The Effects-Driven Life

It turns out that guitar pedal shop Electro-Harmonix has a pedal guru, Bill Ruppert. He’s been showing what you can do using pedals as modules in signal chains in which one leans into the so-called Send loop, into which the Wet sound, or effect-alone sonic product, is fed.

He gets impressive, even magical at times, sounds–as this video demonstrates.

Moving effects into the DAW using GuitarRig and other software makes doing similar sonic transformations even more accessible.
