This sounds quite nice
Genrewise; its not generally my bag. But the tones here are great. I haven't seen a lot of his demos but the ones I have watched always sound good.I grew up in the Thames Valley. Of similar age, I remember seeing Slowdive drinking in the same pub as me, when we were all only just old enough to drink haha.
I might have to buy this, just for old time's sake.
Mike Hermans always demos on my amp (Bella) so I can be sure what it'll sound like
... Few of these pedals translate in a full mix ...
Still holds true today. Translate in a mix is never the most important thing in shoegaze/post-whatever genres. If a reverb or delay has very subtle intricate qualities they’ll be all over it just because, and it will be all totally lost in a wall of sound (noise)….. but it’s thereI suspect that the words "translate in a full mix" are completely alien to OG shoegazers; they certainly were to me at their age and with their same aesthetic in 1989 😄
I didn't know such a thing existed. I have spent the last few days attempting to integrate the SY1000 and FM9 together. It's been loud in my jam room. From profanity directed at Boss more than actual music volumeSounds great but reading the blurb it's less a recreation than an "inspired by" style thing. Mono and no delay either. The fx500 manual lays out the parameters for that patch so anyone with a modem modeler can cop the vibe.
@JiveTurkey have you tried the Axe-Fx version I whipped up?
This was a straight "copy stuff from the manual into blocks on the Axe and full in the gaps" style thing, but I recently got a yamaha Fx900 which can run the same settings and it sounds close enough for shoegaze.
Man the SY was fun with dual amps in the fractal, especially panning individual strings around. Editing patches though - I feel your pain.
