referencing a lot through some open-back Beyer headphones...

Re: Recording The Beatles book - fyi

Holy cow. Got it when it was first issued, and mine’s a little worse for the wear. I wouldn’t sell it, and would love to see it reissued so more people could get a copy of it. Never fails to inspire.

Re: Identify this drum machine sound
