So I'm trying to recreate something similar to some of the insane sounds the band HEALTH achieves with their effects pedals - namely a few sounds from Die Slow and one in particular from Tears.
Die Slow: HEALTH :: DIE SLOW :: MUSIC VIDEO - YouTube
(song) Health - Die Slow(Live in Vancouver) - YouTube
(more helpful live video showing pedal manipulation)
The initial sliced-up synth sounding noise is awesome - does anyone have any details on how it may have been achieved? I know they use a Boss SL-20 Slicer for the slicing itself, but I have no idea what that insane input sound is - he seems to loop a specific sequence from it, slice it, and then the band plays to the sequence.
What I'd really love to know, though, is how they achieve that other distorted / sliced sound that starts at 0:32 in the live video and 0:20 in the normal song. It seems to be following the slicer sequence but when he tweaks a single knob on a teal colored pedal (not sure what that is) it breaks the slicing sequence and creates this insane bending feedback sound that I'm in love with. Anyone have any idea how this was achieved? Or what was used to create the input noises?
And finally, the last sound I was wondering about was this: Max Payne 3 Soundtrack HEALTH - TEARS [Full Version] - YouTube
That crazy lead synth / distorted thing in the bridge. Any ideas as to what some of those beautiful tones are?
