Re: holdsworthian delaze
So Jon, Have you tried the series/parallel configuration of delay's. I wish
I could because I dig the modulation he get's from them. Like on House of
Mirrors. And I think maybe the reason he shrugged you off Kim is because
were in a suit and he likes people who are more laid back. And how can one
be laid back in a suit. I'm sure he liked the product but it's not STEREO
like Allan likes. AND he proabably figured that there are too many people
doing looping these days.
