Many legendary guitarists are known for their innovative use of guitar effects to create their unique sonic identities. They're able to craft the perfect guitar tone for each song they play, by combining various amps, mics and guitar pedals. Thankfully, you don't have to bust the bank to get similar sounds... That's because digital audio processing has reached the point where analog guitar gear can be faithfully reproduced with plugins "in the box". In this course, trainer and guitarist Gregg Fine explores the tone of the following 3 guitarists and explains how to recreate them with plugins:
One of the most distinctive sounds in pop-rock guitar come from U2's guitarist, The Edge. With its unique use of delays, he was able to craft the huge guitar sound heard in hits like Where the Streets Have No Name, With Or Without you, and Sunday Bloody Sunday.
Andy Summers from The Police is well known for its interesting use of guitar FX like the MXR Dynacomp and Maestro Echoplex, which contributed greatly to the success of hits like Message In a Bottle, Don't Stand So Close to Me and Every Breath You Take.
David Gilmour from Pink Floyd continues to inspire generations of guitarists with its soulful playing and highly unique tone. By constantly experiments with different guitar pedals, from fuzz to modulation, he created the signature tone heard in Comfortably Numb, Money and so many other hits.
Whatever DAW or plugins you use, get ready to recreate the sound of these 3 guitar legends "in the box", and incorporate these techniques into your own music hits!
