One guitar player, sounds like two Multi-Effects Processors (HW)

One guitar player, sounds like two



YouTube

Music starts @ :55

This is not the first time I have heard this, but I have always been curious.

I am pretty sure there is no 2nd guitar player backstage. I know that some acts do that, but I really don't think that's the case here.

I am wondering how they do this. Do they split the signal, and delay one side a bit? And does it sound like that in the arena, or is it the recording only?

a whole heap of gear potentially. eventide for thickening the sound but then there is spreading and probably some delay on left right. could be at least one pair of amps. maybe variacs for sag. there is some other guitar going on which you can hear under the solo's. so could be a second guitarist with a similar setup. otherwise it would be on backing I expect. the guitar has a floyd tremolo and the guitar is tuned down to D standard I believe.

I'm curious, what is it that Eventide algorithm is doing? I've played with the Eclipse, but which unit does this the best? I am in the middle of a recording project with only one gtr track per song, so this would be wonderful to use.

It really sounds great - as in, it doesn't sound like a slap back. So what then, mult the gtr? Send one out to an amp, the other to the eventide? Then, output the stereo eventide to two more amps? Pan 'em around?

the smartest setups i've seen (evh and many, many others) use a center channel with no efx, use the efx send (post preamp/eq) to go into the eventide and its stereo outputs to two additional combos/stacks.

eventide has a looong history of great devices: i'm mostly using two h3500 for guitars, one set to do just a few cents of dynamic pitch modulation/very short delays to widen the stereo image and the other one to add whatever efx is needed (ducking delays, pitch shifters etc.)

orville/h8000 allow for more i/o's and even more sophisticated processing (various threads here on gz) and then there is the new h9000...
