Zoom 1201

I know, I know, it may be a crap box, but I love that thing!

What's yours?

Boss CE-300. Costs $60 bucks at musicgoround, makes other synths sound enough like a Juno that I sold my Juno.

Digitech StudioQuad V2. I don't know why it gets maligned so much. Can sound fantastic. It's no Eventide for sure, but can do good things. It was almost my only effects for quite a while, and I learnt it pretty well.

Maybe add to that an XD-5 and an RM50.

Free softies as well, of course. I still like AXS 2.03+.

A dirty tascam portastudio. Sometimes running audio into one of those cassette to cd car adaptors and then through it's EQ.

Good one, I've done that and it can get great results (epecially if the tape is a bit screwed up!)

Still use some old effects low end wise, Alesis MicroGate/Microverb/MicroEQ in one rack, Quadraverb II, Boss SE-50, Digitech DSP128+, Oberheim Cyclone, Yamaha SPX-90.

Not so low end, more mid range:
Lexicon PCM41/42/70, MXR-126 Flanger/Doubler, Korg Wavestation A/D.

Really want an Eventide Harmonizer 3000 series or better, someday!

Big Muff. Put a 1-osc monosynth through it, crank the resonance of the synth filter, and you get a pseudo hard sync sound out.

I gotta check out that Boss CE-300...

The Roland VP-70 can do some extremely strange things if properly abused, and I've gotten sounds out of the Yamaha RX5 that I haven't heard anywhere else. I also manage to work a Korg KR-55B into the most inappropriate places.

Trillian plus Moog filter (or any good outboard ana filter) equals awesome.

Dono though its been working well for me on some new stuff. Trying a new direction, but I've been into the heavy future cyborg german techno thing and Trillian plus Moog filter phonez.

DMD 1&2 are pretty stellar for awesome deep chest hitters for kicks and drums.

big muff eh? i'll have to try this, i know i've got one laying around.

2nd for the tascam porta (I use a 488 mkii)...nothing beats recording your tracks and then sloooowing everything down a bit. or even tweaking the playback knob for tape-induced pitchbend!
