Effectology, Vol.13 “Pink Floyd Synth Effects”

Posted 2/25/2010

Sonic master Bill Ruppert reproduces the legendary Pink Floyd synth textures from “Welcome To The Machine .” Using only his guitar and the perfect blend of EH pedals, Bill re-creates the amazing sound-scapes that made this recording special. Each EH pedal provides its own magic to reveal the complexity and textures of the EMS VC3 synthesizer with stunning accuracy.

Please note: Bill will be in the EHX Forums to discuss his sounds, settings, and process. We hope you join us there.
