Dual engine rack effects for guitar

I have a marshall tsl 100 head which has a seperate effects loop for the clean channel and a seperate fx loop for the crunch and lead channels. Currently i am running my boss chorus pedal on the clean fx loop and my boss delay pedal and boss pitch shifter on the crunch and lead fx loop. I want to essentially have seperate delays and reverbs on the clean and crunch/lead channels so instead of adding another delay pedal on the clean loop and seperate reverb pedals on each fx loop could i not just add a programmable rack effects unit that has two processors. I.e. the rack would simultaneously connect to both effects loops on my amp and run two different programs i.e. one program for each effects loop. So it might run a reverb, chorus and delay on the clean and a different reverb and or delay on the crunch/lead loop when i switch channels on my amp? Also i would like a footswitch unit that would say add a delay to my reverb or a chorus and delay etc. Any ideas? Tc G Major 2 or Lexicon Mx400xl? Midiverb 4 although it says that midiverb can only run 3 effects at once, does that mean i could have 3 seperate effects running on each of my effects loops? Please advise as surely this will save me spending £100s of pounds on more seperate pedals to add to my effects loops.

Using sidechain to get a rhythmic effect in VST plugins

I'd like to experiment with the kind of rhythmic control over an instrument's signal level synced to a track as Johnny Marr did with his guitar on 'How Soon Is Now' in which a drum machine is inserted into a compressor's sidechain (see this YouTube demo).

I use Cubase AI which has a VSTDynamics processor with a sidechain function, though I don't think it can be used this way. Is there a free VST compressor/gate that enables its sidechain to be controlled by a rhythmic input? Perhaps someone will educate me on how to achieve what I want.

Free sample packs and sound effects for you.

Hello guys. I know websites that music producers can use to score free samples and loops for their music. The secret is knowing where to look. So, I’ve made the process even easier by compiling a list of websites that offer free samples and loops that you can use in your next project. Many of these sites vary from major sound databases like Freesound . org to small blog sites dedicated to a particular niche.

Guitar effect order.

This is going to come across as a stupid question from someone who has played guitar for over 47 years... but..
What order would you put chorus, delay in?. I have mostly played acoustic guitars all these years. The last time I really dabbled in single effects units plugged into each other, I'm pretty sure I just went with whatever sounded good, used flanger, chorus, phaser, delay, compressor, EQ.

With the use of my Apollo, I can put a unison amp on input then chain 3 more effects on the channel. At the moment I use a Roland RE-201 and the Distressor, I then aux on the Apollo console to an EMT-140 for a nice plate reverb. The overall tone sounds nice now, but I have a chorus I am dying to try too, but should I just dive in again, or do you guys have a best chain way?.

When you've done laughing at me, an answer would be appreciated :D.



How do I make this Trap rising / falling synth effect sound?

It's heard in some trap songs. I've heard young chop was the one to first design it, but I'm really not sure on that. I haven't been finding much information on it. I'm wanting to nearly exactly replicate it. Though, I'm not concerned about the water bubble noises, just the synth(s). If anybody knows how, please share, thank you.

Someone shared a sample which was called "bubble_down", not sure from what pack, and I've attached mp3 files of it normal and reversed, and both pitched and slowed 2 octaves in case it helps figure it out, but you can just do that in your daw. and here's some video examples. @47 seconds

Noob question about Rack effects to USB interface!

Hi everyone,

I'm reasonably new to recording and have never used Rack Effects before. I have been given an Alesis Micorverb 4. Now this is the stupid question bit -

Can I run my guitar into the input of the Alesis and then a cable from the output to the USB audio interface I am using? I would presume not as there is a left (mono) and right output on the Microverb. I am using Logic Pro X.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance
