Dual engine rack effects for guitar

Member for

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.

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.

Noob question about Rack effects to USB interface!

Member for

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

Electric Guitar Tremolo Effects - Analog vs Digital

Hey everyone,

I am interested in hearing your thoughts on analog vs digital tremolo effects, especially on electric guitar.

To be clear, I am not talking about what Fender (erroneously) calls "tremolo arms" on guitar, also known as whammy bars, which is actually a vibrato effect. I am talking about a real tremolo effect that modifies the dynamics of a signal, not the frequency.

Multi instrument - using multiple effects from one unit

I have an t.c.M-One XL multi effects unit and I'm wondering if it's possible to utilize a few different effects at the same time using buses in logic though separate program channels via the [[url=http://[/URL]="…"]Multi Instrument[/]="…"]Multi Instrument[/] object?
