"With Ichabod on the burn in test bench earlier in the Summer at MMM headquarters working with the breadboarded sequencer (will be available in a few months) and two foot pedals to control the filters and volume control. I'm using the Voltage Controlled Control Voltage mixers with some gate mixing to produce the triggers for the percussion sounds. Audio was direct to 2 track stereo with some reverb."

"The awesome MFB-503 analogue drum machine. Could be compared to a 909 in some ways. Really great bit of gear."

" Electro-Harmonix Effectology, Vol.7 Reverb Tricks

Welcome to Electro-Harmonix's "Effectology" series, in which we create a remarkable collection of sounds using just a regular guitar and EHX effect pedals!
No keyboards,samplers or midi pickups were used.

In today's episode studio musician Bill Ruppert demonstrates some old and new effects using reverb.

Each one of the four sounds in this video has the reverb positioned in unusual places within the signal chainproof once again there is no correct way to order your effect pedals.

There is a clip of the new Cathedral Stereo reverb using the brilliant "Infinite" switch.
Its really a beautiful sounding reverb.

EHX Pedals featured:Soul Preacher,Holy Grail,MicroSynth,English Muff'n, Stereo Memory Man.

For more information on these pedals and actual settings please vist the Electro- Harmonix Forum:"
