Software to create these guitar effects.

Hi There,

I've been trying to understand how to recreate the chorus/pitch drifting effects in these two tracks in software.

The first is by Beach House. The effect in question it comes in at 0:40 on the lead guitar.]YouTube

On the record the guitarist actually uses a slide and gently drifts back and forth across the fretboard, it also sounds like there is some chorus in there too.

The second is by NYPC. The effect in question comes in at 0:07 and again is on the lead guitar.

This one sounds like its doubled and has some fast pitch modulation going on.

Any suggestions and help would be much appreciated.

Just my opinion, the first effect sounds like modulated long delays. Amp farm's digital delay does that and I'd expect many delays that emulate an early 80's digital delay will get you what you want. The second effect can be gotten from a vibrato pedal emulation, a ring modulator, or a flanger with a narrow sweep but bordering on resonance.

Why don't you find their pedalboards online. I'm pretty sure beach house dude uses just delays and verbs with his slide and kinda moving alittle up and down to apply natural vibrato.

There's some high quality live videos of BH online. Maybe you can hear it in a different context.
