<< Nevertheless, I would like to ask you a question: does your
sound-generation arsenal include an Eventide device of any kind?
Are you willing to share with me any info on your gear used in
your music? I am in the process of building my bedroom studio and I
would welcome any advice/opinion on any piece of sound gear. Of
course, I wouldn't mind to tell you about what I've got so far... :-) >>
Nope. I'd love an Eventide device but they are much beyond my budget.
I've got quite a lot of stuff but it's been aquired over a long period of
time (not all at once). Buying even a low-end Eventide would problay be
a quick way of winding up in divorce court.
My signal chain starts with a Duncan equipped Gibson RD Artist guitar
with a Roland GK-2A hex-pickup connecting me to my trusty old Roland
GR-1 guitar synth. From there it goes to an ART SGE-2000 Express,
Big Briar Moogerfooger, a pair of Boss RPS-10 pitch shifter delays,
2 Lexicon Vortexes, an Alesis Microverb III, Emu Proteus III, Rocktron
12-channel mixer and 2 Oberheim Echoplex Digital Pros. I also use a
little Akai S-20 phrase sampler to play various stored ambient or
rhythmic samples*. Along with a Marshall 8008 power amp this more or
less fills my 12-space rack. I play in stereo through 2 pairs of Seymour
Duncan 1x12 cabs. I play fingerstyle with Ernie Ball metal finger picks
and sometimes with as many as 2 ebows.
*I create these samples with a combination of other tools/instruments
including a Lakewood acoustic guitar, a Yamaha DJX keyboard, a Casio
MIDI Horn, an electrified kalimba (or m'bira) and a Turkish instrument
called a cünbüs (kind of a mandolin/banjo hybrid that never plays in
tune) and various computer programs on my Mac including Hyperprism,
Groovemaker and Rebirth.
Boy that looks like a boatload when you list it all out like that.
Anywho, I hope that was helpful. Now it's your turn...
