Gear Wanker thread Mk II

I guess one consideration is what amp/speakers do you use if you’re doing full time guitar-as-synth. DI out into the PA? Something a bit more hi-fi than a 2x12 cab?

Don’t know what actual synth players use tbhtbf

yeah it’s a good question. i believe it must be possible to make it sound OK through a PA but it never, ever does. could imagine like a super clean fender twin or something working quite well. def food for thought :face_with_monocle:

Should probably just find out what Sarah Lipstate/Noveller does for a live rig and copy her since that’s her whole deal

Obviously

here are a couple of examples (super quiet as it is instrument level)

mel9 cello (with freqout doing sub bass feedback) https://voca.ro/14ruKlHc9ixN
mel9 low choir https://voca.ro/16bzDvdpUSD8

think the mel9 does a good job of making one guitar sound like more than just one guitar

Plus polyphony. Take that, flute!

the flute setting is so good, often have it as a background pad at a level where it is not to prominent but just seems to enhance the overall sound

A few bands here have dedicated guitarists for mad FX. Works really well as they’ve the freedom to fill so much space in an unconventional way.
