Re: droning questions

Any delay line capable of producing a delay shorter than - say 100th of a
second will do this. Flangers with their lfo's disabled work fine. I used 
get a pretty convincing bagpipe drone with an Ebow and an electric mistress
flanger with the lfo knocked off some time ago. Tuning can be tricky with 
analogue device like
that but my Boss SE50 worked a treat. The effect is exaggerated using
feedback. The Alseis Quadraverb had an effect called resonance, (or
something) which could be made to sequence resonant frequencies triggered 
midi events - great fun : )
