I covered Bulb. In the wrong key. by benreaves published on 2011-11-28T13:47:25Z I was playing around with my PreSonus AudioBox 1818VSL and Guitar Rig 4, and managed to create a pretty ambient tone with a similar vibe to that of Bulb's in one of his AxeFX II patch demos. So I covered the demo to demo my own patch. ... in the wrong key. I was one half step too low. This patch uses a noise reduction bank of seven crossovers and eight noise reduction modules. I then ran through a treble booster into the Hot Plex model (Marshall 1959 Super Lead 100). Using a Control Room unit, I mixed two dynamic and one ribbon microphone(s) to get a wide, clear sound with a little saturation. To begin the ambience section, I added a tape echo module. Set for the left head to play at a dotted eight and the right to play at a quarter. Medium high feedback and maximum echo output were used. That went into a tube compressor, evening out the sound and saturating some more. This way, you can hear more of the echo when notes sustain but the original sound becomes prominent when notes begin. From there, it was into the Octoverb module. This is where the flange-y, pitch bending reverb comes from. Knobs "size" and "bass trap" are at maximum and 7/8, respectively. Both channels using this patch were compressed slightly by iZotope Ozone 4 before heading to master, mainly just to accentuate and regulate the midrange. And I did all that with my crappy Epiphone Les Paul Standard. Bass is also Guitar Rig, but I did some heavy EQ-ing to get the deep notes. Superior Drummer 2. That is all.
