TC Electronics G-Force question


gw sound

Recommended Posts

Hello-

I am trying to create a patch with delay a certain way- when the delays come, I want them to have a softer attack than the origional plucked sound. I believe it involves creating a reverb and connecting only the reverb sound to the input of the delay. I just can't quite figure it out. Anyone done this on the G-Force and able to explain?

Thanks in advance

While I haven't run a G-Force much (cool units, definitely a step above most "multi-effects"), doesn't it allow for "ducking" delays? That is, delays who's repeat volume-levels are dependant on the straight input-signal's levels, so that they "duck" down behind the straight-sound when you play, but are a little louder when you aren't playing? Follow me?

 

Also, if there's any way to impart a warmer, more lo-fi "vintage" tape or analog flavor to the delays- via treble roll-off and/or degradation in the feedback-loop- that should soften their attack compared to the straight-sound.

 

Your idea of sending only the reverb to the delay-input is a good one, I'd bet that'd sound very cool, I'll have to try that the minute I have the oportunity to! If you get that sussed out- I'd imagine it's a matter of tweaking sub-menu mixer parameters- also try putting chorus/modulation effects on the reverb (and/or delay) only, leaving the straight-signal unchorused. That's a great sound, and used less than I'd expect!

 

Best of luck, and keep us posted, let me know how that works out for you!

Sounds to me like you want to set a gate on the delay signal only. There might be an attack envelope parameter for the delay. Otherwise, is it possible to route the signal in parallel -- insert the gate before the delayed signal but not the main signal -- or can the effects only be in series?

Hey, that'd be cool, I betcha! Great idea!

 

" ...insert the gate before the delayed signal but not the main signal... "

-OR- after the delay repeats, or in the delay's feedback-loop (if it's available in the G-Force)...
