More Loopy Stuff.
Here's some more stuff from the Lexicon Applications Notes for Vortex.
I've also added these to my homepage at
and select [LOOP].
For the sick and twisted: Vortex also provides some very outside effects.
Bleen B and
Fractal B are completely outrageous. Bleen B is an echo diving into ring
Play a melodic line and listen to how the effect takes it over.
Fractal B is a looping echo that devours itself. Play a melodic line
through the effect,
and as the echo continues, the notes stack up to form a chord. This pair
for an amazing morph.
Set the two effects up as a register pair. Hold down a chord or single
are great for this) and morph between the two! Also try experimenting with
A and B for Techno looping effects.
One great trick is to use Deja Vu B as a looper. An expression pedal is
very helpful here,
though not necessary. Assign the expression pedal to adjust the envelope.
Then, with the
pedal in the Up position you can capture a phrase for infinite looping. By
pushing the pedal
all the way down, you can play over the top without adding to the loop. In
the middle you
can add music at different levels. This configuration can be saved in a
register so that the
pedal is assigned within the register.
Monitoring Systems / Speakers...
My own system: as far as monitor speakers go, for live performance I use a
JC-120 Jazz Chorus amp for my guitar in stereo. It's used more as a
monitor than an actual amp, with my preamps giving me much of my final
For studio applications, I use a JVC stereo integrated amplifier with some
stereo speakers that I got for far cheaper than can be believed which
gives me a very clean
sound. I also have within that monitoring system a Barcus Berry Sonic
Maximizer which is
applied to final mixes.
I really should diagram this out, but it's in constant change so...
