Boosting up those volume swells!

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by Robobop, Feb 20, 2008.


  1. Hey guys.

    Just wondering if anyone uses any effects to enhance volume swells. I do heaps of swells throughout my band's set, and have decided that they need a little something more than just bass, perhaps to make it sound like a full orchestra, haha. What does everyone else use?!

    And no violin stuff, thanks, something more spacey and full!

    Thanks.

    HOG -> QTron makes a pretty neato sound IMO. :D

  5. some delay. You can't hear individual notes while you swell, it just makes the swell run into itself and get grander and bigger.

    the 'auto swell' delay on the line 6 delay modeler is pretty amazing for making huge washy swells.

  7. The "Space Station" model on the Digitech EX-7 sounds just like what you're looking for. It sounds like a full string section, but with a bunch of reverb and delay as well.

    +1 Put a delay after your volume, maybe distortion before. It will sound huge.
