Re: artifacts

i do similar things with a boss dd-5, and then run it
into the rang. i've come up with some bad ass rythm
loops just by running a long delay (which is 2 secs on
the dd-5) w/feedback at 100%, layering it up, and then
just destroying it by tweaking the delay time. then
add some more layers, and continue tweaking. the
purpose is random and scary rythm loops. i'll also
unplug the guitar and scrape the end of the chord
around on my head, picking up the bristly sounds of a
buzz cut. then i tweak the delay time until it's a
super cool rythm pattern. i often use very short delay
times for this, getting kind of a ring mod effect.

take care,
