Hi everybody
Here is a new Effectology show.

Effectology Vol. 19 "How to turn you guitar into a Moog synthesizer"

If you are guitar player and use effect pedals you owe a lot to the development of modular synthesizers.
When you look down at your pedal board what you are seeing is really the building blocks of a modular synthesizer.

In this episode I explore ways to turn your guitar into an analog synth.

If if you do not own these pedals, experiment with ones you do have using these principles.

Pedal settings and how-to:

Thanks for watching,
Bill Ruppert

Really nice job Bill! Switched On Bach was the album that got me interested in synths to begin with.

Question - before the S.O.B. sample - what were you using to make the pad sound?

Thanks Dave!
The pad sound was produced using a freeze pedal and a Stereo Memory Man with Hazarai.
I froze one chord looped it and then changed the pitch of the chord with the delay knob.
Then looped the original cord again against the re-pitched chord. It wound up making a huge cluster of notes or a giant chord.
